Philosophy: The Basics is the book for anyone coming to philosophy for the first time. Nigel Warburton's popular book gently eases the reader into the world of philosophy. Each chapter considers a key area of philosophy, explaining and exploring the basic ideas and themes.
The third edition updates and expands the main text, and is the perfect companion to Philosophy: Basic Reading. These two books will together make for an ideal and straight forward introduction to philosophy.
Direct, simple, yet in depth in some aspects. A great introduction book of philosophy, it definitely made me more interested in the subject and encourages me to read on.
