Karl Marx by Allen W Wood( Book )
40 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,419 libraries worldwide
Karl Marx explains Marx's views from a philosophical standpoint and defends Marx against common misunderstandings and criticisms of his views. This new edition includes a new chapter on exploitation and a substantial new preface
Toward perpetual peace and other writings on politics, peace, and history by Immanuel Kant( file )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,299 libraries worldwide
Groundwork for the metaphysics of morals by Immanuel Kant( file )
9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,211 libraries worldwide
"In this text, Kant sets out to articulate and defend the Categorical Imperative - the fundamental principle that underlies human moral reasoning - and to lay out the foundation for a comprehensive account of justice and human virtues. Here, Kant explains his conception of a good will and the special value he calls 'moral worth', analyses the difference between moral and non-moral reasons, and presents alternative formulations of the Categorical Imperative. Here too he argues that the moral beliefs presuppose "autonomy of the will" and that they are not based on an illusion."
Kant's moral religion by Allen W Wood( Book )
19 editions published between 1968 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 958 libraries worldwide
Kant's philosophical thought about religious faith has frequently been treated as a weak point in his philosophy. Even Kant's more ardent admirers have often felt it necessary to to reject and to apologize for his "moral arguments" in favor of belief in God and immortality, to admit that these arguments are beneath the high standards of the critical philosophy, and even to claim that they are incompatible with the fundamental principles of Kant's philosophy itself. The present study was undertaken in the conviction that this common estimate of Kant's doctrine of moral faith is altogether wrong. I have attempted to show not only that Kant's doctrine of moral faith is consistent with his best critical thinking, but also that a full understanding of this doctrine is necessary for any genuine appreciation of the outlook of the critical philosophy as a whole
Lectures on philosophical theology by Immanuel Kant( Book )
6 editions published between 1978 and 1991 in English and held by 888 libraries worldwide
Kant's rational theology by Allen W Wood( Book )
13 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 830 libraries worldwide
This book was conceived while I was working on a translation of Immanuel Kant's Lectures on Philosophical Theology. It began as a critical essay to be included in that volume, an essay of that sort that translators commonly inflict on the reader as their price for undertaking the important but thankless task of making a valuable piece of writing available to those who cannot read it or haven't the time to struggle through it in the original language. But in the course of its composition, the critical essay grew into a little book on its own right, which it now seems best to publish separately
Kant by Allen W Wood( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 775 libraries worldwide
"This survey takes readers on a thought provoking tour through the life and work of Immanuel Kant. The book provides expositions of Kant's key works, especially his Critique of Pure Reason, and represents the broad range of his philosophical thought, including his contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, the philosophy of science, the philosophy of history, moral philosophy, aesthetics, politics, and the philosophy of religion."--Jacket
The critique of pure reason by Immanuel Kant( Book )
23 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 772 libraries worldwide
The most accurate and informative English translation of Kant's most important philosophical work in both the 1781 and 1787 editions; faithful rendering of Kant's terminology, syntax, and sentence structure; a simple and direct style suitable for readers at all levels; distinct versions of all those portions of the work substantially revised by Kant for the 1787 edition; all Kant's handwritten emendations and marginal notes from his own personal copy reproduced for the first time in any edition, German or English; a large-scale introduction providing a summary of the structure and arguments of the Critique as well as the most informative account available in English of its long and complex genesis; and an extensive editorial apparatus including informative annotation and glossaries
Hegel's ethical thought by Allen W Wood( Book )
21 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 731 libraries worldwide
This important new study offers a powerful exposition of the ethical theory underlying Hegel's philosophy of society, politics, and history. Professor Wood shows how Hegel applies his theory to such topics as human rights, the justification of legal punishment, criteria of moral responsibility, and the authority of individual conscience. The book includes a critical discussion of Hegel's treatment of other moral philosophers (especially Kant, Fichte and Fries), provides an account of the controversial concept of "ethical life," and shows the relation between the theory and Hegel's critical assessment of modern social institutions. The book is nontechnical and should interest anyone concerned with Hegel's ethical and political thought, including philosophers, political scientists, intellectual historians and students of German culture
Religion and rational theology by Immanuel Kant( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 726 libraries worldwide

