    Is knowledge possible? If so, what can we know and how do we come to know it? What degree of certainty does our knowledge enjoy? In these two powerful works, Descartes, the seventeenth-century philosopher considered to be the father of modern philosophy, outlines his philosophical method and then counters the skeptics of his time by insisting that certain knowledge can be had. He goes on to address the nature and extent of human knowledge, the distinction between mind and body, the existence of God, and the existence of external objects.

    Considered a foundational text in modern philosophy, the Meditations on First Philosophy presents numerous powerful arguments that to this day influence debates in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of religion. This new translation incorporates revisions from the second Latin edition (1642) and the later French translation (1647) to make Descartes' reasoning as lucid and engaging as possible. Also included in this edition is a brief introduction to Descartes and the Meditations, revised and expanded from Andrew Bailey's acclaimed anthology, First Philosophy. The introduction helps the reader to understand the context and purpose of Descartes' project without over-explaining his arguments.

    The Treatise of Man represents Descartes' (1596-1650) contribution to the study of human physiology and anatomy. It contains detailed descriptions of the nervous system, a theory on the mechanics of motion, and several illustrations concerning the operations of the eye and the brain. While much of the science is wrong, the idea that the body functions as a mechanism marked a major advance in the field. This edition (which originally appeared in 1972) includes commentary on Descartes' physiology, on the contents of the first French edition, and on bibliographical materials.
