  1. Moral Literacy

    Colin Mcginn

    Moral Literacy

    “A great resource for beginning ethics courses. The book is short and yet it richly embodies the methods of ethical thinking about practical moral problems that are hard for students to learn unless they see them in action. McGinn perspicuously sets out a small set of basic principles and then attacks the problems of our treatment of animals, abortion, sex, censorship, and so on, with a masterful blend of attention to real-life cases and imaginary thought experiments. McGinn hardly claims to have the last word on the complex issues he discusses, and students will find many exciting problems and points to take up.”
         —Owen Flanagan, Duke University

  2. Moral Philosophy

    David Hume
    Edited, with Introduction, by Geoffrey Sayre-McCord

    Moral Philosophy

    "A genuine understanding of Hume's extraordinarily rich, important, and influential moral philosophy requires familiarity with all of his writings on vice and virtue, the passions, the will, and even judgments of beauty—and that means familiarity not only with large portions of A Treatise of Human Nature, but also with An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals and many of his essays as well.  This volume is the one truly comprehensive collection of Hume's work on all of these topics.  Geoffrey Sayre-McCord, a leading moral philosopher and Hume scholar, has done a meticulous job of editing the texts and has provided an extensive Introduction that is at once accessible, accurate, and philosophically engaging, revealing the deep structure of Hume's moral philosophy."
         —Don Garrett, New York University

  3. PNG (200 x 260)

    Edited by Louis P. Pojman and Peter Tramel

    Moral Philosophy: A Reader (Fourth Edition)

    This collection of classic and contemporary readings in ethics presents sharp, competing views on a wide range of fundamentally important topics: moral relativism and objectivism, ethical egoism, value theory, utilitarianism, deontological ethics, virtue ethics, ethics and religion, and applied ethics. The Fourth Edition dramatically increases the volume’s utility by expanding and updating the selections and introductions while retaining the structure that has made previous editions so successful. (North American rights only)

  4. Morality's Critics and Defenders

    Timm Triplett

    Morality's Critics and Defenders

    "The risk, when teaching ethics to undergraduates, is that the issues may easily sound too abstract and bookish to them. Timm Triplett's Morality's Critics and Defenders: A Philosophical Dialogue is the best antidote. By adopting a dialogical form and setting the stage in a classroom, with four very credible students and one teaching assistant as the protagonists, this concise but very valuable book will engage students and stimulate great class discussions. Big issues such as the relationship between religion and morality, the possibility of ethical relativism, animal rights and the moral implications of racism are engagingly covered and so are the most relevant moral perspectives. Students and teachers will undoubtedly find this book very useful, deep, and entertaining."
        —Mario De Caro, Tufts University

  5. Neoplatonic Philosophy

    Translated, with Introduction, by John Dillon and Lloyd P. Gerson

    Neoplatonic Philosophy

    The most comprehensive collection of Neoplatonic writings available in English, this volume provides translations of the central texts of four major figures of the Neoplatonic tradition: Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus, and Proclus. The general Introduction gives an overview of the period and takes a brief but revealing look at the history of ancient philosophy from the viewpoint of the Neoplatonists. Historical background—essential for understanding these powerful, difficult, and sometimes obscure thinkers—is provided in extensive footnotes, which also include cross-references to other works relevant to particular passages.

  6. Neoplatonism

    R. T. Wallis
    New Foreword and Bibliography by Lloyd P. Gerson

    Neoplatonism

    “An admirable account of a very difficult subject, remarkable for the erudition that clearly lies behind it as well as for its lucidity and good sense.”
         —Times Literary Supplement

  7. Nicomachean Ethics (Irwin, Second Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction, by Terence Irwin

    Nicomachean Ethics (Irwin, Second Edition)

    Building on the strengths of the first edition, the second edition of the Irwin Nicomachean Ethics features a revised translation (with little editorial intervention), expanded notes (including a summary of the argument of each chapter), an expanded Introduction, and a revised glossary.

