This is the enlarged edition of A Critical History of Modern Philosophy. In this new edition Greek and Medieval Philosophies have been added. It is hoped that in the present form the book will be of greater use to the Indian students.
The book also includes a critical and comparative account of the major contributions of eight modern thinkers. To this exposition the idealism of Hegel and Bradley has been introduced. Recent discussions concerning Hume, Kant, Hegel and Bradley have also been incorporated. Whilst giving fully an analytic account of topics, the author maintains that philosophy is a holistic enterprise of man, as we find it in Spinoza, Kant, Hegel and Bradley.
The book is the outcome of the author's long teaching experience in the University of Magadh. It has turned out to be a reliable and useful book to the students of the subject throughout India. This thoroughly revised and enlarged edition will prove to be all the more serviceable in general.
