  1. A Debate on Jewish Emancipation and Christian Theology in Old Berlin

    David Friedländer, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Wilhelm Abraham Teller
    Edited and Translated by Richard Crouter and Julie Klassen

    A Debate on Jewish Emancipation and Christian Theology in Old Berlin

    "One of the most fascinating and, indeed, seminal debates in the protracted struggle of German Jewry to gain full citizenship and civic equality. As the translators make clear in their learned and generally lucid Introduction, this debate illuminates the enduring difficulty of modern nation states to establish a civic society that is, if not religiously neutral, at least inclusive. . . . It will surely enter the canon of standard works in the study of modern Jewish history."
         —Paul Mendes-Flohr, Hebrew University

  2. Anselm: Basic Writings

    Anselm
    Translated, with Introduction, by Thomas Williams

    Anselm: Basic Writings

    Ranging from his early treatises, the Monologion (a work written to show his monks how to meditate on the divine essence) and the Proslogion (best known for its advancement of the so-called ontological argument for the existence of God), to his three philosophical dialogues on metaphysical topics such as the relationship between freedom and sin, and late treatises on the Incarnation and salvation, this collection of Anselm's essential writings will be a boon to students of the history of philosophy and theology as well as to anyone interested in examining what Anselm calls "the reason of faith."

  3. Apology for Raymond Sebond

    Michel de Montaigne
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Roger Ariew and Marjorie Grene

    Apology for Raymond Sebond

    “Roger Ariew and Marjorie Grene, with the help of Hackett’s modest pricing scheme, have made this challenging, infuriating, ironic and hilarious classic readily available in a faithful and well-presented translation. . . . Scholars will find this volume a fine choice for introducing students to early modern philosophy. . . . This is a welcome publication.”
         —Craig Walton, Philosophy in Review

  4. Basic Writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, 2 Volume Set

    Thomas Aquinas
    Edited and Annotated, with Introduction, by Anton C. Pegis

    Basic Writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, 2 Volume Set

    Includes the whole of the First Part of the Summa Theologica and substantial selections from the Second Part and the Summa Contra Gentiles. Pegis’s revision and correction of the English Dominican Translation renders Aquinas’ technical terminology consistently as it conveys the directness and simplicity of Aquinas’ writing; the Introduction, notes, and index aim at giving the text its proper historical setting, and the reader the means of studying St. Thomas within that setting.

  5. Basic Writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, Volume 2 of 2

    Thomas Aquinas

    Basic Writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, Volume 2 of 2

    Includes substantial selections from the Second Part of the Summa Theologica and the Summa Contra Gentiles. Pegis’s revision and correction of the English Dominican Translation renders Aquinas’ technical terminology consistently as it conveys the directness and simplicity of Aquinas’ writing; the Introduction, notes, and index aim at giving the text its proper historical setting, and the reader the means of studying St. Thomas within that setting.

  6. Confessions (Second Edition)

    Augustine
    Translated by F. J. Sheed
    Introduction by Peter Brown, Notes by Michael Foley

    Confessions (Second Edition)

    “This translation is already a classic. It is the translation that has guided three generations of students and readers into a renewed appreciation of the beauty and urgency of a masterpiece of Christian autobiography. This is largely because the translator has caught not only the meaning of Augustine’s Confessions, but a large measure of its poetry.  It makes the Latin sing in English as it did when it came from the pen of Augustine, some sixteen hundred years ago. Deeply rooted in the tradition of which Augustine was himself a principal founder, this translation is not only modern: it is a faithful echo, in a language that has carried throughout the ages, of its author’s original passion and disquiet.”
         —Peter Brown

  7. Dialogue on Good, Evil, and the Existence of God

    John Perry

    Dialogue on Good, Evil, and the Existence of God

    "Perry’s work is an engaging, highly readable introduction to the problem of natural and moral evil with respect to belief in an omniscient, omnipotent, and morally perfect God. This dialogue would work well as a supplement in either an introduction to philosophy or philosophy of religion course. . . . Perry is to be commended for taking a very difficult subject and making it accessible to a more general audience.”
         —Jeff Wisdom, Biola University

  8. Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (Second Edition)

    David Hume
    Edited by Richard H. Popkin

    Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (Second Edition)

    Hume's brilliant and dispassionate essay "Of Miracles" has been added in this expanded edition of his Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, which also includes "Of the Immortality of the Soul," "Of Suicide," and Richard Popkin's illuminating Introduction.

  9. Does God Exist? (Second Edition)

    Todd C. Moody

    Does God Exist? (Second Edition)

    In this engaging introductory dialogue, Todd Moody maps the spectrum of philosophical arguments and counterarguments for the existence of God. Structuring colloquial conversations along classical lines, he presents a lively and accessible discussion of issues that are central to both theist and atheist thinking, including the burden of proof, the first cause, a necessary being, the natural order, suffering, miracles, experience as knowledge, and rationality without proof.