  8. Nicomachean Ethics (Reeve Edition)

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

    Nicomachean Ethics (Reeve Edition)

    Series: The New Hackett Aristotle

    "C. D. C. Reeve's masterful new translation of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics will become a classic: it is clear and readable; its interpretive implications are far-reaching; it is philosophically illuminating. Reeve's scholarly notes—with detailed textual cross-references to the rest of Aristotle's works—integrate the ethics with the metaphysics, the politics, and the philosophy of mind. The book is an invaluable resource, useful to students and scholars alike."
         —Amelie Rorty, Tufts University and Harvard Medical School

  9. Nicomachean Ethics (Sachs Edition)

    Aristotle
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Joe Sachs

    Nicomachean Ethics (Sachs Edition)

    "Sachs's translations of Aristotle are truly exemplary. They combine a rare sensitivity to Aristotle's use of the Greek language with an English style that is straightforward and imaginative. But what makes Sachs's translations even more noteworthy is their attunement born of profound awareness of the untranslatability of this thought into modern philosophical concepts. For anyone seriously interested in Aristotle's philosophy, Sachs's translations are indispensable."
         —Burt Hopkins, Seattle University

  10. Notes from the Underground

    Fyodor Dostoevsky
    Translated by Constance Garnett
    Edited, with Introduction, by Charles Guignon and Kevin Aho

    Notes from the Underground

    Dostoevsky's disturbing and groundbreaking novella appears in this new annotated edition with an Introduction by Charles Guignon and Kevin Aho. An analogue of Guignon's widely praised Introduction to his 1993 edition of "The Grand Inquisitor," the editors' Introduction places the underground man in the context of European modernity, analyzes his inner dynamics in the light of the history of Russian cultural and intellectual life, and suggests compelling reasons for our own strange affinity for this nameless man who boldly declares, "I was rude and took pleasure in being so."

  11. Observations upon Experimental Philosophy, Abridged

    Margaret Cavendish
    Edited, with an Introduction, by Eugene Marshall

    Observations upon Experimental Philosophy, Abridged

    "Margaret Cavendish's philosophical work is at last taking its rightful place in the history of seventeenth-century thought, but her writings are so voluminous and wide-ranging that introducing her work to students has been difficult—at least until this volume came along. This carefully edited abridgment of Observations upon Experimental Philosophy will be indispensable for making Cavendish's fascinating ideas accessible to students. Marshall's Introduction provides a helpful overview of themes in Cavendish's natural philosophy, and the footnotes contain useful background information about some of the texts and philosophers that Cavendish mentions. The additional selections from Descartes, Hobbes, Boyle, and Hooke also help contextualize Cavendish's views."  —Deborah Boyle, College of Charleston

  12. Ockham: Philosophical Writings

    William of Ockham
    Translated and Edited by Philotheus Boehner O.F.M.
    Revised by Stephen F. Brown

    Ockham: Philosophical Writings

    This volume contains selections of Ockham’s philosophical writings which give a balanced introductory view of his work in logic, metaphysics, and ethics. This edition includes textual markings referring readers to appendices containing changes in the Latin text and alterations found in the English translation that have been made necessary by the critical edition of Ockham’s work published after Boehner prepared the original text. The updated bibliography includes the most important scholarship produced since publication of the original edition.

  13. PNG

    Sophocles
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Peter Meineck and Paul Woodruff

    Oedipus Tyrannus

    "A clear, vigorous, spare, actable translation, and with it, excellent apparatus (Intro., notes, bibliography); all in a slim and affordable volume. I will use when I next teach Oedipus. Hackett is an invaluable resource!”
         —Rachel Hadas, Rutgers University

  14. On Academic Scepticism

    Cicero
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Charles Brittain

    On Academic Scepticism

    "Brittain's On Academic Scepticism is more than a translation.  It is a thorough introduction to the study of one of Cicero's most important philosophical dialogues, a work which is the key to understanding Hellenistic scepticism and a great deal of the Latin philosophical tradition shaped by Cicero.  The translation is sharp and philosophically sensitive without betraying Cicero's elegant style; the Introduction (historical, philosophical, and philological) is compact, lucid, and authoritative.  At last this important work is accessible to those who do not read Latin; even those who do will turn to Brittain's book as a fundamental resource for years to come."
         —Brad Inwood, Canada Research Chair in Ancient Philosophy, University of Toronto

  15. 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.

  16. On Crimes and Punishments

    Beccaria
    Translated, with Notes & Introduction, by David Young

    On Crimes and Punishments

    Includes a translator’s preface, note on the text, and suggestions for further reading.

