Item description for A Critical History of Philosophy Volume 1 by Asa Mahan & Richard Friedrich...
Overview We will not hesitate to say that this is one of the most important books ever given to man. At age 83, it was no accidental production, but a profound masterpiece produced over fifty years of the most intense reflection and thirty years of teaching on the subject as president of colleges and as professor of mental philosophy while displaying the deepest virtue and usefulness. Before Critical History, all such philosophical histories were the gloomy revelation of the contradictory errors of men, and the natural result was pessimistic skepticism. But the author has rather sanctified the science--gleaning the truth from all who discovered it. At the same time, he more than just exposed the mistakes and sins of all contrary systems, but also gave us the reasons for departure and the fully justified--and undeniable--reality that fills in the void. This original analysis not only solves the great world problems but also gives hope to the student where all other histories have left us in contradictory despair.

More About Asa Mahan & Richard Friedrich
Asa Mahan (1799 1889) experienced a religious conversion as a
young man and retained a preoccupation with personal salvation
and sin. He became the first president of Oberlin College, and he
used his position to champion the causes of emancipation and
equal co-education. The faculty of Oberlin quarreled frequently
with the highly religious Mahan, and in 1850 they voted
unanimously to relieve him of his position. In his place, famed
abolitionist and preacher Charles Finney was named president
of the college. Mahan then gathered a small band of friends and
students and founded Cleveland University. Later, he was also
named the first president of Adrian College, in Adrian, Michigan.
In 1874, Mahan moved to England, where he published
frequently until his death.
Asa Mahan was born in 1799 and died in 1889.
