Uniform title Works. Selections. English. 1984
Physical description 3 volumes ; 23 cm
Notes Vol. 3 also translated by Anthony Kenny.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
Summary These two volumes provide a completely new translation of the philosophical works of Descartes, based on the best available Latin and French texts. They are intended to replace the only reasonably comprehensive selection of his works in English, by Haldane and Ross, first published 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.
Subject Philosophy.
