As a Graduate of Political Sciences, I always needed a collection of the works of major political thinkers throughout the history. This will be a sticky topic to find the major works of political philosophy. Afterwards, we can read each work and discuss on them. Don't hesitate to contribute. Here's the first ones:
 
PLATO:
 
The Republic: http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext94/repub13.txt - http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext94/repub13.txt

T.W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Walter Benjamin were the most important members of the pre-war Frankfurter Schule, and of the immediate post-war period.
Current and last representative of the original is Juergen Habermas.

    to kotum:

nice idea this thread's great.

Besides, did you ever read Habermas? Have you understood anything? Do you think anything is interesting in what he says or that he is an old dinosaur that belongs to the great book of the great mistakes of humakind along with Ne-yo, English food and Sofia Coppola?

In fact, yes I read Habermas about 5 years ago; at that time I thought he was reasonable about the legitimacy crisis of the capitalist state but I don't remember much now, I have to read again. By the way, I wonder why do you see him as such a great mistake like others?Wink

This link is a great resource for studying Hellinistic philosophy. It contains the complete works listed. And I believe you can even cite the works based on their original book formats and not necessarily as an online resource, which tends to be less appreciated than an actual text.



http://classics.mit.edu/Browse/index.html

Copy/paste it if it doesn't come up as a link. It works the same way.

Roger Scruttin - Political Philosphy - I have the book. Bought from UK. It is not that expensive.

If anyone wants to read that much, I can send it probably.
