1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Alexander Boehm am 3. August 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Begeistert von anderen Teilen wie "Time" und "Quantum Theory" kaufte ich mir "Philosophy" in der Hoffnung als Neuling auf dem Gebiet ähnlich einfach und kompakt etwas darüber zu erfahren. Zuerst musste ich feststellen, dass diese Ausgabe vom Format viel kleiner ist als die anderen. Gut in der Badewanne aber ich hätts etwas größer bevorzugt.
Das Buch ordnet die Philosophie zeitlich und stellt dar, wie sich verschiedene Denkweisen weiterentwickeln und auch sehr oft ablösen. Und dieser Ansatz geht nicht recht auf. Denn offensichtlich wird in der Philosophie alle 20 Jahre ein weiterer "-issmus" erdacht und so stolpert man schwitzend vom IdealISSMUS zum Empirischen SkeptizISSMUS in das nächste Gedankengebäude. In diesen 176 Seiten scheint zu viel Information auf zu wenig Seiten gepresst worden zu sein. Ich als Philosophielaie hätte mir gewünscht, nicht jede Gedankenströmung der Vergangenheit zeigen zu wollen sondern sich etwas ausführlicher mit den wichtigsten Gebieten zu befassen. So und weil ich glaube, dass unser Universum in einer Kaffeebohne eingebettet ist, die mit anderen Kaffeebohnen und deren Universen in einem großen Kaffeebohnensack aufbewahrt werden, rufe ich hiermit den KaffeeISSMUS aus und genehmige mir eben solchen.

Format: Taschenbuch
even if you're wel-versed in philosophy, this is such a neat compilation of succinct right on capsules of the greatest thinkers, that it can jog the minds of those of us who know it all, but can't recall it like we used to.

Perfect quick reference 19. Januar 2005
Von thistle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For a long time I have looked for a one-page reference that could show me all the major philosophers, a quick sound bite about what each of them believed, and which school of philosophy each of them belonged to. This book has that on the last page. The addition of this little gem to what is already a great reference material for a basic understanding of philosophy earns this book 5 stars. If you are like me and would like to know something about everything (not everything about something) this book will serve you well.

philosophically clueless--until today 24. August 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Passing through my daughter's college bookstore I came across "Introducing Philosophy." Since I knew my younger son had a summer assignment which involved studing classical and Renaissance authors, I thought this book would be a great foundation. I read the first 67 pages on the plane returning home from my daughter's university, and couldn't wait to read the rest of the book. I haven't finished it yet, because my son is reading it and he says it's "crystal clear" and is helping him with his assignment---SCORE!!!!

Superficial coverage, but can point you to some lesser-known figures 26. September 2007
Von Christopher Culver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
INTRODUCING PHILOSOPHY, like all installments of the "Introducing..." series published by Totem Books, seeks to present academic subjects in a fun way by supplementing the text of an educator in the field with amusing pictures by an illustrator. Here Dave Robinson has written the text, and Judy Groves has produced the drawings.

The book generally introduces philosophy by presenting the "big questions" and then showing how various philosophers from ancient Greece to the present have answered them or, in some cases, have replaced them with even more pressing questions. The authors try to cover all major fields of philosopy, but epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy predominate, with philosophy of religion dropped after the discussion of Scholasticism, and aesthetics missing entirely.

INTRODUCING PHILOSOPHY's coverage is quite superficial, giving only a page to some major figures and not really getting to the point of what e.g. Parmenides thought. The authors also do not explain to the layman why the work of Derrida was so controversial within the academy. All in all, someone interested in the subject would be better off using Nigel Warburton's Philosophy: The Basics (Routledge, 2004) which is by no means perfect, but which is both rigorous and friendly.

Nonetheless, INRODUCING PHILOSOPHY can be a useful companion to other books for the attention it gives to less well-known figures. C.S. Peirce, W.V. Quine, Gottlob Frege are rarely presented in undergraduate basic philosophy courses, but they have some fascinating ideas I was inspired to read more about.

