ROOTS OF WISDOM, Sixth Edition, helps you understand the universal and current philosophical issues that concern all of us, such as, who we are, how we know, and how we should live. No other book offers such breadth of multicultural coverage coupled with a clear, concise, and approachable writing style. Women philosophers and non-Western philosophies are integrated throughout the text, which places the worldviews of many cultures in conversation with one another, addressing specific philosophical topics. Mitchell uses striking color and black and white images to illustrate our diverse cultural inheritance, using fine art, cartoons, poetry, movies, and popular music to bring the issues of philosophy to life for the student. This new edition features four new color inserts to illustrate philosophical themes as well as new material on animal intelligence, brain science, Asian approaches to war, and from President Obama's memoir on race and identity.
