↠´ Read ☆ Philosophy for Graduate Students by Alex Broadbent ☆ When Graduate Students Start Their Studies, They Usually Have Sound Knowledge Of Some Areas Of Philosophy, But The Overall Map Of Their Knowledge Is Often Patchy And Disjointed There Are A Number Of Topics That Any Contemporary Philosopher Working In Any Part Of The Analytic Tradition And In Many Parts Of Other Traditions Too Needs To Grasp, And To Grasp As A Coherent Whole Rather Than A Rag Bag Of Interesting But Isolated Discussions This Book Answers This Need, By Providing A Overview Of Core Topics In Metaphysics And Epistemology That Is At Once Accessible And Nuanced Ten Core Topics Are Explained, And Their Relation To Each Other Is Clearly Set Out The Book Emphasizes The Utility Of The Concepts And Distinctions It Covers For Philosophy As A Whole, Not Just For Specialist Discussions In Metaphysics Or Epistemology The Text Is Highly Readable And May Be Used As The Basis Of A Course On These Topics Recommendations For Reading Are Included At The End Of Each Chapter, Divided Into Essential And Further Readings The Text Is Also Suitable For People Approaching Philosophy From Other Disciplines, As An Accessible Primer To The Central Topics, Concepts And Distinctions That Are Needed To Engage Meaningfully In Contemporary Philosophical Debate Either this is a really good overview of the main topics that are needed to do well in an analytically focused graduate program, which means that the bar is set extremely low for what is expected of incoming grad students, or this actually isn t a very good overview which means that students will be woefully underprepared after reading this Since I m not quite in grad school yet, I can t say so either way, though I ll side with the former possibility, despite how depressing it is I don t mean to sound like a jerk, but my specialty is with continental philosophy and I was still aware of 90% of the topics I m here, so if you re not.
demand better of yourself.
Broadbent s book is very well written, though, and is very well
