The Philosophy of Descartes

by La Trobe University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

René Descartes, the ‘father of modern philosophy’ wrote his essay Meditations  (published 1641) not long after Shakespeare published the Sonnets (1609).  The change from Shakespeare to Descartes represents the shift from the Renaissance to the era of Modernism.  The humanism of the Renaissance gives way to rationalism and a faith in the emerging sciences.
