Editorial Reviews

George Stuart Fullerton, a psychologist and philosopher who lived and worked around the turn of the 20th century, attempts to give as clear and simple a treatment of philosophy as possible. He sets out to define the word itself, how it differs from common and scientific thinking, the general problems it tackles, the various approaches that have risen out of those problems, its relations to other sciences, and its values and practical uses. The book is certainly academic but plain spoken and even-keeled. Mark Moseley’s delivery of the text enforces this sense of structure, his clear and even speech maintaining a sense of clarity in this audio tutorial on a topic that can so often feel overly complex and esoteric.

Narrator a bit flat

The book was alright, I guess you could also say that it was quite annoying when some of the sentence structures and words were visibly trying to sound posh and more complicated than needed, especially for an introductory book. I have read other philosophy books and they don't always do this.

The narrator was kind of flat and read almost like a machine (except without the hitches of wrong pronunciation that machines have).

All in all it wasn't a "bad" job, just not spectacular either.
