This book describes the philosophies of some of the most important philosophers in history, especially since the time of Descartes; it also analyzes those viewpoints. However, instead of trying to persuade the reader to a certain viewpoint, it attempts to lay the facts out and show the strengths and weaknesses of each viewpoint. This book takes a middle approach to philosophy as opposed to the two extremes you find in most introductory books to philosophy.

The first extreme just merely describes what the philosophers wrote and then presents a portion of their writings for review. The second extreme takes a more analytical approach criticizing viewpoints which differ from its own and never admitting, much less addressing, challenges or weaknesses that this viewpoint may have of its own. Next, this book focuses on some of the major world religions.

The standard approach to introductory books to philosophy is to concentrate on the claim that God exists and also challenges to that claim, and leave it at that. The god of philosophers just simply doesn't exist. He will either be the God of Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, etc. So why spend an inordinate amount of time on a god who does not exist at the expense of the study of the God who just might exist?

This book also focuses on narrative, the story element in life as it addresses these major issues. There is a trend in philosophy today to focus on the logical element in philosophy. This is a much-needed corrective to the unbridled intuitive approach.

To help understand the way philosophy undergirds so many of the other disciplines, this book will take an interdisciplinary approach to philosophy.
