Description - The Oxford Handbook of British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century by Peter R. Anstey
The Oxford Handbook of British Philosophy in the Seventeenth Century comprises twenty-six new essays by leading experts in the field. This unique scholarly resource provides advanced students and scholars with a comprehensive overview of the current issues that are informing research on the subject, while at the same time offering new lines of research. The volume is ambitious in scope and far reaching in impact. It covers the whole of the seventeenth
century, ranging from Francis Bacon, who flourished early in the century, to John Locke and Isaac Newton, who rose to prominence as the century drew to a close. In addition to dealing with canonical authors and
celebrated texts, such as Thomas Hobbes and his Leviathan, the Handbook discusses many lesser known figures and debates from the period, whose importance is only now being appreciated.
