Johann Jacob Brucker Bibliography

Historia critica philosophiae 1742
Brucker was a Lutheran pastor. His Historia was published in five-volumes, first in German then in Latin, in Leipzig between 1742 and 1744. It was an important work in the writing of the history of philosophy since it excluded religion as a philosophical subject. It retained its authority until late into the nineteenth century. Diderot used it extensively for his articles on philosophy for the Encyclopédie
