Oxford Studies in Early Modern Philosophy is an annual series, presenting a selection of the best current work in the history of early modern philosophy. It focuses on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries -- the extraordinary period of intellectual flourishing that begins, very roughly, with Descartes and his contemporaries and ends with Kant. It also publishes papers on thinkers or movements outside of that framework, provided they are important inilluminating early modern thought.
Daniel Garber is Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University.
Donald Rutherford is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, San Diego.
