Philosophical Dilemmas

A Pro and Con Introduction to the Major Questions and Philosophers

Fourth Edition

Phil Washburn

New to this Edition:

  • A major revision: Fifty-four new, brief essays (two in each chapter) on great philosophers who held conflicting viewpoints on the issues covered enrich the discussion of each philosophical question
  • The volume has been reorganized so that these essays and the philosophers discussed appear in approximate chronological order, from Plato and Protagoras to Wittgenstein and Searle
