  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. A Summary of Philosophy

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated and Edited, with Introduction and Glossary, by Richard J. Regan

    A Summary of Philosophy

    “Those who want to approach [the Summa Theologiae] in English cannot do better than study Regan’s volume. It will provide them with a solid and reliable basis from which to take their studies of Aquinas further. . . . Regan’s translations are always accurate. . . . And, in producing them, he has managed to deliver texts written in elegant, intelligible, and idiomatic English.”
        —Brian Davies, International Philosophical Quarterly

  3. A Tale of Two Melons

    Sarah Schneewind

    A Tale of Two Melons

    "Undergraduates will join specialists in enjoying this feast of melons. Schneewind's marvelous little book is at once a primer in some key aspects of China's traditional civilization and history, as well as a case study of an obscurely understood event that took place in 1372, in the reign of Taizu, founder of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). When two melons share a single stalk, and a local grower presents the anomaly to the emperor, the symbolism, the intentions of the giver, the reaction of the recipient, and the meaning of the whole act to observers and later commentators turn out to be anything but straightforward. Divergent interpretations began immediately, and continue to the present day."
         —John Dardess,  University of Kansas

  4. Analects

    Confucius
    Translated by Edward Slingerland

    Analects

    "Confucius taught that 'virtue is never solitary; it always has neighbors.' (4.25). Based on the best modern and traditional Chinese and Western scholarship, Edward Slingerland's exemplary new translation of the Analects—including selections from the traditional commentaries on each passage of the text—is a welcome edition. Contemporary readers will be enlightened as to what Confucius taught his disciples and will share the experience of being a neighbor to all the generations of students who have pondered the sometimes cryptic and enigmatic words of Confucius. Slingerland's use of commentary gives readers a fighting chance at understanding and appreciating this foundational Confucian classic."
         —John Berthrong, Boston University

  5. Apollodorus' Library and Hyginus' Fabulae

    Apollodorus & Hyginus
    Translated, with Introduction, by Stephen M. Trzaskoma & R. Scott Smith

    Apollodorus' Library and Hyginus' Fabulae

    "To refer to this volume as just a translation is misleading, because Smith and Trzaskoma have provided much more, most notably the best short introduction to ancient mythography—and these particular authors—available in English. . . . The translations themselves are clear and accurate.  [An] admirable volume.  Smith and Trzaskoma are to be commended."
         —Kris Fletcher, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

  6. Apologies

    Plato & Xenophon
    Translated, with Introduction and Glossary, by Mark Kremer

    Apologies

    "Kremer's is an attractive text because of its combination of simplicity and strong delivery, and this is true regarding his translation and his interpretive essay alike. He has striven for a scrupulous accuracy in his translation, and he has achieved this without sacrificing readability or neglecting the distinctive tone of Plato and Xenophon."
         —Norma Thompson, Yale University

  7. 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

  8. Augustine: Political Writings

    Augustine
    Translated by Michael W. Tkacz and Douglas Kries
    Introduction by Ernest L. Fortin

    Augustine: Political Writings

    "[This volume] offers one-stop access to the political ideas of a major pre-modern thinker. The translations are fresh, accurate, supple, and clear, and the notes and comments are helpful. Ernest Fortin's excellent Introduction sets the central text, the City of God, in historical perspective and outlines problems Augustine faced in trying to reconcile Christian faith with the legitimate demands of civic life."
         —Alan R. Perreiah, Teaching Philosophy

  9. 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.

    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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (Second Edition)

    David Hume
    Edited by Richard H. Popkin

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  21. Essays on the Moral Philosophy of Mengzi

    Edited, with Introduction, by Xiusheng Liu and Philip J. Ivanhoe

    Essays on the Moral Philosophy of Mengzi

    "It is difficult to do justice to the richness of all the essays in this short review. . . . [T]he exceptionally rigorous and inspiring scholarship offered by this collection has laid the groundwork for future inquiries, and anyone interested in Chinese thought will benefit greatly from engaging with the authors' enlightening and rewarding reconstructions of Mengzi's moral philosophy. This is a remarkable achievement, especially given the fact that the Mengzi is an exceedingly difficult text."
         —Yang Xiao, Journal of the American Academy of Religion

