Description

With selections of philosophers from Fichte to Dewey, this new anthology provides significant learning support and historical context for the readings along with a wide variety of pedagogical assists.

Biographical headnotes, reading introductions, study questions, and special “Prologues” and “Philosophical Overviews” help students understand and appreciate the philosophical concepts under discussion. “Philosophical Bridges” discuss how the work of earlier thinkers would influence philosophers to come, and place major movements in a contemporary context, showing students how the schools of philosophy interrelate and how various philosophies apply to the world today.

In addition to this volume of 19th Century Philosophy, a comprehensive survey of the whole of Western philosophical history, and other individual volumes for each of the major historical eras are also available for specialized courses.
