Modern Philosophy

The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, Volume 7

Mark Gedney, Editor

The papers in this volume demonstrate that an investigation of the fundamental themes of modern philosophy can bring enlightenment to our post-modern predicament, and remind us that once we begin to look closely at the work of individual thinkers we may discover riches that exceed their mere commonalties. Most of the papers deal with their subject matter with a clear eye to problems of the twenty-first century rather than merely focusing on historical debates. Each historical figure is discussed with the intent of demonstrating the power and coherence of his thought—not only for the debates that shaped modern philosophy, but also for the debates that shape our own. Contributors include Edwin Curley, Simone Goyard-Fabre, Zeljko Loparic, João Paulo Monteiro, R. C. Sleigh, Jr., Robert Sokolowski, and William Sweet.
