Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Between the earliest and the latest of the works included here, we have two hundred and fifty years of vigorous and adventurous philosophizing," Monroe Beardsley writes in his introduction to this collection. "If the modern period can be only vaguely or arbitrarily bounded, it can at least be studied, and we can ask whether any dominant themes, overall patterns of movement, or notable achievements can be found within it. This question is one that is best asked by the reader after he has read, or read around in, these works." Selections have been made from the writings of twelve European philosophers. These include:
Descartes        Discourse on Method

Pascal                Thoughts

Spinoza        "The Nature of Evil"

Leibniz        "The Relation Between Soul and Body"

Rousseau        The Social Contract

Kant                Critique of Pure Reason

Fichte                The Vocation of Man

Hegel                Introduction to the Philosophy of History

Schopenhauer        The World as Will and Idea

Comte                A General View of Positivism

Mach                The Analysis of Sensations and the Relation of the Physical to the Psychical

Nietzsche        Beyond Good and Evil

About the Author

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.
