The Perfectibility of Man

by John Passmore

Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1970, ISBN 68412968X, paperback

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, uncreased spine (see photographs)

“…a masterful essay in the history and analysis of ideas.  Worthy of comparison with the work of the late Arthur O. Lovejoy or with J. B. Barry’s The Idea of Progress, it is comprehensive without vagueness, critical without narrowness, drily witty while being deeply learned and most timely and usable… It is a necessary book for anyone concerned with the future of man.
John Passmore, Professor of Philosophy at the Australian National University, is author of A Hundred Years of Philosophy (2nd ed. 1966), Hume’s Intentions (2nd ed., 1968) and Philosophical Reasoning (2nd ed. 1970).”
