Most widely held works by Judy Groves
Introducing Wittgenstein by John M Heaton( )
24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ludwig Wittgenstein has captured the popular imagination as the modern Socrates, the fascinating master of enigmatic reasoning who, with his icy logic, convinced Bertrand Russell that there was a hippo in the room. He is an icon of modernism, but what did he really say?" "In Introducing Wittgenstein we meet a strange man, a rigorous logician who prized poetry above philosophy, who inherited a fortune and gave it away, who sought death in the trenches of the First World War, a great teacher who advised his students to give up philosophy, a solitary man who nonetheless inspired lifelong friendships. We are also given a clear and accessible guide to Wittgenstein's central work, the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, a glacier of logic, and his later, friendlier Philosophical Investigations. Here is an accessible introduction for anyone baffled by the complexity or intrigued by the reputation of this great 20th-century philosopher."--BOOK JACKET
Introducing Plato by Dave Robinson( Book )
20 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophers have always enjoyed asking awkward and provocative questions, such as: What is the nature of reality? What are human beings really like?

Introducing Bertrand Russell by David Robinson( )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introducing Bertrand Russell celebrates the life and work of a very extraordinary man. We meet a passionate eccentric, an aristocrat with socialist and pacifist beliefs, a deeply religious man who hated all organised religion, and an advocate of women's rights who married several times and had numerous affairs. His outspoken views on sex, marriage, religion and education scandalised many - and still can. Judy Groves splendidly illustrates this remarkable story

Introducing Lacan by Darian Leader( Book )
20 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Croatian and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jacques Lacan is now taking his place as a major psychoanalytical theorist alongside Freud, Jung and Klein. Darian Leader, a practising psychoanalyst and senior lecturer in psychoanalytic studies at England's Leeds University, clarifies the central ideas of Lacanian theory. He guides the reader through Lacan's early studies of paranoia, and on to his analytical innovations - including the incorporation of structural linguistics into Freudianism. For anyone intrigued by Lacan's ideas but discouraged by the apparent arcane quality of his writings, here is the ideal introduction

Introducing Lévi-Strauss and structural anthropology by Boris Wiseman( Book )
19 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Introducing Levi-Strauss' is a guide to the work of the great French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss (1908-2009). The book brilliantly traces the development and influence of Levi-Strauss' thought, from his early work on the function of the incest taboo to initiate an exchange of women between groups, to his identification of a timeless 'wild' or 'primitive' mode of thinking - a pensee sauvage - behind the processes of human culture. Accessibly written by Boris Wiseman and beautifully illustrated by Judy Groves, Introducing Levi-Strauss also explores the major contribution that Levi-Strauss made to contemporary aesthetic history - his work on American-Indian mythology provides a key insight into the way in which art itself comes into being. This is an essential introduction to a key thinker

12 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chomsky for beginners by John C Maher( Book )
5 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The epoch-making theories of linguist Noam Chomsky maintain that the human brain has an innate language faculty, and that part of this biological endowment is a "universal grammar", a theory of principles common to all languages. Thus, all human languages and the ways in which children learn them are similar." "Introducing Chomsky traces Chomsky's understanding of the cognitive recognition involved in the use of language, and the technical apparatus needed to represent it. The book also describes Chomsky's radical critique of the institutions of power and the pathways of oppression, and his commitment to freedom and justice."--BOOK JACKET
