Clarke, Desmond M.


"Desmond Clarke makes excellent use of [the great material available on Descartes] and does a good job of tracing the details of Descartes's life--the many comings and goings, the exchanges with other thinkers. Clarke takes the often fragmentary testimony that we have from the letters, the accounts found in earlier biographies and the newly discovered facts, and works them into a convincing narrative. From his DESCARTES, the reader will be able to learn where its subject was when and what he was thinking about, what he was writing when, and how his writings came to be published. Clarke also supplements this factual information with summaries and interpretations of key questions in Descartes's thought."Clarke, Desmond M. is the author of 'Descartes A Biography', published 2006 under ISBN 9780521823012 and ISBN 0521823013.
