In your paper, explain and critically discuss those criticisms.

Further notes

It is certainly possible to answer these questions just by reading and thinking about the primary texts. However, if you want to go beyond that, a good place to start is the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..

To find further relevant items, you might try PhilPapers (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.or the Philosopher’s Index (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(will require you to be on the campus network).

If you’re looking for other texts, a good source is the Past Masters database (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(will require you to be on the campus network). Within Past Masters, the Continental Rationalists collection has good translations of the works of Descartes.

Finally, if the language of the texts is puzzling, you might try looking at the versions at http://www.earlymoderntexts.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., which presents “versions of some classics of early modern philosophy ... prepared with a view to making them easier to read while leaving intact the main arguments, doctrines, and lines of thought”.
