This second edition incorporates corrections to the previous text and includes new readings. In the Introduction, Potter sets the selections in their historical context and gives a concise summary of the Enlightenment period, demonstrating how and why Rationalism and Empiricism came about, and challenging the reader to note not only the disparities between the two schools, but also the similarities of their common assumptions, both substantive and methodological.
