Prolegomena to any future metaphysics that will be able to come forward as science : the Paul Carus translation by Immanuel Kant( Book )

87 editions published between 1902 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kant is the central figure of modern philosophy. He sought to rebuild philosophy from the ground up, and he succeeded in permanently changing its problems and methods. This new, revised edition of the Prolegomena, which is the best introduction to the theoretical side of his philosophy, presents his thought clearly by paying careful attention to his original language. Also included are selections from the Critique of Pure Reason, which fill out and explicate some of Kant's central arguments (including famous sections of the Schematism and Analogies), and in which Kant himself explains his special terminology. The first reviews of the Critique, to which Kant responded in the Prolegomena, are included in this revised edition. The volume is completed by a historical and philosophical introduction, explanatory notes, a chronology and a guide to further reading."--Jacket

Long before Joseph Campbell, and much more perceptively, the outstanding philosopher of Monism, Paul Carus (1852-1919), saw the need to reach past literal myths and religious symbols to uncover their true meaning, by assembling examples of the myths and religious imagery from all ages and cultures and deducing their common element. Carus's great work, The History of the Devil and the Idea of Evil, is here reproduced exactly as first published in 1900. New readers continue to find in Carus's extraordinary treatise an amazing wealth of provocative suggestions and remarkable insights
Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

34 editions published between 1898 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a completely fresh and poetic version of the twenty-five-hundred-year-old Chinese spiritual classic, by one of America's most thought-provoking writers. Moved by a lifelong love for the Tao Te Ching, the novelist and poet Ursula K. Le Guin has been working on this version of the text since the 1950s. Scholar J.P. Seaton has added expert linguistic guidance to her work, bringing to it an equally passionate commitment to scholarly accuracy. Together they have created a translation that is unlike any seen before. Le Guin's version captures all the brilliance of Lao Tzu's poetry while conveying with immediacy and clarity the astonishing depth of his spiritual insights. It also corrects many of the distorted views of Lao Tzu's philosophy, freeing it from gender-bias and revealing its universal relevance. This new version is sure to be welcomed by the many readers of the Tao Te Ching, as well as those coming to the text for the first time
