9780199570379: Descartes and the Puzzle of Sensory Representation

While much has been written on Descartes' theory of mind and ideas, no systematic study of his theory of sensory representation and misrepresentation is currently available in the literature. Descartes and the Puzzle of Sensory Misrepresentation is an ambitious attempt to fill this gap. It argues against the established view that Cartesian sensations are mere qualia by defending the view that they are representational; it offers a descriptivist-causal account of their representationality that is critical of, and differs from, all other extant accounts (such as, for example, causal, teleofunctional and purely internalist accounts); and it has the advantage of providing an adequate solution to the problem of sensory misrepresentation within Descartes' internalist theory of ideas. In sum, the book offers a novel account of the representationality of Cartesian sensations; provides a panoramic overview, and critical assessment, of the scholarly literature on this issue; and places Descartes' theory of sensation in the central position it deserves among the philosophical and scientific investigations of the workings of the human mind.

About the Author:


Raffaella De Rosa is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University.

Review:


"It is careful, clear, knowledgeable, and provocative. It contains the most comprehensive survey available of the literature on Cartesian sensations. And yet it is wonderfully short; one can finish it in an afternoon. For all these reasons, it would be an excellent textbook, even for undergraduates. It is also an ideal book for experts who want to solidify and deepen their understanding of these issues. We are confident it will become a definitive text in the field." -- Mind
