Using a series of questions on a variety of topics, this extended collection of readings for undergraduates, with contributors ranging from those of Kant to Plato, Descartes, Berkeley, Chuang-Tzu, Sartre, the Koran, the Bible and Joseph Campbell, the editors cover the basics including religion and the meaning of life, the interactions of science, mind and nature, thinking and knowing, personhood, living a good life, and justice and responsibility. Questions include "Why shouldn't I be selfish?" "Am I free to choose what I do?" "Does religion give my life meaning" and "What is the meaning of death?" Each question includes a summary and commentary and a series of short readings. The text for this edition has been updated to include material on terrorism, violence, cloning, and personal identity.
