Central Readings is a survey introduction and overview of modern philosophy (DesCartes, Kant, Spinoza, etc.) and focuses on the origin of thought, reason, and existence. While the readings are interesting, they don't provide a holistic representation of these philosophers or of their works. While I don't expect to read all of DesCartes' essays in a survey text, it would be nice to see at a few essays in their entirety. Nonetheless, this is an excellent introduction for those who want to explore Western Modern thought.
