Introduction to Western Philosophy
Clearly Antony Flew was on a mission when he wrote his Introduction to Western Philosophy. It is very carefully crafted, providing an unparalleled introduction not only to Western philosophers and their ideas, but also to approaches to philosophical thought. Flew assumes that his readers are willing to try to think like philosophers, and he provides a great deal of guidance in terms of both basic information that one ought to know as well as those pitfalls that one should avoid.
