First Philosophy brings together fifty-four classic and contemporary readings on seven central philosophical topics. Mindful of the intrinsic difficulty of the material, the editors provide comprehensive introductions both to each topic and to each individual selection.

A brief introduction to arguments is included, as are appendices on terminology and philosophical puzzles and paradoxes.
