Rene Descartes (1569-1650) the ‘father’ of modern philosophy is without doubt one of the greatest thinkers in history: his genius lies at the core of our contemporary intellectual identity. Breaking with the conventions of his own time and suffering persecution by the Church as a consequence Descartes in his writings – most of which are philosophical classics – attempted to answer the central questions surrounding the self God free-will and knowledge using the science of thought as opposed to received wisdom based on the tenets of faith. This edition the most comprehensive one-volume selection of Descartes’ works available in English includes his great essay Discourse on Method.
