The concise encyclopedia of Western philosophy and philosophers by J. O Urmson ( Book )
117 editions published between 1960 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 3,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ever since its first appearance in 1960, this Concise Encyclopedia has been recognised as a classic, providing not only a guide to philosophy at its best, but some remarkable samples of it too. This new edition builds on the strengths of the first and brings it completely up to date, with entries on newly emerging philosophers and on themes as diverse as aesthetics, 'African philosophy', gender, translation and philosophy of mind. The Concise Encyclopedia offers a lively, readable, comprehensive and authoritative treatment of Western philosophy as a whole, incorporating articles by many leading philosophical authors. It serves not only as a convenient reference work, but also as an engaging introduction to philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

This text collects all Austin's published articles plus a new one, ch. 13, hitherto unpublished. The analysis of the ordinary language to clarify philosophical questions is the common element.

How to do things with words by J. L Austin ( Book )
86 editions published between 1962 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work sets out Austin's conclusions in the field to which he directed his main efforts for at least the last ten years of his life. Starting from an exhaustive examination of his already well-known distinction between performative utterances and statements, Austin here finally abandons that distinction, replacing it with a more general theory of 'illocutionary forces' of utterances which has important bearings on a wide variety of philosophical problems

On Aristotle's On the soul 1.1-2.4 by Simplicius ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Simplicius' On Aristotle's "On the Soul 1.1-2.4" is a major source for late Neoplatonist theories of thought and sense perception and offers considerable insight into an important area of Aristotelian philosophy. The present volume is the only English translation of the commentary and affords its readers the opportunity to consider the question of its disputed authorship. While most scholars attribute authorship of On Aristotle's "On the Soul 1.1-2.4" to Simplicius, some have judged it to be the work of Priscian, or of another philosopher. The commentary discusses the first half of On the Soul, which comprises Aristotle's survey of his predecessors' views, as well as his own account of the nature of the soul

On Aristotle's Physics 5 by Simplicius ( Book )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Simplicius, the greatest surviving ancient authority on Aristotle's Physics, lived in the sixth century A.D. He produced detailed commentaries on several of Aristotle's works. Those on the Physics, which alone come to over 1,300 pages in the original Greek, preserve a centuries-old tradition of ancient scholarship on Aristotle. In Physics Book 5 Aristotle lays down some of the principles of his dynamics and theory of change. What does not count as a change: change of relation? the flux of time? There is no change of change, yet acceleration is recognised. Aristotle defines 'continuous', 'contact', and 'next', and uses these definitions in discussing when we can claim that the same change or event is still going on
