Críticas:

Stephen Gaukroger has made an important contribution to Descartes scholarship with this unique, erudite and in many respects effective volume ... it is an exceedingly fine-grained study ... this is a work of exceptional scholarship, especially in the scientific dimension. Oxford has done a fine job of production, with many nice pictures and diagrams and a miraculously small number of typographical errors for such a large book. ( Margaret D. Wilson, Philosophical Quarterly)

Gaukroger's exposition of the background, development, and content of Descarte's work is exemplary in detail and completeness. It constitutes a major interpretation of Descarte's works as a whole in which his metaphysics is properly placed as subsidiary to his natural philosophy. ( International Studies in Philosophy)

Any future biographer of Descartes will have to contend with this study for the richness of its scientific analysis and the tremendous wealth of references presented in the notes. It is a well-printed, handsome volume ... Altoghether the celebration of the four-hundredth anniversary of Descarte's birth was well served by the publication of this study. ( Desmond J. Fitzgerald, The Thomist)

Stephen Gaukroger is an experienced and erudite writer on Descartes. He has a comlete mastery of the recent literature, and is at home equally in metaphysics, epistemology and natural philosophy. He offers reasoned argument against many conventional criticisms on Descartes. ( Nature)

Gaukroger writes well and his important book will certainly excite all students of 17th-century thought. ( The Times)

Stephen Gaukroger is an experienced and erudite writer on Descartes. He has a complete mastery of the recent literature, and is at home equally in metaphysics, epistemology and natural philosophy. He offers reasoned argument against many conventional criticisms of Descartes. ( Nature, Vol 374, April 1995)

Gaukroger's book fills the philosophical and historical vacuum which has grown around Descartes, and is a good source to consult for those who wish to better understand why his methodology became so influential. ( The American Rationalist)

Gaukroger knows more about his subject than his subject would ever concede. The result is a clear and fabulously thorough portrait of the father of modern philosophy. ( Washington Post)

Gaukroger uses Descartes' extensive correspondence to sketch a touching portrait of the philosopher's personal life. ( Times Higher Education Supplement)

Stephen Gaukroger is an experienced and erudite writer on Descartes. He has a complete mastery of the recent literature, and is at home equally in metaphysics, epistemology and natural philosophy. He offers reasoned argument against many conventional criticisms of Descartes. ( Nature)

The book is a very fine achievement indeed. Gaukroger long ago proved himself to be one of the best guides to the philosophy of Descartes ... in this work he has surpassed even his own high standards, and surely demonstrated once and for all that Descartes cannot be understood unless he is seen as a natural philosopher. Furthermore, thanks to the superbly clear organisation of his text, it is possible to break into the densely packed narrative in order to use it as a handbook. ( Metascience)

Gaukroger's expert grasp of the seventeenth-century scientific and mathematical background is also used to masterful effect in his account of Descarte's subsequent studies of geometry, optics, the physics of light and the mechanics of motion ... those prepared ... follow the details of Gaukroger's analysis will gain a greatly enriched understanding of the complexity involved in Descarte's project of demolishing the Aristotelian framework for the study of natural phenomena. ( Times Literary Supplement)

A comprehensive biography ... Mr Gaukroger entitles his book: "Descartes: An Intellectual Biography", and that is precisely what the reader gets ... Mr Gaukroger has written a biography remarkable in its detail and its scholarly research ... What emerges is as complete a biography of Descartes' thinking and how he arrived at it as we are likely ever to have. ( The Washington Times)

Stephen Gaukroger is an experienced and erudite writer on Descartes. He has a complete mastery of the recent literature, and is at home equally in metaphysics, epistemology and natural philosophy ... Gaukroger is surely right to treat Descartes as the first unambiguously modern philosopher. He steers firmly ... through the complexities created by the pressures to which Descartes' thinking was subject. ( Nature)

This book goes far beyond the usual treatment of Descartes merely as an epistemologist ... Gaukroger creates a flesh-and-blood Descartes, a man of passion, actively engaged in the world and the concerns of his time. Highly recommended for academic collections in biography, intellectual history, philosophy, and science. ( Library Journal)

Gaukroger has immersed himself in Descartes' world ... we come away from the study of Descartes' life with a deeper insight into the problem of progress in the sciences. ( The Christian Science Monitor)

Gaukroger's book lives up to its subtitle: It does valuable research in analysing Descartes' work over his shifting career and in its proper context. ( Kirkus Reviews)

Gaukroger's book contains tons of analyses of Descartes' physical and mathematical works. ( British Journal of the History of Philosophy, vol.5, no.1, 1997)

A useful collection of supplementary material is provided ... a series of valuable biographical sketches, a bibliography, and a good index ... the level of accuracy is high. ( J. R. Milton, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, vol.48 no.2, 1997)

Críticas:

"Gaukroger's book is not so much a personal portrait of Descartes as it is an extraordinary perambulation around the spiritual and intellectual life of the seventeenth century. It tells the tale of Descartes's recasting of the concerns of his contemporaries into a world that we find utterly familiar.... An extraordinary book. It is a never-ending source of astonishment that Descartes can still be so absolutely strange and so absolutely familiar.... Gaukroger has united the strange and the familiar in Descartes, teaching us something fundamental about the early conception of our world."--The New Republic"A touching portrait of the philosopher's personal life."--Times Higher Education Supplement"Gaukroger knows more about his subject than his subject would ever concede. The result is a clear and fabulously thorough portrait of the father of modern philosophy."--Carlin Romano, The Washington Post"Stephen Gaukroger's demanding intellectual biography explores every aspect of Descartes...and does so with considerable acumen and great scholarly thoroughness."--The Washington Post"Mr. Gaukroger has written a biography remarkable in its detail and its scholarly research....What emerges is as complete a biography of Descartes' thinking and how he arrived at it as we are likely ever to have."--The Washington Times
