Meditations, Objections, and Replies Paperback / softback


This edition features reliable, accessible translations; useful editorial materials; and a straightforward presentation of the Objections and Replies, including the objections from Caterus, Arnauld, and Hobbes, accompanied by Descartes' replies, in their entirety.

The letter serving as a reply to Gassendi--in which several of Descartes' associates present Gassendi's best arguments and Descartes' replies--conveys the highlights and important issues of their notoriously extended exchange.

Roger Ariew's illuminating Introduction discusses the Meditations and the intellectual environment surrounding its reception.
