Descartes, Leibniz, Spinoza, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant: these are the seven philosophers who stand out from the rest in what is known as the `modern' period in philosophy. Their thought defines the mainstream of classical or early modern philosophy, largely responsible for shaping philosophy as we now know it.
In a clear and lively style, Richard Schacht has written a thorough introduction to the work of these seven founding fathers of modern philosophy. The bibliography has been updated for this revised edition to take account of the recent explosion of writings on modern philosophy.

Industry Reviews

"Richard Schacht's "Classical Modern Philosophers is a fine book and helpful secondary source . . . the writing is clear and concise, there is a good index. Schacht provides a good balance of generalisation and detail, the text will be helpful to those encountering a standard septet (Descartes, Leibniz, Spinoza, Locke, Berkeley, Hume and Kant) for the first time as well as to those reviewing main themes in the history of modern philosophy.' In short: Schacht's is a very good book of its kind . . . its largest appeal will be to those teaching or learning philosophy in the classroom." -"Teaching Philosophy
