  3. Confessions of a Philosopher.Bryan Magee - 1997
    In this inspirational book Bryan Magee tells the story of his discovery of philosophy, and in doing so introduces the subject to his reader. Experiences of everyday life provide discussion of philosophers and explain why certain philosophical questions persistently exercise our minds. With great fluency Magee untangles philosophy, making it seem part of everyone's life. Intensely personal and brimming with infectious enthusiasm, this is a wonderful introduction to philosophy by one of the most elegant and accessible writers on the subject.

    Modern British Philosophy.Bryan Magee & Anthony Quinton (eds.) - 1971 - Oxford University Press.
    "Under Magee's sensitive guidance a remarkably coherent interpretation of this period emerges."--Marshall Cohen, Listener. "The whole book has a marvellous air of casualness and clarity that makes it a delight to read."--Colin Wilson. Contemporary British philosophy is experiencing unprecedented openness to influences from abroad. New growth is evident in many areas of traditional philosophy which had been neglected by the logical positivists and the linguistic analysts. This sense of freedom permeates Magee's volume of conversations with leading British philosophers. Under Magee's (...)

    Ultimate Questions.Bryan Magee - 2016 - Princeton University Press.
    How to live meaningfully in the face of the unknowable We human beings had no say in existing—we just opened our eyes and found ourselves here. We have a fundamental need to understand who we are and the world we live in. Reason takes us a long way, but mystery remains. When our minds and senses are baffled, faith can seem justified—but faith is not knowledge. In Ultimate Questions, acclaimed philosopher Bryan Magee provocatively argues that we have no way of (...)

    Wagner and Philosophy.Bryan Magee - 2000 - Allan Lane.
    A contribution to the literature of the 19th century culture, this is a study of the close links between Wagner and the philosophy of his age. The author communicates his enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, both Wagner and Schopenhauer with clarity. In consequence, the reader is left with an improved understanding of Wagner's music, the thought of his contemporaries, and, crucially, the part played by abstract reasoning on the composer's creative life.

  41. Het geheim van Tristan und Isolde.Bryan Magee - 2001 - Nexus 29.
    Hoe kan de behoefte om 'hartstochtelijk uitdrukking te geven' aan de geestesgesteldheid die teweeggebracht is door het lezen van een wijsgerige verhandeling tegelijkertijd de aanzet vormen tot een eenvoudig muzikaal concept, of zelfs, zoals Wagner zelf stelt, 'mijn minst gecompliceerde muzikale conceptie'? Magee analyseert dit probleem waarmee hij geconfronteerd wordt naar aanleiding van de opera Tristan en Isolde.