  17. On Evolution

    Charles Darwin
    Edited, with Introduction, by Thomas F. Glick and David Kohn

    On Evolution

    “An excellent selection. There is nothing else like it available in print, and the price makes it very attractive for use in courses. . . . overall the editors did a superb job of choosing those excerpts from Darwin’s published works and his correspondence and notebooks that will give the reader a sense of the full range of his interests and the substance of his ideas. The editorial remarks are . . . perceptive and directly relevant to the content.”
         —Gene Cittadino, New York University

  18. 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

  19. On Free Choice of the Will

    Augustine
    Translated, with Introduction, by Thomas Williams

    On Free Choice of the Will

    "Over the years that I've been teaching—nearly 44 at this point—I've come to rely on Hackett for editions of classical texts that are well done and affordable. For example, I greatly appreciate C.D.C. Reeve's the Republic, and I've used it as a text in my ancient and medieval philosophy class. The copy I just received of Augustine's On the Free Choice of the Will, translated and annotated by Thomas Williams, continues the Hackett tradition of affordable excellence."
         —Frank Fair, Sam Houston State University

  20. On Human Nature

    Thomas Aquinas
    Edited, with Introduction and Notes, by Thomas S. Hibbs

    On Human Nature

    “The substantial Introduction and the selection have been done . . . extremely well. The Introduction makes illuminating connections between the thought of Aquinas and Descartes. . . . The book’s usefulness is enhanced by the bibliography.”
          —Ian Markham, Theological Book Review

  21. On Justice, Power, and Human Nature

    Thucydides
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Paul Woodruff

    On Justice, Power, and Human Nature

    Designed for students with little or no background in ancient Greek language and culture, this collection of extracts from The History of the Peloponnesian War includes those passages that shed most light on Thucydides’ political theory—famous as well as important but lesser-known pieces frequently overlooked by nonspecialists. Newly translated into spare, vigorous English, and situated within a connective narrative framework, Woodruff’s selections will be of special interest to instructors in political theory and Greek civilization. Includes maps, notes, glossary.

  22. On Law, Morality, and Politics (Second Edition)

    Thomas Aquinas
    Edited by William P. Baumgarth and Richard J. Regan, S. J.

    On Law, Morality, and Politics (Second Edition)

    The second edition of Aquinas, On Law, Morality, and Politics retains the selection of texts presented in the first edition but offers them in new translations by Richard J. Regan—including that of his Aquinas, Treatise on Law (Hackett, 2000). A revised Introduction and glossary, an updated select bibliography, and the inclusion of summarizing headnotes for each of the units—Conscience, Law, Justice, Property, War and Killing, Obedience and Rebellion, and Practical Wisdom and Statecraft—further enhance its usefulness.

  23. 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.

  24. On Poetry and Style

    Aristotle
    Translated by G. M. A. Grube

    On Poetry and Style

    Contains the Poetics and the first twelve chapters of the Rhetoric, Book III.

  25. On the Advantage and Disadvantage of History for Life
  26. 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

  27. On the Dignity of Man

    Pico Della Mirandola
    Translations by Charles Glenn Wallis, Paul J. W. Miller, and Douglas Carmichael
    Introduction by Paul J. W. Miller

    On the Dignity of Man

    Reflecting the broad range of interests of a major Renaissance philosopher and his distinctive brand of syncretism, this anthology offers in their entirety three central works of Pico’s. On the Dignity of Man, the quintessential expression of Renaissance humanism, appears in the context of two lesser known but equally representative mature works: On Being and the One, a treatise defending what Pico held to be the agreement between Aristotle and Plato on the relation between unity and being, and Heptaplus, an interpretation, influenced by a blend of cabalism and Christian doctrine, of the first verses of Genesis. New Selected Bibliography.

  28. 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

  29. On the Inner Life of the Mind

    Augustine
    Edited, with commentary, by Robert Meagher

    On the Inner Life of the Mind

    Both an anthology of Augustine’s writings and a commentary on them, this work features substantial selections from On the Trinity, Confessions, The City of God, and On Freedom of the Will, as well as selections from lesser known works—all brilliantly knit together and illuminated by philosopher Robert Meagher.

