Descartes and Poinsot by John Deely
Book DescriptionRene Descartes (1596-1650) and John Poinsot (1589-1644) were contemporaries who stood, unbeknownst to themselves, at a crossroads in the history of philosophy. While Poinsot's work on semiotics became unfashionable after his death, Descartes' theory of ideas carried modern philosophy down a different path that proved to be a dead end. In "Descartes & Poinsot", John Deely contends that semiotics can lead us beyond the rationalist trap of modernity. This innovative volume reveals that Poinsot's forgotten philosophies provide the missing link between the ancient and the postmodern.

Medieval Philosophy Redefined, Hardback (January 2011)
Provides an original history of medieval philosophy, tracing a common thread that coherently unifies and defines what the author calls 'the Latin Age' - which reaches unbroken from the fifth-century work of Augustine through to the seventeenth-century work of Poinsot. This book is suitable for students and scholars of the history of philosophy.
Realism for the 21st Century, Paperback (February 2010)
A collection of thirty essays from John Deely, a major figure in contemporary semiotics and an authority on scholastic realism and the works of Charles Sanders Peirce. It tracks Deely's development as a pragmatic realist, featuring his early essays on our relation to the world after Darwinism and articles on logic, semiotics, and objectivity.
Augustine and Poinsot, Hardback (June 2009)» View all books by John Deely
