Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy (1641) is often a starting point for students of philosophy. It forms the basis for much of Continental thought, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion. Descartes' text invites readers on a philosophical journey and this brief overview by Kurt Brandhorst is designed to prepare and accompany them. Brandhorst guides first-time readers through Descartes' language and offers pathways to a clear understanding of his method, ideas, and conclusions, while at the same time stimulating serious meditation on this deeply influential philosophical text.

Kurt Brandhorst is Adjunct Assistant Professor at Valparaiso University.

Editorial Reviews

"Designed to complement both the student's reading of the Meditations and class discussion of the reading.... No other book on the market, including collections of essays, serves this function very well." -J. Claude Evans, Washington University
