Editorial Reviews

"As with all the other volumes in the Blackwell series, this is as scholarly work of high quality and considerable depth . . . This book is a valuable contribution to the work of scholars studying trends in thought in the nineteenth-century." (Reference Reviews, 2011)

"This is a magnificent book . . . Within the confines of the space available, the essays are as definitive and comprehensive as they can be, written in many cases by the foremost scholars working on the thinker or theme . . .This, then, is a book to be savoured, wrestled with, and actively used over a long period of time. Let us hope the paperback comes soon. " (Theology, 1 June 2011)
