From the Publisher's Preface.
The present volume contains a reprint of the preface and the first part of the Principles of Philosophy,together with selections from the second, third and fourth parts of that work, corresponding to the extracts inthe French edition of Gamier, are also given, as well as an appendix containing part of Descartes' reply to theSecond Objections (viz., his formal demonstrations of the existence of Deity). The translation is based on theoriginal Latin edition of the Principles, published in 1644.The work had been translated into French during Descartes' lifetime, and personally revised and corrected byhim, the French text is evidently deserving of the same consideration as the Latin originals, and consequently,the additions and variations of the French version have also been giventhe additions being put in squarebrackets in the text and the variations in the footnotes.A copy of the title−page of the original edition, as given in Dr. C. Guttler's work (Munich: C. H. Beck. 1901),are also reproduced in the present volume.SELECTIONS FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF PHILOSOPHYOF DESCARTESTRANSLATED FROM THE LATIN AND COLLATED WITH THE FRENCH
