Well, it was cool until he ended up "deducing" the existence of God.

Review by

I think this is an important work to read if you're doing philosophy. I don't like Descartes' philosophy, personally, but his writing is relatively easy to read and he wrote some very important arguments that must be considered. For example, "I think therefore I am."<br/><br/>I loathe his ontological argument beyond all believing, but don't mind me. You should read this and make your own decisions. <br/><br/>Edit: Reread. Still don't like his philosophy, but it's easier to read when you read it all at once and sequentially.
