    Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 26.34

    Why are some parts of the world so rich and others so poor?

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 29.98

    Freud began university intending to study both medicine and philosophy.

  • Truth and Truthfulnessby Bernard Williams

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 36.35

    What does it mean to be truthful? What role does truth play in our lives? What do we lose if we reject truthfulness?

  • Ancient Religions, Modern Politicsby Michael Cook

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 27.25
