About this Item: Daniel Elsevir, Amsterdam, 1664. 4to. Condition: Very Good. Daniel Elsevir, 1664. Quarto. Pp. 20 p.l., 222; [2] blank, [16], 248; [24], 92, [4] index. Three separate title pages. Engraved frontis portrait, woodcut printer's devices, initials, ornaments, and numerous textual woodcuts. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt panelled spine between raised bands. Binding a little rubbed at extremities, but on the whole an exceptionally clean, crisp copy internally, in a remarkably well-preserved binding. An early combined edition of Descartes's Philosophical Works, containing 1. "Principia Philosophiae", first published in Latin at Amsterdam in 1644. This is perhaps the most comprehensive of all Descartes's works, treating of both his theory of mind and his philosophy of matter. After recapitulating the conclusions concerning the mind arrived at the "Meditations" in part one, he goes on in the remainder of the work to deal with the principles of physical science, the concept of matter as extension, the laws of motion, the phenomena of heat, light , gravity, etc., and, at a more general level, the nature and justification of scientific hypothesis. This work also contains Descertes's famous vortex theory, by which he tried to reconcile Copernican astronomy with Biblical teaching, as well as the first scientific theory of magnetism. 2. The "Discourse on Method", which prefaces the treatises on "Dioptrics" and "Meteors", was first published in French as "Discours de la Methode" in 1637, and later appeared in a Latin version, revised by Descartes, as "Specimina Philosophicae" in 1644. Here we have the statement of the famous Cartesian 'method of doubt', rendering 'clear and distinct' ideas, which alone guarantees the certainty of human knowledge. 3. "The Passions of the Soul", Descartes's last work, was published in French in 1649 as "Les Passions de l' Ame". It considers the relation between the soul and the body, the action of the will, the emotions, and other moral issues. Seller Inventory # 22243

STCN (3, i.a. BL London). BN Paris (5). Willems 1008. NLM/Krivatsy 3116. - FIRST EDITION OF DESCARTES? SYSTEM OF PHYSICS, in which he developed his theory of vortices. Based in part on his then unpublished work Le monde, which treated the creation and function of the universe in completely mechanistic terms, Descartes? Principia provides a systematic statement of his metaphysics and natural philosophy. The first part, Dc principiis cognitionis humanae (Of the Principles of Human Knowledge) deals with the nature of motion, rest, force, and action. He defines motion in Book II and distinguishes the difference between translation and 'the force that brings about this translation.' Descartes was careful in the Principia to qualify his mechanistic Copernican views with the idea that all motion is relative. 'His vortical theory allowed him to argue that since the earth is at rest in its surrounding medium it remains unmoved, although it, together with its entire vortex, necessarily circles the sun' (Norman). Descartes? system represents a truly comprehensive look at the universe in a fundamentally new, mechanistic and non-teleological way. His vortex theory was the starting point for all serious work in physical theory in the mid-l7th century, including Newton. The fourth and final part of the work contains the first scientific theory of magnetism. II.: Norman 623; Guibert, p. 104; NLM/Krivatsy 3116; Tchemerzine II, p. 777; Willems 1008. - FIRST LATIN EDITION of the Discours de la méthode, which omits the treatise Géometrie. It includes the first appearance of the Cartesian sound-bite: 'cogito, ergo sum'. Although separate works, these two Elzevir publications often appear together. Visit our website to see more images!.
