About this item

Mitchell's ROOTS OF WISDOM: A TAPESTRY OF PHILOSOPHICAL TRADITIONS, Eighth Edition, invites students to explore universal and current philosophical issues through a rich tapestry of worldviews that include the ideas and traditions of men and women from the West, Asia, the Americas and Africa. These "voices" interact within every chapter. Unrivaled breadth of multicultural coverage is coupled with a clear and concise writing style. Striking images from fine art, cartoons, poetry, movies, current events and popular music illustrate our diverse cultural inheritance and bring the issues of philosophy to life for students. New material considers the Confucian Socially Molded Self, decisions about who is and who is not a citizen in a republic, how to foster personhood in a planned city and the question of whether other animals do or should enjoy personhood. MindTap Philosophy is also available.
