Descartes and the First Cartesians by Roger Ariew Descartes and the First Cartesians, Hardback (November 2014)

Roger Ariew presents a new account of Descartes as a philosopher who sought to engage his contemporaries and society. He argues that the Principles of Philosophy was written to rival Scholastic textbooks, and considers Descartes' enterprise in contrast to the tradition it was designed to replace and in relation to the works of the first Cartesians.

Modern Philosophy by Roger Ariew Modern Philosophy, Hardback (September 2009)

An anthology of writings of the modern period. It provides the key works of seven major philosophers, along with a selection of associated texts by other leading thinkers of the period, chosen to deepen the reader's understanding of modern philosophy and its relationship to the natural sciences.

Meditations, Objections, and Replies by Roger Ariew Meditations, Objections, and Replies, Paperback (March 2006)

Provides translations, useful editorial materials, and a presentation of the Objections and Replies, including the Objections from Caterus, Arnauld, and Hobbes, and Descartes' Replies. The general Introduction discusses the Meditations and the intellectual environment surrounding its reception. Also included are a bibliography and chronology.

Pensees by Roger Ariew Pensees, Paperback (March 2005)

Roger Ariew masterfully renders the oddities of seventeenth-century French vocabulary and syntax in this eloquent and philosophically astute translation -- the first complete English translation based on the Sellier edition of Pascal's manuscript, widely accepted as the version closest to what Pascal intended.
