Descartes

A Study of His Philosophy

Kenny, Anthony

“Kenny’s Descartes is a notably good and important book. He says it is ‘designed to help undergraduate and graduate students in understanding Descartes’ philosophy.’ The book concentrates on Descartes’ epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of mind; but the penultimate chapter, on Matter and Motion, contains a succinct account of Descartes’ mechanism and a critique of the a priori side of his natural philosophy.” – The Philosophical Quarterly

Anthony Kenny taught philosophy at Oxford University for twenty-five years. He was Master of Balliol College, President of the British Academy, and Chair of the British Library. He has published over thirty books, mainly on philosophy and history.
