Cartesian philosophy

René Descartes

  • French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist
  • Dubbed the father of modern western philosophy
  • Western philosophy is a response to his writings
  • In his natural philosophy, he differed from the schools on two major points: first, he rejected the splitting of corporeal substance into matter and form and second, he rejected any appeal to final ends, divine or natural
  • He explains natural phenomena by insisting on the absolute freedom of God’s act of creation

Expanded info:

His best known philosophical statement is “Cogito ergo sum” (I think, therefore I am)
