CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Featuring Douglas J. Soccio's lucid and conversational prose and a
well-chosen, reader-friendly array of succinct excerpts from canonical primary
sources, ARCHETYPES OF WISDOM brings philosophy to life for its readers through
the examination of many paradigmatic philosophies and philosophers. Very much a
student-focused book that speaks out of Soccio's non-condescending desire to
speak to students where they "are" and not where they "should be," ARCHETYPES
OF WISDOM includes numerous pedagogical illustrations and features
(Philosophical Queries, a Marginal Glossary, Chapter Summaries, End-of-Chapter
Questions for Reflection, to name a few) to make this often-times daunting
subject the approachable and engaging subject it ought to be. The Sixth Edition
represents a careful revision, with all changes made by Soccio to enhance and
refresh the book's reader-praised search-for-wisdom motif. In particular, this
edition features new coverage of Lao-Tzu; expanded, chapter-length treatment of
Kierkegaard; and an engaging introduction to the complex landscape of
philosophy in the twentieth century focusing on the two archetypal thinkers of
this time period: Wittgenstein and Heidegger. Soccio's lauded prose is also
enhanced in this Sixth Edition by the text's new full-color design. The text is
supported by an unmatched array of teaching and learning resources that include
CengageNOW-a powerful online tutorial and course management system, and dynamic
easy-to-use lecture and class preparation tools exclusive to Wadsworth, a part
of Cengage Learning.
