The philosophical canon in the 17th and 18th centuries : essays in honour of John W. Yolton( )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by distinguished and well known scholars working in the history of philosophy and intellectual history, illustrates many of John Yolton's central interests. The contributors represent the four countries with which John Yolton has been most closely associated: Canada, France, Great Britain and the United States. Francois Duchesneau begins with a topic to which Yolton has made a special contribution, Locke and the idea of thinking matter. The epistemological dimension which he gives to this topic is one taken up in Richard Popkin's analysis of scepticism and reason in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and it is the place of scepticism in Locke's thought that G.A.J. Rogers discusses in his paper. In his account of the recovery of Locke's library, Peter Laslett tells a story that every scholar would be well advised to mark and read with pleasure. Michael Ayers examines Locke's understanding of Laws of Nature and their implications
Thomas Hobbes Leviathan : a critical edition by G.A.J. Rogers and Karl Schuhmann by Thomas Hobbes( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By a deep and careful analysis of the text, enabling a new printing history of Leviathan to be constructed, this edition demonstrates that the traditional picture is substantially wrong. Both the Bear and Ornaments editions contain corrections and changes by Hobbes himself and are therefore central to reconstructing his text. In their substantial Introduction the editors examine all previous editions of Leviathan (as well as the manuscript copy prepared for Hobbes as a presentation copy for the King), throwing light on its history and calling into question the assumptions of previous editors
Locke's philosophy : content and context by G. A. J Rogers( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three hundred years after his major publications, John Locke remains one of the most potent philosophical influences in the world today. His epistemology has become embedded in our everyday presumptions about the world, and his political theory lies at the heart of the liberal democratic state. This collection by a distinguished international group of scholars looks both at core areas of Locke's philosophy and political theory and at areas not usually discussed - the links between Locke's philosophy and his religious and political thought, the effects and implications of Locke's works in the world at the time, and the manifestation of those effects in the present day
Studies on Locke : sources, contemporaries, and legacy : in honour of G.A.J. Rogers by Sarah Hutton( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of new essays on John Locke by a constellation of leading Locke scholars focuses on his philosophy, biography, sources and influence. The topics discussed here include his theory of ideas, his debt to Stoicism, his relations with the Dry Club and with his translator, Pierre Coste, and the hitherto overlooked critique by Thomas Beconsall. A major emphasis of the collection is the relationship between Locke and seventeenth-century philosophers, Descartes, Hobbes, Cudworth, Bayle, Malebranche and Leibniz. The coverage of Locke's legacy extends to into the eighteenth-century legacy as far as Rousseau and Kant."--BOOK JACKET
Scientia in early modern philosophy : seventeenth-century thinkers on demonstrative knowledge from first principles by Tom Sorell( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scientia is the term that early modern philosophers applied to a certain kind of demonstrative knowledge, the kind whose starting points were appropriate first principles. In pre-modern philosophy, too, scientia was the name for demonstrative knowledge from first principles. But pre-modern and early modern conceptions differ systematically from one another. This book offers a variety of glimpses of this difference by exploring the works of individual philosophers as well as philosophical movements and groupings of the period. Some of the figures are transitional, falling neatly on neither side of the allegiances usually marked by the scholastic/modern distinction. Among the philosophers whose views on scientia are surveyed are Hobbes, Descartes, Spinoza, Gassendi, Locke, and Jungius. The contributors are among the best-known and most influential historians of early modern philosophy

Insiders and outsiders in seventeenth-century philosophy( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventeenth-century philosophy scholars come together in this volume to address the Insiders--Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, and Hobbes--and Outsiders--Gassendi, Digby, Gale, Cudworth and Malebranche--of the philosocial canon. Contrasting the Insiders' receptions with those of the Outsiders, this collection gives new insight into the history of philosophy
The Cambridge Platonists in philosophical context : politics, metaphysics, and religion by G. A. J Rogers( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The philosophy of the Cambridge Platonists in the mid-seventeenth century constituted a unique return to many themes of classical Christian Platonism in epistemology and metaphysics. It did so at a time marked by great changes in the natural sciences and in philosophy under the impact of such figures as Galileo and Descartes and great religious and political turmoil in England associated with the Civil War. As well as examining central aspects of their thought and their political and religious implications, this book explores themes arising from that context and the relationship of key figures in the group with their contemporaries and successors. It consists of a series of original papers written by leading scholars of the period from England, France and Australia. A particular feature is the links made with contemporary political debate, an aspect of their thought hardly touched on in any other publications on the school
