Déplorant la confusion de leur agencement et magnifiant la transparence des édifices rationnels, Descartes formule le projet utopique d'un futur proche où l'homme se serait rendu "comme maître et possesseur de la nature". Relire le Discours de la méthode c'est à cet égard remonter à la source des fantasmes prométhéens de la modernité. Cependant, Descartes redevient philosophe dès lors qu'il rejoint sa chambre et nous invite, à son instar, à nous arrêter en chemin pour tester la solidité de nos certitudes. C'est à l'âge d'homme, quand le savoir accumulé obscurcit l'esprit, qu'il faut savoir s'offrir, au moins une fois en sa vie, le luxe du doute.

In his Discourse on Method he outlined the contrast between mathematics and experimental sciences, and the extent to which each one can achieve certainty. Drawing on his own work in geometry, optics, astronomy and physiology, Descartes developed the hypothetical method that characterizes modern science, and this soon came to replace the traditional techniques derived from Aristotle. Many of Descartes' most radical ideas such as the disparity between our perceptions and the realities that cause them have been highly influential in the development of modern philosophy. from http://www.abebooks.com (August 22, 2011)+-+0157995965352788ocn049295043file18500.32Descartes, RenéDiscourse on the method of rightly conducting the reason, and seeking truth in the sciences"This new translation is accompanied by a substantial introductory essay which draws on Descartes's correspondence to examine his motivation and the impact of his great work on his contemporaries.

Contrasted to the academic and cultural fads often based on the scientific methodology of the Cartesian legacy, or any other number of trendy experiments in education, Poetic Knowledge returns to the freshness and importance of first knowledge, a knowledge of the senses and the passions. "Poetic knowledge" is not the knowledge of poetry, nor is it even knowledge in the sense that we often think of today, that is, the mastery of scientific, technological, or business information. Rather, it is an intuitive, obscure, mysterious way of knowing reality, not always able to account for itself, but absolutely essential if one is ever to advance properly to the higher degrees of certainty. From Socrates to the Middle Ages, and even into the twentieth century, the case for poetic knowledge is revealed with the care of philosophical archeology. Taylor demonstrates the effectiveness of the poetic mode of education through his own observations as a teacher, and two experimental "poetic" schools in the twentieth century+-+203089642516604ocn042329782file19900.50Carr, Thomas MDescartes and the resilience of rhetoric varieties of Cartesian rhetorical theoryHistoryA careful analysis of the rhetorical thought of René Descartes and of a distinguished group of post-Cartesians.

"Among the specific topics discussed in the essays are Descartes' celebrated method, his demand for certainty in the sciences, his account of the relation of mind and body, and his conception of God's activity on the physical world."

But why did Descartes think we should take these exaggerated doubts seriously? And if we do take them seriously, how did he think any of our beliefs could ever escape them?

The book focuses on radical doctrines in these Cartesians concerning the creation of the eternal truths, the intentionality of ideas, and the soul-body union, three issues that Descartes broached but did not fully explore. In addition to relating their discussion of these issues to the views of Descartes and of Cartesians such as Malebranche and Arnauld, the book establishes that Desgabets and Regis played an important, though neglected, role in the theologically and politically charged reception of Descartes in early modern France."+-+698663670514062ocn042854394file19930.47Wolf-Devine, CeliaDescartes on seeing epistemology and visual perceptionHistory14044ocn042855646com19970.35Melehy, HassanWriting cogito Montaigne, Descartes, and the institution of the modern subjectCombining literary theory and history with detailed textual analysis, Melehy examines a series of events at the outset of modernity involving both literature and philosophy. Through the work of Michel de Montaigne and Rene Descartes, Melehy considers the question of the foundation of the human subject, in the context of contemporary debates in literature and philosophy. Montaigne, through writing, examines the many possibilities of subjective experience, and finds that the subject takes shape in writing. Descartes comes to the subject in search of a principle to circumvent the uncertainty of language - "I think, therefore I am," the cogito. But Descartes, Melehy shows, must continually depend on literary devices, on the properties of language whose effects he is so eager to escape - also deploying the devices to disguise the fact that they permeate his work+-+072089642514003ocn042854359com19870.47Sebba, GregorThe dream of DescartesHistory13772ocn456231037file19980.53Rozemond, MarleenDescartes's dualismHistoryMarleen Rozemond explicates Descartes's aim to provide a metaphysics that would accommodate mechanistic science and supplant scholasticism. Her approach includes discussion of central differences from and similarities with the scholastics and how these discriminations affected Descartes's defense of the incorporeity of the mind and the mechanistic conception of body. Confronting the question of how, in his view, mind and body are united, she examines his defense of this union on the basis of sensation.
