Revel Philosophy

Preview Features

Designed for how you want to teach — and how your students want to learn

Revel is an interactive learning environment that engages students and helps them prepare for your class. Reimagining their content, our authors integrate media and assessment throughout the narrative so students can read, explore, and practice, all at the same time. Thanks to this dynamic reading experience, students come to class prepared to discuss, apply, and learn about philosophy — from you and from each other.

Engaging students in reflective thinking about practical, timely topics is the best way to cultivate positive critical thinking habits of mind. Revel does just that by integrating real-world examples, writing tasks, and exercises throughout the text. Instead of static representations of concepts (like tables and argument maps), Revel offers interactive visualizations that enable students to better refine their critical thinking skills. By providing opportunities to read about and apply concepts in tandem, Revel engages students deeply, which leads to a better understanding of course material.
