Introduction to Modern Philosophy


    MR. JOAD'S little volume is clearly written and gives a short outline of the present tendencies in modern philosophic thought. It contains chapters on the difference between idealism and realism, Mr. Bertrand Russell, Croce and Gentile, pragmatism, and finally Bergson. At the end of each chapter is a criticism of each system. The work is rather too short to be of much use to scholars, but it ought to fulfil admirably the purpose for which it is written, namely, to present to non-professional readers the works of the professional writers.
