Against Absolute Goodness by Richard Kraut Against Absolute Goodness, Hardback (December 2011)

Are there things we should value because they are, quite simply, good? Richard Kraut argues that there are not. Goodness, he holds, is not a reason-giving property - in fact, there may be no such thing. It is an illusory and insidious category of practical thought.

What is Good and Why by Richard Kraut What is Good and Why, Paperback (May 2009)

What is good? How can we know, and how important is it? This book reorients these questions around the notion of what causes human beings to flourish - that is, what is good for us. It advocates a general principle that applies to the world of living things.

How to Read Plato by Richard Kraut How to Read Plato, Paperback (August 2008)

This book explores the intellectual milieu that gave rise to Plato's thinking and emphasizes the influence of Socrates, whose devotion to the examined life and death at the hands of Athenian democracy are memorialized in many of Plato's writings.
