review of: Helmut Holzhey / Vilem Mudroch (eds.), Die Philosophie des 18. Jahrhunderts. 5,2: Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation, Schweiz, Nord- und Osteuropa, Basel: Schwabe, 2014

Jahrbucher fur Geschichte Osteuropas. 2017. No. 3. P. 14-16.

Grundriss der Geschichte der Philosophie, roughly translatable as an “outline of the history of philosophy”, is a monumental undertaking that aims to cover the whole of the history of philosophy as comprehensively, correctly, and objectively as humanly possible. For English-speaking readers, it may be comparable to a mixture of a biographical encyclopedia and a handbook or companion. In addition, most chapterscontain detailed doxographical overviews of philosophical works. Comprehensive bibliographies both of sources and the secondary literature are contained in the volume as well.
