Tad Schmaltz has done an excellent job of meticulously examining many out-of-the-way and nearly forgotten documents and authors, shedding light on the philosophical community during and shortly after the time of Descartes. This information clarifies Descartes, his context, his purposes, and his texts. Instead of reading Descartes from our perspective at the beginning of the 21st century, from a perspective of mature and waning modernism, and post-modernism, Schmaltz allows us to read Descartes as his contemporaries saw him, at the birth of modernism.

Relating their work to that of fellow Cartesians such as Malebranche and Arnauld, the book establishes the important though neglected role played by Desgabets and Regis in the theologically and politically charged reception of Descartes in early-modern France. This major contribution to the history of Cartesianism is of interest to historians of early-modern philosophy and historians of ideas.

As Cartesianism (or the Cartesian revolution) spread, adherents offered survey textbooks or treatises of physics to replace the corresponding Aristotelian curriculum. These books typically discussed the role of experience in physics and the appropriate standard of certainty. A comprehensive Cartesian natural philosophy needed to mechanize the offices of the Aristotelian sensitive soul, including sense perception, memory, and cognitive and appetitive responses to the environment. Descartes’ Treatise on Man (originally published as L'Homme, 1664) offered an initial explanatory program.
