A bold and insightful departure from related texts, Descartes goes beyond the categorical associations placed on the philosopher's ideas, and explores the subtleties of his beliefs. * An elegant, compelling and insightful introduction to Descartes' life and work. * Discusses a broad range of his most scrutinized philosophical thought, including his contributions to logic, philosophy of the mind, epistemology, metaphysics, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of religion. * Explores the subtleties of Descartes' seemingly contradictory beliefs. * Addresses themes left unexamined in other works on Descartes.
