Summary
"This collection presents some of the most original recent writings on Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz, the three greatest rationalists of the early modern period. Their work offered brilliant and distinct integrations of science, morals, metaphysics, and religion, which today remain at the center of philosophical discussion. These essays, all written especially for this volume, explore how these three philosophical systems treated matter, substance, human freedom, natural necessity, knowledge, mind, and consciousness."--Jacket
