From the Back Cover:

Forrest Baird's revisions of Philosophic Classics, Prentice Hall's long-standing philosophy series, continue the tradition begun in 1961, to provide generations of students with anthologies of high quality in the history of Western philosophy. Using the complete works or, where appropriate, complete sections of works, this series allows philosophers to speak directly to students.

This series includes texts central to the thinker's own philosophy, using the best available translations. Introductions to each reading are divided into three sections:

  • Biographical – Provides a glimpse into the life of the philosopher;
  • Philosophical – Presents a résumé of the philosopher's thought; and
  • Bibliographical – Offers suggestions for further reading.

In addition, drawings, photographs, and time lines help put the readings into context. In short, every effort has been made to help the reader understand primary source materials.

  • Volume I: Ancient Philosophy Fourth Edition, c2003 (0-13-048556-X)
  • Volume II: Medieval Philosophy, Fourth Edition, c2003 (0-13-048557-8)
