Produktbeschreibung
The Descartes Dictionary is an accessible guide to the world of the seventeenth-century philosopher René Descartes. Meticulously researched and extensively cross-referenced, this unique book covers all his major works, ideas and influences, and provides a firm grounding in the central themes of Descartes' thought.

The introduction provides a biographical sketch, a brief account of Descartes' philosophical works, and a summary of the current state of Cartesian studies, discussing trends in research over the past four decades. The A-Z entries include clear definitions of the key terms used in Descartes' writings and detailed synopses of his works. Also included are entries noting philosophical influences, of both figures that influenced Descartes and those that he in turn influenced.

For anyone reading or studying Descartes, rationalism, or modern philosophy more generally, this original resource provides a wealth of useful information, analysis, and criticism. Including clear explanations of often complex terminology, The Descartes Dictionary covers everything that is essential to a sound understanding of Descartes' philosophy.

Rezensionen
The Descartes Dictionary is a well-conceived resource for undergraduate students, particularly those writing on Descartes for the first time. It helps to relate philosophical issues to the systematic context, and directs the reader to the appropriate range of texts. It is also valuable for the carefully chosen references to secondary literature. Joseph Zepeda, Assistant Professor, Integral Program of Liberal Arts, Saint Mary's College of California, USA 20140708
