  1. An Introduction to Hegel's Logic

    Justus Hartnack
    Translated from the Danish by Lars Aagaard-Mogenson
    Edited by Kenneth R. Westphal

    An Introduction to Hegel's Logic

    “One of the best short introductions to Hegel’s logic I know. It gives a comprehensive survey that is easy to understand.”
         —Michael Wolff, Universitat Bielefeld

  2. Before and after Hegel

    Tom Rockmore

    Before and after Hegel

    “A good elementary introduction to the study of Hegel and his influence. . . . It places Hegel’s work in the intellectual context of his time very well.”
         —H. S. Harris, Glendon College, York University

  3. Between Kant and Hegel

    Translated and Edited, with Introductory Essays, by George di Giovanni & H. S. Harris

    Between Kant and Hegel

    This volume fills a lamentable gap in the philosophical literature by providing a collection of writings from the pivotal generation of thinkers between Kant and Hegel. It includes some of Hegel’s earliest critical writings—which reveal much about his thinking before the first mature exposition of his position in 1807—as well as Schelling’s justification of the new philosophy of nature against skeptical and religious attack. This edition contains George di Giovanni’s extensive corrections, new preface, and thoroughly updated bibliography.

  4. Hegel's Epistemology

    Kenneth R. Westphal

    Hegel's Epistemology

    "A reader-friendly, yet philosophically sharp and textually reliable introduction to one of the classics of western philosophy. Westphal shows why the dramatic, quasi-historical, structure of Hegel’s work is not accidental to it, but is rather required by the reflective, self-critical, nature of judgement that Hegel assumes from the beginning. The book will be of interest to readers who approach Hegel with analytical as well as phenomenological preconceptions, and of use (but for different reasons) to undergraduates and graduate students alike."
         —George di Giovanni, McGill University

  5. Hegel's Ladder

    H. S. Harris

    Hegel's Ladder

     “[A] magnificent contribution to scholarship on the Phenomenology. What sets this book apart from the rest is Harris’s deep commitment to thinking Hegel in context, even when Hegel’s position runs counter to Harris’s own cultural and philosophical position. Thus Harris self-effacingly clears away the encrustations of ideology that distorted or undermined Hegel’s influence in the nineteenth century, and the contemporary biases that lead to piecemeal commentaries and salvagings of Hegel in the present day, and opens a window through which Hegel’s thought can appear with perhaps less distortion than at any previous time. This commentary on the Phenomenology is a landmark that will date Hegel scholarship by whether it appeared before or after Harris.”
        —Robert R. Williams, The Review of Metaphysics

  6. Hegel:  Phenomenology and System

    H. S. Harris

    Hegel: Phenomenology and System

    “This is an incredibly rich and provocative book for such a slim volume, and it will no doubt become a standard accompaniment to many classes on the Phenomenology, a kind of short, lucid skeleton key to the whole book.”
         —Terry Pinkard, Georgetown University

  7. PNG

    Robert Solomon

    Introducing The German Idealists

    Mock interviews with Kant, Hegel, Fichte, Schelling, Reinhold, Jacobi, Schlegel, and a letter from Schopenhauer.

  8. Introduction to Positive Philosophy

    Auguste Comte
    Edited, with introduction and revised translation,
    by Frederick Ferré

    Introduction to Positive Philosophy

    Includes an introduction, selected bibliography, works by Comte in English translation, and works about Comte in English - I. The Nature and Importance of the Positive Philosophy, II. The Classification of the Positive Sciences.

  9. Introduction to the Philosophy of History

    G. W. F. Hegel
    Translated by Leo Rauch

    Introduction to the Philosophy of History

    "An elegant and intelligent translation. The text provides a perfect solution to the problem of how to introduce students to Hegel in a survey course in the history of Western philosophy.  
         —Graham Parkes, University of Hawaii

  10. Introductions To The  Wissenschaftslehre And Other Writings (1797-1800)

    Johann Gottlieb Fichte
    Translated and Edited by Daniel Breazeale

    Introductions To The Wissenschaftslehre And Other Writings (1797-1800)

    “Daniel Breazeale is unquestionably the most erudite Fichte scholar now writing in English.”
         —Philosophical Review

    Karl Marx
    Edited by Lawrence H. Simon

    Marx: Selected Writings

    Featuring the most important and enduring works from Marx's enormous corpus, this collection ranges from the Hegelian idealism of his youth to the mature socialism of his later works. Organized both topically and in rough chronological order, the selections (many of them in the translations of Loyd D. Easton and Kurt H. Guddat) include writings on historical materialism, excerpts from Capital, and political works.

