Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rene Descartes is famous as the philosopher who was prepared to doubt everything — even his own physical existence. Most people also know that he said, "I think, therefore I am, " even if they are not always sure why he said this, or what he really meant. Introducing Descartes explains what Descartes doubted, and why he is usually called the father of modem philosophy.
