In this volume from The Enlightenment World series, Wayne Hudson reinterprets the work of an important group of 17th century writers known as 'the English Deists', among them Herbert of Cherbury, Charles Blount, John Toland, Anthony Collins and Matthew Tindal. Hudson warns against assuming the label 'deist' represents a single relious identity, and he reads the English deists' works in the light of their different personae and social roles. No jacket.