  22. Ethics

    Baruch Spinoza
    Translated by Samuel Shirley
    Edited by Seymour Feldman

    Ethics

    "Professor Shirley has provided a translation which is fluent, eminently readable, and responsive to current research into Spinoza's thought. Where a particular passage is difficult or obscure, Shirley never attempts to interpose himself between the reader and Spinoza, nor to side with one or another competing school of interpretation. This makes his translation not just an ideal introduction for the reader new to Spinoza, but also a trustworthy source of insight for the more advanced reader."
         —Lee C. Rice, Marquette University

  23. Ethics in the Confucian Tradition (Second Edition)

    Philip J. Ivanhoe

    Ethics in the Confucian Tradition (Second Edition)

    "This enlightening book is a comparative study of the moral and metaphysical theories of these two luminaries of the Confucian tradition. . . . Ivanhoe draws in masterful strokes the trajectory of the Confucian image of the sage, from the semi-divine creator heroes revered by Kongzi, to Mengzi's human exemplars of perfected self-cultivation, to Wang Yangming's concept of the innate sagehood of every human."
         —Rene Goldman, Pacific Affairs

  24. Faith, Myth, and Reason in Han China

    Michael Loewe

    Faith, Myth, and Reason in Han China

    In his classic study of the cultural history of Han China, Michael Loewe uses both archaeological discoveries and written records to sketch the conceptual background of various artifacts of the Han period, and shows how ancient Chinese thought is as much informed by mythology as it is dependent on reason.

    Edited and Translated, with an Introduction, by Wilt L. Idema

    Filial Piety and Its Divine Rewards

    Of the many ballads, tales, and plays extolling filial piety (xiao)—the foundational virtue of imperial China—none was more popular in that era than the legend of Dong Yong and his heavenly helpmate, Weaving Maiden. Continually revised and embellished over a millennium, the tale's popularity remains, finding new expression in Chinese film and opera in the twentieth century. The five versions of the legend presented here, alongside a selection of related texts, illustrate changing perceptions of xiao from the tenth century through the first part of the twentieth in a variety of genres. An appendix traces the development of the related legend of Weaving Maiden and Buffalo Boy from myth to folktale.

  26. Franz Rosenzweig

    Presented by Nahum N. Glatzer
    Foreword to the Third Edition by Paul Mendes-Flohr

    Franz Rosenzweig

    “Rosenzweig’s life combined a fabulous spiritual search, a profound engagement with philosophy as well as with Judaism, and enormous accomplishment in the face of overwhelming physical handicaps. His thought is both illuminated by and realized in his amazing life. Nahum Glatzer has brought both the life and the thought together in this marvelous collection. There is no better introduction to this seminal Jewish thinker.”

    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

  29. Greek Religion: A Sourcebook

    Valerie M. Warrior

    Greek Religion: A Sourcebook

    "Warrior's text fills a long-acknowledged void for teaching Ancient Religion. There is no real alternative. The best recommendation for her book comes from my students, who voted her Greek and Roman Sourcebooks their favorite texts in my Greek and Roman Religion course."
         —Randall M. Colaizzi, Ph.D., University of Massachusetts, Boston

  30. Homeric Hymns (Ruden Edition)

    Translated by Sarah Ruden
    Introduction and Notes by Sheila Murnaghan

    Homeric Hymns (Ruden Edition)

    "Sarah Ruden's translation is clear, lean, intelligent, and delightfully readable. The notes provide guidance without encumbering the text. This will be marvelous for classroom use, for reading aloud, or simply for reading for pleasure."
         —Pamela Gordon, Department of Classics, University of Kansas

  31. Images of Women in Chinese Thought and Culture

    Edited, with Introduction, by Robin Wang

    Images of Women in Chinese Thought and Culture

    This rich collection of writings—many translated especially for this volume and some available in English for the first time—provides a journey through the history of Chinese culture, tracing the Chinese understanding of women as elucidated in writings spanning more than two thousand years. From the earliest oracle bone inscriptions of the Pre-Qin period through the poems and stories of the Song Dynasty, these works shed light on Chinese images of women and their roles in society in terms of such topics as human nature, cosmology, gender, and virtue.

