    Philosophers don't just make claims, they give arguments. Does the existence of evil call into doubt the existence of God? Show me the argument. Will living a just life lead to happiness? Show me the argument. Philosophy starts with questions, but attempts at answers are just as important, and these answers require reasoned argument. Cutting through notoriously dense and verbose philosophical prose, the authors set 100 famous and influential arguments in context, including key quotations

    I think this is a fantastic book for getting the basic philosophical ideas and arguments out there and on the table for discussion. I wish I had this book when I was in college. The problem with the Audible edition is that you really need to see the arguments on paper and read them a couple of times. There is just to much philosophy there for a causal listening. I bought the Kindle version too and I am very happy with that.
