Abstract

In order to evaluate the Cartesian Meditations it is absolutely necessary first to understand the work on its own terms, to think Descartes' thoughts with him. This essay takes the argument of the work as the culmination of the history of his thought, as therefore canonical. The author finds there a remarkable coherence, an answer to the chief objections brought against the work, and the elements of a foundation for truth in human understanding. Alternative views of the Meditations are analyzed where appropriate as coming to the argument from standpoints outside the work itself.
