A survey of 17th- and 18th-century philosophy with a focus on the major metaphysical and epistemological writings of Descartes, Leibniz, Spinoza, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant. This active and exciting historical span is the source of many contemporary philosophical approaches and themes, and it continues to attract scholarly interest in its own right. Topics include the natures of mind and body, the physical world, freedom, and human knowledge and the rise of mechanistic science.
