This book introduces the profound reflections of Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983) on the history of philosophy to English-speaking audiences. As a philosopher who rethought much of philosophy and theology, Zubiri felt it necessary to be in continuous dialogue with earlier thinkers both to avoid past mistakes and to extract all that is valuable from them. The theme of the present book is the transcendental in Western philosophy and how a firm grasp of it reveals underlying unity in Western philosophy, but also fundamental problems that Zubiri believed require a complete rethinking of certain basic notions and theories. Zubiri develops this theme by analyzing the work of six major philosophers: Aristotle, St. Thomas, Descartes, Leibniz, Kant, and Hegel. To conclude, he sketches his own resolution of the problems of Western philosophy, a subject addressed in greater depth in his major work, Sentient Intelligence. This translation was made possible by a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the most important European philosophers of the 20th century...splendid reading. -- Diego Gracia, M.D., Ph.D., professor of history of medicine and bioethics, School of Medicine, Complutense University of Madrid, member, Royal Spanish Acad
A historically-informed, integrated, and responsible response to the question 'What is Metaphysics?'...Zubiri is one of the 20th century's greatest European proponents for the history of metaphysics, not simply as "history of philosophy," but as the history of being as such. -- Brad Elliott Stone, associate professor of philosophy, director, University Honors Program, Loyola Marymount University
