Persistent Problems of Philosophy: An Introduction to Metaphysics Through the Study of Modern Systems (2nd revised edition)
This book is intended for students and readers who are seriously concerned with the problems of philosophy and genuinely anxious to study metaphysics under the guidance of the great thinkers. The book is, none the less, designed for beginners in philosophy, as well as for those more advanced, and the author has tried to make it clear in statement and logical in order. She has audaciously attempted to combine, also, what seem to her the essential features of a systematic Introduction to Metaphysics with those of a History of Modern Philosophy. This she have done both because she believes that the problems of philosophy are, at the outset, best studied as formulated in the actual systems of great thinkers, and because the historical sequence of philosophies, from Descartes's to Hegel's, seems to coincide, roughly, with a logical order.
