E-book Explanation:

Descartes' ideas not only changed the course of Western philosophy but also led to or transformed the fields of metaphysics, epistemology, physics and mathematics, political theory and ethics, psychoanalysis, and literature and the arts. This book reprints Descartes' major works, Discourse on Method and Meditations, and presents essays by leading scholars that explore his contributions in each of those fields and place his ideas in the context of his time and our own. There are chapters by David Weissman on metaphysics and psychoanalysis, John Post on epistemology, Lou Massa on physics and mathematics, William T. Bluhm on politics and ethics, and Thomas Pavel on literature and art. These essays are accompanied by others by David Weissman and by Stephen Toulmin that introduce the idea of intellectual lineages, discuss the period in which Descartes wrote, and reexamine the premises of his philosophy in light of contemporary philosophical, political, and social thinking.

E-book Explanation:

This volume provides new translations of René Descartes’s two most important philosophical works. The Discourse offers a concise presentation and defense of Descartes’s method of intellectual inquiry—a method that greatly influenced both philosophical and scientific reasoning in the early modern world. Considered a foundational text in modern philosophy, the Meditations presents numerous powerful arguments that to this day influence debates in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of religion. Descartes’s timeless writing strikes an uncommon balance of novelty and familiarity, offering arguments concerning knowledge, science, and metaphysics (including the famous “I think, therefore I am”) that are as compelling in the twenty-first century as they were in the seventeenth. Ian Johnston’s translations are modern, clear, and thoroughly annotated, ideal for readers unfamiliar with Descartes’s intellectual context. An approachable introduction engages both the historical and the philosophical aspects of the text, helping the reader to understand the concepts and arguments contained therein.

E-book Explanation:

Excerpt from A Discourse on Method: Meditations on the First Philosophy; Principles of Philosophy An authorized reprint of Veitch's translation of Descartes' Discourse on Method has already been published as No.38 of the Religion of Science Library. The present volume is a reprint of the remainder of Veitch's translations of Descartes representative speculative treatises. The Meditations on the First Philosophy are translated entire, and the preface and the first part of the Principles of Philosophy, together with selections from the second, third and fourth parts of that work, corresponding to the extracts in the French edition of Gamier, are also given, as well as an appendix containing part of Descartes' reply to the Second Objections (viz., his formal demonstrations of the existence of Deity), and Veitch's notes. The translations are based on the original Latin editions of the Meditations and Principles, published respectively in 1641 and 1644. Both works having been translated into French during Descartes' lifetime, and personally revised and corrected by him, the French text is evidently deserving of the same consideration as the Latin originals, and consequently, the additions and variations of the French version have also been given - the additions being put in square brackets in the text and the variations in the footnotes. Dr. C. Guttler, of the University of Munich, has just published (Munich: C.H. Beck.1901) a new critical and annotated edition of both the Latin and French texts of the Meditations, and students desirous of consulting the sources may be referred to this easily accessible book. Dr. Guttler made use of the copy of the original Latin edition (1641), preserved in the Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris, and of the copy of the original French translation by the Due de Luynes (1647) found in the University Library at Gottingen. Literal copies of the title-pages of these original editions, as given in Dr. Guttler's work, are also reproduced in the p

E-book Explanation:

Rene Descartes (1596-1650) was a French philosopher, mathematician, and writer, known as the 'Father of Modern Philosophy', and much subsequent Western philosophy is a response to his writings. He is perhaps best known for the philosophical statement "Cogito ergo sum" (French: Je pense, donc je suis; English: I think, therefore I am), found in part IV of Discourse on Method."
