"An exceptional resource, providing an unusually wide and varied range of texts for each author. This book will be invaluable, giving a breadth of material without equal. An essential work of reference." Nicholas Dent, University of Birmingham <!--end-->

"While the study of modern philosophy has become a rich and exciting field, most texts for the period exactly resemble the texts of 30 years ago. In addition to moving beyond the Meditations and the Monadology to give some sense of the breadth of interests of the moderns, Emmanuel and Goold include a fine selection of nineteenth-century works. This collection should enable students and teachers to reconsider the contours of modern philosophy." Patricia Kitcher, Columbia University
