Now in its fourth edition, Nigel Warburton''s best-selling 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.

  • What is philosophy?
  • Can you prove God exists?
  • Is there an afterlife?
  • How do we know right from wrong?
  • Should you ever break the law?
  • Is the world really the way you think it is?
  • How should we define Freedom of Speech?
  • Do you know how science works?
  • Is your mind different from your body?
  • Can you define art?

For the fourth edition, Warburton has added new sections to several chapters, revised others and brought the further reading sections up to date. If you''ve ever asked what is philosophy, or whether the world is really the way you think it is, then this is the book for you.

From the Publisher:

Philosophy: The Basics is the most successful short introduction to philosophy published in recent years. For the fourth edition, Warburton has added short sections to several chapters, revised others and brought the further reading sections up to date. New additions include sections on the environment, playing "God" in genetic science, Darwinian theory and free will, war, consciousness and the meaning of death and notion of an afterlife. This book is for anyone coming to philosophy for the first time.
This fourth edition of Philosophy: The Basics will be one of the first titles in the complete Basics redesign (which includes a new cover design and new text design).
