Best known for the quote from his Meditations de prima philosophia, or Meditations on First Philosophy , "I think therefore I am," philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes also devoted much of his time to the studies of medicine, anatomy and meteorology.
Descartes is also credited with designing a machine to grind hyperbolic lenses, as part of his interest in optics. Rene Descartes was born in in La Haye, France. He began his schooling at a Jesuit college before going to Paris to study mathematics and to Poitiers in to study law.
He served in both the Dutch and Bavarian military and settled in Holland in In , he moved to Stockholm to be a philosophy tutor to Queen Christina of Sweden. He died there in Because of his general fame and philosophic study of the existence of God, some devout Catholics, thinking he would be canonized a saint, collected relics from his body as it was being transported to France for burial.
Regulae Ad Directionem Ingenii. This unique edition contains an improved version of the original Latin text, a new English translation intended to be as literal as possible and as liberal as necessary, an interpretive essay contextualizing the text historically, philologically, and philosophically, a com-prehensive index of Latin terms, a key glossary of English equivalents, and an extensive bibliography covering all aspects of Descartes' methodology.
Stephen Gaukroger has shown, in his authoritative Descartes: An Intellectual Biography , that one cannot understand Descartes without understanding the early Descartes. Therein lies the justification for this project. The edition is intended, not only for students and teachers of philosophy as well as of related disciplines such as literary and cultural criticism, but also for anyone interested in seriously reflecting on the nature, expression, and exercise of human intelligence: What is it?
How does it manifest itself? How does it function? How can one make the most of what one has of it? Is it equally distributed in all human beings? What is natural about it, and what, not? The Regulce and the Discourse The Architectonic Argument of the Regulce. Manuscripts Editions Translations of the Regulce.
