Here are a few social/political philosopher links.



Here is a site with works from theorists devoted to forms of anarchism or libertarian socialism (I highly recommend Michael Bukunin):

This site has some writings of Theodor Adorno:

http://alum.hampshire.edu/~cmnF93/adorno.html


This site has some writings of Michel Foucault, as well as interviews:

Here is the "Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes:

Here is John Locke's "Second Treatise of Government", which basically disagrees with everything Hobbes says:

Here are two links to Jean Jacques Rousseau. The first link is his "Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men." The second link is "The Social Contract: or Principles of Political Right":

Can't believe I hadn't posted it.

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas.

Edit: The source just goes back to Harimau's first link, which is probably why I didn't post it for so long.Dumas is, however, a pimp and so he is receiving a special mention.

I don't think Journey to the West is available for free. You'll have to buy that. No idea on the other book.

I have a copy. I don't remember where it came from and it is in pdf It is an English translation by, apparently, Catholic who tends to use Cathollic terms for Buddhist practices. He refers, for example, to the Buddhist mass. I am told that the term appears elsewhere and has a specific ceremonial referent to something that is rarely done, but nobody seems to know exactly what the term means. It is quite readable and if you give me your email I will send you a copy of what I have. Maybe you can figure out if there is any current copyright. I got it for free, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

I happen to have looked at an Android book reader search of some free book source and didn't turn up the Jouney although I did turn up Three Kingdoms although I have not had time to look at it. I like the html version that I got from this site. The marginalia is quite good. .
