Early Modern Philosophy of Technology

Bacon and Descartes

Robert R.A. Arnautu

EUR 22,00
Disponible Ajouter au panier
Descartes is not only a philosopher but he is also a technological designer. He is involved in the design and even the construction of various devices, from the machine that cuts lenses, described in Dioptrics, to an automaton referred to in Cogitationes Privatae, a drainage system, a virginal, and the devices constructed with Villebressieu. Descartes works with craftsmen, offers theoretical and practical advice, and general considerations regarding the practice of constructing useful devices.
This book addresses the ’technological issues’of Bacon’s and Descartes’work in order to supply, for the philosophers of technology, a more nuanced analysis of the philosophical positions that set the stage for modern technology and, for the scholars in Early Modern studies, a different reading both of their philosophies and their conceptual affinities.
