Ostatni post z poprzedniej strony:Jedna z najnowszych opinii o mojej książce: “I liked your book. It was very readable with some unexpected plot twists, and your sketches of the philosophers you discuss show the careful research that went into them. Most readers would agree with your sketch of Descartes but I have a different view of him. He lived in something like the repressive atmosphere in which your book takes place and I think he felt a need to disguise his maverick views, those that didn’t accord with the Aristotelian Catholics who arrested Galileo and who held the intellectual life of France in their grip. Accordingly, I think his writings were more devious than you give him credit (or blame) for. I’m attaching an article explaining my reasons.” – Prof. Kenneth Dorter, College of Arts, University of Guelph, Canada.
Ta opinia sprawiła mi szczególną satysfakcję, ponieważ po raz pierwszy profesor filozofii z anglosaskiego kręgu kulturowego wypowiedział się o Philosopher's Crystal, a do tego szybko przeczytał tę pracę, w cztery dni
Porozmawiałem z prof. Dorterem o Kartezjuszu. Profesor stwierdził m.in.: "I guess we can agree that you have a higher opinion of Descartes' piety than I do, and I have a higher opinion of his sense of humor than you do."