Kant's ethical thought by Allen W Wood( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 723 libraries worldwide
"This is a major new study of Kant's ethics that will transform the way students and scholars approach the subject in the future." "Allen Wood argues that Kant's ethical vision is grounded in the idea of the dignity of the rational nature of every human being. Undergoing both natural competitiveness and social antagonism, the human species, according to Kant, develops the rational capacity to struggle against its impulses, toward a human community in which the ends of all are to harmonize and coincide." "This comprehensive study will be of critical importance to students of moral philosophy, the history of ideas, political theory, and religious studies."--Jacket
Elements of the philosophy of right by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel( Book )
16 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 635 libraries worldwide
This book is a translation of a classic work of modern social and political thought. Elements of the Philosophy of Right, Hegel's last major published work, is an attempt to systematize ethical theory, natural right, the philosophy of law, political theory, and the sociology of the modern state into the framework of Hegel's philosophy of history. Hegel's work has been interpreted in radically different ways, influencing many political movements from far right to far left, and is widely perceived as central to the communitarian tradition in modern ethical, social, and political thought. This edition includes extensive editorial material informing the reader of the historical background of Hegel's text, and explaining his allusions to Roman law and other sources, making use of lecture materials which have only recently become available. The new translation is literal, readable, and consistent, and will be informative and scholarly enough to serve the needs of students and specialists alike
Kantian ethics by Allen W Wood( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 584 libraries worldwide
"In this book, Allen W. Wood investigates Kant's conception of ethical theory, using it to develop a viable approach to the rights and moral duties of human beings. By remaining closer to Kant's own view of the aims of ethics, Wood's understanding of Kantian ethics differs from the received "constructivist" interpretation, especially on such matters as the ground and function of ethical principles, the nature of ethical reasoning, and autonomy as the ground of ethics. Wood does not hesitate to criticize and modify Kant's conclusions when they seem inconsistent with his basic principles or fail to make the best use of the resources that Kantian principles make available. Of special interest are the book's treatment of such topics as freedom of the will, the state's role in securing economic justice, sexual morality, the justification of punishment, and the prohibition on lying."--Jacket
Self and nature in Kant's philosophy ( Book )
5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
Religion within the boundaries of mere reason and other writings by Immanuel Kant( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 488 libraries worldwide
Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason is a key element of the system of philosophy which Kant introduced with his Critique of Pure Reason, and a work of major importance in the history of Western religious thought. It represents a great philosopher's attempt to spell out the form and content of a type of religion that would be grounded in moral reason and would meet the needs of ethical life. It includes sharply critical and boldly constructive discussions on topics not often treated by philosophers, including such traditional theological concepts as original sin and the salvation or 'justification' of a sinner, and the idea of the proper role of a church. This volume presents it and three short essays that illuminate it in new translations by Allen Wood and George di Giovanni, with an introduction by Robert Merrihew Adams that locates it in its historical and philosophical context. -- Back cover

The Cambridge history of philosophy in the nineteenth century (1790-1870) ( Book )

"The latest volume in the Cambridge Histories of Philosophy series, The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century brings together twenty-nine leading experts in the field and covers the years 1790-1870. Their twenty-seven chapters provide a comprehensive survey of the period, organizing the material topically. After a brief editor's introduction, it begins with three chapters surveying the background of nineteenth century philosophy: followed by two on logic and mathematics, two on nature and natural science, five on mind and language, including psychology, the human sciences and aesthetics, four on ethics, three on religion, seven on society, including chapters on the French Revolution, the decline of natural right, political economy, and social discontent, and three on history, dealing with historical method, speculative theories of history and the history of philosophy. The essays are framed by an editor's introduction and a bibliography"--
Lectures on anthropology by Immanuel Kant( Book )
10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"Kant was one of the inventors of anthropology, and his lectures on anthropology were the most popular and among the most frequently given of his lecture courses. This volume contains the first translation of selections from student transcriptions of the lectures between 1772 and 1789, prior to the published version, Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View (1798), which Kant edited himself at the end of his teaching career. The two most extensive texts, Anthropology Friedländer (1772) and Anthropology Mrongovius (1786), are presented here in their entirety, along with selections from all the other lecture transcriptions published in the Academy edition, together with sizeable portions of the Menschenkunde (1781-1782), first published in 1831. These lectures show that Kant had a coherent and well-developed empirical theory of human nature bearing on many other aspects of his philosophy, including cognition, moral psychology, politics and philosophy of history"--
Attempt at a critique of all revelation by Johann Gottlieb Fichte( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"The Attempt at a Critique of All Revelation (1792) was the first published work of Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814), the founder of the German idealist movement in philosophy. It predated the system of philosophy which Fichte developed during his years in Jena, and for that reason - and possibly also because of its religious orientation - later commentators have tended to overlook the work in their treatments of Fichte's philosophy. It is, however, already representative of the most interesting aspects of Fichte's thought. It displays an affinity with his later moral psychology, introduces (in theological form) Fichte's distinctively 'second-person' conception of moral requirements, and employs the 'synthetic method' which is crucial to the transcendental systems Fichte developed during his Jena period. This volume offers a clear and accessible translation of the work by Garrett Green, while an introduction by Allen Wood sets the work in its historical and philosophical contexts."--BOOK JACKET
