Modern British philosophy by Bryan Magee( Book )
50 editions published between 1971 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 914 libraries worldwide
The dialogue, combining informality with elements of drama, has been a favored form with philosophers since Plato; it lays bare the discussion, argument, and criticism which are part of the very subject-matter of philosophy. In this book some of the most distinguished philosophers in present-day Britain carry on the best traditions of the form. A.J. Ayer, Karl Popper, Gilbert Ryle and Peter Strawson, in dialogue with Bryan Magee, give authoritative introductions to their own work, even to the extent of saying what they think has been wrong with it

On blindness : letters between Bryan Magee and Martin Milligan by Bryan Magee( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and French and held by 324 libraries worldwide
"On Blindness opens the eyes of the sighted to the world as experienced by the blind, offering a unique opportunity to explore the challenges, frustrations, joys - and extraordinary insights - experienced in the everyday business of discovering the world without sight. What difference does sight or its absence make to our ideas about the world? What begins as a philosophical exchange between the noted philosopher and broadcaster Bryan Magee and the late Martin Milligan, activist and philosopher blind almost from birth, develops into a personal and intense discussion of the implications of blindness. The debate is vigorous and often heated; sometimes contentious, it is always stimulating. In discussing the range of blind experience, from those born blind to those who become blind - including those who have to cope with the shock of gaining sight they had never before possessed - On Blindness argues strongly against the notion that blindness is a simple experience. In doing so, this extraordinary book casts new light on one of the most fundamental aspects of human experience."--Jacket
