Philosophy in Practice is a completely new kind of introductory philosophy textbook, focusing on philosophy as an activity, rather than as a doctrine. At its heart is a stimulating sequence of exercises, activities and examples which lead the student directly into philosophical thinking and arguing.
The book is divided into three parts, concentrating on issues of reason, experience, and reality. Each is covered in a way that makes clear both the key connections between metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, and the main trends in the history of philosophy. It provides the ideal general introduction to philosophy.

"The engaging enthusiasm of the author, and his delight in problems, puzzles and arguments, crackles from page to page." Times Literary Supplement
"This book is doubly unique. It engages the students directly in the activity of philosophizing, leading them into the heart of important problems through stimulating exercises. And, it provides students with a unified account of a variety of philosophical issues." Zev Trachtenberg, University of Oklahoma
