Review #1401 Philosophy by Samuel Enoch Stumpf
Book Review #12
Philosophy: History and Problems by Samuel Enoch Stumpf and James Fieser
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This book posed interesting problems and age-old debates. I appreciated the concepts it featured because they led to interesting class discussions. I read this book for a senior philosophy class and I thought it did a good job of providing an overview of philosophical concepts. I liked many of the authors in the book - though there were a few that no matter how much time I took reading their sections - I still wasn't sure I was grasping what they were saying. While it was a good college textbook, it's not something I'd recommend for pleasure reading.
