Major historical texts now available free via InteLex Commons

InteLex

With immediate effect, Cambridge University members can now access additional texts of major historical significance, at no extra cost, alongside our InteLex Past Masters collections.

Past Masters Commons makes available a growing series of important texts and translations, uncovering the history of philosophy and thought. Over time, the Commons will build up an unparalleled body of material, which includes as of now the following collections, ranging from the classical, through the late renaissance and the enlightenment, to the Nineteenth Century:

  • WrightThe Collected Works of Chauncey Wright (XML). Mathematician and philosopher Wright was a co-founder of The Metaphysical Club and an early and passionate defender of the theories of Charles Darwin.
  • SuarezFrancisco Suárez’ massive Disputationes Metaphysicae (Latin, XML). A key figure in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century revival of scholasticism, Suarez  taught both philosophy and theology and created an extensive written legacy which has influenced many later philosophers.
  • MontesquieuThe Complete Works of Montesquieu (English translation, XML). Famed for his theories on the separation of powers – an area of lasting and highly current relevance – Montesquieu is one of the most significant political philosophers of the enlightenment, whose body of work ranges across a variety of subjects relating to history, government, science and society.

  • PlotinusPlotinus’ Enneads (English translation, searchable image format). A neoplatonist who lived in the Third Century AD, Plotinus – through his Enneads – exerted considerable influence on philosophical thinking, including that of the Church Fathers.

Coming soon in 2017 are works by Montaigne, Tolstoy, Charles Sanders Peirce and Dugald Stewart, with even more to follow.

The individual titles within these collections can be found now through a search of iDiscover, with the exception of the Suárez collection, for which, unfortunately, MARC records cannot be provided by InteLex.

InteLex Past Masters

We are able to access this body of material free of charge as a customer of the premium collections available through InteLex Past Masters. For those of you who are not familiar with this service, here’s a list of those collections (click on the links for authenticated access):

As with the Commons collections, these texts can be found in iDiscover.
