Product Description

A History of Western Philosophy, Volume II:

Modern and Postmodern:

From Descartes to Derrida

By Dr. Norman L. Geisler

2012

 

Having covered ancient and medieval philosophy in Volume I, Dr. Geisler proceeds to tackle the modern and post-modern periods of philosophy–from Descartes to Derrida!  One of the things that makes this history of philosophy unique is the way Dr. Geisler provides a critical analysis of the philosophies through from a Christian, Biblical, and Thomistic viewpoint.

 

This is the first of a two-volume set on the history of philosophy from the Pre-Socratics to the Post-moderns.  It offers comprehensive exposition of the greatest and most influential thinkers of the western world from a Christian perspective.  This very unique set is the result of a life-time of research, teaching, and writing by Dr. Geisler, the founder and first president of the Evangelical Philosophical Society.

This is a 530 page eBook is a PDF file (not .mobi or .ePub).  This is not available as a printed (hardcover or softcover) book at the present time.
