Descartes: A Biography

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2006 - Philosophers - 507 pages
Descartes died in Stockholm in obscurity but soon became one of the most famous philosophers of the seventeenth century, a status that he continues to enjoy today. This is the first biography in English that addresses the full range of Descartes' interest in theology, philosophy, and the sciences and that traces his intellectual development through his entire career."--
