This November brings World Philosophy Day!

Enter your details in the tabs above for your chance to win.
The Bhagavad Gita, one of ‘the most important texts of Hinduism’, explores karma, spirituality and peace through its allegories of war and battlefields. A powerful text, The Gita navigates faith, community and individuality in a way that is as relevant today as it was 200 years ago. The Folio Society edition includes Juan Mascaró’s acclaimed translation, and stunning illustrations by Anna Bhushan. Find out more about our edition.
Fear and Trembling is a radical and unconventional text that reimagines religion from the perspective of corruption rather than devotion. Kierkegaard engages with the trauma attached to the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac, and asks a crucial question: what do we make of a creator who sets such a test? Challenging, ground-breaking, and surprisingly light hearted, this Folio edition is made even more powerful with illustrations by Paul Scheruebel. Find out more about our edition.
The Consolation of Philosophy was infamously written by Boethius while he awaited execution for treason. Described as being the most ‘influential work in the West on Medieval and early Renaissance Christianity’, The Consolation of Philosophy asks essential questions surrounding faith, free will, and justice. A hugely important piece of work, made all the more special by the Folio edition’s printed design by David Eccles. Find out more about our edition.
Closing date: 30 November 2017
