Editorial Reviews

European Legacy
Cassirer's The Philosophy of the Enlightenment offers much to today's student of the cultural sciences. . . . If nothing else, in our world of concise histories and quick overviews, Philosophy of the Enlightenment is still an excellent and detailed handbook for anyone interested in the various philosophical currents of the Enlightenment.

From the Publisher
"At long last Cassirer's famous study of the Enlightenment comes to the English-reading public and in an excellent translation that calls for high praise. Here is a remarkable synthesis of the multiple and variant expressions of eighteenth-century thought; here is intellectual history at its most penetrating and profound."American Historical Review
