    Default Philosophy Audio Book Archive

    Something I posted on AF. It took a lot of work to create this list so I had saved it. Good thing I did.

    These audio books are from my favorite Free audio book site, LibriVox. This is pretty much their entire Philosophy archive, although there are works always in progress that will appear on their site at a later date. The following links are direct links to download the book, thus circumventing unnecessary page surfing and searching through a huge index of material non-related to philosophy. I Love these books, I have them uploaded in my iPod and listen to them at work.

    All recordings are in the "Public Domain" and are recorded by volunteers worldwide. You yourself can volunteer if you like. I thought about it myself and I may.

    Here is a link to the entire catalog:

    So here is it. I cannot leave this one out.

    Default The Best Philosophical Audiobooks from Librivox

    I still listen to these books everyday during my long commute to work and school. I hate wasting my time and a good audiobook is the perfect way to make use of sitting in traffic, waiting in lines...or waiting in general...or commutes in general.

    I've reviewed, perhaps, every philosophy audiobook found on Librivox and there are a few that I listen to over and over again--some dozens of times. The titles in the list below not only have great narrators, but contain material that's not too hard to follow while your attention is divided. That's why I left out, for instance, Kant, because it is difficult to follow his work in audiobook format and it's that much harder while driving. If you're passionate about philosophy I would highly recommend that you introduce listening to these titles into your daily habits. You cannot go wrong with these and it's important to become very familiar with the material IMO.

    If you click on the link the audiobook will begin to download.

    The Problems of Philosophy, by Bertrand Russell
    The New Organon, by Francis Bacon
    Leviathan Books I & II, by Thomas Hobbes (I excluded books III & IV because these deal with his Ecclesiastical writings and are less interesting IMO).
    A Treatise of Human Nature Vol 1, by David Hume
    A Treatise of Human Nature Vol. 2, by David Hume
    An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, by David Hume
    Pragmatism, by William James
    Essays in Radical Empiricism, by William James
    An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, by John Locke
    Auguste Comte and Positivism, by John Stuart Mill
    American Philosophy Collection Vol. 1, John Dewey et al.
    American Philosophy Collection Vol. 2, John Dewey, Arthur Lovejoy, and others.
    The Monadology, G. W. Leibniz

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Definitely Russell's The Problems of Philosophy. That one's is short, but broad in scope, super easy to follow and introductory-like, although, I still listen to it all the time. The hardcopy is something like ~100 pages.

    There are some important concepts in there, e.g. knowledge by description and knowledge by acquaintance.
