This introduction aims to bring philosophy to life by presenting it as a positive living enterprise that has its roots in the practical issue of humans and their philosophical relation to the world. This approach is intended to encourage the reader to gain a sense of the excitement and importance of the subject, and move away from the conception of philosophy as merely an attempt to clarify clever problems. Philosophical issues are presented, not as isolated disparate puzzles, but as part of a unified, cohesive and common problematic. "Philosophy" introduces and discusses the "big questions" of philosophy - its history, the existence of God, the natural world, human existence, knowledge and its limits, morality, society, and the human condition. Each topic considered is shown to devolve from certain central themes and human concerns encouraging the reader to progress coherently through the book. Eastern and Western, continental and analytic philosophical traditions are treated on an equal footing, reflecting a contemporary approach to the subject.