  12. On Art, Religion, and the History of Philosophy

    G. W. F. Hegel
    Edited by J. Glenn Gray, Introduction by Tom Rockmore

    On Art, Religion, and the History of Philosophy

    The famous introductory lectures collected in this volume represent the distillation of Hegel’s mature views on the three most important activities of spirit, and have the further advantage, shared by his lectures in general, of being more comprehensible than those works of his published during his lifetime. A new Introduction, Select Bibliography, Analytical Table of Contents, and the restoration in the section headings of the outline of Hegel’s lectures make this new edition particularly useful and welcome.

  13. On Liberty

    John Stuart Mill
    Edited by Elizabeth Rapaport

    On Liberty

    Contents include a selected bibliography and an editor's Introduction broken into two sections. The first section provides a brief sketch of the historical, social, and biographical context in which Mill wrote and the second traces the central line of argument in the text to aid in the comprehension of the essay's structure, method, and major theses.

  14. On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life
  15. On the Basis of Morality

    Arthur Schopenhauer
    Translated by E. F. J. Payne
    Introduction by David E. Cartwright

    On the Basis of Morality

    "Schopenhauer’s On the Basis of Morality deserves to be a standard text for courses in religious ethics. It doesn’t fit into the prevalent genealogies of virtue ethics and utilitarianism, thus reminding us of other genealogies (pessimism, Nietzsche, Buddhism). It poses fundamental questions about the monotheistic background to the dominant ethical systems of the day as virtually no other work does. I have found that reading it after an intensive study of Kant’s ethical and religious writings leads to fantastic discussions, which open the floor for great insights into the relation of religion and ethics.”
         —Mark Larrimore, Princeton University

  16. On the Genealogy of Morality

    Friedrich Nietzsche
    Translation and Notes by Maudemarie Clark and Alan J. Swensen, Introduction by Maudemarie Clark

    On the Genealogy of Morality

    "Hackett’s On the Genealogy of Morality (we now have even the correct title!) may very well change the entire climate for reading Nietzsche in English—especially if read in conjunction with their equally splendid Twilight of the Idols. . . . Competing translations of Nietzsche’s late, utterly influential masterpieces have often made them a chore, rather than a delight, to read; and their introductions generally obscure, rather than illuminate, the texts’ situations. Clark and Swensen (and Polt and Strong) have made the Genealogy and Twilight accessible and exhilarating—while leaving them, as they are, enigmatic and problematic. Finally, readers of Nietzsche in English can—begin!”
         —William Arctander O’Brien, University of California, San Diego

  17. Principles of the Philosophy of the Future

    Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach
    Translated by Manfred Vogel

    Principles of the Philosophy of the Future

    Includes an introduction, selected bibliography, and index.

  18. Selected Letters of Friedrich Nietzsche

    Friedrich Nietzsche
    Translated and edited by Christopher Middleton

    Selected Letters of Friedrich Nietzsche

    This collection of more than two hundred of Nietzsche’s letters offers a representative body of correspondence on subjects of main concern to him—philosophy, history, morals, music and literature. Also included are letters of biographical interest which, in Middleton’s words, “mark the stresses and turnings of his life.” Among the addressees are Richard Wagner, Erwin Rohde, Jacob Burkhardt, Lou Salomé, his mother, and his sister Elisabeth. The “annihilating split” in Nietzsche’s personality that has been associated with his collapse on a street in Turin in 1889 is described in a moving letter from Franz Overbeck which forms the Epilogue. Index.

  19. Spirit

    G. W. F. Hegel
    Edited, with Introduction, Notes, and Commentary, by Daniel E. Shannon, Translation by The Hegel Translation Group, Trinity College, University of Toronto


    "One problem in teaching Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit is the sheer size of the work, which makes it intractable within the time limits of the typical North American university semester course. The judicious instructor can use this pivotal Chapter Six of the book as a vehicle for summing up the themes that Hegel has been developing from the beginning, and for anticipating the conclusion to which they lead. Students are more likely to grasp the substance of the work by this method than by the usual practice of concentrating on the Preface and the first three Chapters. Most misunderstandings of Hegel are due to the limitations of precisely this practice. Chapter Six is a literary and philosophical masterpiece in its own right. I cannot think of any more perceptive synthetic view of the development of European culture than is contained here.”
         —George di Giovanni, McGill University

  20. The Classical Utilitarians: Bentham and Mill

    Jeremy Bentham & John Stuart Mill
    Edited, with Introduction, by John Troyer

    The Classical Utilitarians: Bentham and Mill

    This volume includes the complete texts of two of John Stuart Mill’s most important works, Utilitarianism and On Liberty, and selections from his other writings, including the complete text of his “Remarks on Bentham’s Philosophy.” The selection from Mill’s “A System of Logic” is of special relevance to the debate between those who read Mill as an Act-Utilitarian and those who interpret him as a Rule-Utilitarian. Also included are selections from the writings of Jeremy Bentham, founder of modern Utilitarianism and mentor (together with James Mill) of John Stuart Mill.

