Publisher Comments:

Is it possible to be certain of anything? If so, how? René Descartes (1596–1650), the father of modern philosophy and founder of rational method in philosophical thought, sought the answers to these questions. In Discourse on Method, he formulated a scientific approach comprising four principles: to accept only what reason recognizes as "clear and distinct"; to analyze complex ideas by dividing them into smaller elements; to reconstruct the ideas; and to make accurate, complete enumerations of the data. In Meditations, he proceeds according to this method, exploring the mind/body distinction, the nature of truth and error, the existence of God, and the essence of material things.

Book News Annotation:

Reprints the sections "Discourse on the method of rightly conducting the reason" and "Meditations on first philosophy" from the 1955 Dover edition of , which was a corrected reprint of the Cambridge University Press edition published in 1911. In them, Descartes considers the nature of the human mind, scientific reasoning, and theology.
