“It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well.”  

– René Descartes

 

René Descartes was a 17th-century French philosopher whose theories and discoveries spawned an influx of commentary and responsive writings from western philosophers. He wrote numerous studies on a variety of topics including meteorology, physics, dioptrics, mechanics, and even music.  

 

According to the ‘Printing and the Mind of Man’, 

“It is no exaggeration to say that Descartes was the first of modern philosophers and one of the first modern scientists; in both branches of learning his influence has been vast The revolution he caused can be most easily found in his reassertion of the principle (lost in the Middle Ages) that knowledge, if it is to have any value, must be intelligence and not erudition. His application of modern arithmetic to ancient geometry created the analytical geometry which is the basis of the post-Euclidean development of that science.” 

 

One of Descartes more popular treatises was ‘Passions of the Soul’. This work was a philosophical approach to human emotions or ‘passions’ and seeks to make connections on the relationships between morality and sciences. This work notably influenced 19th-century philosophers and their theories on metaphysics.
