Robinson, Keith A. 2001 0-7734-7573-7 348 pages This volume offers a map of the underlying movements of Foucault’s thought. Detailed and comprehensive, it demonstrates that Foucault is a philosopher of complex spaces, territories and architectures of thought across the range of his work, and includes analyses of lesser known texts (Magritte, Pierre Riviere, Brisset) that are hardly mentioned in the secondary literature. It also presents new and original readings of his major texts that will interest a wide audience. The primary sense, direction, and force of Foucault’s thought is shown to reside in the connections established between a new conception of space-time and freedom, an open system of relations that shows how he thinks the ‘present’ differently, designating this effort the ‘thought from Outside’. This is the freedom of thought in Foucault – a potentially dangerous or joyful yet necessarily endless effort to connect and reconnect with the Outside that is uniquely Foucauldian.

Sparks, Christopher 1999 0-7734-7976-7 292 pages The text considers Montesquieu as a thinker within a broad historical, social and philosophical context. As such the text is both about Montesquieu and uses Montesquieu to consider a range of broader issues. In particular the text focuses on questions of philosophical certainty and uncertainty and relates Montesquieu's work to historical, literary and social changes. This approach not only provides a wide ranging and multifaceted analysis of Montesquieu but also provides his work with a significant contemporary relevance .
Thomas, John Heywood 1995 0-7734-9591-6 204 pages This volume emphasizes the unity of philosophical outlook and coherence of thought in Kierkegaard's writings. Sketches the development of his thinking on the nature of faith, and identifies the decisive influences on him. Linguistic analysis clarifies his paradoxical theses concerning faith and uncertainty, and his importance, under six heads: (i) faith is not proof; (ii) rebuttal of rationalism; (iii) rebuttal of the empirical error; (iv) religious faith is the answer to a limiting question; (v) the insistence on the inclusion of the person; and (vi) the clue to the meaningfulness of religion.
Shaw, Daniel 1998 0-7734-8282-2 184 pages Based upon a study of arguments in the Treatise and the Enquiry, this work proposes a theory of motivation and of the making of moral judgments which is Humean in two important ways: it defends (1) Hume's anti-rationalist claim that reason alone cannot either motivate action or lead to the making of moral judgment, and (2) Hume's 'sentimentalist' claim that feeling is always essentially involved in both.
