Publisher's Summary

‘What you hold in your hands is a handbook for living: it is an account of how the greatest minds have spoken to us on how to grow and prosper as flesh-and-blood human beings.’  

Classic Philosophy for the Modern Man is unlike any other philosophy book you may have come across.   

It is inspired by a single concept: that, to thrive in the world, we need ready access to the practical wisdom of our forebears. Classic Philosophy for the Modern Man answers that need by introducing for the general listener the most powerful and enduringly relevant works of great thinkers from around the world, including:

  • Plato, The Republic
  • Aristotle, The Nicomachean Ethics
  • Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
  • Chuang-tzu, The Writings of Chuang-tzu
  • Machiavelli, The Prince
  • Castiglione, The Courtier
  • Gracián, The Art of Worldly Wisdom
  • Hazlitt, On Success
  • Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
  • Emerson, Spiritual Laws  

Together these works teach us how to achieve excellence; how to obtain and exercise power, advance in the world, and live gracefully; how to cultivate nobility of soul; and - above all - how to be one’s own man. There is no better primer in the art of living well.
