Descartes embodied reading Cartesian philosophy through Cartesian science by Daniel Garber ( )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume collects some of the seminal essays on Descartes by Daniel Garber, one of the preeminent scholars of early-modern philosophy. A central theme unifying the volume is the interconnection between Descartes' philosophical and scientific interests, and the extent to which these two sides of the Cartesian program illuminate each other, a question rarely treated in the existing literature." "Among the specific topics discussed in the essays are Descartes' celebrated method, his demand for certainty in the sciences, his account of the relation of mind and body, and his conception of God's activity on the physical world." "This collection will be a mandatory purchase for any serious student of or professional working in seventeenth-century philosophy, history of science, or history of ideas."--Jacket
Kant and the early moderns by Daniel Garber ( )
12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the past 200 years, Kant has acted as a lens--sometimes a distorting lens--between historians of philosophy and early modern intellectual history. Kant's writings about Descartes, Leibniz, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume have been so influential that it has often been difficult to see these predecessors on any terms but Kant's own. In Kant and the Early Moderns, Daniel Garber and Béatrice Longuenesse bring together some of the world's leading historians of philosophy to consider Kant in relation to these earlier thinkers. These original essays are grouped in pairs. A first essay discusses Kant's

Daniel Garber presents a study of Leibniz's conception of the physical world, elucidating his puzzling metaphysics of monads, mind-like simple substances.

The mechanization of natural philosophy by Sophie Roux ( )
11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Mechanisation of Natural Philosophy is devoted to various aspects of the transformation of natural philosophy during the 16th and 17th centuries that is usually described as mechanical philosophy. Drawing the border between the old Aristotelianism and the ± new [alpha] mechanical philosophy faces historians with a delicate task, if not an impossible mission. There were many natural philosophers who actually crossed the border between the two worlds, and, inside each of these worlds, there was a vast spectrum of doctrines, arguments and intellectual practices. The expression mechanical philosophy is burdened with ambiguities. It may refer to at least three different enterprises: a description of nature in mathematical terms; the comparison of natural phenomena to existing or imaginary machines; the use in natural philosophy of mechanical analogies, i.e. analogies conceived in terms of matter and motion alone.However mechanical philosophy is defined, its ambition was greater than its real successes. There were few mathematisations of phenomena. The machines of mechanical philosophers were not only imaginary, but had little to do with the machines of mecanicians. In most of the natural sciences, analogies in terms of matter and motion alone failed to provide satisfactory accounts of phenomena

Epistemology what we can know ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program travels from Plato's cave to Gettier's papier-mache barns while addressing along the way, questions such as: What does it mean to really know something? How can one know that one knows it? And is seeing the same thing as believing? Insights from academicians, in combination with incisive excerpts from Aristotle's De anima, Descartes' Meditations on first philosophy, Locke's An essay on human understanding, Hume's A treatise of human nature and Kant's Critique of pure reason, illuminate the complexity of "Truth."

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During the 16th century, a new breed of thinker arose, equal parts philosopher and scientist, that threw off the received wisdom of the past and started afresh. In this program contemporary philosophers and academicians address the major philosophical currents of that era -- and the explosive controversies surrounding them. Bacon's Novum organum, Descartes' Discours de la methode, Hobbes' Leviathan, Spinoza's Ethica and other germane works are cited."
Philosophy of science ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Does science explain the world, or does it simply describe it? Can science be truly objective? What is the boundary between science and non-science? Does nature have laws? This program seeks to answer questions such as these through the insights of Princeton University's Daniel Garber; Hilary Putnam, of Harvard University; and Barry Loewer, of Rutgers University. Ranging from the Physics of Aristotle to the competing physics paradigms of Einstein and Bohr, the program illustrates the progression of scientific thought from ancient times, through the Renaissance, to the 21st century
