About this Item

8vo. xii. 203pp. 3-4 black cloth over marbled boards with gilt lettering to spine. Collection and German translation of the renowned French philosopher's main works: Rene Descartes (1596-1650) was a philosopher, mathematician and scientist. Dubbed the "Father of Modern Philosophy", he is mainly known for the statement: "I think therefore I am". Translated and with a foreword by acclaimed German philosopher uno Fischer (see below). Minor age wear to binding. Browning throughout. Very readable and tight copy. In German. Very good condition. On Kuno Fischer (from public domain encyclopedia):"Kuno Fischer, born Ernst Kuno Berthold Fischer, (1824 - 1907) was a German philosopher. One of Fischer's most significant and lasting contributions to philosophy was the use of the empiricism/rationalism distinction in categorising philosophers, particularly those of the 17th and 18th century. These include John Locke, George Berkeley and David Hume in the empiricist category and René Descartes, Baruch Spinoza and Gottfried Leibniz in the rationalist category. Empiricism, it is said, claims that human knowledge is derived from sensation, i.e. experience, while rationalism claims that certain knowledge can be acquired before experience through pure principles. Although influential, in more recent times this distinction has been questioned as anachronistic in its failure to represent precisely the exact claims and methodologies of the philosophers it categorises.".
