Editorial Reviews


"Steven Emmanuel has done an impressive job of assembling a distinguished group of authors who give us a very helpful guide to the modern philosophers. With an eye to bringing us 'up to speed' on the more recent scholarship, the contributors provide a timely, readable, and highly worthwhile collection." John Fischer, University of California, Riverside

"This is a wonderful resource! It provides a valuable service by drawing on experts for eminently clear and engaging narratives. I expect to refer to it often." M. Jamie Ferreira, University of Virginia

"This book is a worthy acquisition." R.H. Nash, Reformed Theological Seminary, Choice, January 2001

"A superb volume...Each essay is clearly written, with most or all jargon carefully explained. By far this book's greatest asset...is the extraordinary way in which Emmanuel gets the different authors to provide, as if in concert, a chronological development of the main ideas of the period. Emmanuel's beautiful volume can, I think, very richly supplement a student's exposure to the period for those figures whose work receives little or no space on the syllabus." Patrick Mooney, John Carroll University, THES, 1/6/01

Book Description
