Reviews - What do customers think about History of Philosophy, Volume V: Hobbes to Hume?
The Best Introduction to Philosophy out there!!! Jun 9, 2006
Copleston's series, "The History of Philosophy", is quite possibly the best introduction to the history of philosophical thought that has ever been published and certainly the best currently in print.
You will be hard pressed to find a better collection of solid philosophical surveys in one place. The beauty of the series is that Copleston has clearly done his research on each period and each thinker of Western philosophy.
I cannot recommend this series any more highly. It is a must-have collection for anyone who is a scholar (professional or casual) of philosophy, theology or any of the arts.
If this isn't on your bookshelf, it should be!
Philosophy for All Sep 30, 2005
"A History of Philosophy" by Frederick Copleston,S.J., is a very complete work. All volumes, including #5 - Modern Philosophy The British philosophers from Hobbes to Hume, are first class. I recomend with emphasis!
A good beginning series Jun 8, 2000
This is series is a good way to get involved in the thought of the world. You'll want to go further than what is discussed in the book but it is a very good start.
This volume is facinating May 29, 1999
At one point I went throught a British Empiricist phase. This book was an invaluable resource. I've never noticed any misinterpretations of the author's original texts in this volume.
