A Companion to Early Modern Philosophy

A Companion to Early Modern Philosophy is a comprehensive guide to the most significant philosophers and philosophical concepts of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Europe. The individual chapters, written by leading scholars in the field, represent the most up-to-date research in the history of early modern philosophy.

These newly commissioned essays span a wide range of philosophical areas and problems, including metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, ethics, political philosophy, and aesthetics. Each presents a general overview of the thought of each figure and provides the reader with an accessible but sophisticated account of the philosopher's basic ideas.

A Companion to Early Modern Philosophy includes biographical information on each philosopher, a bibliographical guide, and a list of works for further reading. It will be an invaluable resource for students and professionals alike.
