Based on his nimble translation of the verses and close analysis, Watson's short answer to whether Descartes engendered the verses for the Queen of Sweden's much-studied court ballet La Naissance de la Paix (The Birth of Peace) is "probably not." However, Watson finds evidence supporting the idea the French philosopher at least dabbled in Corneille, and sufficient evidence through careful reading of texts clearly attributable to Descartes to construct a cogent political philosophy.
