SUMMARY

The interdisciplinary and intercultural anthology approaches fundamental philosophical questions with a focus on the self--its discovery, limitations, possibilities, and contexts. Numerous readings, ranging from the traditional to the innovative, reinforce and challenge each other as they address thoughts and beliefs about human nature, the natural world, society, class structures, race and gender, human sexuality, relationships with others, and religion. These "voices" encourage students to apply different perspectives to their own lives in order to gain a better understanding of themselves and their world. Philosophies for Living,First Edition, features: Emphasis on the self and self-identity. Nine distinct thematic sections, with introductions for each. Multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural approach which discusses the "self" across academic disciplines as well as between cultures. A wide variety of voices, including women and men; Africans; Asians; Europeans; Native Americans; Hispanic Americans; religious and secular traditions and philosophies from around the globe. Articulations of philosophical beliefs from beyond the western tradition. Integration of the traditional canon of academic philosophy with the wisdom of other disciplines and traditions. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter that encourage students to reflect on characteristics and activities that may be typical of a philosophical life. A wealth of in-class activities and short essay assignments that assist in strengthening or deepening students' philosophical resolve.Timko, Robert M. is the author of 'Philosophies for Living', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130883162 and ISBN 0130883166.
