These two volumes provide a completely new translation of the philosophical works of Descartes, based on the best available Latin and French texts. They were intended to replace the only reasonably comprehensive selection of his works in English, by Haldane and Ross, first publsihed in 1911. All the works included in that edition are translated here, together with a number of additional texts crucial for an understanding of Cartesian philosophy, including important material from Descartes' scientific writings. The result should meet the widespread demand for an accurate and authoritative edition of Descartes' philosophical writings in clear and readable modern English.

Industry Reviews

"The translators deserve our appreciation, and everyone who studies or teaches Descartes--to any degree or at any level--should adopt their lucid rendition. We have a new industry standard." William Edward Morris, Teaching Philosophy.
