Jonathan Bennett has produced a remarkable set of 'translations' of classic texts in early modern philosophy. The texts are available free from Early Modern Texts in Philosophy. The idea is to provide versions of the books which are accessible to present day readers, particularly students, many of whom are stumped by the archaic language of the originals. There are works by Descartes, Spinoza Hume, Kant, Mill, and others. This involves some selection and paraphrase. Put this way it sounds as if it couldn't possibly work; and very few people would have been able to pull this off (or have the vision to see that it could work), but from my quick survey of some of these texts, it is a genuinely useful way of approaching these works (and check out the endorsements by eminent philosophers!). Amazing.
