Revealing® Philosophy includes twelve modules (corresponding to textbook chapters):
- Exploring Philosophy
- Logical Arguments
- Metaphysics: What Is Reality?
- Metaphysics: Who Am I?
- Metaphysics: Is There a God?
- Foundations of Epistemology
- Approaches to Epistemology
- Social Epistemology
- Personal Ethics: Choices
- Personal Ethics: Character
- Social & Applied Ethics
The modules explore the traditional categories of logic, metaphysics, epistemology, and aesthetics. However, the text is anything but traditional. The self-paced and highly responsive format of Revealing® Philosophy is infused with material that provides a more comprehensive approach to philosophy in the Western tradition than most contemporary textbooks, including feminist, indigenous, American, and non-Western philosophies. Concrete examples drawn from history, contemporary culture, or literature capture the imagination of the reader prior to exploring a philosophical topic. Students who engage this introductory text will receive a solid grounding in the Western philosophic tradition. They will be introduced to a diverse set of philosophies that provide the critical thinking skills necessary in a cosmopolitan and multicultural society. The text does not shy away from challenging and controversial ethical, epistemological, or metaphysical topics.
