Many kinds of Cartesian views are treated by these papers: the views that Descartes held, views from our perspective on those views, views on Descartes held by his early critics and followers, and views that are Cartesian in outlook (not for nothing is Descartes still regarded as the father of modern philosophy.) These overlapping views provide the unity of this volume, and reflect the unity of Richard A. Watson's philosophical work. Not least among Watson's contributions has been his depiction of Cartesianism as a response to a set of problems within Descartes's philosophy. The later Cartesians were not slavish followers of Descartes. The contributors to this volume might be viewed as standing to Watson as the Cartesians did to Descartes.Readership: Al those interested in the history of early modern philosophy, and early modern ideas generally, Descartes influence on the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of science.Thomas M. Lennon, Ph.D. (1968) in Philosophy, The Ohio State University, is Professor of Philosophy at The University of Western Ontario, Canada. He has published extensively on early modern philosophy, including The Battle of the Gods and Giants, and Reading Bayle.
