Discourse on Method, Optics, Geometry, and Meteorology

Front Cover
Hackett Publishing, 2001 - Philosophy - 388 pages

This volume preserves the format in which Discourse on Method was originally published: as a preface to Descartes's writings on optics, geometry, and meteorology. In his introduction, Olscamp discusses the value of reading the Discourse alongside these three works, which sheds new light on Descartes's method. Includes an updated bibliography.
