The latest volume in the Cambridge Histories of Philosophy series, The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century (1790-1870) brings together twenty-nine leading experts in the field and covers the years 1790-1870. Their twenty-eight chapters provide a comprehensive survey of the period, organizing the material topically. After a brief editor's introduction, the book begins with three chapters surveying the background of nineteenth-century philosophy: followed by two on logic and mathematics, two on nature and natural science, five on mind and language (including psychology, the human sciences and aesthetics), four on ethics, three on religion, seven on society (including chapters on the French Revolution, the decline of natural right, political economy and social discontent), and three on history, which deal with historical method, speculative theories of history and the history of philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century (1790-1870) has done an admirable job in presenting diversity without taking any partisan point of view with regard to any supposed essence in that century. Accordingly, this book is a welcome addition to the library of any scholar interested in the nineteenth century.' Dennis Vanden Auweele, Philosophischer Literaturanzeiger
'It is often said about a book that 'it will become a standard reference' for people working in a philosophical field of study ... The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century (1790-1870) is one of those rare cases for which that saying actually holds. Spectacular in its form and content, this massive volume of almost a thousand pages covers various aspects of the development of European philosophy in the period from 1790 to 1870 ... a truly invaluable tool (a 'standard reference') for anyone studying or researching the enormously complex nineteenth-century philosophical landscape ... [this book] is a monumental scholarly achievement and deserves to be wholeheartedly applauded for the amazingly rich information it offers the student of nineteenth century philosophy. The two editors have done a brilliant job in organizing a massive amount of material, and the authors of the twenty-eight essays have, with absolutely no exception, produced first-rate results.'
