“If the first book of the series is any indication of the rest, it will be a good series indeed. Everything about This is Philosophy, from the series description to the marketing on the website, screams “this is hip, down to earth, user-friendly, and cheeky; this is not your grandfather’s introduction to philosophy.” ”.- Matthew Van Cleave
Teaching Philosophy 36:4, December 2013
On this site you will find resources for the This Is Philosophy series from Wiley-Blackwell (Steven D. Hales, series editor). Books in the series range across philosophy, including an introduction to the field as a whole–This Is Philosophy: An Introduction, by Steven D. Hales–as well as volumes on Philosophy of Mind (Pete Mandik), Ethics (Jussi Suikkanen, NEW!), Epistemology (Clayton Littlejohn, forthcoming), Metaphysics (Kris McDaniel, forthcoming), Philosophy of Religion (Neil Manson, forthcoming), Modern Philosophy (Kurt Smith, forthcoming), Political Philosophy (Alex Tuckness and Clark Wolf, forthcoming) and more to come. Resources include lecture slides, flashcards and comprehension self-assessment exercises, glossaries, instructor test banks, and more.
This innovative series integrates the content of each volume with digital resources found on this site and on external websites. Each book is published in both print and digital formats. Instructors don’t need to worry about whether students are using print or digital editions, since every paragraph is numbered, making references to particular passages easy, even when students are using reflowable digital editions that alter or remove page numbers. This site is mobile optimized, making it easy for readers to make use of the resources on smartphones and tablets as well as on computers.
The resources on this site will expand as we publish more books in the series, and as the books are developed over time. We welcome your feedback and suggestions, and invite you begin exploring the series.
