    Hey guys.

    Can I get an expert recommendation on a good book to introduce me to Philosophy. A book that explains the structure, terminology, principals, etc. of it.

    Thanks guys!

    It's far from an expert recommendation but i liked An Introduction to Philosophical Analysis by John Hospers.

    Not great for terminology, people in philosophy, or depth but good for basic concepts.

    Use it in conjunction with http://plato.stanford.edu/ which will provide these plus more modern ideas.
