It Took Long Enough....

Descartes has finally won out over Voetius (in French). In March the University of Utrecht lifted its 363-year-old condemnation of the teaching of the works of Descartes. (hat-tip: Philosophical Fortnights). Honestly, I hadn't even realized the condemnation was even still in place; it's amazing how long this sort of thing sometimes lasts.
