Editorial Reviews

The Review Of Metaphysics
This book is a collection of eleven terrific essays that represent a span of nearly thirty years of Descartes scholarship. The book clearly will not only benefit the professional researcher, but it will be of great value to undergraduate and graduate philosophy students interested in Descartes's work.
J. M. Beyssade
Provides an excellent introduction. . . . This book will be as useful to beginners as to seasoned academics because it brings together eleven articles that are both clear and profound. . . . The organization of the book is both simple and efficient, and the brief introduction and the bibliography are well done.
Alan Nelson
The high quality essays in this reader are carefully arranged to parallel the plot of the Meditations. It is a valuable guide for students of Descartes's most famous philosophical work.
