Important, though not well read.

Descartes' Meditations are probably one of the more important philosophical reads a student should work through. Though this book takes the listener through them (all six)...unless you're really into learning, or being exposed to this work...Paul Hecht just doesn't do it justice.

headings aren't optional?

descarte arguments are flawed and his replies to the objections unsatisfactory. none the less this work is important and the reading is good.
