Description

This is a book on the contribution of Rene Descartes, a well-known philosopher-scientist. The author has discussed how Descartes gave foundation to the then sciences by philosophical principle and this consequently paved the way for philosophy of science. He has also discussed the impact of Cartesian thought on contemporary philosophical movements like Phenomenology and Existentialism.

COMMENTS

…Krishna Roy’s book brings out another aspect of Descartes’ contribution – namely, the way his Cogito principle serves as the foundation of modern science. I Believe this original interpretive study will arouse interest in Descartes, and free readers from that hasty critique of the so-called ‘Cartesian prejudice’ – which only shows one of the abiding prejudices of contemporary anti-Cartesianism, fostered by ignorance of Descartes as also of much of contemporary thought.
- J.N. Mohanty
