“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. In 1644, Descartes wrote “Principles of Philosophy”, a work that discussed the principles of nature and the laws of physics. A number of the theories in this work were borrowed by Isaac Newton in his ‘Principia’, particularly the laws of motion. ‘Principles’ was one of the first comprehensive accounts of the universe.

 

This fine 1681 printing of “Les Principes” is very rare and known for being a highly valuable printing.
