Summary

Philosophy made easy! TRAVERSING PHILOSOPHICAL BOUNDARIES walks you through the six philosophical concerns in language you can understand. Plus, it has study tools and review sections that let you make sure you're getting what you need to know. This multicultural philosophical reader offers essential readings from many cultural perspectives not typically included in introductory philosophy classes. Asian, African, African-American, Latin American, and Feminist traditions are broadly represented and fully integrated into the exploration of these fundamental matters.
