Most widely held works by Peter Heath
Theoretical philosophy after 1781 by Immanuel Kant( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, originally published in 2002, assembles the historical sequence of writings that Kant published between 1783 and 1796 to popularize, summarize, amplify and defend the doctrines of his masterpiece, the Critique of Pure Reason of 1781. The best known of them, the Prolegomena, is often recommended to beginning students, but the other texts are also vintage Kant and are important sources for a fully rounded picture of Kant's intellectual development. As with other volumes in the series there are copious linguistic notes and a glossary of key terms. The editorial introductions and explanatory notes shed light on the critical reception accorded Kant by the metaphysicians of his day and on Kant's own efforts to derail his opponents
Science of knowledge (Wissenschaftslehre) with the First and Second introductions by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )

20 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fichte's philosophy was pivotal in the development of nineteenth-century German idealism from Kant's critical philosophy. Fichte believed that Kant had posed the one fundamental question of philosophy: how is our experience of the world, as spatio-temporal and law-governed, possible? The answer he works out here is one of the most uncomprimising forms of philosophical idealism. The isolated absolute self is presented as the sole source from which the forms of human knowledge can be dialectically deduced. In the 1974 version of Wissenschaftslehre is Fichte's best known philosophical work; and the two Introductions which Fichte added later throw a helpful light on the system. This, the only modern and reliable translation, was first published in America in 1970, and is now made available again, with corrections, for all those with an interest in Fichte and in German Idealism
Lectures on ethics by Immanuel Kant( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains four versions of the lecture notes taken by Kant's students in his university courses in ethics given regularly over a period of some thirty years. The notes are very comprehensive and expound not only Kant's views on ethics but many of his opinions on life and human nature as well"--Page 4 of cover

The philosopher's Alice; Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking-glass by Peter Heath( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1983 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Heath's insightful annotations prove that the central concern of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass' is with the bounds of sense and the limitation of reason. Heath takes the reader on a fascinating walk through the thickets of philosophical blunders, logical fallacies, conceptual confusions and linguistic breakthroughs that decorate the landscape of Alice's world. As a result, Lewis Carroll is elevated to a place alongside such eminent philosophers as Bertrand Russell and Wittgenstein

Essays in legal and moral philosophy by Hans Kelsen( Book )

5 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his choice of texts, the Editor has been faced with the difficult task of selecting, from among the author's more than 600 publications, those of the greatest philosophical interest. It is chiefly the topics of value-rela tivism and the logic of norms that have been kept in view. The selection has also been guided by the endeavour to reprint, so far as possible, texts which have not hitherto appeared in English. At times, however, this aim has had to be discarded, in order to include works of key im portance and also the latest expressions of Kelsen's view. In addition to the two topics already mentioned, the Editor has con sidered Kelsen's discussions of the causal principle to be so far worthy of philosophical attention, that some writings on causality and account ability have been included in this collection of philosophical studies. OTA WEINBERGER Hans Kelsen died on April 19th, 1973. Only his work now lives, for the inspiration of future generations of jurists and philosophers. Graz, 25th April, 1973 OT A WEINBERGER TRANSLATOR'S NOTE I am obliged to the Editor for his careful scrutiny of the translation, which has led to a number of corrections and improvements in the text
