Descartes is often regarded as the first thinker to emphasize the use of reason to develop the natural sciences. For him the philosophy was a thinking system that embodied all knowledge, as he related in a letter to a French translator: René Descartes was born in La Haye en Touraine (now Descartes, Indre-et-Loire), France, on 31 March 1596. His mother, Jeanne Brochard, died soon after giving birth to him, and so he was not expected to survive. Descartes's father, Joachim, was a member of the Parlement of Brittany at Rennes.:22 René lived with his grandmother and with his great-uncle. Although the Descartes family was Roman Catholic, the Poitou region was controlled by the Protestant Huguenots. In 1607, late because of his fragile health, he entered the Jesuit Collège Royal Henry-Le-Grand at La Flèche, where he was introduced to mathematics and physics, including Galileo's work. After graduation in 1614, he studied for two years (1615–16) at the University of Poitiers, earning a Baccalauréat and Licence in canon and civil law in 1616, in accordance with his father's wishes that he should become a lawyer. From there he moved to Paris. René Descartes was a mathematician, philosopher, and scientist. He developed rules for deductive reasoning, developed a system for using letters as mathematical variables, and discovered how to plot points on a plane called the Cartesian plane. Without Descartes's work, the fields of mathematics, philosophy, and science might look quite different today.
Descartes, influenced by the automatons on display throughout the city of Paris, began to investigate the connection between the mind and body, and how the two interact. His main influences for dualism were theology and physics. The theory on the dualism of mind and body is Descartes's signature doctrine and permeates other theories he advanced. Known as Cartesian dualism (or Mind-Body Dualism), his theory on the separation between the mind and the body went on to influence subsequent Western philosophies. In Meditations on First Philosophy, Descartes attempted to demonstrate the existence of God and the distinction between the human soul and the body. Humans are a union of mind and body; thus Descartes's dualism embraced the idea that mind and body are distinct but closely joined. While many contemporary readers of Descartes found the distinction between mind and body difficult to grasp, he thought it was entirely straightforward. Descartes employed the concept of modes, which are the ways in which substances exist. In Principles of Philosophy, Descartes explained, "we can clearly perceive a substance apart from the mode which we say differs from it, whereas we cannot, conversely, understand the mode apart from the substance". To perceive a mode apart from its substance requires an intellectual abstraction, which Descartes explained as follows: . René Descartes was like that. He was a philosopher, academic, mathematician, and scientist. Descartes also made contributions to the field of optics. He showed by using geometric construction and the law of refraction (also known as Descartes's law or more commonly Snell's law) that the angular radius of a rainbow is 42 degrees (i.e., the angle subtended at the eye by the edge of the rainbow and the ray passing from the sun through the rainbow's centre is 42°). He also independently discovered the law of reflection, and his essay on optics was the first published mention of this law. René Descartes war eine bemerkenswerte Persönlichkeit. Er beschloss schon in jungen Jahren, sein Leben ganz der Wissenschaft zu widmen. Im Discours de la méthode von 1637 findet man nicht nur die Grundlagen seiner Philosophie (Cogito, ergo sum) Covering both the history of mathematics and of philosophy, Descartess Mathematical Thought reconstructs the intellectual career of Descartes most comprehensively and originally in a global perspective including the history of early modern China and Japan

Descartes laid the foundation for 17th-century continental rationalism, later advocated by Spinoza and Leibniz, and was later opposed by the empiricist school of thought consisting of Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. Leibniz, Spinoza, and Descartes were all well-versed in mathematics as well as philosophy, and Descartes and Leibniz contributed greatly to science as well. Descartes's Meditations on First Philosophy (1641) continues to be a standard text at most university philosophy departments. Descartes's influence in mathematics is equally apparent; the Cartesian coordinate system was named after him. He is credited as the father of analytical geometry, the bridge between algebra and geometry—used in the discovery of infinitesimal calculus and analysis. Descartes was also one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution. In 1918, Descartes joined the States Army of Dutch in Breda. There he also studied military engineering and as he felt encouraged he furthered his studies in mathematics. Furthermore, he met Isaac Beeckman, principal of a Dordrecht school, who collaborated with him on several science projects. They both believed that it was necessary to create a way to link mathematics and physics. Descartes' multiplicative theory of equations in the Géométrie (1637) systematically treats equations as polynomials set equal to zero, bringing out relations between equations, roots, and polynomial factors. We here consider this theory as a response to Peter Roth's suggestions in Arithmetica Philosophica (1608), notably in his seventh-degree problem set Descartes was born in La Haye en Touraine, France on March 31, 1596. His mother died when he was very young, so he and his brothers were sent to live with his grandmother. His father believed that a good education was important, so Descartes was sent off to boarding school at a young age. With the interpretation of man as subiectum, Descartes creates the metaphysical presupposition for future anthropology of every kind and tendency.
In 1619, Descartes developed four rules for deductive reasoning (or rational, scientific thinking). He used rules based on mathematical principles but applied them to all of the sciences.

