Since 1961, Philosophic Classics has provided a generation of students with an anthology of quality in the history of Western philosophy. Using complete works, or where appropriate, complete sections of works, this series allows the philosophers to speak directly to the reader. This series includes texts central to the thinker's philosophy, using the best available translations. Introductions to the readings are divided into three sections: Biographical - provides a glimpse into the life of the philosopher; Philosophical - presents a resume of the philosopher's thought; and Bibliographical - offers suggestions for further reading. In addition, drawings, photographs, and time lines help put the readings in context. In short, every effort has been made to help the reader understand the primary source materials.

Key Benefit: This book is an anthology of readings in contemporary Western philosophy.

It includes complete works, or where more appropriate, complete sections of works, and provides the best available translations that are readable while still being faithful to the original. There are three-part introductions: Biographical, a glimpse of the life of the philosophers. Philosophical, a résumé of the philosopher's thought. Bibliographical, suggestions for further reading. Includes drawings, diagrams, photographs, a timeline, and updated translations including many from the acclaimed Library of the Liberal Arts series.
