This volume presents early criticisms of Descartes’ philosophy by Dutch Reformed theologian Jacobus Revius (1586-1658).
The book offers the Latin texts—originally printed in 1647—of five theological disputations held at the States College in Leiden, and of Revius’ work Methodi cartesianae consideratio theologica. The texts are preceded by an introduction. Earlier references to Descartes in Revius’ Suarez repurgatus (1643/4) are appended.
This edition makes available theological texts of a remarkable quality. Documenting his argument carefully from various writings of Descartes, Revius seeks especially to indicate where Cartesian philosophy is not consonant with Christian (Reformed) religion or where it is inconsistent. Various indexes enhance the usefulness of the edition.
