  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. 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.

  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. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. The Battle over Free Will

    Erasmus & Luther
    Edited, with notes, by Clarence H. Miller
    Translated by Clarence H. Miller and Peter Macardle
    Introduction by James D. Tracy

    The Battle over Free Will

    This compilation of writings from Erasmus and Luther’s great debate—over free will and grace, and their respective efficacy for salvation—offers a fuller representation of the disputants’ main arguments than has ever been available in a single volume in English. Included are key, corresponding selections from not only Erasmus’ conciliatory A Discussion or Discourse concerning Free Will and Luther’s forceful and fully argued rebuttal, but—with the battle now joined—from Erasmus’ own forceful and fully argued rebuttal of Luther. Students of Reformation theology, Christian humanism, and sixteenth-century rhetoric will find here the key to a wider appreciation of one of early modern Christianity’s most illuminating and disputed controversies.

  19. The Essential Augustine
  20. The Grand Inquisitor

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

    The Grand Inquisitor

    "This collection gives us a sense of the depth of Dostoevsky's insights into human life and suffering and of his profound understanding of the tensions and dangers of modernity. Guignon's Introduction is a brilliant study that shows how profoundly the 'legend of the Grand Inquisitor' speaks to our day."
         —Charles Taylor, McGill University

  21. 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.

  22. The Treatise on Happiness • The Treatise on Human Acts

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated and Introduced by Thomas Williams; Commentary by Christina Van Dyke and Thomas Williams

    The Treatise on Happiness • The Treatise on Human Acts

    The fifth volume of The Hackett Aquinas, a series of central philosophical treatises of Aquinas in new, state-of-the-art translations accompanied by a thorough commentary on the text.

  23. The Treatise on Human Nature

    Thomas Aquinas
    Translated, with Introduction, Notes, and Commentary by Robert Pasnau

    The Treatise on Human Nature

    “Pasnau’s fine translation renders Aquinas’ Latin into contemporary English prose that avoids, as much as possible, scholastic as well as contemporary jargon. The translation is precise, but technical only when it has to be, and should give readers a very good sense for what Aquinas was trying to accomplish. The commentary will be exceptionally useful to readers at all levels. Those unfamiliar with Aquinas will find helpful introductions and guides, while even scholars will find useful hints and convincing corrections of time-honored mistakes.”
         —Jeffrey Hause, Creighton University

  24. 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

  25. Three Philosophical Dialogues

    Anselm
    Translated, with Introduction, and Notes, by Thomas Williams

    Three Philosophical Dialogues

    "An excellent job. Williams's translation remains faithful to the Latin text while simultaneously proving clear and readable. I'm confident that both the introduction and the translation itself will motivate further study."   
         —Christina Van Dyke, Calvin College

  26. Truth, Set of 3 Volumes

    Thomas Aquinas

    Truth, Set of 3 Volumes

    The Quaestiones Disputatae de Veritate constitutes Aquinas's most extended treatment of any single topic. Volume I (questions 1-9) discusses the nature of truth and divine and angelic intellects. Volume II (questions 10-20) deals with truth and human intellect. Volume III (questions 21-29) investigates the operation of the will.

  27. PNG

    Leo Tolstoy
    Translation by Aylmer Maude
    Introduction by Vincent Tomas

    What Is Art?

    Maude’s excellent translation of Tolstoy’s treatise on the emotionalist theory of art was the first unexpurgated version of the work to appear in any languages. More than ninety years later this work remains, as Vincent Tomas observed, “one of the most rigorous attacks on formalism and on the doctrine of art for art’s sake ever written.” Tomas’s Introduction makes this the edition of choice for students of aesthetics and anyone with philosophical interests.
