Title : Condillac

Description :
This brief introduction to Condillac's life and ideas was originally written as an encyclopaedia entry but is published on the Web as a one-off site. Born Étienne Bonnot, Condillac (1714-1780) was an important French empiricist philosopher who claimed that all mental operations could be derived from sensation alone. This website consists of a short biography of Condillac's life, a slightly longer section on his thought and importance to philosophy, and a final section consisting of a short, selective bibliography.