Gives a good feel of the thinkers and issues 3. Juli 2001
Von Chris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book gives a good feel for the major Western philosophers ranging from the ancient Greeks to Descartes, Hume, Hegel and Kant to Nietzsche, Marx, Feuerbach, Dewey and Sartre and how they have investigated epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, aesthetics and political forms. If you don't grasp everything completely don't worry; some of these fellows, particularly the post-modernists, need to be operated on by Ockham's razor.

Covers the Waterfront well 25. Mai 2010
Von Herbert L Calhoun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a quick and dirty introduction to Philosophy. It defines the primary questions of philosophy as: What is the nature of reality? What makes humans special? What is mind or consciousness? Can we be certain of anything? What is a valid argument? How should we behave towards each other? And: How should society be organized? Philosophy, the author tells us is a discipline organized to pursue answers to these and many similar questions. The major subcategories of the discipline are: Epistemology (questions about knowledge), Metaphysics (questions about the nature of time, space, god, cause, reality), Ethics (questions about good and evil), Aesthetics (questions about art and beauty), and political philosophy (questions about the organization of society). How these questions are pursued, has to do with methodology, the tools used to answer the questions.

Some believe that answers should evolve out of debate: that is out of the mechanics and art of how to ask questions properly. Others believe that "thinking about thinking" and questioning everything is the best tool. The book of course does not take sides on this important issues but proceeds to delve into the history and personalities of Philosophy beginning with the Egyptians who were good mathematicians but poor philosophers. But it then moves on to the Greeks who, at least in the Western World, are the acknowledged inventors of philosophy. They did this of course by challenging the worldview of religion. It was the Greeks who first refused to believe that religious answers were all there was to reality. They wanted to know what reality was made of? The preliminary answer they got was that it was made of air, fire, earth and water. Pythagoras however believed that mathematics held the secret to reality. And then, before the pre-Socratic era ended, came the "atomists," who believed that all matter could be "reduced" or broken down into ever smaller constituent components until the smallest possible, the atom was reached.

However, it was Socrates who believed that wisdom was a skill that could be taught and that virtue is knowledge, and who formally introduced thinking as a methodology. He and his contemporaries wrestled with questions such as "If we believe different things, how do we determine who is correct?" Ultimately, it was Socrates' view that man had to question everything, especially authority that got him condemned to death by "democrats" who forced him to drink hemlock. Despite this, it was his student Plato, who advanced the techniques of using "thinking about thinking" as the ultimate tool of philosophy. Through dialogue using a series of nested questions deductible from a central premise, Plato was able to prove that thought was indeed the ultimate instrument for answering the questions that revealed the underlying truths of philosophy. He also introduced the idea of ideal forms and most famously, the parable of the cave, in which reality was seen to be indistinguishable from a reflection of man's experiences depicted as shadows on a cave wall: Man was imprisoned by his experiences, which were little more than images on a cave wall.

It would take Aristotle to advance the ideas of both Socrates and Plato by formally linking philosophy to the tools of logic, that is, to inferences, both deductive and inductive. Arguments based on logic, propelled philosophy into a new era that has lasted for more than two millennia. And while there have been challengers, mostly from religion (the Stoics, the Epicureans, Skeptics, cynics, etc.), Aristotle's methods lasted until Rene Descartes' "Discourse on Method" introduced a way of further formalizing the systematization of knowledge. With a few procedural rules, and his most famous utterance "cogito ergo sum," Descartes used "doubt" as the new instrument that would lead philosophy into a new era of scientific thinking and methodology. After Descartes' Cartesian analysis of mind and body, philosophy was irrevocably changed. The battle between science and religion was finally brought out into the open and science was finally beginning to hold its own. There was hand-to-hand combat down the ages between the metaphysicians and the scientists up until the modern era of philosophy.

And although there was quite a bit of "backtracking," today the background noise of those arguments can still be heard and felt. Even today, in the quantum physical world, the question of what constitutes reality still remains the centerpiece of philosophical discussions. However, in the modern era new problems have arisen about the nature of knowledge and indeed meaning itself. Language is consistently being implicated as the saga continues ...
For a $7.00 book I guarantee that the reader is sure to get more than his money's worth. Five stars.
