  1. Giles Pearson (2016). Aristotle on Desire. Cambridge University Press.
    Desire is a central concept in Aristotle's ethical and psychological works, but he does not provide us with a systematic treatment of the notion itself. This book reconstructs the account of desire latent in his various scattered remarks on the subject and analyses its role in his moral psychology. Topics include: the range of states that Aristotle counts as desires ; objects of desire and the relation between desires and envisaging prospects; desire and the good; Aristotle's three species of desire: (...)

    Giles Pearson (2015). XIV—What Are Sources of Motivation? Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 115 (3 pt 3):255-276.
    In this paper I investigate sources of motivation. In particular, I address what sort of thing—what kind of entity—we are motivated by when we are motivated. I argue against two accounts of sources of motivation, in the sense I intend, in favour of a third. On my view, sources of motivation are not, as some think, to be identified with psychological states; nor are they, as others think, to be identified with facts. Instead, sources of motivation should be identified as (...)

  8. G. Pearson (2009). Towards One World. Cambridge University Press.
    This is an introduction to world affairs in 1961 and after. It shows in bold outline how our rather small, increasingly overpopulated world has come to be dominated by the two giants powers, the USA and the USSR, with a new class of neutralist ex-colonial countries holding an increasingly important position. While Mr Pearson shows the part played by European or Western influence in creating one world, he also stresses that the outlying parts of the world are now independent and (...)
