The primary text for the introduction to philosophy course is this one:

Both texts are supplemented with additional readings, lecture viewings, etc.

I would recommend reading Michael Sandel’s book Justice and at the same time getting the Justice reader (book of selected readings in political philosophy) put together by Sandel, and watching Sandel’s online lecture series entitled Justice.

Yeah sure.

So right off the bat a good place to start (summary text if you want something simple with break down of the old arguments but written in Modern English and offering analysis) I would suggest Michael Sandel's Justice: A Reader, what's the right thing to do you can also watch the videos/discussions Dr Sandel has at Harvard's Justice Symposium Course (it's actually a great lecture series to just put on while you're doing something...

If you want a concise list of good books, I would suggest the following:

  • The Republic (Plato)‡;

  • The Prince (Machiavelli)‡;

  • Anarchy, State, and Utopia (Nozick);

  • Utopia (Thomas Moore)‡;

  • The Social Contract (Jean-Jacques Rousseau)‡;

  • Leviathan (Thomas Hobbes)‡;

  • Politics (Aristotle)‡;

  • Two Treatises on Government (John Locke)‡;

  • Treatise on Property (John Locke)‡;

  • On Liberty (John Stuart Mill)‡;

  • The Communist Manifesto (Karl Marx and Fredrick Engels)‡;

  • Reflexions sur la Revolution Francaise (Edmund Burke);

  • Capital (Karl Marx)‡;

  • Spirit of Laws (Montesquieu)‡;

  • Natural Right and History (Leo Strauss);

  • Modern Liberty: and the Limits of Government (Charles Fried);

  • Concept Political (Carl Schmitt);

  • The Constitution of Liberty (F. A. Hayek);

  • The Wealth of Nations (Adam Smith)‡;

  • The Road to Serfdom (F. A. Hayek);

  • Freakonomics ();

  • The Law (Frédéric Bastiat)‡;

  • Economy and Society (Max Weber);

  • The Protestant Ethic and Spirit of Capitalism (Max Weber);

  • Politics as a Vocation/Politik als Beruf (Max Weber)‡;

    The stuff with a double dagger (‡) are some critical ones I would recommend beginning with. The list is a lot longer than this because if there's one thing people can do it's write about issues of their times, but they are good nonetheless.

    Good luck!!
