Between Two Worlds:
A Reading of Descartes's Meditations
John Carriero

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Between Two Worlds makes a significant contribution to the literature on Descartes's Meditations. It is likely to become a standard reference for Anglophone philosophers, and it is certain to be widely read and discussed."--Dennis Des Chene, Washington University in St. Louis

"John Carriero offers the most detailed and probing comparison of Descartes's arguments with those of his most famous and influential scholastic predecessor, Thomas Aquinas. The great advantage of this strategy is that it gives a clear and unified picture of how Descartes positions himself between scholastic Aristotelianism and the new mechanistic naturalism. This is an original and powerful reading of the Meditations and a worthy successor to Margaret Wilson's classic Descartes."--Lilli Alanen, author of Descartes's Concept of Mind
