Indeed, on account of that break, he is frequently reputed to be the “father of modern philosophy.” This reputation, in an important sense, seems deserved.The present collection, however, attempts to reevaluate the currency of this comm...

Descartes and the Modern

As such, Descartes is widely read in and out of universities as the definitive moment in the birth of what we take to be the Modern. Yet, recent scholarship has presented numerous challenges to ...

In significant part, the ...
