Introduction to Realistic Philosophy (Hardcover)


Special Order—Subject to Availability
An attempt to provide students and general readers with an introduction to the basic concepts and principles of classic, realistic philosophy. Without some grasp of its basic principles, it is impossible to understand either the history of modern philosophy or the present nature of western culture. The method followed is critical and systematic rather than “historical”.

The author tries to present the basic classical doctrines and arguments in simple language, and with modern illustrations, capable of being understood by today's students. The doctrines have been drawn from the greatest thinkers of the realistic tradition, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas.

This is a reprint of the 1948 New York edition.
