Through these excerpts we have the pleasure of encountering active,probing minds. We can read of humanistic ideas as they break through intohistory for the first time. Often, even the oldest ideas remain fresh and new.The excerpts aim to be of sufficient length to convey anauthor's way of thinking. To facilitate further exploration of any particularline of thought, references to more extensive texts are given. Extracts from individual authors can be accessed alphabetically from the list above. A listing of authors by date of birth can be reached by clicking on Timeline; this provides a list of the time periods covered, with brief biographies of the authors in each time period.
