Tietoja tekijästä

Best known for the quote from his Meditations de prima philosophia, or Meditations on First Philosophy (1641), "I think therefore I am," philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes also devoted much of his time to the studies of medicine, anatomy and meteorology. Part of his Discourse on the näytä lisää Method for Rightly Conducting One's Reason and Searching for the Truth in the Sciences (1637) became the foundation for analytic geometry. Descartes is also credited with designing a machine to grind hyperbolic lenses, as part of his interest in optics. Rene Descartes was born in 1596 in La Haye, France. He began his schooling at a Jesuit college before going to Paris to study mathematics and to Poitiers in 1616 to study law. He served in both the Dutch and Bavarian military and settled in Holland in 1629. In 1649, he moved to Stockholm to be a philosophy tutor to Queen Christina of Sweden. He died there in 1650. Because of his general fame and philosophic study of the existence of God, some devout Catholics, thinking he would be canonized a saint, collected relics from his body as it was being transported to France for burial.

Lyhyt elämäkerta
René Descartes, the French philosopher, mathematician, and writer, is known as the father of modern philosophy and the father of analytical geometry. He was a pioneer of rationalist thought and a key figure in the Scientific Revolution of the 16th-17th centuries in Europe; his influence is still felt today. He's perhaps best known in our day for the statement, "cogito ergo sum" (I think, therefore I am), found in his Discourse on the Method (1637) and Principles of Philosophy (1644).

Even though he purports to sweep the slate clean and start from scratch it doesn't feel like it. He starts with "I think therefore i am" and i am quite content with that but then out of nowhere he produces perfection, imperfection, dependency, composition and other concepts which without first analysing and defining he uses to construct God and other things. That really baffled me for it didn't feel at all like a rigorous approach. Though when i think about it it doesn't seem possible to define things without having some things already defined so the whole clean slate approach is not possible in the absolute. He had to start somewhere, with some precepts but i just don't like the precepts he chose for start. Too much was presupposed for my liking.
Still the book was delightful especially for the glimpses into Rene's life and his struggles around philosophising and publication.

Era casi una relectura, pues al menos en parte lo leí en el colegio y me ha gustado mucho refrescarlo. Lo tengo lleno de anotaciones pues es un texto cortito, que parece anodino, pero está bastante cargado de reflexiones que me marcaron mucho en su época y de alguna forma se han incorporado a mi manera de pensar, aunque no recordase de dónde venían. Por ejemplo, que la única forma de salir de un bosque cuando te has perdido, que es caminar en línea recta sin desviarse ni preocuparse de más hasta salir.

Ahora que he encontrado el camino, creo que es un libro que siempre tendré a mano.
