Descartes, René: A Discourse on Method. v1. 20 February 2012
Discourse on Method, (full title; Discourse on the Method of Rightly Conducting One's Reason and of Seeking Truth in the Sciences) is the work in which we find the Cartesian dictum, Je pense, donc je suis; most frequently translated as "I think, therefore I am." (The Latin equivalent, Cogito ergo sum, is found in Descartes later work, Principles of Philosophy, a synthesis of his Discourse on Method and the Meditations.) It has influenced philosophical thought since its first publication in 1637.
The text for this version was originally imported from Project Gutenberg to wikisource.org. This version is based on the WIKISOURCE version as formatted and hyper-linked by me. Let me know if you find any errors.
The cover was made from a public domain image of Portrait of René Descartes found on Wikipedia.
