THE FIRST edition of the late Professor Thilly’s A History ol Philosophy appeared over thirty-five years ago.
Few books in the fields of philosophy or history have maintained undiminished popularity as texts and usefulness as reference works over so long a period.
The remarkable vitality of Professor Thilly’s work may be traced to its original conception and execution.
Perhaps the outstanding characteristic of Professor Thilly’s approach to the history of philosophy was the objectivity and impartiality of his historical attitude, which escaped the distorting effect of a dogmatic interpretation of historical development.
Professor Thilly allowed the philosophers to speak for themselves and, in the conviction that the later systems in the history of philosophy provide the criticism of earlier schools, kept his own criticism to a minimum.
