MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the first edition:

"I would recommend First Philosophy to anyone teaching an introductory philosophy course." - Paul Churchland, University of California, San Diego

"This is an extremely well-done philosophy text. ... [It] should become a standard in introductory philosophy classes." - Patricia Blanchette, University of Notre Dame

"First Philosophy has a good selection of articles for my purposes, and the accompanying introductory background material is absolutely brilliant." - Jillian Scott McIntosh, Simon Fraser University

"The introductions are fabulous; students find them very helpful. Overall, First Philosophy is an excellent anthology for first-year students; the text has made my job significantly easier." - Jennifer M. Phillips, Indiana University, Bloomington

"Bailey's extensive and informative introductions are excellent and are a great help to both students and instructors. Bailey's choice of readings along with his wonderful introductions make First Philosophy the best introductory philosophy text I have used." - Marc Ereshefsky, University of Calgary

"The main difference between other anthologies and First Philosophy is Bailey's supplementary material, which is excellent. The explicative material is likewise excellent: clear, highly relevant, useful, easily understood. The wonderful supplementary material makes this a very good text indeed." - Jeff Foss, University of Victoria

"First Philosophy combines a great selection of texts with thoughtful, accessible introductory material. It's a wonderful, perfectly pitched introduction to the discipline for lower division students. It is always my first choice when I'm teaching 'Intro.'" - Shannon Dea, University of Waterloo
