This addition to The Modern Scholar series features Rutgers Professor Colin McGinn covering the basics of philosophical inquiry. What distinguishes the audio from Philosophy 101 is the idea that, from time to time, everyone ponders the great imponderables--the nature of truth, beauty, morality, God, and the meaning of life. Learning the most productive methodology for such investigation, as well as some of its fundamentals, can materially guide the individual's spiritual journey. McGuinn, working extemporaneously from notes, has a soft, sandy voice and speaks in clipped British tones. He is a little dry and repetitive, though never pedantic or condescending. The accompanying printed course guide nicely supplements the lectures. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
