REVIEW ç The Dream of Enlightenment Anthony Gottlieb ó 1 REVIEW REVIEW The Dream of Enlightenment The rise of Galilean science In a relatively short period from the early 1640s to the eve of the French Revolution Descartes Hobbes Spinoza Locke Leibniz and Hume all made their mark The Dream of Enlightenment tells their story and that of the birth of modern philosophyAs Gottlieb explains all these men were amateurs none had much to do with any university They tried to fathom the implications of the new science and of religious upheaval which led them to uestion traditional teachings and attitudes What does the advance of science entail for our understanding of ourselves and for our ideas of God How should a government. Overall this is a nice overview of early modern European philosophy with a relatively digestible mix of biography history and philosophy although certainly not enough philosophy to substitute for actually reading the philosophers discussed I have some criticisms on those in a bit but this is a helpful thing to read if you ve already read some of the figures featured I d stress that this is not a book to read in lieu of reading the primary sources you have to have some basic familiarity with them to get much out of this book Neither is this a book for specialists but I doubt specialists need my Goodreads review to tell them thatI read this to add to my background and framing for teaching a class in early modern European philosophy for instance Gottlieb s framing of Leibniz as a traditionalist reacting to Spinoza s heterodoxy helped my students wrap their minds around these difficult figuresI have two main criticisms First Gottlieb s presentation of philosophy is uite Eurocentric Focusing on Europe in the book isn t a problem since he is after all focusing explicitly on European philosophers That s not my complaint My complaint is pretending that European philosophy is all there is I found one claim in particular to be breathtakingly ignorant Gottlieb claims that Locke gave the first sustained philosophical treatment of the issue of personal identity p 152 This claim is presented as if Buddhist and Brahmanical philosophers in India had not been debating the intricacies of personal identity for nearly 2000 before Locke wrote the Essay That such culturally myopic claims are freuently made by experts in the field of philosophy does nothing to mitigate their wrongnessSecond there s no chapter on Berkeley and very little discussion of him As a Berkeley fan I find this inexcusable I grant that Berkeley isn t everyone s cup of tea Still Bayle and the French Philosophes merit their own chapters and Berkeley is at least as fun to read and as influential as they are especially for Hume and Kant Speaking of Kant there s no chapter on Kant either which bothers me slightly less because I can see a case to be made that Kant is the culmination of the early modern period and watershed of a new era of European thought Apparently Gottlieb is working on another book that will start with Kant Still some sort of conclusion pointing the way to Kant may have helped wrap this one up Български хроники Български хроники #2 led them to uestion traditional teachings and attitudes What does the advance of science entail for our understanding of ourselves and for our ideas of God How should a government.

    (The Dream of Enlightenment) [PDF NEW] Ô Anthony Gottlieb One thing I appreciate about this book is Gottlieb attempted to correct what he saw as common misunderstandings concerning certain philosophers ideas thus the section on Descartes Hobbs and Spinoza were really interesting and contained new material that I had not heard in other histories of philosophy The author's disdain for John Locke seemed very evident yet it was still worthwhile to hear criticism of a philosopher of which

    (The Dream of Enlightenment) [PDF NEW] Ô Anthony Gottlieb This is a great followup to Gottlieb’s book about mostly Greek Philosophy It’s maybe a bit on the short side and Gottlieb cherry picks a few enlightenment philosophers to focus on rather than attempting to be at all comprehensive He leaves Kant out for example which feels like a mistake Maybe he’ll talk about him in the next volume? Each chapter is essentially an essay on a different thinker and they are all very well done I
