Rene Descartes

by Vere Chappell

Editorial Reviews

Commences a major Garland series which will examine minor as well as major philosophers of the 17th century through a large sampling of the best work published in the field over the past three or so decades--mainly articles or essays, but on occasion chapters or other discrete book-parts. Most of the essays included will be here republished for the first time, though a few have previously been reprinted. Volume one begins at the beginning, with Rene Descartes (1596-1650), often called the father of modern philosophy. Due to the particularly rich vein of recent work on Descartes, editor Vere Chappell has been able to exclude any previously anthologized essays, and to include only three essays published before 1978. Only a couple of the essays are in French, the remainder in English. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
