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

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

    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.

  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. Beginning Logic

    E. J. Lemmon

    Beginning Logic

    “One of the most careful and intensive among the introductory texts that can be used with a wide range of students. It builds remarkably sophisticated technical skills, a good sense of the nature of a formal system, and a solid and extensive background for more advanced work in logic. . . . The emphasis throughout is on natural deduction derivations, and the text’s deductive systems are its greatest strength. Lemmon’s unusual procedure of presenting derivations before truth tables is very effective.”
         —Sarah Stebbins, The Journal of Symbolic Logic

    Published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in the U.K. Available from Hackett in the U.S. only.

  4. 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.

  5. Beyond Freedom and Dignity

    B. F. Skinner

    Beyond Freedom and Dignity

    In this profound and profoundly controversial work, a landmark of 20th-century thought originally published in 1971, B. F. Skinner makes his definitive statement about humankind and society. Beyond Freedom and Dignity urges us to reexamine the ideals we have taken for granted and to consider the possibility of a radically behaviorist approach to human problems—one that has appeared to some incompatible with those ideals, but which envisions the building of a world in which humankind can attain its greatest possible achievements.

  8. British Moralists: 1650-1800, Vols. I and II

    Edited, with Notes and Analytical Index, by D. D. Raphael

    British Moralists: 1650-1800, Vols. I and II

    “These two attractive volumes replace Selby-Bigge’s well-known collection. . . . The present selection is superior in several respects. It is more inclusive, now that Hume, Hartley, Reid, and Cumberland are put in. . . . It is better arranged, the writers now appearing in chronological order. And besides reediting of the texts, the analytical index has been enormously enlarged and improved. . . . The book will be much more useful to students than its predecessor.”

    Mark Siderits

    Buddhism as Philosophy

    In this clear, concise account, Siderits makes the Buddhist tradition accessible to a Western audience, offering generous selections from the canonical Buddhist texts and providing an engaging, analytical introduction to the basic tenets of Buddhist thought. (Co-published in the U.K. by Ashgate Publishing. North American rights only)

  10. Byzantine Philosophy

    Basil Tatakis
    Translated, with Introduction, and Notes, by Nicholas Moutafakis

    Byzantine Philosophy

    “The translation of Tatakis’ 1949 book is a welcome contribution to the field as it offers a remarkable overview of Byzantine philosophy for specialists and students alike. . . . Moutafakis has performed a great service to the English-speaking academic world not only with his very readable translation of what is standard reading material in many universities in Europe but also with the useful list (at the end of the book) of contributions to the field made after the original French edition.”
         —Yannis Papadoyannakis, Religious Studies Review

  11. Can Animals and Machines Be Persons?

    Justin Leiber

    Can Animals and Machines Be Persons?

    “Written in a lively and entertaining style, this little book, which deals with topics such as ‘personhood,’ animal rights, and artificial intelligence . . . makes some rather difficult philosophical points clear in an unpedantic fashion.”
         —M. E. Winston, Trenton State College

  12. Candide

    Voltaire
    Translated, with Introduction, and Notes, by David Wootton

    Candide

    “Along with a brisk and very readable rendition of the text, this edition provides the material necessary for understanding the point of Voltaire’s satire. Wootton’s Introduction gives an excellent account of the dispute over optimism, and the supplementary texts show both the opposing points of view in this dispute, and its development on other texts of Voltaire.”
         —Christopher J. Kelly, co-editor, The Collected Writings of Rousseau

  13. Certainty

    Edited, with Introduction, by Jonathan Westphal

    Certainty

    “The selections are well chosen . . . the Introduction and headnotes are extremely clear and well written . . . appropriately pegged for a very introductory audience.”
         —Steven Gerrard, Williams College

    Challenges to Empiricism

  15. Charmides

    Plato
    Translated by T. G. West and G. S. West

    Charmides

    A literal translation, allowing the simplicity and vigor of the Greek diction to shine through.

  16. Classical Arabic Philosophy

    Translated with Introduction, Notes, and Glossary by Jon McGinnis & David C. Reisman

    Classical Arabic Philosophy

    "This book will make a major impact on the study, and especially the teaching, of Arabic philosophy.  A major difficulty with this field has been the lack of any adequate textbook of sources. . . . Reisman and McGinnis not only provide here a rich selection of texts that could be the basis for even a full-year course on Arabic thought, but also manage to translate several important works for the first time; they also include some standards that would probably be missed were they not here.  It will no doubt become the standard anthology used in courses on Arabic philosophy, and I will use it this way myself.  The team of McGinnis and Reisman is an ideal one. . . All in all, this project is to be greeted with immense enthusiasm."
         —Peter Adamson, King's College London

