Other Selves: Philosophers on Friendship


“Friendship, that pervasive, everyday, and subtle matter of our most intimate personal life, has rarely been accorded its due. Michael Pakaluk has retrieved the thoughts of our greatest thinkers on the subject and collected them into a handsome and handy volume…A splendid book!” –M. M. Wartofsky, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Baruch College, City University of New York.

Paradise Lost 3rd Edition


A revision of the Prentice Hall edition of 1962. David Scott Kastan preserves the quality and character of Hughes’s richly annotated edition in this masterful revision, which includes a thorough updating of the text, notes, and bibliographies to reflect the scholarship of the last half-century. Kastan’s new introductory essay engages the pressing questions the poem raises for contemporary readers, focusing on the literary, religious, and political dimensions of Paradise Lost that have made its reading a demanding yet always exhilarating experience.
