About the Authors
  • The Cambridge History of Modern European Thought is an authoritative and comprehensive exploration of the themes, thinkers and movements that shaped our intellectual world from the late eighteenth century to the present. Representing both individual figures and the contexts within which they developed their ideas, this two-volume history is rich with original interpretive insight, and is written in a clear and accessible style by leading scholars in the field. Renouncing a single 'master narrative' of European thought across the period, Breckman and Gordon establish a formidable new multi-faceted vision of European intellectual history for the global modern age.

    • Presents an authoritative survey of nineteenth- and twentieth-century intellectual history written by leading scholars in the field
    • Organized in roughly chronological fashion to provide an accessible introduction to European intellectual history
    • Balances coverage of the classic themes of European intellectual history with explorations of European and non-European figures and movements
