Start by marking Classics of Moral and Political Theory as Want to Read . It would probably be healthy if I should learn more about political philosophy, ethics and that sort of stuff.

Start by marking Classics of Moral and Political Theory as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. I've avoided it for an embarrassingly long time now, mostly due to an irrational 'fear of arguing' (of course it's silly since I'm studying philosophy and it's all arguing anyway). Maybe it's more deeply rooted than that, iderno.

The 4th edition of Classics of Moral and Political Theory widens the breadth, depth, and appeal of this collection by featuring Paul Woodruff's translation of Sophocles' Antigone, Rodney Livingstone's translation of Weber's "Politics as a Vocation," and selections from Mill's The Subjection of Women; in addition C.D.C. Reeve's new translations of Plato's Republic (rendered into direct dialogue), Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, and the death scene from the Phaedo replace the translations of these works currently in use.


Make no mistake, this is a beginner's book, but it is an excellent one at that. It collects pieces from the most influential political philosophers from Plato down to Nietzsche; while not all of the pieces are complete (i.e. they are portions from the work) many are.

If you are just starting with philosophy in general this is a good starting point; if you are more involved but not familiar with some of the philosophers included in this book then it would be more than worth it to pick up a copy of this book. Some of those thinkers included in this book have multiple entries, so you stand a good chance at getting a good glimpse of them through this book before you move on to their other works. And best of all, because this book includes so many different works you can just buy this one and not have to buy separate volume upon separate volume of other works. The footnotes tend to be a bit scarce, but it is a small price to pay.

Hard to read, but great book
Great book condition for the price I paid. I really love the book, totally readable. I look forward to future purchases.
i was really glad to find this book at a much lower price at Amazon. it is required reading - but I haven't had to do any reading just yet, as classes have only begun recently. My copy was used and a little beat up but better than i expected. Thanks.
I ordered this book online for a class since it saved me about $20 than waiting to pay for it at the bookstore. It came within a week, was packaged well, great condition, fast and easy. Would do business again.
I have received the book via international shipment on time and in good condition as it was promissed.
