The Need for a Paradigm Shift and a New Cartesian System

  • Erol Başar


What is the importance of the Cartesian system in the development of science? What is the importance of philosophy in today’s science? Who are the philosophers? Charles Darwin was a philosopher. Einstein was a philosopher. Norbert Wiener and Werner Heisenberg were philosophers, but they were new Cartesian philosophers. Bergson and von Weizsäcker are relevant philosophers as well. The significance of the Cartesian system is reflected in the fact that its creator, René Descartes, is considered both a founder of modern science and as well as a pioneer of modern philosophy, which is based on empirical findings.
