Most widely held works by J. L Mackie
Problems from Locke by J. L Mackie( )

52 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 2,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mackie examines various philosophical problems raised in John Locke's 'An Essay Concerning Human Understanding'. He carefully considers Locke's treatment of these problems, but proposes his own resolution of the related issues in contemporary philosophy. He also proposes his theory of a realism combined with a moderate empiricism
Hume's moral theory by J. L Mackie( )

49 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hume's moral theory was the most important contribution to the sustained debate among the British Moralists of the 17th and 18th centuries. J.L. Mackie's classic text examines this debate and provides an excellent introduction to some of the main problems of moral philosophy

The miracle of theism : arguments for and against the existence of God by J. L Mackie( Book )

35 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Miracle of Theism, J.L. Mackie examines the arguments for and against the existence of God from an atheistic perspective. John Mackie is a highly respected twentieth century philosopher and along with Anthony Flew has been one of the most capable contemporary proponents of atheism. Written almost a quarter of a century ago, "The Miracle of Theism" remains a classic in the field of religious philosophy and is widely considered to be one of the best-stated arguments for atheism in print. Unfortunately, many popular works supporting the atheistic perspective come across as unduly angry and self-righteous. In contrast, Mackie's work is a much-needed breath of fresh air. One may disagree with Mackie while at the same time respecting his views
The cement of the universe : a study of causation by J. L Mackie( Book )

57 editions published between 1974 and 2004 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mackie makes a careful study of several philosophical issues involved in his account of causation. He follows Hume's distinction between causation as a concept and causation as it is 'in the objects' and attempts to provide an account of both aspects

The portable atheist : essential readings for the nonbeliever by Christopher Hitchens( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the mistaken use of the label "New Atheists," there is a lot of continuity over the past couple of centuries among atheist authors in their critiques of religion, theism, and superstition. Not every argument is identical, and even when the same basic argument is being offered there can be variety in how it is presented. This evolution of atheist critiques of supernatural religion is one of the virtues of Christopher Hitchens' book The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever. Well known for his own atheist book God Is Not Great, Hitchens treads some very heavily-traveled ground here in editing a compendium of atheist writings. Do we really need yet another book of essays, isolated chapters, and other selections from atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and skeptics of the past? What could we get out of this latest offering that we didn't get from the past half dozen that we bought - or the others that we simply skipped? Those are good questions, and reasons why I was skeptical of Hitchens' book, but in the end I think he succeeds in making his book more than "just one more" collection of atheist essays
