About the Author
The author of this textbook deserves little credit in comparison with the original authors from whom he excerpted this material (see the attributions sections for the specifics) and the extraordinary librarian who undertook the mechanics of coordinating the process. The author will accept credit for being an enthusiastic educator who loves teaching philosophy and guiding students to being more philosophical. He is intensely sympathetic to the vision of Open Education, so that expense will be less of an obstacle to participation in formal education.
Yoni Porat has been teaching for over twenty years, ten of those focusing on Philosophy.
