What is the modern turn in philosophy? In other words, what are the features that make modern philosophy distinctively "modern" in contrast with the pre-modern philosophy from which it emerged - for example, medieval scholasticism, Renaissance philosophy, and ancient Greek and Roman thought? How did the modern turn in philosophy transpire? That is, what did specific philosophers contribute that shaped the distinctive character of modern philosophy? The twelve essays in this volume seek to address these questions, and in doing so they exemplify and contribute to a rich debate about the nature and value of modern philosophy.
