Description

Product Description

Does the Center Hold? is an entertaining, topically-organized introductory program with more than 500 original illustrations. The ideas and issues typically covered in introductory philosophy courses are presented here in a remarkably accessible and enjoyable manner. Donald Palmer demonstrates that serious philosophical inquiry may be perplexing, but is ultimately liberating, and students will come away from the book with a comprehensive, and often delighted, understanding of philosophy. The Connect course for this offering includes SmartBook, an adaptive reading and study experience which guides students to master, recall, and apply key concepts while providing automatically-graded assessments.

McGraw-Hill Connect® is a subscription-based learning service accessible online through your personal computer or tablet. Choose this option if your instructor will require Connect to be used in the course. Your subscription to Connect includes the following:

• SmartBook® - an adaptive digital version of the course textbook that personalizes your reading experience based on how well you are learning the content.
• Access to your instructor’s homework assignments, quizzes, syllabus, notes, reminders, and other important files for the course.
• Progress dashboards that quickly show how you are performing on your assignments and tips for improvement.
• The option to purchase (for a small fee) a print version of the book. This binder-ready, loose-leaf version includes free shipping.

Way too pricey for the size!
Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2021
This product is smaller than the dimensions state. It''s roughly 6x9" and only has two holes for putting it in a binder, which are uneven at that. Paying $83 for this... I''m super disappointed. If my class didn''t begin in a week I would be returning it.

The seventh edition is the best yet. But I would never use it in my philosophy classes because the font is so small and so faint that sustained reading causes eye strain. The notes at the end of each chapter are even smaller and the Index practically requires a magnifying glass. What was McGraw Hill thinking? Why did they sabatoge such a fine textbook?
