Editorial Reviews

R.C. Sleigh
"Original, incisive, probing essays on central topics in the history of modern philosophy by leaders in the field in honor of one of the masters in the discipline."
Catherine Wilson CUNY
"This volume of eighteen well-crafted analytical essays on Descartes, Locke, Leibniz, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant is authored and edited by some of the best known historians of philosophy today. Ranging over issues in the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, moral philosophy, and the philosophy of science, it is a fitting tribute to a notable scholar."
