  3. November Series of the Month: Key Debates in the History of Philosophy

    New students to the history of philosophy face a serious risk when first encountering the classic texts of the canon. They may oftentimes equate a summary of an important philosopher as the final word on that thinker. Lost in the introductions and primers to the great philosophers are the complexities and range of competing interpretations that result from close readings of the primary texts. Unlike any other undergraduate introduction in this field, Key Debates in the History of Philosophy are designed to lead students back to the classic works so they they may better understand what's at stake in these competing viewpoints. The result is a new kind of introduction-one that enables students to understand philosophy's history as a still-living debate, rather than a string of unearthed truths from the past.
