Hegel's philosophy of freedom by Paul Franco( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 2,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human freedom is the central theme of modern political philosophy, and G.W.F. Hegel offers perhaps the most profound and systematic modern attempt to understand the state as the realization of human freedom. In this comprehensive examination of Hegel's philosophy of freedom, Paul Franco traces the development of Hegel's ideas of freedom, situates them within his general philosophical system, and relates them to the larger tradition of modern political philosophy. Franco then applies Hegel's understanding of liberty to certain problems in contemporary political theory."--Jacket

Nietzsche's enlightenment : the free-spirit trilogy of the middle period by Paul Franco( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While much attention has been lavished on Friedrich Nietzsche's earlier and later works, those of his so-called middle period have been generally neglected, perhaps because of their aphoristic style or perhaps because they are perceived to be inconsistent with the rest of his thought. With Nietzsche's Enlightenment, Paul Franco gives this crucial section of Nietzsche's oeuvre its due, offering a thoughtful analysis of the three works that make up the philosopher's middle period: Human, All too Human; Daybreak; and The Gay Science

Michael Oakeshott : an introduction by Paul Franco( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Paul Franco provides an authoritative introduction to the life and thought of Michael Oakeshott, one of the most important philosophical voices of the twentieth century. After sketching a brief biography of Oakeshott, Franco examines his most distinctive ideas, including his early idealist theory of knowledge, his influential critique of rationalism and central social planning, and his liberal theory of civil association. The author argues that Oakeshott makes important contributions both to conservatism and to liberal theory, and he compares Oakeshott with such other contemporary thinkers as Hayek, Strauss, Berlin, Rawls, and Rorty."
