History of English thought in the eighteenth century by Leslie Stephen( Book )

Vol. 1 deals with the philosophy, and more particularly the theology, of the Age of Reason, and centers on the responses made by English thinkers to the challenge set by the new sciences to the Christian cosmology. While natural religion is the author's main concern here, he neglects no important intellectual strain in English religious life, all of which are treated fully and respectfully. Vol. 2 deals with moral philosophy, political theories, economic thought, and in a final section under the modest title "Characteristics", with general literature, Methodism and nascent Romanticism

44 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of eighty-four, Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) wrote an autobiography in Latin elegaics. Unsurprisingly, it was not as widely read as his two great philosophical works, Leviathan and Behemoth, in which he laid out a set of sociopolitical theories that enraged many of the philosophers and moralists of Europe. In this comprehensive biography, first published in 1904, Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904) charts the character and changes of Hobbes' thinking, from the scholasticism of his early Oxford education, to his later devotion

Author and mountaineer Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904) developed a passion for the Alps following his first trip to the Bavarian Tyrol in 1855. He went on to achieve several first ascents of Alpine peaks, earning him a reputation as one of the foremost alpinists in Britain. An intrepid climber and gifted writer, Stephen embodied a new trend of mountaineering, of a more athletic nature, and his vivid and lyrical descriptions of his experiences in these mountains have an almost poetic quality to them, testifying to the heights of his enthusiasm. First published in 1871 to commemorate his first ascents, this collection of articles quickly became a classic of mountaineering literature. The present work is a reissue of the 1894 edition, which was substantially revised by the author. It remains a charming and informative group of essays which will appeal to readers interested in the history of alpinism
