It would be hard to exaggerate the impact of cartesianism on social and political and moral thought during the century and a half following publication of his discourse on method and his meditations. Besides the university of iowa, he has taught quantitative methods courses at the inter-university consortium for political and social research (icpsr, university of michigan); the european consortium for political research (ecpr, university of essex, england); the tarki summer school on statistical models (university of budapest, hungary); and the ecole d'eté de lille (university of lille, france).

A 14-year update to a reference work whose first edition was called by its reviewers, 'the largest corpus of knowledge abou the social and behavioral sciences in existence' and 'the atomic bomb of reference works. He has edited the sage green monograph series quantitative applications in the social sciences (qass) since 1988. In their respective ways, the philosophers hegel, coleridge, and emerson were as struck by the consequences of the revolutions as were any social scientists.
