Review

This is an excellent and fascinating book. Beiser brings to bear a deep knowledge of both primary and secondary sources, a sharp eye for important philosophical issues, and an engaging writing style. Michael N. Forster, Mind this book exhibits the stylistic virtues that readers have come to expect from Beisers work, above all the virtue of clarity of exposition Corey McCall, Philosophy in Review This is an excellent and fascinating book. Beiser brings to bear a deep knowledge of both primary and secondary sources, a sharp eye for important philosophical issues, and an engaging writing style. Michael N. Forster, Mind

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An extremely learned and very elegantly written book! It contains the newest and most comprehensive treatment of the German historicist tradition in English to date. One can learn a great deal from this book. It is to be regretted, however, that the book lacks a full-scale analysis of both Troeltsch and Meinecke. It is hardly justifiable to end the narrative with Max Weber in nearly complete disregard of their major works. Despite this shortcoming, the book deserves serious reading. I reccomend it to all the readers interested in the heritage of German historicism.
