BROWSE PRINCETON'S SERIES (by title) in Studies in Intellectual History and the History of Philosophy

M. A. Stewart and David Fate Norton, Series EditorsThe purpose of this series is to foster improved standards of historical and textual scholarship in the history of philosophy and directly related disciplines. Priority is given to studies that significantly advance our understanding of past thinkers through the careful examination and interpretation of original sources, whether printed or manuscript. Major works and movements in philosophy often reflect interests and concerns characteristic of a particular age and upbringing, and seemingly timeless concepts may vary with the changing background of knowledge and belief that different writers assume in their readers. It is the editors' belief that a sensitivity to context not only does not detract from the philosophical interest or rigor of a commentary but is actually essential to it. They wish to encourage studies that present a broad view of a subject's contemporary context, and that make an informative use of philosophical, theological, political, scientific, literary, or other collateral materials, as appropriate to the particular case.