  17. Classical Logic and Its Rabbit-Holes

    Nelson P. Lande

    Classical Logic and Its Rabbit-Holes

    "Many students ask, 'What is the point of learning formal logic?' This book gives them the answer. Using the methods of deductive logic, Nelson Lande introduces each new element in exquisite detail, as he takes students through example after example, proof after proof, explaining the thinking behind each concept. Shaded areas and appendices throughout the book provide explanations and justifications that go beyond the main text, challenging those students who wish to delve deeper, and giving instructors the option of confining their course to the basics, or expanding it, when they wish, to more rigorous levels. Lande encourages students to think for themselves, while at the same time providing them with the level of explanation they need to succeed. It is a rigorous approach presented in a style that is informal, engaging, and accessible. Students will come away with a solid understanding of formal logic and why it is not only important, but also interesting and sometimes even fun. It is a text that brings the human element back into the teaching of logic."
         —Hans Halvorson, Princeton University

  18. Classics of Analytic Philosophy

    Edited, with Introduction, by Robert Ammerman

    Classics of Analytic Philosophy

    This anthology of the central writings of the analytical tradition is widely regarded as the most useful such volume for teaching purposes. Clustered around issues in the philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and metaphysics, many of the pieces were written in direct response to one another and illustrate a variety of approaches to key problems in the analytic tradition.

Morgan’s Classics of Moral and Political Theory broadens the scope and increases the versatility of this landmark anthology by offering new selections from Aristotle’s Politics, Aquinas’ Disputed Questions on Virtue and Treatise on Law, as well as the entirety of Locke’s Letter Concerning Toleration, Kant’s To Perpetual Peace, and Nietzsche’s On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life.

    Classics of Western Philosophy (Eighth Edition)

    The Eighth Edition of Steven M. Cahn's Classics of Western Philosophy offers the same exacting standard of editing and translation that made earlier editions of this anthology the most highly valued and widely used volume of its kind. But the Eighth Edition offers exciting new content as well, including Plato's Laches (complete), new selections from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics (on courage), Descartes' Discourse on Method (complete), all previously omitted sections of Berkeley's A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge, and Kant's Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics (complete).

  21. Clouds (Meineck Edition)

    Aristophanes
    Translated, with Notes, by Peter Meineck
    Introduction by Ian C. Storey

    Clouds (Meineck Edition)

    "Since the appearance of Sommerstein’s very successful literal translation less than twenty years ago, there have been at least five further new published attempts at rendering the play into English. It is certainly a bold enterprise to introduce yet one more translation onto the scene, but Peter Meineck has risen well to the challenge. The translation is straightforward and idiomatic, as well as well-paced and funny. . . Ian Storey’s Introduction is perfect for undergraduates.”
         —Max Nelson, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

  22. Color for Philosophers

    C. L. Hardin
    Foreward by Arthur Danto

    Color for Philosophers

    “Much the best philosophically orientated book about colour that has been written. . . . It has none of the philosophical crudity which mars scientific accounts of colour, and none of the scientific ignorance which makes so many philosophical accounts of colour worthless or worse. . . . Time and again I found myself unexpectedly convinced at a point whose opposite I had believed. I have in mind particularly the later sections on ‘Other colours, other minds’, language foci, and ‘boundaries and indeterminacy’. It is annoying, but also exhilarating, to be relieved of some stubborn and treasured opinions.”
         —Jonathan Westphal, Mind

  23. Commentary on Aristotle's Politics

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated, with a Preface, by Richard J. Regan

    Commentary on Aristotle's Politics

    Offering the first complete translation into modern English of Aquinas’ unfinished commentary on Aristotle’s Politics, this translation follows the definitive Leonine text of Aquinas and reproduces in English those passages of William of Moerbeke’s exacting yet elliptical translation of the Politics from which Aquinas worked.  Bekker numbers have been added to passages from the Politics for easy reference. Students of the history of political thought will welcome this study of a great classic, a commentary by a student of Aristotle who is also a great political theorist in his own right.

  24. Companion To Lemmon's Beginning Logic

    Prepared by George Schumm

    Companion To Lemmon's Beginning Logic

    This brief volume supplements Lemmon’s classic introductory logic text with almost 200 new exercises, many of them solved, solutions to selected exercises in Beginning Logic itself, a helpful commentary on Lemmon’s use of key technical terms, alternative formulations, and advice to students.

