"Introducing Descartes" explains why he is usually called the father of modern philosophy. It is a clear and accessible guide to all the puzzling questions that Descartes asked about human beings and their place in the world. It gives a lucid account of Descartes' contributions to modern science, mathematics, and the Philosophy of Mind, and also reveals why Descartes liked to do all of his serious thinking in bed.
Dave Robinson has taught philosophy for many years and is the author of numerous Introducing titles. Chris Garratt is an illustrator. He is the cartoonist behind the legendary 'Biff' comic strip in the Guardian.
