A classic, accessible work on nineteenth-century philosophy, Perrier’s work is widely read and cited even today. Beginning with definitions, he asks the basic question of what Scholastic philosophy actually is. After defining the topic in a general way, he moves on to consider the basics of Scholastic metaphysics, cosmology, psychology, natural theology, and moral philosophy. Each of these weighty subjects is given considerable attention before Perrier moves on to discuss the forerunners of the Neo-Scholastic revival. Nation by nation he assesses the Neo-Scholastic revival in throughout the world, but focusing on Europe. His discussion concludes with a consideration of the Neo-Scholastic revival in the United States and Canada. Ideal for students of nineteenth-century philosophy and the Neo-Scholastic movement, this book has stood the test of time.

Joseph Louis Perrier (b. 1874) studied at the University of Montpelier, St. Francis Xavier College, and Columbia University. He taught at the City College of New York, Brooklyn College, Columbia University, and St. Joseph’s College for Women.
