This book accepts John Dryden's skeptical temperament as the basic explanation of the development of his ideas. It examines skepticism in seventeenth-century literature - its bearings on religious thought, on science's defense against the charge of atheism, on conservative political thought". Four appendices plus an index. Previous owner's name on the first (the title) page, otherwise clean and tight with the covers showing some light shelf wear and scuffing.
