Spanning 2,500 years of thought, Classics of Philosophy is the most comprehensive anthology of writings in western philosophy in print. It includes over seventy-five works by forty-two philosophers, as well as excerpts from the works of the Presocratics, offering readers an extensive and economical collection of the major works of the western tradition. The book contains the most important writings from Thales to John Rawls, twenty-four of which are complete works, while the others are judiciously abridged so that little of value to the reader is lost. It provides a view of the most significant stages of growth in the whole tradition of western philosophy, including its birth with the Presocratics and its contemporary developments, which are often omitted in similar books. The editor has written lucid introductions, including biographical sketches, to each of the philosophers featured. As well as this single volume edition, the work is available in two split volumes. Of these, Volume I: Ancient and Medieval covers philosophers from the Presocratics to William of Ockham. Volume II: Modern and Contemporary begins with Descartes and ends with Rawls.