  32. Inferno (Lombardo Edition)

    Dante
    Translated by Stanley Lombardo
    Introduction by Steven Botterill
    Notes by Anthony Oldcorn

    Inferno (Lombardo Edition)

    "This new Inferno is very quickly going to become a favorite. The translation itself is unusually dynamic and returns to the poem a register of daily speech that increases clarity and energy. It never loses sight of the fact that the Inferno tells an intensely involving story. This volume also offers real help to the novice reader. The synopsis printed at the beginning of each canto; the detailed commentary on each canto, at the end of the book; and, most importantly, a really excellent Introduction—all these give the reader constant and multileveled guides to the journey."
         —F. Regina Psaki, The Giustina Family Professor of Italian Language and Literature, University of Oregon

  33. Inferno (Simone Edition)

    Dante
    Translated and Illustrated, with Notes and an Introductory Essay, by Tom Simone

    Inferno (Simone Edition)

    "Tom Simone's translation is simply superb. Of all the translations with which I am familiar, this is the one that is the most faithful to what's there in the Italian: no frills, no poetic sallies, no choosing a word because it brings the line closer to iambic pentameter—just unadulterated Dante with good old Anglo-Saxon words and in highly readable prose."
        —Peter Kalkavage, St. John's University

  34. Introduction to Classical Chinese Philosophy

    Bryan W. Van Norden

    Introduction to Classical Chinese Philosophy

     “This book is an introduction in the very best sense of the word. It provides the beginner with an accurate, sophisticated, yet accessible account, and offers new insights and challenging perspectives to those who have more specialized knowledge. Focusing on the period in Chinese philosophy that is surely most easily approachable and perhaps is most important, it ranges over of rich set of competing options. It also, with admirable self-consciousness, presents a number of daring attempts to relate those options to philosophical figures and movements from the West. I recommend it very highly.”
        —Lee H. Yearley, Walter Y. Evans-Wentz Professor, Religious Studies, Stanford University

  35. Jesuit Writings of the Early Modern Period

    Edited and Translated by John Patrick Donnelly, S. J.

    Jesuit Writings of the Early Modern Period

    "A first-rate piece of work, very useful both for undergraduate and graduate students.  Also of real interest for non-scholars, non-students, and people interested in Jesuits in general.  The introductions are especially valuable in situating the readings in context.  The Illustrations are well-chosen."
         —John W. Padberg, S. J., Director, The Institute of Jesuit Studies

  36. Mengzi

    Mengzi
    Translated, with Introduction, by Bryan W. Van Norden

    Mengzi

    "The Mengzi is one of the richest philosophical texts in classical Chinese philosophy, and Van Norden's translation is among the few that do it justice. His translation is further distinguished by its accessibility and is unique in including substantial selections from later commentaries. As such it is both an essential scholarly resource and a great introduction to Confucian thought."
         —Justin Tiwald, San Francisco State University

  37. Monologion and Proslogion

    Anselm
    Translated, with Introduction and Notes, by Thomas Williams

    Monologion and Proslogion

    New Foreword and Bibliography by Lloyd P. Gerson

         —Times Literary Supplement

    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

  40. 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

  41. 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

  42. 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.

  43. On the Inner Life of the Mind

    Augustine
    Edited, with commentary, by Robert Meagher

    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.

  44. 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

  45. 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.

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

    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.

  48. Political Treatise

    Baruch Spinoza
    Translated by Samuel Shirley
    Prefatory Essay by Douglas Den Uyl
    Introduction and Notes by Steven Barbone and Lee Rice

    Political Treatise

    The Political Treatise, Spinoza’s final work, is a largely theoretical inquiry into the fundamental principles of political philosophy. This edition offers an exceptional translation by Samuel Shirley and a prefatory essay by Douglas Den Uyl that discusses why the Political Treatise deserves the attention of contemporary scholars. Steven Barbone and Lee Rice provide ample notes, a substantial bibliography, complete indexes of names and terms, and a comprehensive general introduction, which considers the evolution of Spinoza’s political thought in the context of the political and intellectual turmoil of the times, the relationship between the Political Treatise and the Theological-Political Treatise, and the importance of the Political Treatise to a full understanding of Spinoza’s political philosophy.

    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

  50. Quest for Harmony

    William A. Young

    Quest for Harmony

    "Finally I have found a book that combines many of the aspects I like to see included in readings for a course in Native American religions. . . . This publication combines historical overview and geographical diversity in its presentation of four Native American traditions.  It includes the importance of the land, less well-known events and episodes in North American history, stereotyping, and contemporary problems and accomplishments."
         —Anine Singh-de Grood, Department of Religious Studies, Oklahoma State University
