Jane’O’Grady’s book on Enlightenment philosophy

We are delighted to report that our own Jane O’Grady’s recently published book, Enlightenment Philosophy in a Nutshell, is now widely available for purchase in bookshops and online bookstores, and has attracted glowing reviews; the Times Literary Supplement writing, ‘…there is nothing elementary about O’Grady’s primer. She pulls off the feat of writing a reliable and accessible introduction to modern philosophy that is also a meaningful contribution to the subject. She treats each of the long-deceased Enlightenment thinkers as interlocutors and then applies her skills as a philosopher to explain and evaluate their core ideas in clear, precise and readable prose.’ Read the full TLS review of Enlightenment Philosophy.

You can also listen to her enlightening, and opinionated, interview for the TLS podcast here.


The London School of Philosophy was founded in 2010 by a group of seven friendly and experienced lecturers formerly employed by Birkbeck College, following the reduction of the Birkbeck Philosophy Certificate programme.
