Bold and pioneering, this book makes a detailed historical and systematic case that Descartes's theory of knowledge is an elegant and powerful combination of a priori, naturalistic, and dialectical elements meriting serious consideration by both contemporary analytic philosophers andpostmodern thinkers. In the course of making this case Thomas Vinci develops a broad reinterpretation of Cartesian thought that unlocks novel solutions to many of the most vexed questions in Cartesian scholarship.
Thomas C. Vinci is at Dalhousie University.

Editorial Reviews

[Hatfield cont.] Vinci offers new insights in his examination of Descartes's theory of the cognition of object properties, and especially of the so-called 'primary qualities.' On other key Cartesian philosophical arguments and positions, Vinci offers analysis of equal depth and interest.Overall, this penetrating work shows that the project of speculative argumentative reconstruction is alive and well."--Gary Hatfield, University of Pennsylvania
