‘Descartes: A Study of His Philosophy’ by Anthony Kenny

Published by St. Augustines Press in 2009.


Kenny’s Descartes is notably good & important book, designed to help undergraduate and graduate students in understanding Descartes’ philosophy. The book concentrates on Descartes’ epistemology, metaphysics & philosophy of mind. The penultimate chapter, on Matter & Motion, contains a succinct account of Descartes’ mechanism & a critique of the a priori side of his natural philosophy.
