Descartes : his life and thought by Geneviève Rodis-Lewis( Book )
30 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 1,174 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
Descartes et le rationalisme by Geneviève Rodis-Lewis( Book )
54 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 440 libraries worldwide
Les passions de l'âme by René Descartes( Book )
41 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 361 libraries worldwide
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
Meditations on first philosophy : with selections from the Objections and Replies by René Descartes( Book )
61 editions published between 1944 and 1978 in 5 languages and held by 304 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

Descartes : biographie by Geneviève Rodis-Lewis( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 276 libraries worldwide
"Descartes a-t-il vraiment écrit un traité d'escrime dans sa jeunesse? Comment a-t-il vécu la condamnation de Galilée? Pourquoi a-t-il renoncé à la vie militaire? Qui était Hélène Jans, modeste servante devenue sa compagne? Comment a-t-il écrit le Discours de la méthode et les Méditations métaphysiques, révolutionné les principes géométriques, les lois du mouvement, l'algèbre, la physique? Qui était, au fond, René Descartes? Nourrie d'archives inédites, l'enquête menée par Geneviève Rodis-Lewis épouse le rythme de cette vie menée à toute allure, dressant le portrait d'un homme tiraillé par des aspirations contradictoires, l'amour, la guerre, l'aventure, l'étude. Un Descartes passionné jusqu'au bout par la recherche de la vérité philosophique, la quête métaphysique, l'avenir de la science. La biographie vraie de celui qui déclarait "s'avancer masqué""--Page 4 of cover
Discours de la méthode : suivi d'extraits de la Dioptrique, des Mʹetʹeores, de la Vie de Descartes, par Baillet, du Monde, de l'Homme et de Lettres by René Descartes( Book )
38 editions published between 1966 and 1998 in French and Undetermined and held by 269 libraries worldwide
Manifeste de la philosophie cartésienne, le Discours de la méthode (1637) est tout à la fois le récit d'un cheminement intellectuel et l'illustration magistrale d'un projet : fonder l'unité des sciences et constituer une science universelle. Foyer d'une œuvre foisonnante, le Discours revendique les droits de la raison contre toute tradition et toute autorité. C'est pourquoi il assigne à la philosophie une tâche : s'élever à la certitude. 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"
