Claude Buffier and Thomas Reid : Two Common-Sense Philosophers.

Author: Louise Marcil-Lacoste
Publisher: McGill-Queen's University Press 1982.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
All too often it is said that common-sense philosophers fail to justify their appeal to common sense as a philosophical standard, and that they merely repeat one another in the glorification of philosophical trivialities. This book challenges these and other widespread assumptions about common-sense philosophers and provides a major reassessment of an influential segment of the history of ideas.
