Philosophical Traditions : A Text With Readings , by Louis P. Pojman

(1997, paperback, 465 pages)

Note: This book is relatively expensive. I present it here in response to the good reviews and readers comments, and its upward sales trend, but it isn't my recommendation for a reader who expects a paperback book to be inexpensive. The last time I checked, it was $60.95 -- M.L.
