Descartes' The World offers the most comprehensive vision of the nature of the world since Aristotle, and is crucial for an understanding of his later writings, in particular the Meditations and Principles of Philosophy. Above all, it provides an insight into how Descartes conceived of natural philosophy before he started to reformulate his doctrines in terms of a sceptically driven epistemology. Of its two parts, the Treatise on Light introduced the first comprehensive, quantitative version of a mechanistic natural philosophy, supplying a theory of matter, a physical optics, and a cosmology. The Treatise on Man provided the first comprehensive mechanist physiology. This volume also includes translations of material important for an understanding of the work: related sections from the Dioptrics and the Meteors, and an English translation of the complete text of The Description of the Human Body

Principles of philosophy by René Descartes( Book )

Rene Descartes is perhaps most remembered for declaring, ""I think; therefore, I am."" First published in 1644, Descartes's ""Principles of Philosophy"" elucidates the meaning of those words that ushered in a new era of philosophical thought. Unlike the medieval philosophers who often began by examining the existence and nature of God in a spirit of faith, Descartes begins by reflecting upon himself as one who doubts but who nonetheless desires certain knowledge of God and the world. In setting forth the truths he discovers, Descartes hoped that his ""Principles of Philosophy"" would provide a
Regulae ad directionem ingenii by René Descartes( Book )
9 editions published between 1930 and 1965 in French and Latin and held by 71 libraries worldwide
L'idee d'entreprendre une edition critique des Regulce ad direction em ingenii s'est imposee a nous pendant que nous pre parions un commentaire de ce traite inacheve de Descartes. Le texte etabli par Ch. Adam nous a, plus d'une fois, inspire certains doutes, qui nous invitaient a verifier les sources. C'est ainsi que nous avons ete amene a prendre en consideration la version hollandaise du XVIIe siecle, que 1'editeur de Descartes avait completement negligee. La collation du manuscrit de Hanovre avec l' editio princeps d' Amsterdam et l' examen de la version hollandaise nous ont permis de faire des retouches, quelquefois importantes, a 1'edition Adam. N ous tenons a remercier de leurs precieux conseils les Profes seurs Dr. E.W. Beth, Dr. E. Garin, Dr. F.L.R. Sassen, Ie Dr. F. Veenstra, et tout particulierement Ie Prof. Dr. P. Dibon, dont I'infatigable assistance nous a ete tres precieuse surtout dans la derniere phase de nos travaux. Nous sommes, en outre, tres reconnaissant a M. Ie Directeur de la Niedersachsische Lan desbibliothek de Hanovre pour Ie manuscrit qu'il a mis a notre disposition, et a M. Ie Directeur de l'Universiteitsbibliotheek d' Amsterdam pour l' exemplaire de la version hollandaise dont il nous a permis de publier Ie texte. Nous devons a Madame F. van Rossum-Guyon d'avoir rendu possible la traduction en franc;ais
