Pretty good introductory text 15 mars 2013
Par Doug Erlandson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"Archetypes of Wisdom" by Douglas J. Soccio provides a different approach from the typical introductory philosophy text. Such texts generally fall into one of two categories. Either they are anthologies of the writings of the major philosophical figures past and present, or they are authored texts that simply tell us about what the great philosophers wrote (or, if they are organized by area of philosophy, what ethics is, what theory of knowledge is, what metaphysics is, and so forth). The former tend to be difficult for the introductory student to wade through, since most philosophical writing is slow going. Thus, it weighs heavily on the instructor to try to interpret these writings in a way that students can understand. The latter, while sometimes (though not always) easier to understand, tend to import the author's particular biases and interpretations.

Soccio's text does a good job of avoiding these pitfalls. Although most of the writing is his own, he includes significant passages from the philosophers he is covering. Moreover, he deftly weaves in biographical material and anecdotes concerning these philosophers with their ideas and in some cases shows how the lives of these thinkers influenced their philosophy. And the text is amply illustrated with pictures and sometimes even with cartoons. There are also frequent "Philosophical Query" boxes that pose questions related to the text that encourage the student to think through the issues at hand. Finally, each chapter ends with a summary of the main points of that chapter as well as a set of questions for further reflection.

Because Soccio focuses primarily on just a couple philosophers from each era, other philosophers of significance, although their views are described briefly, tend to get short shrift. For example, in discussing British Empiricism, Locke and Berkeley get fairly brief mention, while Hume's views on a variety of issues are discussed in detail. Why a greater focus should be placed on Hume than on his predecessors is unclear. (Other philosophers of the period, such as Thomas Reid, are not mentioned at all.) Similarly, the twentieth century is represented by Wittgenstein and Heidegger. While it is true that they were both influential thinkers, so were many other philosophers (such as Bertrand Russell), who would have been equally good representatives of the era. While this is a drawback it does not significantly detract from the overall value of this book.

I am an RN and I recently enrolled in WJU to obtain my BSN/MSN. I enjoy reading this book. It was good price, shipped fast, and accurate product description.

not compatible with kindle for windows 8 or kindle cloud. Someone should let you know before you are screwed for school. 31 août 2014

I purchased this etextbook for college. I have an open book test to complete this weekend, but I can't get the book to open. Apparently it only works with one kindle app (not mine because it's for windows 8). It was recommended to download kindle-cloud, which I thought was a great idea. One problem with that-this book is not compatible with that either. Customer Service let me know I had two options. 1. just by a kindle tablet to open it with (no extra money for another tablet) or 2. return the item (won't help me take my test.) So I'm pretty frustrated and highly doubt I will pass my test. I've never seen the contents of the book. Not happy at all!!
i love this book 9 février 2014

I am more than happy about my used book. It arrived on time which was great because I had a quiz that I needed to study for and it arrived in the nick of time. This book is very easy to read and understand.... I find it fun but then again I really like my philosophy class. I like the comparisons it makes between modern times/situations and the past because it makes you really evaluate the world we live in and the things that drive us.
It offered great information on highlighted philosophers 12 janvier 2015

Interesting topic. It offered great information on highlighted philosophers, as it is a book for introductory philosophy. I enjoyed renting from this party as well. I received my book promptly without a problem.
