Most widely held works by Edward Craig
Routledge encyclopedia of philosophy by Edward Craig( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Depth and breadth of coverage, clarity of presentation, impressive bibliographies, excellent use of cross references, and an extensive index combine to make this an impressive reference work. The contributors have addressed both current and past scholarship on world philosophy and religion and have produced a worthy successor to Macmillan's 1967 Encyclopedia of Philosophy. It will be read and understood by the educated public as well as scholars and will be a fine addition to academic and large public library reference collections."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection Sources Committee, RUSA, ALA
The mind of God and the works of man by Edward Craig( )

Philosophy : a very short introduction by Edward Craig( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How ought we to live? What really exists? How do we know?" "This lively and engaging book is the ideal introduction for anyone who has ever been puzzled by what philosophy is or what it is for." "Edward Craig argues that philosophy is not an activity from another planet: learning about it is just a matter of broadening and deepening what most of us do already. He shows that philosophy is no mere intellectual pastime: thinkers such as Plato, Buddhist writers, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume, Hegel, Darwin, Mill, and de Beauvoir were responding to real needs and events - much of their work shapes our lives today, and many of their concerns are still ours."--BOOK JACKET
Knowledge and the state of nature : an essay in conceptual synthesis by Edward Craig( Book )
33 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this illuminating study Craig argues that the standard practice of analyzing the concept of knowledge has radical defects--arbitrary restriction of the subject matter and risky theoretical presuppositions. He proposes a new approach similar to the "state-of-nature" method found in political theory, building the concept up from a hypothesis about its social function and the needs it fulfills. Shedding light on much that philosophers have written about knowledge, its analysis and the obstacles to its analysis, and the debate over skepticism, this compelling work will be of interest to students and scholars of epistemology and the philosophy of language
