Review of Metaphysics 17 (1):153-153 (1963)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Selections of roughly equal length have been included from the Greeks, the Bible, Augustine, Bodin, Vico, Herder, and Hegel. Polybius is the best represented of the Greeks; excerpts from Thucydides total only a page and a half. Tillinghast admits to being an historian rather than a philosopher, and his introductions to each set of readings are seldom profound. While one may lament the necessary brevity of all the selections and dispute some of the choices, the editor has succeeded in producing a reasonably balanced, inexpensive volume for beginners in the philosophy of history.--W. L. M.
