Necessity, Volition, and Love by Harry G. Frankfurt
Book DescriptionOne of the most influential of contemporary philosophers, Harry Frankfurt has made major contributions to the philosophy of action, moral psychology, and the study of Descartes. This collection of essays complements an earlier collection published by Cambridge, The Importance of What We Care About. Some of the essays develop lines of thought found in the earlier volume. They deal in general with foundational metaphysical and epistemological issues concerning Descartes, moral philosophy, and philosophical anthropology. Some bear upon topics in political philosophy and religion.

Demons, Dreamers, and Madmen, Paperback (October 2007)
Provides an analysis of the question that not only lies at the heart of Descartes' "Meditations", but also constitutes the preoccupation of philosophy. This book offers an account of Descartes' defense of reason against the skeptical doubts that one might be a madman, dreaming, or, worse yet, deceived by an evil demon into believing falsely.
