Arthur, John, Shapiro, Amy, Throop, William M.


Everyone's life is fashioned in large measure from the three practices of morality, science, and religion. This fresh approach to philosophy focuses on these practices, each studied from the dual perspectives of reason and culture. Discussion and analysis of morality, science, and religion are infused with philosophical arguments and concepts. The book discusses each practice from three points of view: the nature of the practice (including its connections with larger issues of the purpose and meaning of human life), its ielttion to culture, and the role reason plays in the practice. Reason and Culture, First Edition, shows how traditional philosophical problems emerge naturally, out of our relationships with morality, science, and religion. Students will see that the philosophical issues raised in these readings are intrinsic elements in their daily lives. Key features of the book include: links traditional philosophical issues to the practices of morality, science, and religion uses an interdisciplinary perspective to demonstrate philosophy's breadth; uses the critical, rational edge of philosophical writing as a tool to understand interactions among cultural practices emphasizes the impact of science on culture integrates the readings into a coherent whole allows instructors great flexibility, enabling them to tailor the readings to their own needs within a clear, thematic course shows how philosophical reflection is a natural part of human experience; encourages students to think critically about their own livesArthur, John is the author of 'Reason and Culture Philosophical Issues in Morality, Science, and Religion', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130285669 and ISBN 0130285668.
