The second edition of this best-seller includes four entirely new chapters on classics by Boethius, Machiavelli, Spinoza and Rawls. In his inimitable style, Nigel Warburton takes us on a guided tour through philosophy's greatest works, from Plato's Republic to Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. Each chapter explores a key classic text, identifying and explaining core themes as well as subjecting them to critical scrutiny.
These classic texts deal with problems that are as important today as when they were written, and Philosophy: The Classics offers an accessible introduction for all those who hesitated to approach them - until now.
