It extends across a whole spectrum of approaches: some essays lean towards the historical, seeking truth as much as possible in the thought of the great master, while others are more inclined to suppose that philosophy advances, so that attention to the past must be selective, and certainly judgemental. All of them, however, illuminate the vital past of philosophy. This anthology of essays forms a companion to Philosphy as it is.
