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.
