Now in its fourth edition, Philosophy: The Classics is a brisk and invigorating tour through the great books of western philosophy. In his exemplary clear style, Nigel Warburton introduces and assesses thirty-two philosophical classics from Plato’s Republic to Rawls’ A Theory of Justice. The fourth edition includes new material on:
Thomas Paine Rights of Man
R.G. Collingwood The Principles of Art
Karl Popper The Open Society and Its Enemies
Thomas Kuhn The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
With a glossary and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter, this is an ideal starting point for anyone interested in philosophy.
