More than thirty eminent scholars from nine different countries have contributed to The Cambridge History of Eighteenth-Century Philosophy - the most comprehensive and up-to-date history of the subject available in English. During the eighteenth century, the dominant concept in philosophy was human nature, and so it is around this concept that the work is centered. This allows the contributors to offer both detailed explorations of the epistemological, metaphysical and ethical themes that continue to stand at the forefront of philosophy, and to voice a critical attitude to the historiography behind this emphasis in philosophical thought. At the same time due sensitivity is paid to historical context with particular emphasis on the connections between philosophy, science and theology. This judiciously balanced, systematic and comprehensive account of the whole of Western philosophy in the period will be an invaluable resource for philosophers, intellectual historians, theologians, political theorists, historians of science and literary scholars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback set: 'This comprehensive, topically organized resource ... contains 36 articles by 32 leading scholars from nine different countries ... highly recommended for university collections.' David Gordon, Bowling Green State University
"Highly recommended for university collections." Library Journal
"The volumes feature excellent indexical materials, especially a lengthy bio-bibliography, which includes biographical information and lists of major works of all the thinkers discussed in the essays. This feature alone makes the set valuable to any discipline touching on eighteenth-century intellectual endeavors. The contributors also uniformly write for a broader audience than philosophers alone; the essays on philosophy of language and normativity, among the most difficult philosophical topics covered, are accessible to nonspecialists." -- American Reference Books Annual
