The aim of the paper is to offer a new interpretation of the role of Cartesian physics in the scientific revolution. The author argues that many components of Newton's theory of motion are of Cartesian origin, and the Cartesian system was an important stage in the development of a modern science. If this interpretation is correct, then the philosophical side of the Cartesian system can be seen as a mere residuum of the Cartesian physics. When taken separately, as usually done in philosophy, Descartes' philosophical ideas are easily misunderstood and misinterpreted.
