ROOTS OF WISDOM, Sixth Edition, invites students to explore universal and current philosophical issues through a rich tapestry of perspectives including the ideas and traditions of men and women from the West, Asia, Peoples of the Americas, and Africa. No other book offers such breadth of multicultural coverage coupled with a clear, concise, and approachable writing style. Mitchell uses striking color and black and white images to illustrate our diverse cultural inheritance, using fine art, cartoons, poetry, movies, and popular music to bring the issues of philosophy to life for the student. This new edition features four new color inserts to illustrate philosophical themes as well as new material on animal intelligence, brain science, Asian approaches to war, and from President Obama’s memoir on race and identity.
