Someone needs to sort out this page. The French version is even weaker. I don´t know enough, maybe I'll put an appeal in the Descartes section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs) 18:54, 9 May 2006
It seems to me that such sections as "Philosophical Writings" are a bit biased. Expressions such as "no speculative value" are a little harsh--and a little risky--for an encyclopedia article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 11:50, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. Firstly the suggestion of 'ignorance of Aristotle's own writing' is not only negative but what relevance it has is only passing - as it was concerned with the Aristotelean tradition as it was being presented in early modern europe - where the writing that he was reacting against were obligatory and seen as the height of natural philosophy in every institution of learning. Weird desire to decontextualise and defend Descartes here, which again - echoing the previous commenter - shows in phrases like "no speculative value" and "crudest empiricism". His advocacy of empiricism was a completely valid attack on Cartesian philosophy which offered thought experiments as truth (but didn't maintain them for other thought experiments.) and such crude reduction isn't befitting of this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 19:00, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
"als" is not correct in the title of Feuerbach's book. The complete title is: Geschichte der neuern Philosophie von Bacon von Verulam bis Benedict Spinoza Ref.: en-wikipedia, de-wikipedia (art. Feuerbach). 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:30, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