  10. PNG

    Edited, with Introductions, by Timothy A. Robinson

    God (Second Edition)

    “I have found God to be the most balanced, readable, and enjoyable synthesis of philosophy of religion materials available today. My students insist it is the book they will not re-sell at the close of the semester.”
         —Dr. Virginia Osborn, Belmont University

  11. Monologion and Proslogion

    Anselm
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Thomas Williams

    Monologion and Proslogion

    "Williams's translations are scrupulously faithful and accurate without being slavishly literal, and yet are lively and graceful."
         —Paul Vincent Spade, Indiana University

  12. On Faith and Reason

    Thomas Aquinas
    Edited, with Introduction and Notes, by Stephen F. Brown

    On Faith and Reason

    "Stephen Brown of Boston College has done an extremely useful service in providing this anthology of appropriate readings on Aquinas and his views on ‘faith and reason.’ The selections are intelligently chosen; the introduction to the book is excellent, especially the section locating Aquinas over against Augustine."
         —Ian Markham, Theological Book Review

  13. Pensées

    Blaise Pascal
    Translated, with Introduction, by Roger Ariew

    Pensées

    This eloquent and philosophically astute translation is the first complete English translation based on the Sellier edition of Pascal’s manuscript, widely accepted as the manuscript that is closest to the version Pascal left behind on his death in 1662. A brief history of the text, a select bibliography of primary and secondary sources, a chronology of Pascal’s life and works, concordances between the Sellier and Lafuma editions of the original, and an index are provided.

  14. PNG (200 x 260)

    Edited, with Introduction, by Arthur Hyman, James J. Walsh, & Thomas Williams

    Philosophy in the Middle Ages (Third Edition)

    The third edition builds on the strengths of the second by preserving its essential shape while adding several important new texts—including works by Augustine, Boethius, Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, Anselm, al-Fārābī, al-Ghazālī, Ibn Rushd, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, and John Duns Scotus—and featuring new translations of many others. The volume has also been redesigned and its bibliographies updated with the needs of a new generation of students in mind.

  15. Proslogion

    Anselm
    Translated, with Introduction, by Thomas Williams

    Proslogion

    "Williams' translation is scrupulously faithful and accurate without being slavishly literal, and yet is lively and graceful to both the eye and the ear."     
         —Paul Vincent Spade, Indiana University

  16. Readings in Classical Political Thought

    Edited by Peter J. Steinberger

    Readings in Classical Political Thought

    “A distinctive and superior collection of texts suitable for both graduate and undergraduate courses. There is nothing like it elsewhere. Steinberger’s commentary is succint, accurate, and very useful.”
         —Dr. Melvin Kulbicki, York College of Pennsylvania

  17. Reframing Politics in the Hebrew Bible

    Edited, with Introduction and Notes, by Mira Morgenstern

    Reframing Politics in the Hebrew Bible

    Inspired by the Enlightenment readings of Hebrew biblical texts generated in the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, Mira Morgenstern's Reframing Politics in the Hebrew Bible goes beyond the pioneering interpretations of various biblical texts penned by such noted Bible students as Spinoza, Rousseau, and Angelina Grimké to present an introduction to the Hebrew Bible as a whole from the perspective of a modern-day political theorist. In doing so, it offers a brilliant thematic guide to the Hebrew Bible's most politically salient passages, complete with text and commentary. Morgenstern's account of the significance of these ancient yet strangely modern texts will fascinate students of both ancient and modern political theory—as well as all readers of the Hebrew Bible itself.

  18. Religion within the Bounds of Bare Reason

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated, with Notes, by Werner S. Pluhar
    Introduction by Stephen R. Palmquist

    Religion within the Bounds of Bare Reason

    Werner S. Pluhar's masterful rendering of Kant's major work on religion is meticulously annotated and presented here with a selected bibliography, glossary, and generous index. Stephen R. Palmquist's engaging Introduction provides historical background, discusses Religion in the context of Kant's philosophical system, elucidates Kant's main arguments, and explores the implications and ongoing relevance of the work.

  19. The Journey of the Mind to God

    Bonaventure
    Translated by Philotheus Boehner, O.F.M.
    Edited, with Introduction, by Stephen F. Brown

    The Journey of the Mind to God

    The Hackett edition of this classic of medieval philosophy and mysticism—a plan of pilgrimage for the learned Franciscan wishing to reach the apex of the mystical experience—combines the highly regarded Boehner translation with a new introduction by Stephen Brown focusing on St. Francis as a model of the contemplative life, the meaning of the Itinerarium, its place in Bonaventure’s mystical theology, and the plan of the work. Boehner’s Latin Notes, as well as Latin texts from other works of Bonaventure included in the Franciscan Institute Edition, are rendered here in English, making this the edition of choice for the beginning student.

  20. The Philosophy of Josiah Royce

    Josiah Royce
    Edited by John K. Roth

    The Philosophy of Josiah Royce

    “There’s nothing available that I know of that comes as close to representing the range of
    Royce’s works. . . . ”
         —John H. Lavely

  21. The Treatise on the Divine Nature

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated, with Commentary, by Brian J. Shanley, O.P.
    Introduction by Robert Pasnau

    The Treatise on the Divine Nature

    "Fr Shanley's translation is clear, idiomatic, and accurate.  A particular virtue of the translation is that it frequently indicates along the way which Latin terms are being rendered into English as Fr Shanley renders them. This kind of flagging will help readers to get a better sense of what Aquinas is saying than they might otherwise do. . . . [The] commentary is lucid, well informed, clearly written, and, given its word count, very comprehensive. Fr Shanley homes in on just what one would look for in a volume like the present. Hence we find him explaining Aquinas's technical terms and showing how bits of Summa Theologiae I, 1-13 connect with each other.  He also relates Aquinas to previous and contemporary thinkers with whom Aquinas is engaging. The end product is something that can be warmly recommended to anyone looking for what Fr Shanley has tried to provide."
         –Brian Davies, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
