After Virtue, Third Edition

Author: Alasdair MacIntyre

American Philosophy

Author: John Kaag

Reader: Josh Bloomberg

Format: 7 CDs (Unabridged)

The epic wisdom contained in a lost library helps the author turn his life around. Kaag, a disillusioned philosopher at sea in his marriage and career, stumbles upon a treasure trove of rare books on an old estate in the hinterlands of NewHampshire that once belonged to the Harvard philosopher William Ernest Hocking. The library includes notes from Whitman, inscriptions from Frost, and first editions of Hobbes, Descartes, and Kant. As he begins to catalog and preserve thesepriceless books, Kaag rediscovers the very tenets of American philosophy – self-reliance, pragmatism, the transcendent – and sees them in a 21st-century context.

The Dialogues of Plato

Author: Plato

Reader: Pat Bottino

Format: 5 CDs (Unabridged)

Written between 427 and 347 BC, this ranks among the most important and influential works in Western thought. Most famous are the first four, in which Plato casts his teacher Socrates as the central disputant in colloquies that brilliantlyprobe a vast spectrum of philosophical ideas and issues, among them art, beauty, virtue, and the nature of love.

Elbow Room

Author: Daniel C. Dennett

Reader: Don Hagen

Format: 8 CDs (Unabridged)

In this landmark 1984 work on free will, Daniel Dennett makes a case for compatibilism. His aim, as he writes in the preface to this new edition, was a cleanup job, "saving everything that mattered about the everyday concept of free will, while jettisoning the impediments." He argues that the varieties of free will worth wanting-those that underwrite moral and artistic responsibility-are not threatened by advances in science but distinguished, explained, and justified in detail.
