The text clearly presents and criticises the arguments of the major philosophers and historians who have contributed to our understanding of the philosophy of history.Mark Day's rigorous analysis is supplemented by useful pedagogical features, including key examples from historical and philosophical writing; summaries of core debates; study questions; and guides to further reading.
