Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Edited by Michael Bruce and Steven Barbone

JUST THE ARGUMENTS

"An invaluable tool for students – or anyone interested in philosophy – Just the Arguments distills the most important arguments from the Western philosophical tradition into concise and lucid prose. The editors should be commended for providing such an action-packed resource; it's highly recommended!"
Fritz Allhoff, Western Michigan University

Philosophers don't just make claims, they give arguments. Does the existence of evil call into doubt the existence of God? Show me the argument. Will living a just life lead to happiness? Show me the argument. Philosophy starts with questions, but attempts at answers are just as important, and these answers require reasoned argument.

Cutting through notoriously dense and verbose philosophical prose, the authors set 100 famous and influential arguments in context, including key quotations, to explain the original style and approach. Each argument is laid bare in its essential form, with premises and conclusions plainly identified and the form of argument specified.

Designed to offer a quick and compact reference to everything from Aquinas' "Five Ways" to prove the existence of God to the metaphysical possibilities of zombie minds, Just the Arguments is an invaluable one-stop argument shop.

Review
