    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 55.50

    By the mid-1600s, the commonsense, manifest picture of the world associated with Aristotle had been undermined by skeptical arguments on the one hand and by the rise of the New Science on the other.

  • The Suasive Art of David Humeby M. A. Box

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Recognized in his day as a man of letters equaling Rousseau and Voltaire in France and rivaling Samuel Johnson, David Hume passed from favor in the Victorian age--his work, it seemed, did not pursue Truth but rather indulged in popularization. Although Hume is once more considered as one of the greatest British philosophers, scholars now tend to focus... more...

  • The General Will before Rousseauby Patrick Riley

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 38.00

    Patrick Riley traces the forgotten roots of Rousseau's concept to seventeenth-century questions about the justice of God. If He wills that all men be saved, does He have a general will that produces universal salvation? And, if He does not, why does He will particularly" that some men be damned? The theological origin of the "general will" was important... more...

  • How To Read Machiavelliby Maurizio Viroli

    Granta Publications 2014; US$ 9.32
