Philosophy remains one of the most exciting ways in which we attempt to make sense of the world around us. In this stunning new book, Anthony Gottlieb turns to the philosophers of the Enlightenment to examine the richness of the period when Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, Leibniz, and Hume all made their mark. As science and technology exploded into life, the intellectual world was also bursting with thrilling new ideas, and fascinating diversions into new areas of life. Anthony Gottlieb is the former Executive Editor of The Economist and a historian of ideas; he remains one of our most exciting thinkers in the realm of history and its attendant philosophical developments. Come along to hear from a master of modern philosophy, who tells his subject’s history in an accessible and fascinating way.