  25. 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

  26. Confucian Moral Self Cultivation (Second Edition)

    Philip J. Ivanhoe

    Confucian Moral Self Cultivation (Second Edition)

    A concise and accessible introduction to the evolution of the concept of moral self-cultivation in the Chinese Confucian tradition, this volume begins with an explanation of the pre-philosophical development of ideas central to this concept, followed by an examination of the specific treatment of self cultivation in the philosophy of Kongzi ("Confucius"), Mengzi ("Mencius"), Xunzi, Zhu Xi, Wang Yangming, Yan Yuan and Dai Zhen. In addition to providing a survey of the views of some of the most influential Confucian thinkers on an issue of fundamental importance to the tradition, Ivanhoe also relates their concern with moral self-cultivation to a number of topics in the Western ethical tradition. Bibliography and index are included.

  27. Considerations on the Causes of the Greatness of the Romans and their Decline

    Montesquieu
    Translated by David Lowenthal

    Considerations on the Causes of the Greatness of the Romans and their Decline

    “It is wonderful to have David Lowenthal’s splendid translation of Montesquieu’s Considerations on the Causes of the Greatness of the Romans and their Decline back in print. This neglected masterpiece deserves attention from all who are concerned with self-government—whether their focus is on history or on its prospects in our own time.”
         —Paul A. Rahe, University of Tulsa

  28. Consolation of Philosophy

    Boethius
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Joel C. Relihan

    Consolation of Philosophy

    "Entirely faithful to Boethius' Latin; Relihan's translation makes the philosophy of the Consolation intelligible to readers; it gives equal weight to the poetry—in fact, Relihan's metrical translation of Boethius' metra are themselves contributions of the first moment to Boethian studies. Boethius finally has a translator equal to his prodigious talents and his manifold vision."
         —Joseph Pucci, Brown University

  29. Cratylus

    Plato
    Translated, with Introduction, by C. D. C. Reeve

    Cratylus

    “It is. . . remarkable that Reeve’s is the first new English translation since Fowler’s Loeb edition of 1926. Fortunately, Reeve has done an excellent job. His version is not slavishly literal but is in general very accurate. It is also very clear and readable. Reeve is particularly to be congratulated for having produced versions of some of the more torturous passages, which are not only faithful to the text but also make good sense in English. The long and detailed introduction is worth reading in its own right.”
         —R. F. Stalley, The Classical Review

  30. Critique of Judgment

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated by Werner S. Pluhar
    Foreword by Mary J. Gregor

    Critique of Judgment

    “Pluhar maintains a fine, even tone throughout. . . . Those who have found the prospect of teaching the third Critique daunting will admire its clarity. . . . No one will be disappointed.”
          —Timothy Sean Quinn, The Review of Metaphysics

  31. Critique of Practical Reason

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated by Werner S. Pluhar
    Introduction by Stephen Engstrom

    Critique of Practical Reason

    With this volume, Werner Pluhar completes his work on Kant’s three Critiques, an accomplishment unique among English language translators of Kant. At once accurate, fluent, and accessible, Pluhar’s rendition of the Critique of Practical Reason meets the standards set in his widely respected translations of the Critique of Judgment (1987) and the Critique of Pure Reason (1996). Stephen Engstrom's Introduction discusses the place of the second Critique in Kant's critical philosophy, its relation to Kant's ethics, and its practical purpose and provides an illuminating outline of Kant's argument.

  32. Critique of Pure Reason

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated by Werner S. Pluhar
    Notes by Werner S. Pluhar and James W. Ellington
    Introduction by Patricia Kitcher

    Critique of Pure Reason

    “The text rendered by Pluhar is the work of an expert translator . . . the virtues of his text are manifold; his translation exhibits an incontrovertible mastery of both English and German. Equally important is the fact that Pluhar has given the original a very close read during the act of translating. . . . Pluhar consistently resists the tendency to translate woodenly word-for-word. . . . In point of fact, accuracy of translation stands in no direct relation to literalness; it is much more a product of meticulous textual reading and skilful writing, and in this respect Pluhar has no modern equals in English Kant translation.”
         —James Jakob Fehr, Kant-Studien

  33. Critique of Pure Reason, Abridged

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated by Werner S. Pluhar
    Abridged, with Introduction, by Eric Watkins

    Critique of Pure Reason, Abridged

    “Eric Watkins has done a fine job of abridging the Critique to a manageable size while preserving those sections most often assigned in a survey course, including enough of the Analytic to provide a continuous argument. Students will get a good sense of the whole from the parts he includes. I recommend it enthusiastically.”
         —Kenneth R. Winkler, Wellesley College

  34. De Anima (Reeve Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by C. D. C. Reeve

    De Anima (Reeve Edition)

