Abstract:

From the Dust Jacket: A study of the regulae. An authoritative, detailed commentary on the Regulae, which are taken, without special proof, to be the main statement of Cartesian method, the Four Rules of the Discours de la Methode being a partial reformulation. Descartes' method is viewed in its own context, not in its connection with Descartes' metaphysics. The secondary literature is carefully judged, controversies are firmly dealt with-the presentation is always precise and clear. Among the many illuminating pages are those on intellectual intuition and on Descartes' attitude towards formal logic, with interesting remarks on its relation to later developments.
