The republic by Plato( Book )

38 editions published between 1908 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 751 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

39 editions published between 1914 and 1970 in English and German and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosophy of Bergson by A. D Lindsay( Book )

26 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 643 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

Karl Marx's Capital: an introductory essay by A. D Lindsay( Book )

36 editions published between 1925 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

7 editions published between 1912 and 2010 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle provided many brilliant insights into the political thinking, strategy, of leaders and the military. In many ways, it remains unsurpassed and it ought to be required reading in undergraduate classes on political strategy. Aristotle referred to leaders of each city-state over decades, if not centuries. Brilliant and merits an A+. -- From back cover
The critique of pure reason by Immanuel Kant( Book )

13 editions published between 1945 and 1984 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why this critique is called simply Critique of Practical Reason and not Critique of Pure Practical Reason, though the parallelism between it and the critique of speculative reason seems to demand the latter title, will be sufficiently shown in the treatise itself. Its task is merely to show that there is a pure practical reason, and, in order to do this, it critically examines reason's entire practical faculty. If it succeeds in this task, there is no need to examine the pure faculty itself to see whether it, like speculative reason, presumptuously overreaches itself. For if pure reason is actually practical, it will show its reality and that of its concepts in actions, and all disputations which aim to prove its impossibility will be in vain
The Background and issues of the war by H. A. L Fisher( Book )

5 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
