Item description for A Critical History of Philosophy Volume 2 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 for teaching on the subject as president of colleges and as professor of mental philosophy while displaying the deepest virtue and usefulness. His biographers wrote: "The History is not a conpendium of what previous philosophies had maintained but rather a classification of all philosophies into four types, three of which Mahan rebuts and the fourth, that of commonsense realism, he stoutly defends."

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.
