Meditations on First Philosophy By Rene Descartes

Meditations on First Philosophy

Rene Descartes

Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 73 pages in the PDF version. This translation by John Veitch was originally published in 1901.


Meditations on First Philosophy (subtitled In which the existence of God and the immortality of the soul are demonstrated) is a philosophical treatise made up of six meditations, in which Descartes first discards all belief in things that are not absolutely certain, and then tries to establish what can be known for sure. He wrote the meditations as if he had meditated for six days: each meditation refers to the last one as yesterday (In fact, Descartes began work on the Meditations in 1639.) One of the most influential philosophical texts ever written, it is widely read to this day.
