Published in English for the first time, this is the updated version of Dall "et cartesiana a Brucker, the second part of the monumental multi-volume Storia delle storie generali della filosofia. The translation of the first volume, edited by C.W.T. Blackwell and Ph. Weller and published by Kluwer in 1993, covered the development of philosophical historiography from its origins in the Renaissance to the birth of the general history of philosophy as a genre in its own right. The present volume guides the reader from the historiographical effects of the Cartesian rejection of philosophical past " up to the establishment of a critical " or philosophical " history of philosophy. In the space of one hundred years, from the mid-17th to the mid-18th century, a momentous theoretical and methodological shift occurred, marking the transition from an erudite " historiography to new systematic " styles embodied by authors like Bayle, Boureau-Deslandes, Brucker, Heumann. The numerous works on the history of philosophy published during this century vastly contributed to the culture of the Enlightenment, creating a representation of the past distinctive to this crucial period of European intellectual history. The volume offers a detailed examination of 36 works, either general histories of philosophy, or texts ”such as Bayle "s Dictionnaire ”which have strongly influenced the development of the genre, and is valuable for intellectual history, philosophy and the history of philosophy, the history of literature and the history of religion. It can be used both for undergraduate courses (for specific reading assignments) and as background material for graduate courses. The bibliography provides important aids to many topics which were previously difficult to access.

Long Description
Published in English for the first time, this is the translation of "Dall'et cartesiana a Brucker", the second installment of the monumental multi-volume "Storia delle storie generali della filosofia". It follows on from the first volume, translated from the Italian by C.W.T. Blackwell and published by Kluwer in 1993, which covered the subject from its origins in the Renaissance to the Historia Philosophica. This volume guides the reader from the Cartesian rejection of the philosophical past " that found voice in the work of Malebranche, right up to the establishment of a critical " history of philosophy by 18th century thinkers A.-F Boureau-Deslandes and J.J. Brucker. The latter pair investigated philosophy from its most ancient origins up to the work of their own contemporaries, and in doing so acted as midwives to the birth of the history of philosophy into a genre in its own right. It was a shift in emphasis that spawned dozens of works of critical history which in turn made an immense contribution to the culture of the Enlightenment.Through careful analysis of more than 36 separate works, the authors show how in the span of a single century the theoretical and methodological techniques used to assess the history of philosophy were refined and developed. The period marks the vital transition from a so-called erudite " historiography to a critical " or philosophical " history of philosophy, embodied by Bayle and Heumann respectively. The works examined in detail are either general histories of philosophy, or texts ”such as Bayle "s Dictionnaire ”which have strongly influenced the development of the genre.
