Product description

Review

'This new translation is designed as a replacement for the old but still widely used translation by Elizabeth Haldane and G. R. T. Ross … Unlike the Haldane and Ross edition which was translated from a composite text based on both the French and Latin editions, the present translation is made from the Latin text alone, with significant changes in the French edition indicated in the footnotes. This is clearly much more satisfactory. The translation is generally accurate, and is neither excessively free nor excessively literal … There is little doubt that this will become the standard translation of Descartes' philosophical writings, and it deserves a warm welcome.' French Studies

Book Description

Based on the new and much acclaimed two-volume Cambridge edition of The Philosophical Writings of Descartes, this anthology contains the most important and widely studied of those writings, including the Discourse and Meditations and substantial extracts from the Regulae, Optics, Principles, Objectives and Replies, Comments on a Broadsheet, and Passions of the Soul.
