Locke : a biography by R. S Woolhouse( Book )

42 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive biography in half a century of John Locke. Against a historical background of the English Civil War, religious intolerance and bigotry, anti-Government struggles and plots, and the Glorious Revolution of 1688, Roger Woolhouse interweaves the events of Locke's rather varied life with detailed expositions of his developing ideas in medicine, theory of knowledge, philosophy of science, political philosophy, philosophy of religion, and economics. Chronologically systemic in its coverage, this volume offers an account and explanation of Locke's ideas and their reception, while entering at large into the details of his private life of intimate friendships and warm companionship, and of the increasingly visible public life into which, despite himself, he was drawn - Oxford tutor, associate of Shaftesbury, dutiful civil servant."--Jacket

Leibniz's 'New system' and associated contemporary texts by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gathered here for the first time are all the key texts in a crucial debate in modern philosophy, centred on Leibniz's famous 1695 essay, the 'New System of the Nature of Substances and their Communication'. In this classic essay Leibniz introduced to a broad European readership the strikingly original metaphysical ideas he had begun to come to a decade earlier. His 'system' became increasingly famous and drew him into discussion and development of these ideas, both in public and in private, with a variety of thinkers: Simon Foucher, Henri Basnage de Beauval, Francois Lamy, Isaac Jaquelot, the Englishwoman Damaris Masham, Pierre Desmaizeaux, Rene Joseph de Tournemine, and most notably the great French philosopher and scholar Pierre Bayle

Metaphysics and philosophy of science in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries : essays in honour of Gerd Buchdahl by R. S Woolhouse( Book )

12 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection have been written for Gerd Buchdahl, by colleagues, students and friends, and are self-standing pieces of original research which have as their main concern the metaphysics and philosophy of science of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They focus on issues about the development of philosophical and scientific thought which are raised by or in the work of such as Bernoulli, Descartes, Galileo, Kant, Leibniz, Maclaurin, Priestly, Schelling, Vico. Apart from the initial bio-bibliographical piece and those by Robert Butts and Michael Power, they do not discuss Buchdahl or his ideas in any systematic, lengthy, or detailed way. But they are collected under a title which alludes to the book, Metaphysics and the Philosophy of Science: The Classical Origins, Descartes to Kant (1969), which is central in the corpus of his work, and deal with the period and some of the topics with which that book deals
