Philosophy 2: Further Through the Subject is a lively and authoritative guide through important areas of philosophy that are typically studied in the later parts of an undergraduate course. It is a companion to the highly successful Philosophy: A Guide Through the Subject; together the two volumes provide a complete accompaniment to the study of philosophy, orientating and assisting the reader at every stage.Thirteen extended essays have been specially commissioned, each introducing a major area and giving an accessible, sophisticated, and up to date account of the main debates. The authors include leading figures in contemporary philosophy. The first seven essays cover the philosophies of language, psychology, religion, and the natural and social sciences. The second part of the book completes the guide through the history of philosophy which was started in the first volume, and covers such famous thinkers as Aquinas, Kant, Hegel, Russell, and Wittgenstein. Full annotated bibliographies are provided to serve as guides for further reading.This book is intended to be as valuable at the end of a course of study as at the beginning: the essays are not just informative but stimulating and engaging. Their aim is to draw the reader deep into the practice of philosophy today.
