Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With its crisp translations, its clear introductions to often obscure primary sources, and its pedagogical concern to link these texts to perennial issues in interpreting the Meditations, this sourcebook should serve as an excellent text in a graduate or honors seminar focused on Descartes." International Philosophical Quarterly
