René Descartes: Meditations on First Philosophy (1641)

  • Julian Baggini

Abstract

Descartes’s Meditations is one of the most important works in the rationalist tradition of philosophy. Rationalism is characterised by a belief that all the major problems of philosophy — and perhaps all the major intellectual problems of the world, full stop — can be answered by the application of rational thought alone.
