I just finished an Open Source reader (and thus free) that you might find useful for your Introductory Courses. It just got posted and already I’m receiving very kind reviews.

As well, If you happen to be using my Critical Thinking textbook (only $30.00 US from Broadview Press) feel free to send me a note if you’d like a copy of the power point lecture slides that I use with it.

Best Regards,


Dr. Jeff McLaughlin Ph.D., Chair:  Philosophy, History and Politics

Thompson Rivers University, 900 McGill Road, Kamloops BC, Canada

Dr. McLaughlin’s selection of texts for:

The Originals: Classic Readings in Western Philosophy

is part of the BC Faculty Pressbooks Sites 

and provides a rich selection of original texts.
