Engaging for all kinds of readers, VOICES OF WISDOM has become the standard for multicultural introductions to philosophy. This collection of culturally diverse readings introduces readers to basic philosophical questions in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics. The classic writings of Buddha, Plato, the Dalai Lama and others are used to explore important issues such as terrorism, civil disobedience, homosexuality, human rights, animal rights, language, and truth and power. VOICES OF WISDOM introduces readers to the traditional terrain of philosophy as developed in the European tradition in a manner that embraces significant philosophical insights borne out of different cultural legacies.
