Moral philosophy from Montaigne to Kant

£20.50

Product description

This anthology contains excerpts from some thirty-two important seventeenth- and eighteenth-century moral philosophers. Including a substantial introduction and extensive bibliographies, the anthology facilitates the study and teaching of early modern moral philosophy in its crucial formative period. As well as well-known thinkers such as Hobbes, Hume, and Kant, there are excerpts from a wide range of philosophers never previously assembled in one text, such as Grotius, Pufendorf, Nicole, Clarke, Leibniz, Malebranche, Holbach and Paley. Originally issued as a two-volume edition in 1990, the anthology is now re-issued with a new foreword by Professor Schneewind, as a one-volume anthology to serve as a companion to his highly successful history of modern ethics, The Invention of Autonomy. The anthology provides many of the sources discussed in The Invention of Autonomy and taken together the two volumes will be an invaluable resource for the teaching of the history of modern moral philosophy.

Oxfam Shop Market Harborough

Situated in the heart of the historic market town, opposite the 17th century Old Grammar School, visitors to Oxfam in Market Harborough will find a warm welcome in our small but well stocked shop. We sell all the main categories of donated goods with a particular emphasis on quality clothing and accessories. Also on offer is a selection of vinyl that provides a taster for the more extensive range we offer via the online shop. In addition we sell books, toys and homewares plus much much more. We also sell an extensive range of Fair Trade gifts, jewellery and food, plus environmentally-friendly products.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
