Discourse on method, and Meditations by René Descartes( Book )

1,896 editions published between 1060 and 2017 in 20 languages and held by 11,353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rene Descartes was a central figure in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century. In his Discourse on Method he outlined the contrast between mathematics and experimental sciences, and the extent to which each one can achieve certainty. Drawing on his own work in geometry, optics, astronomy and physiology, Descartes developed the hypothetical method that characterizes modern science, and this soon came to replace the traditional techniques derived from Aristotle. Many of Descartes' most radical ideas such as the disparity between our perceptions and the realities that cause them have been highly influential in the development of modern philosophy. from http://www.abebooks.com (August 22, 2011)
Meditations on first philosophy : with selections from the Objections and Replies by René Descartes( Book )

707 editions published between 1601 and 2017 in 14 languages and held by 5,658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The translation of the Meditations is taken from three sources: the second Latin edition of 1642, which was the first one printed from Descartes' own manuscript and under his own supervision, the first French translation of 1646 by Duc de Luynes, but read and approved by Descartes, and the second French translation by Clerselier. An attempt has been made in this translation to integrate these three versions into one complete and accurate edition by the use of brackets and parentheses. The reader may, by omitting the parentheses and brackets, have a translation which contains all ideas in the three versions. By omitting bracketed material, he will have a translation essentially that of the original Latin, and by omitting material in parentheses, that of the First French edition

The passions of the soul by René Descartes( Book )

432 editions published between 1601 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,038 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

L'idee d'entreprendre une edition critique des Regulce ad direction em ingenii s'est imposee a nous pendant que nous pre parions un commentaire de ce traite inacheve de Descartes. Le texte etabli par Ch. Adam nous a, plus d'une fois, inspire certains doutes, qui nous invitaient a verifier les sources. C'est ainsi que nous avons ete amene a prendre en consideration la version hollandaise du XVIIe siecle, que 1'editeur de Descartes avait completement negligee. La collation du manuscrit de Hanovre avec l' editio princeps d' Amsterdam et l' examen de la version hollandaise nous ont permis de faire des retouches, quelquefois importantes, a 1'edition Adam. N ous tenons a remercier de leurs precieux conseils les Profes seurs Dr. E.W. Beth, Dr. E. Garin, Dr. F.L.R. Sassen, Ie Dr. F. Veenstra, et tout particulierement Ie Prof. Dr. P. Dibon, dont I'infatigable assistance nous a ete tres precieuse surtout dans la derniere phase de nos travaux. Nous sommes, en outre, tres reconnaissant a M. Ie Directeur de la Niedersachsische Lan desbibliothek de Hanovre pour Ie manuscrit qu'il a mis a notre disposition, et a M. Ie Directeur de l'Universiteitsbibliotheek d' Amsterdam pour l' exemplaire de la version hollandaise dont il nous a permis de publier Ie texte. Nous devons a Madame F. van Rossum-Guyon d'avoir rendu possible la traduction en franc;ais

Renati Descartes Principia philosophiæ by René Descartes( Book )

433 editions published between 1641 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rene Descartes is perhaps most remembered for declaring, ""I think; therefore, I am."" First published in 1644, Descartes's ""Principles of Philosophy"" elucidates the meaning of those words that ushered in a new era of philosophical thought. Unlike the medieval philosophers who often began by examining the existence and nature of God in a spirit of faith, Descartes begins by reflecting upon himself as one who doubts but who nonetheless desires certain knowledge of God and the world. In setting forth the truths he discovers, Descartes hoped that his ""Principles of Philosophy"" would provide a

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

15 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 759 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

"Descartes and the Meditations will be essential reading for all students of philosophy, and for anyone coming to Descartes for the first time."--Jacket
The world and other writings by René Descartes( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 406 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
