  1. Introducing Philosophy: God, Mind, World, and Logic - Out Now

    Written for any readers interested in better harnessing philosophy’s real value, this book covers a broad range of fundamental philosophical problems and certain intellectual techniques for addressing those problems. In Introducing Philosophy: God, Mind, World, and Logic, Neil Tennant helps any student in pursuit of a ‘big picture’ to think independently, question received dogma, and analyze problems incisively. It also connects philosophy to other areas of study at the university, enabling all students to employ the concepts and techniques of this millennia-old discipline throughout their college careers – and beyond.

  2. The Routledge Guidebook to Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks - Out Now

    Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks are one of the most important and original sources of modern political philosophy but the Prison Notebooks present great difficulties to the reader. Not originally intended for publication, their fragmentary character and their oftentimes cryptic language can mystify readers, leading to misinterpretation of the text. The Routledge Guidebook to Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks provides readers with the historical background, textual analysis and other relevant information needed for a greater understanding and appreciation of this classic text.

  1. January Book of the Month!

    Philosophy, Science, and History: A Guide and Reader

    Edited by Lydia Patton

    "This innovative anthology is a must for all those who have been puzzled and delighted at the crossroads of philosophy, history, and science. Rooted in the recent flourishing of scholarship in HOPOS (history of philosophy of science), this unique collection addresses many far-reaching questions concerning the nature and development of knowledge. The various general programmatic statements in the opening section of the book are enriched and sharpened by articles embodying the history of three specific philosophical–scientific debates. Lydia Patton has admirably shaped this collection into a lively resource to aid further research and debate, going well beyond providing a static repository of great works." - Hasok Chang, University of Cambridge

  2. The Conquest of Happiness: It’s a Classic for a reason

    Beat ‘Blue Monday’ with the Routledge Classic The Conquest of Happiness by Bertrand Russell

    Routledge Classics doesn’t stand still. In 2015 we are bringing you a Classic a Month to spotlight the pedigree of our list, along with an interview with an eminent thinker about why this is their favorite Routledge Classic. In January we are delighted to showcase The Conquest of Happiness and an interview with the philosopher A.C.Grayling, whose preface features in the Routledge Classic edition.

    The current interest in happiness studies shows no signs of abating, with academic studies into well-being and happiness research competing with a proliferation of self-help experts, books and resources to tell us with how we can attain and retain happiness in life. This is nothing new though, as Bertrand Russell demonstrated in his classic title The Conquest of Happiness. Russell encourages zest, a retreat from self-absorption and an interest in the world around us in order to strive to attain happiness. Pre-dating our current fascination with self-help books by decades; this is a true classic offering sage advice for a satisfying life, beyond the facile quick fixes of today.


    Is Russell’s The Conquest of Happiness still as relevant today? Read an extract What Makes People Unhappy? here, and our Q&A with philosopher A. C. Grayling below.

  1. High Praise for New Titles in the Routledge Philosophers Series

    Two of the latest titles in the Routledge Philosophers series are receiving high praise from academics around the world. Published in October, Hume by Don Garrett has been described as 'important and illuminating' by Paul Russell of the University of British Columbia and as 'an outstanding, incredibly stimulating book' by the University of Oxford's P.J.E. Kail.

    Published in November 2014, Steven Fesmire's Dewey is 'A crisply written, deftly argued introduction.' (Thomas Alexander, Southern Illinois University).

    Philip Kitcher of Columbia University says, 'Fesmire demonstrates the vital relevance of Dewey's ideas today, not only for philosophers but for anyone willing to think hard about the problems of our times. Lucid, informed, and admirably wide-ranging, this book is a superb introduction to the many-sided reflections of America's greatest philosopher.'

    Christopher Shields' Aristotle, 2nd Edition is Essential!

    "With this accessible, incisive overview, Shields will become for a new generation of undergraduate and graduate students what W. D. Ross or W. K. C. Guthrie were for previous generations of scholars - a lifeline of clarity in the sometimes murky seas of Aristotle's texts. …a fluid, contemporary analysis of Aristotle that remains lively through candid acknowledgement of textual puzzles and a lucid ordering in exposition. … Summing Up: Essential." - CHOICE, August 2014
