The Other presents a very intricate world with simplicity and straightforwardness. It shows not only the history of ideas in the West, but also how these ideas have developed throughout the centuries.

Dr. Librado Garza, author of Influences of the Success of Mexican-American Public Universities Students


The Other: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy is a historical survey of ideas in the western hemisphere. The book begins in ancient Greece in the early part of the sixth century B.C.E., going through the Golden Age of Greek Philosophy, Medieval Philosophy and its religious tendencies, the Modern Period with its rationalism and empiricism, and the Contemporary Period, which ends in the 20 th century with the existentialism of Sartre and Camus. The book takes a case study approach, disseminating dense ideas for the beginner student, and showing how thoughts have become viewpoints, values and beliefs, and specially, how the contemporary mind has been shaped by the inescapable influence of the past. This is an ideal text book for High School and beginning colleges’ classes in philosophy.
