    schema:reviewBody ""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. Examining Descartes' life and work, this book includes 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. Additionally, themes often left unexamined are addressed, bringing new perspectives on one of philosophy's most studied and most influential figures. Written in an elegant and compelling manner that echoes Descartes' own writing, Gombay presents the reader with an accessible but challenging text that offers a strong background and new insights into Descartes' life and work."--Jacket." ;
