Do religious claims make sense? by Stuart C Brown( Book )
7 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This essay is concerned with a cluster of related problems which arise for an understanding of religious belief. In my treatment of them I have confined myself to examples drawn almost entirely from the Christian religion. I have accepted this restriction more out of necessity than partiality. It is difficult enough for a European philosopher to avoid unintentionally caricaturing that religion. The risk of his misrepresenting religions which have little influence his own culture must be even greater. I have, however, tried to make a virtue out of this restriction by addressing myself to some issues which have been of particular concern to Christian thinkers in recent years. But I hope that the bearing of my treatment of them on religious belief in general will be apparent. For few of them are peculiar to the Christian religion
The dictionary of twentieth-century British philosophers ( )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are substantial and original essays on the major American Enlightenment figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, David Rittenhouse, Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards, and many others. And the collection is wide-ranging - including many topical essays and entries on dozens of often-overlooked secondary figures, offering a fresh definition of the Enlightenment in America. It has long been known that Americans made their own contributions to the Enlightenment, most notably by putting Enlightenment ideas to work in defining the American Revolution, the United States Constitution, and the nature of the early American Republic. These volumes show that the American Enlightenment was more far reaching than even that story assumes. This remarkable work shows that the American Enlightenment constitutes the central framework for understanding the development of American history between c. 1740 and c. 1820

Historical dictionary of Leibniz's philosophy by Stuart C Brown( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was one of the first modern philosophers and one of the most significant. His contributions were often groundbreaking, and his imprint still remains on such fields as logic, mathematics, science, international law, and ethics. Although he published relatively little during his lifetime, he was in regular correspondence with important philosophers and even political leaders. Historical Dictionary of Leibniz's Philosophy sheds light not only on his philosophical thought but also the impact it had on the thinking of his contemporaries. They, and he, are described in numerous cross-referenced dictionary entries. Also explored are his writings, concepts, and action in specific fields. A bibliography provides a strong foundation for further study."--BOOK JACKET

The young Leibniz and his philosophy (1646-76) by Stuart Brown( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Despite the importance of Leibniz's mature philosophy his early work has been relatively neglected. This collection begins with an overview of his formative years and includes 12 original papers by internationally-known scholars. The contributions reflect the wide range of the young Leibniz's philosophical interests and his interests in related subjects, including law, physics and theology. Some chapters explore his relationship to other philosophers, including his teachers in Leipzig and Jena and his Paris friend Tschirnhaus, as well as Hobbes and Spinoza. Others focus on particular periods or texts and deal with themes ranging from ethics and free-will to his philosophically-significant account of transubstantiation and his early monadology. Some of the topics are familiar to Leibniz students - harmony, sufficient reason and possible worlds, for instance - but others are less familiar - for instance, his attitude to historical truth, millenarianism and the relation of mathematics to the natural world. This book provides an introduction to Leibniz's early philosophy and throws light on the development of some of the doctrines with which he is particularly associated."--BOOK JACKET
