What is truth? What is goodness? What is justice? How can I be sure?  These are perhaps among the first questions humanity has systematically sought answers to and which still, today, drive most arguments and divide people. These questions, their answers, their modes and scope of evaluation remain problematic, ever-shifting and eluding definition as our horizons and conceptions of reality expand. A beautiful, creative work— our conceptions of truth have evolved with our capacity to define them and our definition of what it means to be human. This textbook, intended to be a primer course in Humanities, and its survey of Philosophy, Logic and Critical Thinking, takes the Student through the wondrous voyage of the development of thought through the history of the Human Being—and our progress in tackling the first and still, most problematic of questions: What does it mean to be human? 


Replete with exercises and suggestive material for the classroom, this volumes serves as the standard Humanities textbook and reference guide for today’s student.
