Philosophy: An Introduction Through Original Fiction, Discussion, and Readings

A man is imprisoned in a cell with a library. He discovers that no matter which book he turns to, each page unerringly describes what he has just thought and done. To demonstrate his freedom, he attempts to foil the predictions. Through twelve such intriguing and original short stories and plays, this innovative text brings to life the conceptual and substantive issues covered in introductory philosophy courses: determinism and freedom, God and suffering, morality, the nature of mind, appearance and reality, logic, and more. In a consistent five-part format that permits the instructor to choose the order of topics, each section presents a story illustrating the philosophical issues followed by pertinent questions, a discussion, classical and contemporary readings, and study questions.
