Philosophy asks questions, even when we think we already have all the answers. But some questions about the fundamental nature of reality, our place in the world, and what we should or should not do are perennial. They have not been definitively answered and perhaps never will be. They continue to puzzle and perplex us, regardless of how many other questions we’ve answered.
Each book in this series includes two professors presenting opposite answers to a single Big Question in opening statements, and then engaging with each other in a lively exchange of objections and replies. Pedagogical features include standard form arguments, summaries and annotated reading lists. Friendly, short, and accessible to students or anyone who has pondered over a Big Question, each volume showcases diverse and deep answers to the question, and the enduring significance of philosophical debate.
