The conflict of Gods and Giants Redux is a suite of 14 unique essays by way of major students within the box. half One comprises figures and issues linked to Descartes, the executive idealist within the tale, together with Leibniz, Spinoza, and Malebranche; half comprises figures and themes that fall at the Gassendist materialist part of the conflict, together with Hobbes, Bayle, and Locke. In organizing those various discussions alongside those issues and features, anything greater than the sum of the components emerges. The reader will achieve a breadth and intensity of perception into the conflict of principles in early smooth thought--historical, philosophical, and interpretive. members are: Margaret Atherton, Martha Brandt Bolten, Patricia Easton, Lorne Falkenstein, Nicolas Jolley, Jose Maia Neto, Steven Nadler, Alan Nelson, Lawrence Nolan, Donald Rutherford, Tad Schmultz, Kurt Smith, Julie Walsh, and Richard Watson.
