✏Common Sense Book Summary : When Common Sense was published in January 1776, it sold, by some estimates, a stunning 150,000 copies in the colonies. What exactly made this pamphlet so appealing? This is a question not only about the state of mind of Paine’s audience, but also about the role of public opinion and debate, the function of the press, and the shape of political culture in the colonies. This Broadview edition of Paine’s famous pamphlet attempts to reconstruct the context in which it appeared and to recapture the energy and passion of the dispute over the political future of the British colonies in North America. Included along with the text of Common Sense are some of the contemporary arguments for and against the Revolution by John Dickinson, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson; materials from the debate that followed the pamphlet’s publication showing the difficulty of the choices facing the colonists; the Declaration of Independence; and the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776.

✏The Life of Reason Book Summary : Santayana's Life of Reason, published in five books from 1905 to 1906, ranks as oneof the greatest works in modern philosophical naturalism. Acknowledging the natural material basesof human life, Santayana traces the development of the human capacity for appreciating andcultivating the ideal. It is a capacity he exhibits as he articulates a continuity running throughanimal impulse, practical intelligence, and ideal harmony in reason, society, art, religion, andscience. The work is an exquisitely rendered vision of human life lived sanely. In this first bookof the work, Santayana provides an account of how the human animal develops instinct, passion, andchaotic experience into rationality and ideal life. Inspired by Aristotle's De Anima, Darwin'sevolutionary theory, and William James's The Principles of Psychology, Santayana contends that therequirements of action in a hazardous and uncertain environment are the sources of the developmentof mind. More specifically, instinct and imagination are crucial to the emergence of reason fromchaos. Separating himself from the typical thought of the time by his recognition of theimagination, Santayana in this volume offers extensive critiques of various philosophies of mind,including those of Kant and the British empiricists. This Critical Edition, volume VII of The Worksof George Santayana, includes a chronology, notes, bibliography, textual commentary, lists ofvariants, and other tools useful to Santayana scholars. The other four books of the volume includeReason in Society, Reason in Religion, Reason in Art, and Reason in Science.

✏The Common Sense of Politics Book Summary : The first edition of The Common Sense of Politics described itself as a "just in time tonic for those of us who have given up on common sense as well as on politics and can no longer see the connection between the two." One has only to scan the pages of this 1996 edition to recognize that this book is just as appropriate and important, if not more. With the development of a European Community, the upcoming American presidential election, and in light of the recent celebration of the U.N.'s 50th anniversary, it is crucial that we, as citizens of the world, approach politics with common sense and a universal desire to improve our institutions toward managing and administering to a greater mankind. This book, built upon universal principles of a politics of common sense and for the purpose of restoring faith in the reform and improvement of our institutions, is the way toward perfect society and toward the bettering of the condition of man on earth.
