Descartes’ posthumous return to Paris

I’m currently editing the Gospel of René Descartes, the third gospel to be produced in the Book of Science. The research is fascinating! Today I came across an excellent article on the sociocultural reception of Descartes and his New Philosophy in France after his death, using sociological, historical and philosophical methods. If you’re interested in European intellectual history in the 17th and 18th century, I highly recommend you give it a look:
