Cartesian Psychophysics and the Whole Nature of Man by Richard F. Hassing
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book describes Descartes's The Passions of the Soul as a foundational work of the Enlightenment, a precursor of later notions of the historicity of the human, and the first psychology of modern type: to understand and heal ourselves, we look not out at the world in immediate relation to it, but inward, at the self, its brain, and its history.
