Widely regarded as the father of modern Western philosophy, Descartes
sought to look beyond established ideas and create a thought system based
on reason. In this profound work he meditates on doubt, the human soul,
God, truth and the nature of existence itself. GREAT IDEAS. Throughout
history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way
we see ourselves � and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war
and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted.
They have enriched lives � and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the
works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas
shook civilization and helped make us who we are.
