This Open Textbook will be targeted at first year (college or university) students, taking introductory survey courses in philosophy, and will touch on the foundational ideas in philosophical inquiry. The book will cover core concepts in Western philosophy, as well as other traditions.
This series of textbooks looks to provide students with an introduction to the canon of Philosophy, giving them the basic framework needed to pursue higher-level courses. The books will be available for course adoptions in Philosophy survey courses around the world, with an expectation that future iterations or companion works can build on this starting point. The table of contents has been drafted, and we are currently looking for authors or section editors on this project.
We are currently looking for:
- Authors for chapters in the following parts:
- Feedback on the revised Aesthetics outline (open until Feb. 13, 2019)

As the project progresses, we will also need collaborators to help with:
- Peer review
- Accessibility checks
- Formatting in Pressbooks
- Promoting course adoptions
