"Produced by a roster of highly qualified experts, this comprehensive account of the early modern period breaks new ground and covers old ground in a new and useful way. It should be consulted by almost anyone working in the field." Thomas M. Lennon, University of Western Ontario "Early modern philosophy has become a rather complicated domain in recent years, as scholars have delved deeper into the period and unearthed more and more philosophers and texts. Steven Nadlera s Companion is the perfect guide to this new world. Its forty chapters by a group of internationally distinguished authors give students and scholars a solid introduction to a wide variety of figures. It will help shape the way scholarship is done in the coming years." Daniel Garber, University of Chicago
