Descartes and Method carefully examines Descartess scattered remarks on his application and puts forward a systematic account of his method with particular attention to the role it plays in the Meditations, The authors boldly and convincingly argue against the orthodox conception that Descartes had no method. Through a rigirous and thorough examination, Daniel E. Flage and Clarence A. Bonnen unearth and explain the role of the method of analysis in the Meditations, This is a genuinly ground-breaking book that is sure to make a considerable impact on the philosophy community.
