I'm looking for an introduction to philosophy text that meets the following criteria:
1. It's arranged topically, not historically.
2. It nevertheless deals with these topics by going over how various thinkers throughout history have addressed them -- although not exhaustively of course.
3. It's actually introductory, for people who haven't taken philosophy before.
4. It's inexpensive.
I had used Does the Center Hold? but it's chapter on metaphysics was exclusively on philosophy of mind (not really dealing with space and time, causality, etc.), and the chapter on philosophy of religion was just terrible. Anyone have any ideas?
