Cartesian Truth

Philosophical Review 109 (4):642 (2000)

Helen Hattab

Cartesian Truth depicts René Descartes as grappling with the same problem confronting contemporary philosophers: the reconciliation of commonsense realism with a scientific view of the world. Vinci traces modern analytic epistemology back to Descartes, characterizing it as a set of tools Descartes and his successors developed to solve the problems of fusing the manifest and scientific images. Vinci is dissatisfied with contemporary solutions and sees better answers in Descartes’s epistemology.
