9780130976017: Philosophic Classics: Volume IV: Contemporary Philosophy (Philosophic Classics Vol. 4)

This anthology of readings in contemporary Western philosophy focuses on Nineteenth-century philosophers who represent a variety of different responses to the issue of the day--i.e., whether or not there was a knowable, nonhuman rational order upon which thinking persons could willfully choose to act. Striking a balance between major and minor figures, it features the best available translations of texts--complete works or complete selections of works--which are both central to each philosopher's thought and are widely accepted as part of the “canon.”  The selections are readable and accessible, while still being faithful to the original. Includes Introductions to each philosopher, and an abundance of drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline. KEY TOPICS: Jeremy Bentham. Johann Gottlieb Fichte. G.W.F. Hegel. Arthur Schopenhauer. Auguste Comte. Ludwig Feuerbach. John Stuart Mill. Soren Kierkegaard. Karl Marx. Charles Sanders Peirce. William James. Friedrich Nietzsche. MARKET: For anyone interested in 19th-century Philosophy or  Contemporary Philosophy.

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)
