"This is undoubtedly one of the best philosophy textbooks available. Among its strengths are its breadth of coverage, the seamless integration of the material along historical and topical lines, the introductions and explanations that accompany the extracts from each author, and the contrastive approach."--Christian Coseru, College of Charleston
"Robert Solomon had one of the greatest philosophical styles in contemporary philosophy, and the joy of Introducing Philosophy is largely to be found in his lucid, fun, and gently provocative prose."--Jonathan Scott Lee, Colorado College

The textbook is not dry at all, and the context it tries to provide for the included texts are very helpful to understanding the meaning and purpose behind the philosopher's ideas. If you have to purchase this textbook for a philosophy class, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I have had time to read through it and let me say the book is great. If you just breaking the water on philosophy then this is book for you. It has really helped me get a better understanding of what I have to come in my philosophy class. I feel like I now have the tools needs to tackle this class head on. Thank you Solomon for this excellent read.
