American philosophy had its classical period: this introduces many classic philosophers' ideas to students who don't know their writings. Each selected philosopher's major works are incorporated into a volume which includes a fine series of introductions outlining the work's major influences on the genre. From Dewey to Whitehead and beyond, this chronicles many highlights and will make an important high school or college text. -- Midwest Book Review
