Summary
This book is an introduction to philosophy which, as is explained more fully in Chapter 1, synthesizes two methods: that of beginning with readings from the classics; and that of the ordinary textbook, written as such. One fundamental aim has been to ensure continuous readability; while at the same time providing both an Index of Notions and an Index of Names, intended to facilitate a different sort of reading for later revision and reinforcement. It is in accordance with this fundamental aim that the readings from the classics are worked into a single continuous book, and not segregated into a separate supplementary part
