2 DESCARTES, RENE. The Philosophical Writings Of Descartes - Volume II.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 1990. 0521288088 / 9780521288088 Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Good condition. 
This new translation is designed as a replacement for the old but still widely used translation by Elizabeth Haldane and G. R. T. Ross. . . . Unlike the Haldane and Ross edition which was translated from a composite text based on both the French and Latin editions, th present translation is made from the Latin text alone, with significant changes in the French edition indicated in the footnotes. This is clearly more satisfactory. The translation is generally accurate, and is neither excessively free nor excessively literal...There is little doubt that this will become the standard translation of Descartes' philosophical writings, and it deserves a warm welcome." - French Studies Translated into English from the Latin by John Cottingham, Robert Stoothoff and Dugald Murdoch. Includes an Index.

Penguin Books, London: 1999. 0140446990 / 9780140446999 Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Good condition. 
The Discourse forms the preface to Descartes' first collection of scientific papers (1637), sketching in a new method based on hypothesis and deduction which was soon to replace traditional techniques derived from Aristotle. This edition puts the work in context, by including extracts from Descartes' correspondence, the postumously published summary of his physical theories, which at one point in its chequered life had to be rescued from the river Seine. Includes an Index.
