For the new edition of the reader in classic moral and political philosophy, Morgan (philosophy, Indiana U.) has added Plato's Euthyphro, the Antigone of Sophocles, John Stuart Mill's The Subjection of Women, and Max Weber's "Politics as a Vocation." With the exception of different translations of the Platonic dialogues, the rest of the material (well-known writings by Aristotle, Epicurus, Epictetus, St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, David Hume, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Karl Marx, and Friedrich Nietzsche) remains essentially unchanged.
