This anthology of readings in Modern Western philosophy (16th through to 18th centuries) includes the key writings of the British Empiricists and Continental Rationalists, along with the work of Kant. Striking a balance between major and minor figures, it features the best available translations of books--complete works or complete selections of works--which are both central to each philosopher's thought and are widely accepted as part of the “canon.” The selections are readable and accessible, while still being faithful to the original. Includes Introductions to each historical period and to each philosopher, and an abundance of drawings, diagrams, photographs, and a timeline. KEY TOPICS: Francis Bacon. René Descartes. Thomas Hobbes. Blaise Pascal. Baruch Spinoza. John Locke. Gottfried Leibniz. George Berkeley. David Hume. Thomas Reid. Immanuel Kant. MARKET: For anyone interested in Modern Philosophy (16th through 18th centuries).
