Classical Modern Philosophy Summary

Classical Modern Philosophy: A Contemporary Introduction by Jeffrey Tlumak (Vanderbilt University, USA)

Classical Modern Philosophy introduces students to the key philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and explores their most important works. Jeffrey Tlumak takes the reader on a chronological journey from Descartes to Kant, tracing the themes that run through the period and their interrelations. The main texts covered are:

  • Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy
  • Spinoza's Ethics
  • Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding
  • Leibniz's Discourse on Metaphysics and Monadology
  • Berkeley's A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge and Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous
  • Hume's An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion
  • Kant's Critique of Pure Reason

Classical Modern Philosophy is the ideal textbook to accompany a course in the history of modern philosophy, but each chapter can also be studied alone as an introduction to the featured philosopher or work. Jeffrey Tlumak outlines and assesses prominent interpretations of the texts, and surveys the legacy of each great thinker.

Classical Modern Philosophy Reviews

'This is the ideal text for undergraduate courses in early modern philosophy. Tlumak's account of these philosophers is accurate, thorough, and concise, and written in a clear and accessible style.' - James Baillie, University of Portland, USA


'The book is impressively researched and rich in detail. There are no books on the market that rival this in terms of breadth and depth. It will be crucial reading for those encountering the philosophy of the modern period for the first time, as well for more advanced students.' - Andrew Chignell, Cornell University, USA
