Overview

The French philosopher and theologian Nicholas Malebranche was one of the most important thinkers of the early modern period. A bold and unorthodox thinker, he tried to synthesize the new philosophy of Descartes with the religious Platonism of St. Augustine. This is the first collection of essays to address Malebranche's thought comprehensively and systematically. There are chapters devoted to Malebranche's metaphysics, his doctrine of the soul, his epistemology, the celebrated debate with Arnauld, his philosophical method, his occasionalism and theory of causality, his philosophical theology, his account of freedom, his moral philosophy, and his intellectual legacy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Nadler, the author of many papers on Malebranche and seventeenth-century metaphysics and a philosophical biography of Spinoza, is to be thanked for assembling and in some cases translating this set of papers by well-known historians.... Malebranche's beautiful and fluid style, his range of scientific and philosophical interests, and his intellectual tenacity should win him a new generation of readers." The Philosophical Review

"The essays are all of high quality, and there is an excellent bibliography." Choice
