Description
The nineteenth century is a period of stunning philosophical originality, characterised by radical engagement with the emerging human sciences. Often overshadowed by twentieth-century philosophy that sought to reject some of its central tenets, the philosophers of the nineteenth century have re-emerged as profoundly important figures. In this work, leading scholars examine and assess the central topics, themes and philosophers of the nineteenth century, presenting a comprehensive picture of the period in a single volume: German Idealism; philosophy as political action, including young Hegelians, Marx and Tocqueville; philosophy and subjectivity, including Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard and Nietzsche; scientific naturalism, including Darwinism, philosophy of race, experimental psychology and Neo-Kantianism; utilitarianism and British Idealism; American Idealism and Pragmatism; and new directions in Mind and Logic, including Brentano, Frege and Husserl.
