Main Currents of Western Thought: Readings in Western European Intellectual History from the Middle Ages to the Present
Franklin Le Van Baumer
Yale University Press, 1978 - History - 806 pages
The illuminating short essays that introduce sections and subsections are well known, but the continuing usefulness of any reader depends upon the quality of its selections. Baumer has sought out passages that best represent and illuminate the ideas and preoccupations of each age. He has found them in the works of the great, including Augustine, Aquinas, Dante, Luther, Newton, Voltaire, Darwin, Whitehead, and Freud.
