Copleston, an Oxford Jesuit and specialist in the history of philosophy, first created his history as an introduction for Catholic ecclesiastical seminaries. However, since its first publication (the last volume appearing in the mid-1970s) the series has become the classic account for all philosophy scholars and students. Continuum are now re-launching the series in a new cover design and with two extra volumes to make Copleston's history the first choice.
This eleven-volume work is one of the most remarkable single-handed scholarly enterprises of modern times. Brimming with detail and enthusiasm, the series gives an accessible account of each philosopher's work, but also explains their relationship to the work of other philosophers.
