Accessible, flexible, and affordable, The World of Philosophy: An Introductory Reader presents philosophy in all its diverse array of thought and practice, offering standard Western historical and analytic materials alongside writings from Chinese, Indian, Native-American, African American, continental, and other sources. Approximately 25% of the contemporary readings are by women, including leading feminist theorists. Many articles have been edited to sharpen their focus and make them understandable to students with little or no background in philosophy. The readings are enhanced by introductions, study questions, and a glossary at the end of the book. A new online Ancillary Resource Center and a Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/cahn offer additional resources for instructors and students. Featuring not only essential readings from the Western canon but also selections on compelling topics like Hindu and Buddhist conceptions of the self, Confucian and Buddhist morality, world hunger, animal rights, sexism, and racism, The World of Philosophy offers students a distinctive blend of traditional and non-traditional perspectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I heartily recommend The World of Philosophy. The inclusion of many non-Western perspectives, and also a good number of critical perspectives from feminism, race theory, and post-colonial theory (along with many canonical sources) makes the book an invaluable resource for introducing students to a very diverse range of philosophical problems and issues. * Mason Cash, University of Central Florida *
The World of Philosophy combines the best of canonical philosophy with non-Western thinking and female philosophers. It's a rare breed among introductory texts. * Clint Tibbs, Delta State University *
I don't think that I have seen another textbook that covers such a wide range of the topics that I would want to address in an introductory philosophy course. * Jason Thibodeau, Georgia Perimeter College *
The World of Philosophy is both accessible and representative of a range of philosophical views and thinkers. * Alexandra Perry, Marietta College *
