Discourse On Reason

Discourse On The Method Of Rightly Conducting The Reason, And Seeking Truth In The Sciences

by
Rene Descartes

This work is one of the most influential in history. The famous phrase, "COGITO ERGO SUM" (I think, therefore I am) is a central theme. Descartes' beliefs on that dual nature of mind and body, and his emphasis on the role of doubt in all inquiry, formed the basis for centuries of science and social thought.

This etext was created by Ilana and Greg Newby. They used a Mac IIci and Apple One Flatbed Scanner donated by Apple. Caere text scanning and character recognition software (OmniPage) was used. Greg is a professor in the U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Grad. School of Library and Information Science. Ilana is a reference librarian at the Urbana Free Library. Thanks to Apple and Caere for their donations and to the Computer Service Office of the University of Illinois for their unofficial support.
