The notion of idea is a key concept in early modern philosophy. From Descartes seminal works at the beginning of the 17th century to the work of Thomas Reid in the closing years of the 18th century, discussion in theoretical philosophy is dominated by the debate about the core concept of idea . This two-volume textbook introduces eleven key authors from this period. The first volume presents the central texts in modern translation, often new translations based on the source texts. The second volume contains commentaries on each text with a systematic introduction, a line-by-line commentary and a contextualisation of the contents. Thus this textbook provides students of philosophy with a comprehensive overview of the modern discussion of the concept of idea . "

Humes »Enquiry« gehört zu den wichtigsten Werken des großen schottischen Philosophen und ist einer der Klassiker der Philosophiegeschichte: Kant wurde nach seiner eigenen Aussage von diesem Werk aus seinem »dogmatischen Schlummer« geweckt und zu seiner kritischen Philosophie angeregt. In 12 Essays untersucht Hume verschiedenste Themen, die auch heute von Interesse sind, etwa Kausalität, den Skeptizismus, die Frage, ob wir frei oder determiniert sind oder ob es Wunder (bzw. letztlich: Religion) geben kann. Die zweisprachige Ausgabe gibt die vollständig durchgesehene klassische Übersetzung von Herbert Herring wieder und führt in Kommentar und Nachwort auf den neuesten Stand der Forschung. E-Book mit Seitenzählung der gedruckten Ausgabe: Buch und E-Book können parallel benutzt werden.

The best philosophy of science during the last generation has been highly historical; and the best history of science, highly philosophical. No one has better exemplified this intimate relationship between history and philosophy than has Robert E. Butts in his work. Through out his numerous writings, science, its philosophy, and its history have been treated as a seamless web. The result has been a body of work that is sensitive in its conception, ambitious in its scope, and illuminat ing in its execution. Not only has his work opened new paths of inquiry, but his enthusiasm for the discipline, his encouragement of others (particularly students and younger colleagues), and his tireless efforts to build an international community of scholars, have stimulated the growth of HPS throughout Europe and North America. Many of the essays in this volume reflect that influence. Our title, of course, is deliberately ambiguous. The essays herein are by colleagues and former students, all of us wishing to honour an intimate friend. Happy Birthday, Bob! IX INTRODUCTION The essays herein cover a variety of concerns: from Descartes to reduction, from Galileo to gambling, from Freud's psychoanalysis to Kant's thing-in-itself. But under this diversity there is an approach common to them all. Things are largely done with a concern for and a sensitivity to historical matters (including contemporary history, of course).
