    Burke was the son of a Dublin attorney. In 1750, he entered the Middle Temple, London, but Burke soon abandoned law for literary work. In 1756 he published, anonymously, A Vindication of Natural Society . In 1765 he became the private secretary to Marquis of Rockingham, who at that time, but only for a year thereafter, was premier. Burke soon entered parliament, as a Whig, through a pocket borough, Wendover. During most all of his years as a parliamentarian, Burke was to sit in the opposition benches as a critic to the ruling Tories. These were times of great historical importance, marked by the unsuccessful coercion of the American colonies. The event, which was to unfold over a number of years, was, accompanied by corruption, extravagance, and reaction. Against this, Burke and his Whig friends could only raise a strong protest. "The best of Burke's writings and speeches belong to this period, and may be described as a defence of sound constitutional statesmanship against prevailing abuse and misgovernment." After the British colonies were lost, still yet in opposition, Burke turned his great talents in the support of the Irish cause

    Bacon, Francis
    Bacon was the lord chancellor of England; his removal in 1621 makes for a most interesting story. For legal philosophers, however, Francis Bacon is most well known for his delineation of the principles of the inductive scientific method , which constituted a breakthrough in the approach to science. Bacon was the originator of the expression, "Knowledge is power."
    Bagehot, Walter
    Mr. Bagehot was a mathematician; a moral philosopher; a political economist; a trained, though not a practising, lawyer; a banker; a shipowner; and, from 1860 till his too early death in 1877, the editor and manager of the Economist . Primarily, however, Bagehot was a reader and critic of books. I have a number of Bagehot's books including:

    Immanuel Kant�s book on Emanuel Swedenborg has mystified readers since its publicationin1766during Swedenborg�s lifetime. Its unusual style and content have given rise to two opposing interpretations. Most Kant scholars regard this work as a skeptical attack on Swedenborg�s mysticism. Others, however, believe that Kant regarded Swedenborg as a serious philosopher and visionary; that Swedenborg exerted a powerful influence on Kant�s mature critical philosophy; and that Dreams of a Spirit-Seer both reveals Kant�s profound debt to Swedenborg and conceals that debt behind the mask of irony.This unique edition includes translations of Kant�s other writings on Swedenborg, as well as texts by other writers illustrating the genesis and reception of Dreams. Synopsis In addition to the volume published anonymously by the German philosopher in 1766, here are presented letters and other writings illuminating his ideas about mysticism in general and about his older contemporary in particular.

Another useful book is Blackwell Companion to Philosophy (REF B21 B56 1996t) The emphasis of this book is on Anglo-American philosophy in the mid-to-late 20th century. It combines chapters on historical developments in philosophy with specialist chapters on standard introductory topics, central concepts, and debates within the field.

    82 Biographies History is the collective story of all people. Although each and every person has its part in history, the decisions and deeds of some tend to have more influence on the course of history than those of others. Some of these are known, like Churchill or Hitler, some of them are less known, like Turing or Heisenberg. Some we will never know, since the history we know of tends to focus on those events that are reported. Writing but small biographies for only a small collection of those who shaped this troubled times is a task we simply cannot fulfil. We hope that some of our readers feel up to the task of submitting biographies, or perhaps a small addendum to existing ones. Thanks! Order by Surname
