Description
1694 1st ed Malebranche Philosophy Search of Truth John Locke Metaphysics



“Just as our eyes need light in order to see, our minds need ideas in order to conceive.”

– Nicolas Malebranche



A rare edition of Malebranche’s principal and most important work – “Concerning the Search after Truth”. This book would lay the foundation for all of Malebranche’s philosophical ideas and reputation. He primarily focused on human error and the existence of God within human nature. This edition also includes his “Laws of Communication” and his responses to Regis. This work was written with the sole purpose of generalizing, clarifying, and commenting on God’s miracles and actions toward man.



The book was placed on the Index of Prohibited Books in 1690 after disputes over its contents could not be settled. John Locke is known to have described Malebranche as “an acute and ingenious author” but obviously, not everyone saw his work in such light.
