Meditations on first philosophy by René Descartes ( )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 719 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
Advancement of learning ; and, Novum organum ; and, New Atlantis by Francis Bacon ( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist, lawyer, and prolific author -- Francis Bacon was a true polymath and Renaissance man, and is regarded as one of the progenitors of the school of thought known as Empiricism, as well as the scientific method. In this volume, Bacon discusses a remarkably wide-ranging array of philosophical and scientific subjects, putting the mind-boggling breadth of his knowledge on full display
Discourse on method, optics, geometry and meteorology by René Descartes ( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 59 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)

The philosophical writings of Descartes by René Descartes ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"These ... volumes provide a completely new translation of the philosophical works of Descartes, based on the best available Latin and French texts. They are intended to replace the only reasonably comprehensive selection of his works in English, by Haldane and Ross, first published in 1911. All the works included in that edition are translated here, together with a number of additional texts crucial for an understanding of Cartesian philosophy, including important material from Descartes??? scientific writings. The result should meet the widespread demand for an accurate and authoritative edition of Descartes' philosophical writings in clear and readable modern English."--Publisher's description
