 About the Book 

Focusing on universal, current issues of concern to all people, ROOTS OF WISDOM leads students to the understanding that philosophical inquiry can provide. The chapters are framed by issues, but move chronologically using the canon of traditional philosophy as the thread. Women philosophers and non-western philosophies are integrated throughout as they relate to the canon. Mitchell uses popular culture to illustrate timeless philosophical problems. Her examples of cartoons, poetry, movies, and references to popular music bring the issues of philosophy to life for the student.
