Review: "In this revised and updated edition of a classic introductory text, Martin Hollis leads his readers through the age-old philosophical questions of free choice and human nature, appearance and reality, reason and experience, and to newer ones or rationality and morality, other minds and inner selves, and the relation between the natural and human worlds. Using theories and examples ranging from Plato, Descartes, Hume and Kant to T.S. Eliot and Sherlock Holmes, the author paints a delightfully vivid picture of the discipline that is a perfect start for students beginning courses in philosophy or for anyone meeting the subject for the first time."--BOOK JACKET.
