Editorial Reviews


It is careful, clear, knowledgeable, and provocative. It contains the most comprehensive survey available of the literature on Cartesian sensations. And yet it is wonderfully short; one can finish it in an afternoon. For all these reasons, it would be an excellent textbook, even for undergraduates. It is also an ideal book for experts who want to solidify and deepen their understanding of these issues. We are confident it will become a definitive text in the field. Elliot Samuel Paul and John Morrison, Mind De Rosa's examination of sensory representation in Descartes is both an intensive study and a masterful polemic on a subject of major concern to all Descartes scholars. It is an excellent contribution to a recent renaissance of erudite and deep studies of Descartes' epistemology. Richard A. Watson, Journal of the History of Philosophy De Rosa's book presents an interesting thesis... It also addresses a wide range of Cartesian texts, and provides a useful entree into the complex literature on Cartesian sensation theory... It should promote discussion of a topic that Hume rightly considered indispensible to an in-depth understanding of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century philosophy. David Clemenson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
