Editorial Reviews


"Lisa Sarasohn boldly steps out of her usual field in the history of science to make a persuasive plea for Gassendi's importance in the history of moral philosophy. . . . The book will prove itself to be invaluable as a clear summary and exposition not only of Gassendi's views on ethics but also of the epistemology upon which the moral theory is based."—D. George Boyce, British Journal for Eighteenth Century Studies

"An important study on an important subject. It presents a new interpretation of the significance of Gassendi's ethics and political philosophy and fills a gaping hole in Gassendi scholarship."—Margaret Osler, University of Calgary