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "This is C. D. C. Reeve's entirely new version of Aristotle's fascinating, and at the same time superbly difficult, text. The translation is faithful, concise, and extraordinarily thoughtful. Any student of the De Anima will no doubt greatly profit from it. Reeve's Introduction focuses on the place of the study of the soul in Aristotle's biology and—controversially—theology. With this he provides a refreshing and highly instructive counterpoint to an idea still very powerful in the secondary literature. This is the thought that the De Anima pertains to the province of 'the philosophy of mind.' Reeve shows that the De Anima is much more than this. A remarkable contribution." —Klaus Corcilius, University of California, Berkeley and The University of Tübingen

  35. De Anima (Shiffman Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, Mark Shiffman

    De Anima (Shiffman Edition)

    "Shiffman's fidelity both to Aristotle's text and to opening the complex thought contained therein to the contemporary reader is evident throughout this translation. It neither attempts to resolve difficulty nor drown the reader in obscurity; instead, it invites the reader to puzzle through this magnificent and difficult text herself. The wonderful introduction supplies any number of tools to do so and is a model of the rigorous and restrained articulation of essential themes and contemporary resonances. The glossary contains an indispensable and illuminating discussion of terms. Readable and thought-provoking, this translation is particularly well-suited for the classroom. Students at all levels will benefit from its lucidity and provocation to thought."
         —Sara Brill, Fairfield University

    Warren Goldfarb

    Deductive Logic

    "Warren Goldfarb's long-awaited Deductive Logic is an unusually perspicuous and effective logic textbook. It succeeds in achieving great precision without seeming pedantic and great depth without compromising accessibility. One main advantage of this book relative to its competitors is the lucidity with which it explains, in ways that even beginners can fully appreciate, the rapport between semantic and syntactic captures of logical consequence. Another marked advantage is the book's emphasis on deduction and its insistence on motivating the various clauses of the rules of deduction by showing, for example, what would ensue had these clauses been flouted. In this, Deductive Logic fills a real lacuna in logic-instruction and avoids the common pedagogical pitfalls of instruction via the tree method, where students find it rather mysterious why and how the method really works. The book is written in a clear and lively style and contains numerous exercises of varying degrees of difficulty. It is ideally suited for students in philosophy and computer science."
         —Ori Simchen, University of British Columbia

  37. Democracy in America

    Alexis De Tocqueville
    Abridged, with Introduction, by Sanford Kessler
    Translated and Annotated by Stephen D. Grant

    Democracy in America

    “A handy paperback edition offered primarily to teachers and students who can make no pretense of reading the entirety of the large work, but who want to sample some of its chief delights. . . . [Grant gives us an] exemplary translation . . . marked above all by great accuracy and fidelity to Tocqueville’s text. . . . Kessler’s editor’s Introduction is a model introduction to a classic text for today’s students. It is clearly written, compact (without being too short or dense), and nicely structured. . . . A tour—and translation—well worth the price of admission.”
         —Paul Seaton, Perspectives on Political Science

  38. Dewey: Political Writings

    John Dewey
    Edited by D. Morris and Ian Shapiro

    Dewey: Political Writings

    Includes notes on sources and editions and an editor's introduction.

  39. 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

  40. Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (Second Edition)

  42. Discourse on Method (Cress, Third Edition)

    René Descartes
    Translated by Donald A. Cress

    Discourse on Method (Cress, Third Edition)

    René Descartes
    Translated, with Introduction, by Paul J. Olscamp

    Discourse on Method, Optics, Geometry, and Meteorology

    This volume preserves the format in which Discourse on Method was originally published: as a preface to Descartes’s writings on optics, geometry, and meteorology.

  47. Discourse on Voluntary Servitude

    Étienne de La Boétie
    Translated by James B. Atkinson & David Sices
    Introduction and Notes by James B. Atkinson

    Discourse on Voluntary Servitude

    "An excellent translation: clear, crisp and accurate. The introduction is also a helpful contextualization of the text, Boétie's relation to Montaigne, and a brief discussion of the history of this important text on non-cooperation in the 20th-Century. I highly recommend it for courses in the history of political theory and of non-cooperation as a means of regime change."
         —James Tully, Department of Political Science, University of Victoria

  48. Disputed Questions on Virtue

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated by Jeffrey Hause and Claudia Eisen Murphy
    Introduction and Commentary by Jeffrey Hause

    Disputed Questions on Virtue

    "Hause and Murphy are to be congratulated. [Their volume's] strong points are numerous and important. The translation is clear and faithful. A real advantage is using the as yet unpublished Leonine text, which is significantly superior to the Marietti edition. The translators retain the disputed question format. And the whole series is translated. Hause offers an extend commentary which is solid and helpful for beginning readers. . . . Even for Aquinas, who semper loquitur formalissime, first rate translations are hard to come by; and we have one here. . . . A gem."
         —R. E. Houser, University of St. Thomas (Houston, TX), in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
