About this item

Philosophers don't just make claims, they give arguments.

Does the existence of evil call into doubt the existence of God? Show me the argument.

Will living a just life lead to happiness? Show me the argument.

Philosophy starts with questions, but attempts at answers are just as important, and these answers require reasoned argument. Cutting through notoriously dense and verbose philosophical prose, the authors set 100 famous and influential arguments in context, including key quotations, to explain the original style and approach. Each argument is laid bare in its essential form, with premises and conclusions plainly identified and the form of argument specified.

Designed to offer a quick and compact reference to everything from Aquinas' Five Ways to prove the existence of God to the metaphysical possibilities of zombie minds, Just the Arguments is an invaluable one–stop argument shop. Michael Bruce currently researches in the history of philosophy. He has taught philosophy and mathematics courses at the University of Washington’s Robinson Center for Young Scholars. Steven Barbone is Associate Professor of Philosophy at San Diego State University.
