This work provides a survey of philosophy from Descartes to Hegel, found in unpublished manuscripts of the British/South African philosopher Arthur Ritchie Lord. These studies focus on what Lord called 'logic' - what would be considered today as metaphysics and epistemology. He adopted a strong historical approach to these issues, with extensive discussion of Hegel's contributions. This work not only provides readers with a uniquely idealist reading of the history of modern philosophy, but helps to explain a much-misunderstood perspective on epistemology and metaphysics.
