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

Is it possible to be certain of anything? If so, how? Rene Descartes (1596–1650), the father of modern philosophy and founder of rational method in philosophical thought, sought the answers to these questions. In Discourse on Method, he formulated a scientific approach comprising four principles: to accept only what reason recognizes as "clear and distinct"; to analyze complex ideas by dividing them into smaller elements; to reconstruct the ideas; and to make accurate, complete enumerations of the data. In Meditations, he proceeds according to this method, exploring the mind/body distinction, the nature of truth and error, the existence of God, and the essence of material things

"Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 B.C., was a son of a medical doctor Nicomachus and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there 367-347; spent three years at the court of a former pupil Hermeias in Asia Minor and married Pythias a relation of his; after some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander, and had other students. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of Peripatetics), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works he prepared for publication are lost, the priceless ones extant being lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). I Practical. Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On Virtues and Vices. II Logical: Categories; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); Interpretation; Refutations used by Sophists; Topica. III Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV Metaphysics: on being as being. V Art: Rhetoric and Poetics. VI Other works including the Constitution of Athens; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics."--Jacket
