With this volume, we draw attention to the diversity of pre-Newtonian examples of empirical science by examining these followers of Descartes, thereby filling a gap in the current scholarship. The volume will cover various disciplines (e.g., physics, chemistry, medicine, and psychology), various national contexts (e.g., French, Dutch, German and English) and over twenty-five early modern figures, such as Robert Desgabets, Pierre-Sylvain Régis, Henricus Regius, Jacques Rohault, and Burchard de Volder (see appendix for full list). The collection will include work of junior and well-established scholars from the international community. All chapters submitted to this volume will represent new and original work by experts in Cartesian philosophy. The book begins with an introduction, coauthored by the editors, indicating how the subsequent chapters contribute to the more recent challenges to the traditional narrative of early modern natural philosophy, specifically, the Cartesians discussed in the volume fail to fit neatly into the rationalist - empiricist bifurcation and provide historical evidence against the Kuhnian notion of incommensurability between two competing paradigms. The contributed chapters will be divided into two sections, covering some of the most important issues related to the reception of Cartesian philosophy.
