The Science of Modern Virtue: On Descartes, Darwin, and Locke (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Despite their widely different ideas about human beings and human virtue, Rene Descartes, John Locke, and Charles Darwin all agreed that ideas have consequences - and they intended their own ideas to have real, world-altering results. Drawing on the ideas of these seminal thinkers, Peter Augustine Lawler and Marc D. Guerra have invited an important debate about the complex relationship between thought and action in modern times. Written by leading scholars from across the disciplines, the essays that comprise The Science of Modern Virtue examine the lasting influence of Descartes, Locke, and Darwin and invite us to consider the ways in which these men have shaped the ideas underlying the democratic and technological world in which we live.
