Abstract
 
Description
Here in one convenient volume are Volumes IV, V, and VI - complete and unabridged - of the acclaimed reference work that has dominated the field of phlosophy for two decades.

Volume IV discusses the philosophies of Descartes, Pascal, Malebranche, Spinoza, and Leibniz. Volume V covers British philosophy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, marked by such giants as Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume, as well as other movements of far-reaching significance. Copleston takes up the eighteenth-century continental philosophers in Volume VI - beginning with the French Enlightenment (including Fontenelle, Helvétius, Robinet, Rousseau) and then going to the German Enlightenment (which includes the work of Lessing and Wolff) and finally to an intense treatment of Immanuel Kant.

These individual volumes have been hailed as "profound and well organized ... a remarkable accomplishment [marked by] dispassionate objectivity ... a magnificent survey." Now available as a three-in-one paperback, it will be welcomed by students and scholars of modern philosophy as a reference work that no library should be without. - from Amzon
