|Abstract||Rene Descartes credited his success in philosophy, mathematics, and physics to the discovery of a universal method of inquiry, but he provided no systematic description of his method. Descartes and Method carefully examines Descartes's 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.|
