Principles of philosophy by René Descartes( Book )

497 editions published between 1641 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 2,525 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
The passions of the soul by René Descartes( Book )

350 editions published between 1649 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,399 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 world and other writings by René Descartes( )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 2,327 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

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

72 editions published between 1925 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,446 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

15 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 760 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
