Modern Philosophy

Modern philosophy provides us with Descartes’ famous declaration “I think therefore I am,” Pascal’s infamous “Wager,” Hobbes view of the life of man as “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short,” Rousseau’s views on of the origins of social inequality, Voltaire’s satirical critique of absurdist philosophies, and Mill’s utilitarian attempt to achieve the greatest good.

From Rationalists to Empiricists, French and English writers to Prussian and Scottish luminaries, the philosophers of the Modern world vigorously strived to understand Man and his relationship to God, Society and the World.
