Rene Descartes is arguably the most important seventeenth-century thinker and the father of modern philosophy. His seminal works are widely studied by students of philosophy. Yet his unique method and its divergence from the method of his scholastic predecessors and contemporaries raises complex and often challenging issues."Descartes: A Guide for the Perplexed" is a clear and thorough account of Descartes' philosophy, his major works and ideas, providing an ideal guide to the important and complex thought of this key philosopher. The book covers the whole range of Descartes' philosophical work, offering a thematic review of his thought, together with detailed examination of the texts commonly encountered by students, including the "Discourse on Method and Meditations on First Philosophy". Geared towards the specific requirements of students who need to reach a sound understanding of Descartes' thought, the book provides a cogent and reliable survey of the philosophical trends and influences apparent in his thought. This is the ideal companion to the study of this most influential and challenging of philosophers.Continuum's "Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.
