An accessible Christian survey of the history of philosophy for college students This introductory textbook on philosophy offers a chronological approach to philosophical issues from a Christian perspective. It is written in clear language and presupposes no previous study of philosophy. The focus is primarily on Western philosophy, but it touches on Eastern and nonEuropean (such as African) thought where relevant. Topics covered include: Beginnings (Jewish and preChristian thought to about 300 A.D.), Christianity, Medievalism, the Rise of Humanism, Decline and Despair, and the Descent into Relativism. The book concludes with suggestions of where the journey goes from here.
