  • The Great Philosophers: Hegelby Raymond Plant

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Part of the GREAT PHILOSOPHERS series. G.W.F. Hegel 1770-1831 Without Hegel, modern thought is unthinkable. From Marx to Merleau-Pontyh, from Kierkegaard to Nietzsche, those whose ideas have made the modern age have all worked in his shadow. For Hegel's preoccupations have turned out to be our own. The isolation of the individual adrift in society,... more...

  • The Great Philosophers:Berkeleyby David Berman

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Part of the GREAT PHILOSOPHERS series. George Berkeley 1685-1753 A scientist, theologian and writer on medicine and economics, George Berkeley was in his way a most improbable philosopher. A master of English prose, he was suspicious of language; scornful of abstractions, he looked instead to immediate experience for the basis of his thought.... more...

  • The Great Philosophers: Spinozaby Roger Scruton

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Born to be misunderstood, Spinoza was a man whose theology was banned for Godlessness. The very virtuosity of his reasoning left logicians unsettled, while even to professional thinkers in our own time, Spinoza has seemed too clever by half. And yet, as Roger Scruton shows in this strikingly readable introduction to the man and... more...

  • The Great Philosophers: Popperby Frederic Raphael

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Karl Popper 1902-1994The political history of the twentieth century has been full of savage ‘certainties’. A similar idea of history warranted the callous savageries of both Marxism and Fascism. They shared a faith in what Karl Popper called ‘Historicism’: the belief that the future could be predicted and that man had to align himself with its bloody... more...

  • The Great Philosophers: Socratesby Anthony Gottlieb

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Socrates 469 – 399BC‘If you put me to death,’ Socrates warned his Athenian judges, ‘you will not easily find anyone to take my place.’ So indeed it would prove, a single cup of hemlock robbing the western philosophical tradition of the man with best claims to be its founding father.Yet Socrates’ influence was not so easily to be done away with. His... more...

  • The Great Philosophers:Aristotleby Kenneth Mcleish

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Aristotle c. 384- c.322 BCThe ideas Aristotle outlined in his Poetics have formed the foundation for the whole history of western critical theory. No work has had more influence upon the literature of centuries – neither has any been so profoundly, so perversely misunderstood.Mystification, moralization, recruitment into the cause of this or that literary... more...

  • The Great Philosophers:Pascalby Ben Rogers

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Pascal 1623-1662The moralist who advocated dressing up, the ascetic who liked a flutter, the devout Christian who lauded vanity, Pascal is a funnier, more ironic philosopher than his reputation as an anguished existentialist would suggest.Yet however irreverent the terms of his ironic project, its underlying impetus is both serious and profound. In... more...

  • The Great Philosophers:Kantby Ralph Walker

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Immanuel Kant 1724-1804‘Dry, obscure… prolix.’ That was Kant’s own critique of his first Critique – and exasperated students since have extended it to the rest of his work. Yet despite its sprawling form and forbidding content, Kant’s moral philosophy has continued to compel the attention of every serious thinker in the field.Today, indeed, it seems... more...

  • The Great Philosophers:Derridaby Christopher Johnson

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Part of the GREAT PHILOSOPHERS series. Jacques Derrida 1930-2004 As critics investigate the 'death of the author', they find Derrida's prints all over the murder weapon. No other recent philosopher has aroused so much suspicion - or been so badly misrepresented. His every idea a tug at the rug beneath us, questioning our sense of ourselves, our... more...

  • The Great Philosophers: Voltaireby John Gray

    Orion 2011; US$ 2.99

    Part of the GREAT PHILOSOPHERS series. Voltaire's savage laughter range out across eighteenth-century Europe, puncturing the pomposities and hypocrisies of power. Kings and cardinals felt the sting of his satire; governments and aristocracies endured his derision. Yet the aims of the Enlightenment's clown were nothing if not serious: to throw... more...
