AN INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY
PAUL J. GLENN
Publisher: To be had in Kindle E-Book:
An Introduction to Philosophy ought to live up to its name. It must tell the young collegian, and the presumably older non-collegian who takes it up with serious intent, numerous vital things. It must answer the questions naturally to be expected of the one who wishes to be introduced,—questions such as these: What is philosophy? How did it come into existence? What interesting things have happened to develop it or to hinder its development? What great names are identified with its effort? What have the bearers of these names done for philosophy? Is there a single true philosophy? Can there be a truly false philosophy? Can one know true from false? What, in outline, are the things philosophy speaks of?
Some such litany of inquiries, duly adapted, would be recited,—no less than inaudibly in his own mind and heart,—by any in most cases curious human being about to be introduced to a Personage. And philosophy is as interesting and as exciting as any Personage, even supposing he were spelled in capitals all over.
