Many works in philosophy and literature are accessible via online sources on the Internet. Fortunately, much of the best work in philosophy and literature is available in the public domain.

A translation of Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha, in particular, became available through Project Gutenberg by Michael Pullen. This edited version of that text is subject to the legal notice following the title page referencing the “Gnu Free Documentation License.”

Since the edited text is placed under the GFDL, this work is open-sourced, in part, to minimize costs to interested students of philosophy and, in part, to make it widely available in a form convenient to a wide variety of readers.


The link to the freely-available text is here:
