History of Western Philosophy outlines the history of Western philosophy from the beginnings to the present day. Philosophers usually speak of classical philosophy (600 BCE to 400 CE), medieval and renaissance philosophy (400 to 1600), modern philosophy (1600 to 1900), and contemporary philosophy (1900 to today). This brand-new volume discusses the major thinkers of each of these periods and their most influential ideas.
