*A new translation of a central philosophical text accompanied by a masterly and substantial introduction from the foremost Renaissance scholar Ian Maclean, designed to provide in-depth historical and philosophical context.
*The long introduction is a feature of this edition and is written from a historical point of view, making it particularly accessible to non-specialists. It sets out to answer the questions: what brought Descartes to write what he did? And what did his

*The notes explain historical references and allusions as well as philosophical ideas and terminology.
*The Discourse was written for a non-specialist readership, contains the famous 'cogito ergo sum' proof, and is an ideal introduction to Descartes for the general reader.
