 "Modern Philosophy: Descartes to Kant",
a review by Carroll Quigley in The Washington Sunday Star, June xx, 1963,
of a book:
MODERN PHILOSOPHY; Descartes to Kant,
by …tienne Gilson and Thomas Langan.
Random House: New York, 1963 

 

"MODERN PHILOSOPHY; Descartes to Kant"

 

MODERN PHILOSOPHY: DESCARTES TO KANT
by Etienne Gilson and Thomas Langan.
Random House. 570 pp.

 

   This, the third volume of a general history of European philosophy, edited by Gilson, covers the critical period in which the basic modern approach to science, the state, and manís nature was established. The volume is not to be recommended for light summer reading, but it is sound, well-written, and authoritative and may well be the best general survey of the subject.

-- Carroll Quigley
June 16, 1963
