Translated by George Heffernan
This bilingual edition of Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy is aimed both specifically at serious students and professors of philosophy, and generally at anyone motivated by a strong philosophical interest.
“This is the first bilingual Latin-English edition of the Meditations with its ‘Letter of Dedication’ to the Sorbonne theology faculty, ‘Preface to the Reader,’ and ‘Synopsis.’ Descartes’ Latin and the English version appear on the facing pages, and the English paragraphs are numbered for ease in reference. . .[The book] includes an interesting scholarly introduction on Descartes’ life and writings, a comprehensive Latin index, and a brief bibliography.” — Choice
“The editor’s introduction to this welcome volume provides a wealth of scholarship that is enough to stimulate the student’s interest in other works by Descartes.” — Teaching Philosophy
