Descartes Embodied by Daniel Garber
Book DescriptionThis volume collects some of the seminal essays on Descartes by Daniel Garber, one of the pre-eminent scholars of early-modern philosophy. A central theme unifying the volume is the interconnection between Descartes' philosophical and scientific interests, and the extent to which these two sides of the Cartesian program illuminate each other, a question rarely treated in the existing literature. Amongst the specific topics discussed in the essays are Descartes' celebrated method, his demand for certainty in the sciences, his account of the relation of mind and body, and his conception of God's activity on the physical world. This collection will be a mandatory purchase for any serious student of or professional working in seventeenth-century philosophy, history of science, or history of ideas.

Oxford Studies in Early Modern Philosophy, Hardback (December 2015)
Oxford Studies in Early Modern Philosophy presents a selection of the best current work in the history of early modern philosophy. It focuses on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries-the extraordinary period of intellectual flourishing that begins, very roughly, with Descartes and his contemporaries and ends with Kant.
Leibniz: Body, Substance, Monad, Paperback (July 2011)
Daniel Garber presents a study of Leibniz's conception of the physical world, elucidating his puzzling metaphysics of monads, mind-like simple substances. Tracing the development of Leibniz's thought, Garber shows how dealing with problems about the physical world lead him to a world of animate creatures, and finally to a world of monads.
Kant and the Early Moderns, Paperback (July 2008)
Kant has acted as a lens - sometimes a distorting lens - between historians of philosophy and early modern intellectual history. This title brings together some of the world's leading historians of philosophy to consider Kant in relation to the earlier thinkers.
