History of Philosophy
by Alfred Weber
Publisher: Longmans, Green 1914
Number of pages: 658
The author combines in his person the best elements of French and German scholarship. His knowledge of the subject is thorough and extensive, his judgment sound, his manner of expression simple, clear, and precise. The history of philosophy is not conceived as an aggregate of isolated, disconnected theories, but as an evolution, as a more or less logical development, as a process from the simple to the complex.

Philosophers are too busy doing philosophy to take time to stand back and consider how the project itself works. This is a good reason for philosophical hermeneutics, reflecting on the issue of how philosophical texts are to be interpreted.

Peter Caws provides a fresh treatment of some of the most vexing problems in the philosophy of science: explanation, induction, causality, evolution, discovery, artificial intelligence, and the social implications of technological rationality.

The appearance of a new idea can only be made intelligible by tracing the previous tendencies. The history of philosophy has itself a philosophy which requires that we go beyond particular phenomena and view them as related parts of a single system.

The purpose of this essay is to show that the social problem has been the concern of many of the greater philosophers, and that an approach to the social problem through philosophy is the first condition of a successful treatment of this problem.
