“The full scope and impact of Western philosophy from the Presocratics to the important thinkers of the twentieth century are presented in this original paperback series. Readings in the History of Philosophy contains many selections that appear in English for the first time, as well as selections that have never before been available in a modestly priced edition. Under the general editorship of Paul Edwards of New York University, and Richard H. Popkin of the University of California, San Diego, this series presents extensive and carefully chosen selections that emphasize the range and significance of the important philosophers of each period, their interrelationships with each other and with the intellectual currents of their age. Each of the eight volumes, prepared by a distinguished expert in the field, contains a comprehensive introduction, notes that discuss the import of the material presented, and an extensive bibliography.”- Publisher