  30. On the Musically Beautiful

    Eduard Hanslick
    Translated, with Commentary, by Geoffrey Payzant

    On the Musically Beautiful

    "Like Hanslick, Professor Payzant is both musician and philosopher; and he has brought the knowledge and insights of both disciplines to this large undertaking."
         —Gordon Epperson, Journal of Aesthetics & Art Criticism

  31. On the Nature of Things (Englert Edition)

    Lucretius
    Translated by Walter Englert

    On the Nature of Things (Englert Edition)

    "Englert's translation of the poem is indeed accurate and readable. He knows the poem as thoroughly as he knows the scholarship that bears on it . . . an admirable translation, admirably supported by scholarly tools."
         —W.R. Johnson, University of Chicago

  32. On the Nature of Things (Smith Edition)

    Lucretius
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Martin Ferguson Smith

    On the Nature of Things (Smith Edition)

    "Martin Ferguson Smith has for many years been one of the leading Lucretian scholars in the world. . . . We should expect from the beginning then that we are in the hands of a wise and learned guide as soon as we open his Lucretius, and this expectation is certainly borne out by the quality of this sensitive and thoughtful edition. . . . The Introduction . . . is excellent. Smith outlines in a highly accessible manner what little is known of Lucretius' life and times, the poem's position and status in the Epic and Didactic tradition, and the philosophy of Epicurus that Lucretius puts forward, but also manages to include some of the most up to date research, including recent scholarship on the Herculaneum papyri. . . . But of course, the translation is the most important part of the work . . . [and] it is streets ahead of the competition. . . . I can recommend this book unreservedly."
         —Gordon Campbell, Hermathena

  33. On the Social Contract

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau
    Translated by Donald A. Cress

    On the Social Contract

    Contents include a note on the translation, introduction by Peter Gay, and a bibliography.

  34. Oresteia

    Aeschylus
    Translated, with Notes, by Peter Meineck
    Introduction by Helene P. Foley

    Oresteia

    “Peter Meineck’s new rendition of the Oresteia is that rare and wonderful thing: a text accessible to the Greekless audience while still preserving the vocabulary of Aeschylus. Those of us who have seen Peter Meineck's performances have long marveled at his ability to turn Greek into clear English, how he does not do ‘versions’ of the plays, how he does not rewrite the ancients into modern jargon (even his comedies maintain more Aristophanic text than is usual). Here lines that students have always needed explicated stand clear. . . . Helene Foley has provided a fine introduction for this translation. Introduction and translation together provide an exciting text, one that should be widely read, widely used.”
         —Karelisa Hartigan, University of Florida, in The Classical Outlook

  35. Other Selves

    Edited, with Introduction, by Michael Pakaluk

    Other Selves

    "Friendship, that pervasive, everyday, and subtle matter of our most intimate personal life, has rarely been accorded its due. Michael Pakaluk has retrieved the thoughts of our greatest thinkers on the subject and collected them into a handsome and handy volume. . . . A splendid book!"
         — M. M. Wartofsky, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Baruch College, City University of New York

  36. Outlines of the History of Ethics

    Henry Sidgwick

    Outlines of the History of Ethics

    “The work of a master in the subject, who in a few pregnant pages has sketched out skillfully and judicially the history of Greek, of medieval, and of English reflections on the aims and laws of human conduct.”
         —William Wallace (at time of first publication)

  37. Parmenides (Gill & Ryan Edition)

    Plato
    Translated by Mary Louise Gill and Paul Ryan
    Introduction by Mary Louise Gill

    Parmenides (Gill & Ryan Edition)

    “Gill’s and Ryan’s Parmenides is, simply, superb: the Introduction, more than a hundred pages long, is transparently clear, takes the reader meticulously through the arguments, avoids perverseness, and still manages to make sense of the dialogue as a whole; there is a fine selective bibliography; and those parts of the translation I have looked at in detail suggest that it too is very good indeed.”
         —Christopher Rowe, Phronesis

  38. Parmenides (Whitaker Edition)

    Plato
    Translated, with Introduction, by Albert Keith Whitaker

    Parmenides (Whitaker Edition)

    "Keith Whitaker's insightful introduction to this notoriously daunting text is valuable for its clarity and sobriety. The lucid interpretation will be of interest to those versed in the text and will be of great help to any who encounter the dialogue for the first time. The engaging translation humanizes the discourse without compromising its precision-a notable achievement that will earn the gratitude of readers."
         —Joseph Cropsey, University of Chicago

  39. 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.

  40. Perpetual Peace and Other Essays on Politics, History, and Morals

    Immanuel Kant
    Translated by Ted Humphrey

    Perpetual Peace and Other Essays on Politics, History, and Morals

    Includes an introduction, bibliography, a note on the text, glossary of some German-English translations, and an index.

