This Instructor's Manual, which will be available to adopters of the book, is designed to assist you in introducing the world of Philosophy to your students. We begin with an Introduction to the textbook contents, including the various pedagogical features that it includes. A detailed outline of the book as a Contents list follows. Then we have Content Summaries and Goals that outline the major themes of each chapter and offer a focus for the Instructor and Student. Some Discussion Text is provided by chapter, for cultivating thoughtful class discussion. This is followed by a Topical Links, Web Links and Activities section and Suggestions for Further Reading, to help students to think broadly and comparatively about new ideas they encounter. The second half of the Instructor's Manual contains an extensive section of Test Questions, including multiple choice and essay questions for each chapter. Answer keys are also provided.
A Website Study Guide to accompany Philosophical Readings is available online. The Chapter Summaries and Goals, Discussion Text, Links and Further Reading sections are organized to help students better comprehend the text. Additionally, Self-Quizzes consist of multiple choice questions selected from those provided at the end of this Instructor's Manual. Also included on the Instructor's Resources section of the website are downloadable PowerPoint slide presentations for each chapter, to be used as lecture aids by instructors.
