Description - Principles of Cartesian Philosophy by Benedict de Spinoza

This is a translation of the Dutch philosopher Spinoza's work, aiming to shed light on Spinoza's debt to Descartes, and also on the development of Spinoza's own thought. The introduction argues that Spinoza's philosophy, while heavily influenced by Cartesian physics, was ultimately founded on his own physical theory. Also appearing in this edition is Lodewijk Meyer's "Inaugural Dissertation on Matter" (1683), which is relevant for its comments on Descartes, Spinoza and other thinkers of the time. It is appended with notes and a short commentary. Cross-references to Descartes' "Principles of Philosophy" are provided in an index, and there is an extended bibliography.
