Product description

Review

'The challenge is to convey to the modern reader the perennial freshness of ideas which might otherwise be clouded by historical scholarship. Nigel Warburton rises to the challenge with admirable skill.' – The Times

Synopsis

One of the best-selling authors of his generation, Nigel Warburton has written extensively in the field of philosophy to great acclaim. As such, A Level students as well as anyone with an interest in philosophy would be well advised to obtain a copy of his "Philosophy: The Classics", now in its third edition. In his exemplary clear style, Warburton introduces and assesses twenty-seven philosophical classics from Plato's "Republic" to Rawls' "A Theory of Justice". The new text design and revised further reading make this the ideal book for all students, while three new chapters on Nietzsche's "Beyond Good and Evil", Russell's "The Problems of Philosophy" and Sartre's "Existentialism and Humanism" mean that all the A Level set texts are covered. This brisk and invigorating tour through the great books of western philosophy explores the works of Plato, Aristotle, Boethius, Machiavelli, Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, Hume, Rousseau, Kant, Schopenhauer, Mill, Kierkegaard, Marx and Engels, Nietzsche, Russell, Ayer, Sartre, Wittgenstein, and Rawls.

Offering twenty-five guidebooks for the price of one, it's the most comprehensive introduction to philosophers and their texts currently available.
