The Meditations, one of the key texts of Western philosophy, is the most widely studied of all Descartes' writings. This authoritative translation by John Cottingham, taken from the much acclaimed three-volume Cambridge edition of the Philosophical Writings of Descartes, is based upon the best available texts and presents Descartes' central metaphysical writings in clear, readable modern English. As well as the complete text of the Meditations, the reader will find a thematic abridgement of the Objections and Replies (which were originally published with the Meditations) containing Descartes' replies to his critics. These extracts, specially selected for the present volume, indicate the main philosophical difficulties which occurred to Descartes' contemporaries and show how Descartes developed and clarified his arguments in response. This edition contains a new comprehensive introduction to Descartes' philosophy by John Cottingham and the classic introductory essay on the Meditations by Bernard Williams

The world and other writings by René Descartes( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 2,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Descartes' The World offers the most comprehensive vision of the nature of the world since Aristotle, and is crucial for an understanding of his later writings, in particular the Meditations and Principles of Philosophy. Above all, it provides an insight into how Descartes conceived of natural philosophy before he started to reformulate his doctrines in terms of a skeptically driven epistemology. Of its two parts, The Treatise on Light introduced the first comprehensive, quantitative version of a mechanistic natural philosophy, supplying a theory of matter, physical optics, and a cosmology, and The Treatise on Man provided the first comprehensive mechanist physiology. This volume also includes translations of material important for an understanding of the work: related sections from The Dioptrics and The Meteors, and the first English translation of the complete text of The Description of the Human Body."--Jacket
Principles of philosophy by René Descartes( Book )

475 editions published between 1641 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Principles of Philosophy was written in Latin by Ren ̌Descartes. Published in 1644, it was intended to replace Aristotle's philosophy and traditional Scholastic Philosophy.

The passions of the soul by René Descartes( Book )

301 editions published between 1649 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 2,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avec ce traité Descartes démontre que les passions sont du domaine de la nature et donc du corps. Celui-ci par son lien à l'esprit permet à ce dernier de les éprouver. Selon le philosophe les passions ne sauraient être mauvaises pour l'esprit, néanmoins elles se doivent d'être jugulées à l'aide d'une morale, opérée par le libre arbitre capable de les juger
The philosophical works of Descartes by René Descartes( Book )

57 editions published between 1911 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this edition is to present to English readers all the philosophical works of Descartes which were originally intended for publication. More than one valuable translation of the treatises which give a general view of Descartes' system has already appeared. But certain others which are quite indispensable for a thorough comprehension of his views have not yet been made accessible to English readers. The chief of these are probably the "Rules for the Direction of Understanding" and the "Passions of the Soul."

The geometry of René Descartes : [with a facsimile of the first edition] by René Descartes( Book )

48 editions published between 1925 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in English in 1925, The Geometry of Rene Descartes brings to audiences one of the most revolutionary works in mathematics since Euclid. Descartes changed the field of mathematics with his invetion of analytic geometry. He loved Euclid, because Euclidean geometry offered truth and certainty, and all of its conclusions were drawn from irrefutable axioms. Descartes wanted to have this kind of certainty in all areas of life, and so he sought to answer questions about the real world using algebra combined with geometry. This produced the Cartesian plane, which suddenly allowed equations to be graphed. It was a revolution. In this book, mathematicians can follow a true genius as he explains his mathematical principles and truths. -- from back cover

Descartes, his moral philosophy and psychology by René Descartes( Book )

15 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents material, most of it for the first time in English, that is requisite for any study of Descartes' moral philosophy and psychology. Descartes' reflections on moral philosophy and psychology were largely developed in correspondence with Princess Elisabeth (of Bohemia), Queen Christina (of Sweden), and Pierre Chanut (French Ambassador to Sweden). The portion of that correspondence dealing with moral philosophy and psychology thus constitutes the core of the present volume. I have also included the preface to the French version of Descartes' Principles of Philosophy. The Preface contains his views on education

Discurso del método by René Descartes( Book )

221 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

René Descartes, filósofo y matemático francés, fue una de las personalidades más destacadas de su tiempo. Fue el primero en plantear un pensamiento filosófico apartado del teológico, para lo cual introdujo en su sistema lo que él llamó "duda metódica". La duda indica que somos seres pensantes, de donde el filósofo extrae su célebre fórmula Cógito, ergo sum (Pienso, luego existo). Este es el principio básico de su doctrina, que expone principalmente en las Meditaciones filosóficas y el libro que hoy presentamos: El discurso del método 1637. Otras obras también famosa: Principios de la filosofía, Tratado de las pasiones
