"the definitive book for ethicists"
In this work, Descartes' metaphysics and epistemology are clearly stated and assiduously analyzed. It is shown that Descartes' epistemic foundationalism is tenable, and that his mind-body dualism is correct if taken to concern the relationship of mentalistic (mind-related) data to physicalistic data, even though it is incorrect if taken to concern the relationship of mind per se to body per se. Descartes' analysis of causation is shown to be correct, notwithstanding the copious criticism to which centuries have subjected it.

"Realistic spy caper."
The grounds for inductive inference, and therewith for all forms epistemic realism, are identified. Skepticism concerning induction is shown to be incompatible with the datum that our experiences are temporally collocated and otherwise cohesive. Skepticism concerning the veridicality of our senses is shown to fail for the same reason.
