Rene Descartes

Meditation on First Philosophy

“Meditations on First Philosophy” is made up of six meditations, in which Descartes first discards all belief in things that are not absolutely certain, and then tries to establish what can be known for sure. He wrote the meditations as if he had meditated for six days: each meditation refers to the last one as “yesterday”. “Meditations on First Philosophy” is one of the most influential philosophical texts ever written and it is widely read to this day.

    nd there are besides so many other things in the mind itself that contribute to the illustration of its nature, that those dependent on the body, to which I have here referred, scarcely merit to be taken into account.
