Rene Descartes (1569-1650), the 'father' of modern philosophy, is without doubt one of the greatest thinkers in history: his genius lies at the core of our contemporary intellectual identity. Breaking with the conventions of his own time and suffering persecution by the Church as a consequence, Descartes in his writings - most of which are philosophical classics - attempted to answer the central questions surrounding the self, God, free-will and knowledge, using the science of thought as opposed to received wisdom based on the tenets of faith.

Descartes' writing is an odd bird for modern readers, because much of his philosophical writing has provided a crucial underpinning for modernity, much of his scientific work has been superceded. While elements of his thought-the importance of doubt, theory of the subject, et. are crucial to anyone who wants to understand any modern philosophy, his science is more historically interesting than scientifically interesting.

René Descartes (1596 - 1650) was a French philosopher, mathematician, scientist and writer of the Age of Reason. The Philosophical Works of Descartes (v. 1) by René Descartes (Author), Elizabeth S. Haldane (Translator), G. Ross (Translator). He has been called the "Father of Modern Philosophy", and much of subsequent Western philosophy can be seen as a response to his writings.

The Philosophical Works of Descartes (v. 1)
Kigul
René Descartes (1596-1650) was a French philosopher, mathematician and writer who spent most of his life in the Dutch Republic. The Cartesian coordinate system--allowing reference to a point in space as a set of numbers--was named after him, and he is considered the "father of analytical geometry." The accompanying volume of his philosophical writings is The Philosophical Works of Descartes (v. I). (Incidentally, his philosophy is called "Cartesian" because medieval philosophers "Latinized" his name to "Renatus Cartesius.")

In his Arguments Demonstrating the Existence of God he states, "God can effect whatever we clearly perceive just as we perceive it... But we clearly perceive the mind, i.e., a thinking substance, apart from the body... and vice versa... Hence, at least through the instrumentality of the Divine power, mind can exist apart from body, and body apart from mind... Hence there is a real distinction between mind and body... Here it must be noted that I employed the Divine power as a means, not because any extraordinary power was needed to effect the separation of mind and body, but because, treating as I did of God alone in what precedes, there was nothing else for me to use. But our knowledge of the real distinctiveness of two thing is unaffected by any question as to the power that disunites them." (Ph. 59)

He acknowledges, "I quite admit that is found in the first meditation and even in the others is not suited to the capacity of every understanding, and this is have avouched on every possible occasion and always shall proclaim. This was the reason why I did not discuss the same matters in the Discourse on Method... but reserved them for the Meditations which, I announced, should be read only by intellectual and educated persons." (Pg. 115-116)

He responds to an objection: "As to the passages of Scripture, I do not think that it is my part to reply to them, unless when they appear to contradict some opinion that is peculiar to me. For when my doctrine merely contains things that are common to all Christians, such as are the object of attack here, e.g., that something can be known and that human souls are not like those of animals, I should stand in dread of the charge of arrogance, if I did not prefer to content myself with the replies that have already been discovered by others, rather than devise new arguments; for I have never intermeddled with theological studies, nor do I find within me so much of the divine grace as to feel called to this sacred occupation." (Pg. 246)

He further writes to a Jesuit priest, "I have frequently protested that I did not desire to mix myself up with any theological, controversies; as inasmuch as I only treat in my philosophy of things clearly known by the light of nature. They cannot be contrary to the theology of anyone, unless this theology is manifestly opposed to the light of reason, which I know no one will allow of the theology professed by himself." (Pg. 372)

Descartes' works are part of the "Top Ten," "MUST READ" books of philosophy; anyone with even the most meager interest in philosophy should read his Discourse, and other works. However, that being said, the first volume in this series (containing both the Discourse on Method and the Meditations) contains by far the more "important" works of Descartes.
