Studies in Historical Philosophy
Editors: Alexander Gungov and Donald Phillip Verene
The series Studies in Historical Philosophy, edited by Alexander L. Gungov and with Donald Phillip Verene as Consulting Editor, aims at offering a forum for authors whose work is directed to traditional philosophical topics approached from a historical perspective. It welcomes new interpretations of philosophical figures, periods, and movements. Its intention is not the study of the historiography of philosophy in a narrow sense, but it is concerned with the examination of the inner logic of the unfolding of the questions and answers that have governed the development of philosophical thought and which may throw light upon issues of humane letters today.
