|Paper - Abstract|
Was Descartes an occasionalist about body–body causation1? Many scholars (including Garber and Hatfield) have argued that he was. This essay examines the textual evidence against such a reading of Descartes, his discussions of force, and his doctrine of the creation of the eternal truths, and argues that Descartes was not such an occasionalist.
