Early Modern Texts
Dr. Jonathan Bennet has graciously taken the trouble of translating texts from early modern philosophy (roughly, from Machiavelli to Kant) into current day English. Even authors who wrote in English, such as Hume and Hobbes, have had their seminal works modernized, specifically with undergraduates in mind. Dr. Bennet's resources are particularly useful if you are having trouble grasping a specific philosophical concept, or even a singular passage from a book.
