About the Book

Description:

Good+ in Wraps: shows light wear to the extremities; fairly heavy rubbing to the wrapper covers; former owner's name at the front and rear panels and another former owner's name at the upper corner of the inside of the front cover; the orange background field of the backstrip has been very lightly sun-blanched, but the titles thereon remain unaffected: bold and clearly legible; the binding leans somewhat, but the sewn binding is perfectly secure; the text is clean. Shows some wear, but remains a clean, sturdy, presentable reading copy. Large 8vo. xix, 381 pages. Second Edition [1969]; the first edition was published in 1952. Academic Press Paperback. Examines the nature of philosophical enterprise and philosophy's role in Western culture. Jones weaves key passages from classic philosophy works into their comments and criticisms, giving this book the combined advantages of a source book and textbook. The text concentrates on major figures in each historical period, combining exposition with direct quotations from the philosophers themselves. The text places philosophers in appropriate cultural context and shows how their theories reflect the concerns of their times. W.T. Jones' "History of Western Philosophy" series is the cream of the crop when it comes to philosophical surveys. Dr. Jones covers all the main thinkers of a given time and attempts to present their thoughts from the original author's perspective. He does this by non-judgementally discussing each thinker and by allowing the reader to read long excerpts of the original author's work. You get a very good flavor of the thoughts of the time period and of the struggles and perplexities that formed and informed each thinker. This is true of "Hobbes to Hume" just as it is of all the other books of the series. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Jones presents these incredible thinkers work in a manner that is not insulting to the highly-educated reader but is not beyond the comprehension of the beginner. For instance, there is a superb glossary. The investment in this book (and the rest of those in the series) is well worth it for anyone who wants to understand why we think the way we do. Second Edition [1969]; the first edition was published in 1952. Bookseller Inventory #
