Praise for the first edition:
“I would recommend First Philosophy to anyone teaching an introductory philosophy course.” ― Paul Churchland, University of California, San Diego.
“This is an extremely well-done philosophy text. … [It] should become a standard in introductory philosophy classes.” ― Patricia Blanchette, University of Notre Dame.
“First Philosophy has a good selection of articles for my purposes, and the accompanying introductory background material is absolutely brilliant.” ― Jillian Scott McIntosh, Simon Fraser University.
“The introductions are fabulous; students find them very helpful. Overall, First Philosophy is an excellent anthology for first-year students; the text has made my job significantly easier.” ― Jennifer M. Phillips, Indiana University, Bloomington.
“Bailey’s extensive and informative introductions are excellent and are a great help to both students and instructors. Bailey’s choice of readings along with his wonderful introductions make First Philosophy the best introductory philosophy text I have used.” ― Marc Ereshefsky, University of Calgary.
“The main difference between other anthologies and First Philosophy is Bailey’s supplementary material, which is excellent. The explicative material is likewise excellent: clear, highly relevant, useful, easily understood. The wonderful supplementary material makes this a very good text indeed.” ― Jeff Foss, University of Victoria.
“First Philosophy combines a great selection of texts with thoughtful, accessible introductory material. It’s a wonderful, perfectly pitched introduction to the discipline for lower division students. It is always my first choice when I’m teaching ‘Intro.’” ― Shannon Dea, University of Waterloo.
