Summary
"The following translations from the philosophical writings of Descartes are made, with one exception, from the French text of Cousin's edition of the collected works in eleven volumes. The extracts from the "Principles" are translated from the Latin text of an Elzevir edition of the Opera Philosophica, Amst., 1677. No selections have been made from the mathematical writings, as not coming within the scope of the series. For the same reason, as well as for want of space, the more specifically physical views of Descartes are not fully represented. Much, perhaps, will be missed, but, on the other hand, portions of writings which, to the translator's knowledge, have not hitherto appeared in English, have been introduced. It is perhaps unnecessary to add that in making his selections the translator has derived much aid from the great historians of philosophy, particularly, Kuno Fischer, Erdmann, and Ueberweg, and from the recent treatise of Liard. In the revision of certain portions of the work, Professor Veitch's version has been consulted with advantage"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
