How did the relations between science and philosophy evolve throughout the seventeenth and 18th centuries? Dutch Cartesianism and the Birth of Philosophy of Science (PDF) consider this topic by contemplating the historical past of Cartesianism in Dutch universities; and its legacy in the 18th century. It considers how the disciplines of metaphysics and logic turned practical to the justification and reflection on the conceptual premises and the approaches of pure philosophy; reworking their customary roles as the science of being and as the artwork of reasoning. This alteration befell as a consequence of two elements. First; metaphysics and logic (which included rational theology) had been used to grant indubitable information of pure philosophy. Second; the debates inner to Cartesianism; together with the emergence of various philosophical world-views (resembling these of Spinoza; Hobbes; the experimental science; and Newtonianism) progressively disadvantaged such disciplines of their foundational perform; and they started to turn into types of reflection over given scientific practices; both Cartesian; experimental or Newtonian.
