What Reviewers Are Saying
"A. P. Martinich understands that clear thought and clear writing go hand in hand. His latest revision of Philosophical Writing makes a good book even better. It should be a companion to virtually every philosophy course." John Corvino, Wayne State University "Every teacher of philosophy struggles to explain to students how to write a coherent, well-argued philosophical essay. Martinich solves this problem, explaining fully the steps needed for a successful paper. I strongly recommend it." Avrum Stroll, University of California, San Diego "Itself a model of lucidity, Philosophical Writing shows how to infuse clear thinking into prose. The new tips and sample essays make this edition an indispensable resource for both students and teachers." Jo Ann Carson, Texas State University "Martinich's guide to philosophical writing is a gem. Most exciting, I think, is the guidance about how to prepare an essay through a 'successive elaboration' of a first account of the paper's argument. No teacher of undergraduates in philosophy should be without it." Michael Morgan, Indiana University
