Major Works of Philosophy

With these important works of philosophy that span more than 2,000 years of revolutionary thought, we’ve compiled a collection both accessible for readers new to the subject and thorough enough to satisfy scholars. Beautiful, heirloom-quality Everyman’s Library volumes are finished with our custom jackets, which feature Raphael’s Italian Renaissance masterpiece, “The School of Athens”. In the center of the painting, Plato gestures toward the heavens; Aristotle, walking next to him, points down to Earth. First-time readers and re-visitors alike will find a lifetime of inspiration and ideas from these formative books.
