Philosophy and the Human Condition

An Anthology

Brian R. Clack and Tyler Hower

  • A wide selection of substantial readings from philosophy and religion, including western, non-Western, traditional, and contemporary sources
  • A flexible, historical organization centered around key topics allows instructors to select the passages that most suit the way they design their courses in human nature or introductory philosophy
  • An extended introduction to philosophy in the opening chapter addresses each of six principal issues that will be prominent in the reading selections drawn from the history of philosophy--the relation of mind and body; personal immortality; freedom of the will; the question of whether humans are naturally benevolent or naturally brutal; the nature and possibility of human happiness; and philosophical issues relating to race and gender
  • Introductions accompanying each reading provide an overall sweep of the philosopher's or text's account of the human condition