  41. Persuasion: History, Theory, Practice

    George Pullman

    Persuasion: History, Theory, Practice

    George Pullman's lively and accessible introduction to the study of persuasion is an ideal text for use in courses where the understanding and practice of argumentation, rhetoric, and critical thinking are central.

  42. Phaedo (Brann, Kalkavage, & Salem Edition)

    Plato
    Translated, with Introduction and Glossary, by Eva Brann, Peter Kalkavage, and Eric Salem

    Phaedo (Brann, Kalkavage, & Salem Edition)

    "This marvelously conceived new translation of Plato's most important dialogue will set the standard for classroom use for many years to come. . . . The authors' imaginative new interpretation will inspire students and generate scholarly controversy-and is thus certain to accomplish what it suggests is the true aim of Socratic inquiry: the weaving, unweaving, and perpetual re-weaving of the Logos."
         —Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Professor of Philosophy, US Naval Academy, Annapolis

  43. Phaedo (Grube, Second Edition)

    Plato
    Translated by G. M. A. Grube

    Phaedo (Grube, Second Edition)

    “A first rate translation at a reasonable price.”
         —Michael Rohr, Rutgers University

  44. Phaedrus (Nehamas & Woodruff Edition)

    Plato
    Translated by Alexander Nehamas and Paul Woodruff

    Phaedrus (Nehamas & Woodruff Edition)

    "A superb translation that captures the rhetorical brilliance of the Greek. . . . The translation is faithful in the very best sense: it reflects both the meaning and the beauty of the Greek text. . . . The footnotes are always helpful, never obtrusive. A one-page outline is useful since there are no editorial additions to mark major divisions in the dialogue. An appendix containing fragments of early Greek love poetry helps the reader appreciate the rich, and perhaps elusive, meaning of eros. . . . The entire Introduction is crisply written, and the authors' erudition shines throughout, without a trace of pedantry. . . . this is an excellent book that deservedly should find wide circulation for many years to come."
         —Tim Mahoney, University of Texas at Arlington

  45. Phaedrus (Scully Edition)

    Plato
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Stephen Scully

    Phaedrus (Scully Edition)

    "This is a fine translation, both fluent and accurate. It captures the range of tonalities of the original in elegant English that is neither stiffly formal nor cheaply colloquial. . . . The supplementary matter is appropriate and useful. The introduction is crisp and clear, the interpretive essay illuminating. . . . Scully has done a sound and serious job of translating and annotating for the general reader. Above all, his translation is excellent in respect to style and clarity: really a pleasure to read."
         —David Konstan, Brown University

  46. Philebus

    Plato
    Translated by Dorothea Frede

    Philebus

    This translation by Dorothea Frede of Plato’s dialogue on the nature of pleasure and its relation to thought and knowledge achieves a high standard of readability and fidelity to the Greek text. The volume includes a cogent introduction, notes, and comprehensive bibliography by Frede.

  47. Philosopher-Kings

    C. D. C. Reeve

    Philosopher-Kings

    "Philosopher-Kings broke new ground on its first appearance by delivering to an audience accustomed to looking for flaws in Plato's thinking an interpretation of the Republic that celebrates the coherence of Plato's argument as it ramifies through every cranny of that controversial work. Reeve's book swiftly became a classic of Platonic scholarship and has never lost its grip. Its reissue by Hackett is a very welcome event."
         —G.R.F. Ferrari, University of California, Berkeley

  48. Philosophical and Theological Writings

    Franz Rosenzweig
    Translated and Edited, with Introduction, by Paul W. Franks and Michael L. Morgan

    Philosophical and Theological Writings

    This volume brings together Rosenzweig’s central essays on theology and philosophy, including two works available for the first time in English: the conclusion to Rosenzweig’s book Hegel and the State, and Rosenzweig’s famous letter to Rudolph Ehrenberg known as the “Urzelle of the Star of Redemption,” an essential work for understanding Rosenzweig, Weimar theology and philosophy, and German idealism and the existential reaction of the period. Additional selections are presented in new or revised translations. Introduction and notes by Franks and Morgan set Rosenzweig’s works in context and illuminate his role as one of the key thinkers of the period.

  49. Philosophical Essays and Correspondence
