Doing Philosophy: An Introduction Through Thought Experiments
Published: January 23, 2019
Doing philosophy inspires active learning and helps students become more accomplished critical thinkers by encouraging them to reflect on philosophical theories and the thought experiments used to test them. The book traces the historical development of philosophical thinking on a number of central problems and shows how the solutions offered to these problems inform current thinking on many social, political, and religious issues. By introducing students to philosophical theorizing and encouraging them to formulate their own views, Doing Philosophy fosters creative as well as critical thinking and generates an appreciation for the importance of philosophical inquiry.
