A critical mind doesn't fall from the sky; it has to be acquired, built up and perfected. Rene' Descartes is and always will be the father of modern philosophy. Descartes' arguments inspired movies such as the Matrix and Inception and rightfully so. HIs legacy still lives on to this day. Descartes is indeed a powerhouse in regards to epistemology, and gave significant proof on how one can give reasons on their own existence.

John Cottingham

"Descartes' Meditations on First philosophy' is, indisputably, one of the greatest philosophical classics of all time."

Descartes on doubting everything

What we must do is find the truth by doubting all we can, and finding the only undoubtable thing then build knowledge based off that foundation.

"I doubt therefore I think therefore I am, the very fact that I doubt my existence, confirms my existence is a thinking thing."

This leads to truth that leads to knowledge

God exists otherwise our knowledge of the external world can only be true if God exists.

This was great! Got my course material at an incredible price and brand new too! I will definitely be back for more items as my classes progress. Very Happy with my experiences in Amazon so far. Nothing to complain about. Now my wife is getting into the act and getting electronics here too. Good work Amazon. Too bad taxes had to rear its ugly head...but not a deal breaker.

Rene Descartes' meditations still remain key tenets of modern philosophy. Easy to read. The meditations are short enough to avoid information overload.
