Descartes in Relation to Cicero, Peirce, and Ryle
by John Blom
This work contains three essays. The first examines Descartes’ formulation of skepticism in light of Cicero’s Academica. The second and third essays develop my text-based critiques of the assaults on Descartes’ mind-matter dualism by, respectively, the American Pragmatist philosopher, C.S. Peirce, and the British philosophical behaviorist, Gilbert Ryle.
