    Descartes and Sunspots: Matters of Fact and Systematizing Strategies in the Principia Philosophiae.John A. Schuster & Judit Brody - 2013 - Annals of Science 70 (1):1-45.
    Summary Descartes' two treatises of corpuscular-mechanical natural philosophy?Le Monde (1633) and the Principia philosophiae (1644/1647)?differ in many respects. Some historians of science have studied their significantly different theories of matter and elements. Others have routinely noted that the Principia cites much evidence regarding magnetism, sunspots, novae and variable stars which is absent from Le Monde. We argue that far from being unrelated or even opposed intellectual practices inside the Principles, Descartes' moves in matter and element theory and his adoption of (...)

    Physico-Mathematics and the Search for Causes in Descartes' Optics—1619–1637.John A. Schuster - 2012 - Synthese 185 (3):467-499.
    One of the chief concerns of the young Descartes was with what he, and others, termed “physico-mathematics”. This signalled a questioning of the Scholastic Aristotelian view of the mixed mathematical sciences as subordinate to natural philosophy, non explanatory, and merely instrumental. Somehow, the mixed mathematical disciplines were now to become intimately related to natural philosophical issues of matter and cause. That is, they were to become more ’physicalised’, more closely intertwined with natural philosophising, regardless of which species of natural philosophy (...)

    Descartes Scholasticus, Revisited: Roger Ariew: Descartes Among the Scholastics. Leiden: Brill, 2011, Xiii+358pp, €102 HB.John A. Schuster - 2014 - Metascience 23 (2):243-247.
    This is a revised and enlarged edition of Ariew’s well received 1999 collection, then entitled Descartes and the Last Scholastics. Ariew’s introduction usefully details all the changes and additions he has made. Just as the first volume was required reading for Cartesian scholars, this second, fifty percent larger and even better edition should replace the original on their bookshelves. Obviously, the volume is not a monograph, and so there is some repetition among the chapters. But, there is an overarching rationale (...)
