Descartes : his life and thought by Geneviève Rodis-Lewis( Book )
69 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,655 libraries worldwide
This major intellectual biography illuminates the personal and historical events of Descartes's life, from his birth and early years in France to his death in Sweden, his burial, and the fate of his remains. Concerned not only with historical events but also with the development of Descartes's personality, Rodis-Lewis speculates on the effect childhood impressions may have had on his philosophy and scientific theories. She considers in detail his friendships, particularly with Isaac Beeckman and Marin Mersenne. Primarily on the basis of his private correspondence, Rodis-Lewis gives a thorough and balanced discussion of his personality. The Descartes she depicts is by turns generous and unforgiving, arrogant and open-minded, loyal in his friendships but eager for the isolation his work required. Drawing on Descartes's writings and his public and private correspondence, she corrects the errors of earlier biographies and clarifies many obscure episodes in the philosopher's life

Avec ce traité Descartes démontre que les passions sont du domaine de la nature et donc du corps. Celui-ci par son lien à l'esprit permet à ce dernier de les éprouver. Selon le philosophe les passions ne sauraient être mauvaises pour l'esprit, néanmoins elles se doivent d'être jugulées à l'aide d'une morale, opérée par le libre arbitre capable de les juger

"It is evident that God can have no other end of acting than Himself; that he cannot create Spirits but to know and love Him that he can neither give them any knowledge, nor impress upon them any love, but what is for, and tends to Himself; but he might have refused to unite our bodies those spirits which He has united. Therefore the relation of our minds to God is natural, necessary, and absolutely indispensable, but their relation to our bodies, though natural, is not of absolute necessity, nor of indispensable obligation. It is not difficulty to make out to attentive persons, and such as are skilled in true philosophy: for they need only be put in mind, that since the will of God regulates the nature of all things, it is more congenial to the nature of the soul to be united with God, that to be united to the body. First, we shall speak of the errors of the senses; secondly of the errors of imagination; thirdly, of the errors of pure intellect; fourthly, of the errors of our inclinations; and fifthly, of the errors of the passions. And thus, having made an essay to rid of the soul of the error which she's subject to, we shall, lastly, lay down a general method to conduct her in the search for truth"--Preface.

Meditations on first philosophy : with selections from the Objections and Replies by René Descartes( Book )
45 editions published between 1944 and 1978 in 4 languages and held by 216 libraries worldwide
The translation of the Meditations is taken from three sources: the second Latin edition of 1642, which was the first one printed from Descartes' own manuscript and under his own supervision, the first French translation of 1646 by Duc de Luynes, but read and approved by Descartes, and the second French translation by Clerselier. An attempt has been made in this translation to integrate these three versions into one complete and accurate edition by the use of brackets and parentheses. The reader may, by omitting the parentheses and brackets, have a translation which contains all ideas in the three versions. By omitting bracketed material, he will have a translation essentially that of the original Latin, and by omitting material in parentheses, that of the First French edition
