Jan 12, Adam rated it it was amazing. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. He was better on the mid-late I have mixed feelings. Jan 24, Kraig Grady rated it really liked it. Nevertheless, I could barely follow Scrut I found this book quite unfriendly to the lay reader, who I have to assume is the targeted audience for a brief history.

Instead there is much that requires more investigation on my part and this I think this book provided where to go.

Mar 08, Bjbernis Bernis rated it it was amazing. I also very much appreciated his chapters on both Kant and Hegel, which I thought were lucidly written. Perhaps with Phenomenology is where his biases showed the most. It helps that Scruton is knowledgeable, clear thinking and has a clear and confident writing style. A word of caution though – this is not a book for the complete philosophy novice, even if it is called an introduction.


A really good summary. I have Copleston’s entire 9 volume History of Philosophy set and Bertrand Russell’s entertaining History of Western Philosophy but decided to begin my return to modern philosophy with Scruton for a couple of reasons. Furthermore, the sections on Descartes the section on the British empiricists was a bit tediousHegel, Marx, Nietzsche and Kant, who gets the eoger of coverage the greatest philosopher of modernity deserves, were impeccable.

Return to Book Page. As one of the most prominent Anglophone philosophers to deal with aesthetics, Scruton is ideally posed to present both the Continental and the Analytical traditions fairly – giving a far more nuanced presentation, for example, of the ideas of Hegel than Bertrand Russell’s pugnacious history does.

The author’s breadth of knowledge is incredible, and he uses his broader understanding of the History of Ideas to inform his portrayal of individual A superbly engaging summary of Western philosophy, starting from a brief recap of post-Hellenistic thought Scruton comes to the defense of the medieval scholastics, showing scrugon their work pre-empted many recent ideas and then getting into depth from Descartes onwards, culminating in Wittgenstein and the modern conception of philosophy of language.

This was clearly a bad choice for someone who has no previous knowledge of philosophy. Roger Scruton is a man of strong opinions who manages to understand other opinions while not necessarily sharing them Modern philosophy is a little out of my field, aside from a couple undergraduate classes in modern philosophy, Hume, Kant, Neitzsche and Kierkegaard many years agoI have always focused on Medieval philosophy.


I would advise avoidance, especially if you’re not already a fairly knowledgeable student of philosophy and thus able to parse this reader-unfriendly text. Ecruton Scruton couches his logical flow in a sort of dialectic between a philosopher and a sceptical interlocutor – and shows his own preference by his choice of whom to award the last word.

Historia de la filosofía moderna

Very good on the existentialists. Jul 29, Heather Tomlinson rated it really liked it Shelves: Generally well explained but uneven in his treatment of those he chose to discuss. The idea, to use Scruton’s example, of there being more than one God, while of great historical importance, need no longer detain the student of philosophy for very long. Unfortunately, I consider it a waste of time, if, like me, you don’t have some average to high knowledge of philosophy themes.

But I still struggled to totally grasp what some of the major figures were trying to say and the significance of their thought. Roger Scruton is a great teacher who expresses his opinions but gives enough wiggle room for the student to form his own opinion.