  21. The Encyclopaedia Logic

    G. W. F. Hegel
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by T. F. Geraets, W. A. Suchting, and H. S. Harris

    The Encyclopaedia Logic

    “The appearance of this translation is a major event in English-language Hegel studies, for it is more than simply a replacement for Wallace’s translation cum paraphrase. Hegel’s Prefaces to each of the three editions of the Enzyklopädie are translated for the first time into English. There is a very detailed Introduction translating Hegel’s German, which serves not only as a guide to the translator’s usage but also to Hegel’s. Also included are a detailed bilingual annotated glossary, very extensive bibliographic and interpretive notes to Hegel’s text (28 pp.), an Index of References for works cited in the notes, a select Bibliography of recent works on Hegel’s logic, and a detailed Index (16 pp.). The translation is guided by the (correct) principle that rendering Hegel’s logical thought clearly and consistently requires rendering his technical terms logically. . . . This ought immediately to become the standard translation of this important work.”
         —Kenneth R. Westphal, in Review of Metaphysics

  22. The Philosophy of Right

    G. W. F. Hegel
    Translated, with Introductory Essay and Glossary, by Alan White

    The Philosophy of Right

    Designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in philosophy and political science, this edition features a glossary keyed to the primary occurrences of important terms in the text and provides insights into the concepts beyond the translation—an especially useful pedagogical device for students coming to Hegel for the first time.

    John Stuart Mill
    Edited by Susan M. Okin

    The Subjection of Women

    “An excellent and affordable edition, with a pithy introduction by Okin that that contextualizes and summarizes the argument well. Mill’s work affords insight not only into the issue of women’s emancipation, but also into the world of 19th century liberalism: its views of history, of class, and of slavery.”
         —Peter C. Caldwell, Rice University

  24. The Vocation of Man

    Johann Gottlieb Fichte
    Translated by Peter Preuss

    The Vocation of Man

    Includes a translator's Introduction, selected bibliography, and note on the text.

  25. Theories of Human Nature

    Joel J. Kupperman

    Theories of Human Nature

    “A very fine book on human nature, both what it is and what philosophers have thought about it—philosophers in an inclusive sense, from Plato and Aristotle to Mengzi and Xunzi, from Hume and Kant to Ibn al-Arabi to Marx and Rousseau and including many others. The writing is lively and accessible, the philosophy insightful, and the sense of human possibilities conveyed admirable. It will fit nicely into many different sorts of classes.”
         —John Perry, Stanford University

  26. Theory of Scientific Method (Second Edition)

    William Whewell
    Edited, with Introduction, by Robert E. Butts

    Theory of Scientific Method (Second Edition)

    This volume includes Whewell’s seminal studies of the logic of induction (with his critique of Mill’s theory), arguments for his realist view that science discovers necessary truths about nature, and exercises in the epistemology and ontology of science. The book sets forth a coherent statement of a historically important philosophy of science whose influence has never been greater: every one of Whewell’s fundamental ideas about the philosophy of science is presented here.

  27. Twilight of the Idols

    Friedrich Nietzsche
    Translated by Richard Polt
    Introduction by Tracy Strong

    Twilight of the Idols

    Twilight of the Idols presents a vivid, compressed overview of many of Nietzsche’s mature ideas, including his attack on Plato’s Socrates and on the Platonic legacy in Western philosophy and culture. Polt provides a trustworthy rendering of Nietzsche’s text in contemporary American English, complete with notes prepared by the translator and Tracy Strong. An authoritative Introduction by Strong makes this an outstanding edition. Select Bibliography and Index.

  28. Utilitarianism (Sher, Second Edition)

    John Stuart Mill
    Edited by George Sher

    Utilitarianism (Sher, Second Edition)

    This expanded edition of John Stuart Mill’s Utilitarianism includes the text of his 1868 speech to the British House of Commons defending the use of capital punishment in cases of aggravated murder. The speech is significant both because its topic remains timely and because its arguments illustrate the applicability of the principle of utility to questions of large-scale social policy.

  29. Writings of the Young Marx on Philosophy and Society

    Karl Marx
    Edited and Translated by Loyd D. Easton and Kurt H. Guddat

    Writings of the Young Marx on Philosophy and Society

    “Lucid translations into idiomatic English. They are clearer than the original German version! Our students struggle with Marx and they will appreciate a more ‘user - friendly’ translation.”
         —John Brunn, Chabot College
