Distilled from Donald Palmer's more than thirty years to teaching experience, this text exemplifies his very successful approach to teaching introductory philosophy. Through the use of humor and about 400 drawings, charts, and diagrams, serious philosophical topics come alive for the reader without compromising the importance of the subject matter. In the author's words, "This book takes philosophy seriously, but not gravely."
