  • Symposiumby Plato; Paul Woodruff; Alexander Nehamas

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1989; US$ 9.50

    A model of the kind of text one needs for lecture courses: the translation is extremely readable and made even more accessible by intelligent printing decisions (on dividing the text, spacing for clarification, etc.); the notes are kept to a minimum but appear when they are really needed for comprehension and are truly informative. And the introduction... more...

  • Phaedrusby Plato; Alexander Nehamas; Paul Woodruff

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1995; US$ 9.50

    "A superb translation that captures the rhetorical brilliance of the Greek. . . . The translation is faithful in the very best sense: it reflects both the meaning and the beauty of the Greek text. . . . The footnotes are always helpful, never obtrusive. A one-page outline is useful since there are no editorial additions to mark major divisions in... more...

  • Political Writingsby Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès; Michael Sonenscher

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2003; US$ 12.50

    The abbé Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès (1748-1836) expressed the essence of his thought in a series of three pamphlets published in the months leading up to the meeting of the Estates-General in 1789. This volume presents all three essays - Views of the Executive Means , An Essay on Privileges , and What Is the Third Estate? - in their entirety. more...

  • Walden Twoby B. F. Skinner

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2005; US$ 11.95

    A reprint of the 1976 Macmillan edition. This fictional outline of a modern utopia has been a center of controversy ever since its publication in 1948. Set in the United States, it pictures a society in which human problems are solved by a scientific technology of human conduct. more...

  • The People of Platoby Debra Nails

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2002; US$ 28.95

    The People of Plato is the first study since 1823 devoted exclusively to the identification of, and relationships among, the individuals represented in the complete Platonic corpus. It provides details of their lives, and it enables one to consider the persons of Plato's works, and those of other Socratics, within a nexus of important political,... more...

  • Iliadby Homer; Stanley Lombardo; Sheila Murnaghan

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1997; US$ 13.95

    Gripping. . . . Lombardo's achievement is all the more striking when you consider the difficulties of his task. . . . [He] manages to be respectful of Homer's dire spirit while providing on nearly every page some wonderfully fresh refashioning of his Greek. The result is a vivid and disarmingly hardbitten reworking of a great classic. --Daniel Mendelsohn,... more...

  • Leviathanby Thomas Hobbes; Edwin Curley

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1994; US$ 14.95

    Designed to meet the needs of both student and scholar, this edition of Leviathan offers a brilliant introduction by Edwin Curley, modernized spelling and punctuation of the text, and the inclusion, along with historical and interpretive notes, of the most significant variants between the English version of 1651 and the Latin version of 1668. A... more...

The Fourth Edition dramatically increases the... more...
