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.
