The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century (1790–1870)

The latest volume in the Cambridge History of Philosophy series, The Cambridge History of Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century (1790–1870) brings together twenty-nine leading experts in the field and covers the years 1790–1870. Their twenty-eight chapters provide a comprehensive survey of the period, organizing the material topically. After a brief editor’s introduction, the book begins with three chapters surveying the background of nineteenth-century philosophy; followed by two on logic and mathematics; two on nature and natural science; four on mind, language, and culture, including psychology, the human sciences, and aesthetics; four on ethics; three on religion; seven on society, including chapters on the French Revolution, the decline of natural right, political economy, and social discontent; and three on history, dealing with historical method, speculative theories of history, and the history of philosophy. The volume concludes with an extensive list of references.

Allen W. Wood is Ruth Norman Halls Professor at Indiana University and Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Professor emeritus at Stanford University. His recent book publications include Karl Marx (2004) and Kantian Ethics (2008). He has also edited and translated numerous works of philosophy and published extensively in academic journals.

Songsuk Susan Hahn is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the Université Concordia in Montréal, Québec, Canada. She has also held a teaching appointment at Johns Hopkins University and visiting appointments at Harvard University and the American University of Paris. She is the author of Contradiction in Motion: Hegel’s Organic Concept of Life and Value (2007).
