Esteemed for providing the best available translations, Philosophic Classics: From Plato to Derrida, features complete works or complete sections of the most important works by the major thinkers, as well as shorter samples from transitional thinkers.

First published in 1961, Forrest E. Baird's revision of Philosophic Classics, Pearson Education's long-standing anthology (available in split volumes), continues the tradition of providing generations of students with high quality course material. Using the complete works, or where appropriate, complete sections of works, this anthology allows philosophers to speak directly to students.

"Students with little or no background in philosophy would likely find it difficult if not impossible to comprehend the works of many of the philosophers addressed in each volume on their own. However, this text's informative introductions and careful selection of readings make it possible for students to get a foothold in their primary texts Students are afforded the opportunity to engage with the works of these illustrious but often inscrutable thinkers."-Jennifer McMahon, Centre College

"This collection is by far the best I have seen in this area and I certainly prefer having all of my material together in one text rather than having students purchase half a dozen books, which then still require supplementation. I cannot imagine a better format or selection of materials that would tempt me away from this collection for another."-Ted Toadvine, Emporia State University
