The modern democratic state by A. D Lindsay( Book )

The republic by Plato( Book )

43 editions published between 1908 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toward the end of the astonishing period of Athenian creativity that furnished Western civilization with the greater part of its intellectual, artistic, and political wealth, Plato wrote The Republic, his discussion of the nature and meaning of justice and of the ideal state and its ruler. All subsequent European thinking about these subjects owes its character, directly or indirectly, to this most famous (and most accessible) of the Platonic dialogues. Although he describes a society that looks to some like the ideal human community and to others like a totalitarian nightmare, in the course of his description Plato raises enduringly relevant questions about politics, art, education, and the general conduct of life
The essentials of democracy by A. D Lindsay( Book )

67 editions published between 1929 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes( Book )

55 editions published between 1914 and 1996 in English and German and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leviathan is both a magnificent literary achievement and the greatest work of political philosophy in the English language. Permanently challenging, it has found new applications and new refutations in every generation. Hobbes argues that human beings are first and foremost concerned with their own individual desires and fears. He shows that a conflict of each against every man can only be avoided by the adoption of a compact to enforce peace. The compact involves giving up some of our natural freedom to a sovereign power which will enforce the laws of peace on all citizens. Hobbes also analyses the subversive forces - religion, ambition, private conscience - that threaten to destroy the body politic, Leviathan itself, and return us to the state of war
The philosophy of Bergson by A. D Lindsay( Book )

27 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri-Louis Bergson (18 October 1859 ? 4 January 1941) was a major French philosopher, influential especially in the first half of the 20th century. Bergson convinced many thinkers that immediate experience and intuition are more significant than rationalism and science for understanding reality. Bergson rejected what he saw as the overly mechanistic predominant view of causality (as expressed in, say, finalism). He argued that we must allow space for free will to unfold in an autonomous and unpredictable fashion

In Capital, Karl Marx proposes that the motivating force of capitalism is the exploitation of labor, whose work is the ultimate source of surplus value and then profit. The employer is able to claim the right to profit due to owning the means of production, which are legally protected by the capitalist state, despite initially being acquired through plunder, conquest, and the activities of middle-men

The politics by Aristotle( Book )

5 editions published between 1912 and 1935 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style. The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times."--Publisher's description
