By far the most widely used translation in North American college classrooms Donald A Cress s translation from the French of the Adam and Tannery critical edition is prized for its accuracy elegance and economy The translation featured in the Third Edition has been thoroughly revised from the First Edition and includes page references to the critical edition for ease of comparison, i I shall imagine myself as if I had no hands no eyes no flesh no blood no senses at all i br br Descartes was prepared to go to any lengths in his search for certainty even to deny those things that seemed most self evident In his i Meditations i of and in the i Objections and Replies i that were included with the original publication he set out to dismantle and then reconstruct the idea of the individual self and its existence In doing so Descartes developed a language of subjectivity that has lasted to this day and also took his first steps towards the view that would eventually be expressed in the epigram i Cogito ergo sum i I think therefore I am one of modern philosophy s most famous and most fiercely controversial claims br br The first part of a two volume edition of Descartes works in Penguin Classics this edition includes extensive selections from the i Objections and Replies i Part One of i The Principles of Philosophy Comments on a Certain Manifesto i and related correspondence from to, These two volumes provide a completely new translation of the philosophical works of Descartes based on the best available Latin and French texts They were intended to replace the only reasonably comprehensive selection of his works in English by Haldane and Ross first publsihed in All the works included in that edition are translated here together with a number of additional texts crucial for an understanding of Cartesian philosophy including important material from Descartes scientific writings The result should meet the widespread demand for an accurate and authoritative edition of Descartes philosophical writings in clear and readable modern English, No description available
