Copleston's history of philosophy is a standard textbook in philosophy classes. This is the third volume of that series, treating the late-medieval/early-modern period, which has proven to be so pivotal for Enlightenment, Romantic, and Modern/Contemporary thought. Copleston's texts are useful for anyone wanting to introduce themselves to the long story of humanity's search for wisdom.