In Meditations Descartes invokes his causal adequacy principle to support his trademark argument for the existence of God, quoting Lucretius in defence: "Ex nihilo nihil fit", meaning "Nothing comes from nothing" (Lucretius). Granted, neither Descartes nor Lucretius originated the philosophical claim, appearing as it does in the classical metaphysics of Plato and Aristotle. Journal für reine und angewandte Mathematik 77 , 258-62. In his Gesammelte Abhandlungen, 145-8. English translation by W. Ewald in Ewald (1996), 2:840-43 Initially, Descartes arrives at only a single first principle: I think. Thought cannot be separated from me, therefore, I exist (Discourse on the Method and Principles of Philosophy). Most notably, this is known as cogito ergo sum (English: "I think, therefore I am"). Therefore, Descartes concluded, if he doubted, then something or someone must be doing the doubting; therefore, the very fact that he doubted proved his existence. "The simple meaning of the phrase is that if one is skeptical of existence, that is in and of itself proof that he does exist." These two first principles—I think and I exist—were later confirmed by Descartes's clear and distinct perception (delineated in his Third Meditation): that I clearly and distinctly perceive these two principles, Descartes reasoned, ensures their indubitability. Descartes's dualism of mind and matter implied a concept of human beings. A human was according to Descartes a composite entity of mind and body. Descartes gave priority to the mind and argued that the mind could exist without the body, but the body could not exist without the mind. In Meditations Descartes even argues that while the mind is a substance, the body is composed only of "accidents". But he did argue that mind and body are closely joined: J F Scott, The Scientific Work of René Descartes (1987).

pioneers of the Scientific Revolution, such as Galileo Galilei , René Descartes , and Johannes Kepler , suggested seeking for mathematical laws of nature and conceived physics as a mathe - matized science. Galileo 's law of freely falling bodies, Descartes 's (or Snel 's) law of refractio Mechanical explanations of gravitation (or kinetic theories of gravitation) are attempts to explain the action of gravity by aid of basic mechanical processes, such as pressure forces caused by pushes, without the use of any action at a distance.These theories were developed from the 16th until the 19th century in connection with the aether.However, such models are no longer regarded as viable.
RENE DESCARTES (1596-1650), French philosopher, was born at La Haye, in Touraine, midway between Tours and Poitiers, on the 31st of March 1596, and died at Stockholm on the 1th of February 1650. The house where he was born is still shown, and a metairie about 3 m. off retains the name of Les Cartes. His family on both sides was of Poitevin descent. Joachim Descartes, his father, having. Christia Mercer posits that the most influential ideas in Meditations on First Philosophy were lifted from Spanish author and Roman Catholic nun Teresa of Ávila, who, fifty years earlier, published The Interior Castle, concerning the role of philosophical reflection in intellectual growth.

Für die Ausübung öffentlicher Ämter, die er anstrebte, war darüber hinaus eine militärische Laufbahn Voraussetzung. So trat DESCARTES zunächst bei MORITZ VON NASSAU, später bei MAXIMILIAN VON BAYERN in den Kriegsdienst und nahm bis 1621 am 30-jährigen Krieg (u. a. an der Schlacht am Weißen Berge bei Prag) teil. Anschließend bereiste er mehrere europäische Länder, sammelte Erfahrungen und Wissen und begann dann, sich intensiv mit Philosophie, Physik und Mathematik zu beschäftigen.Descartes concludes that he can be certain that he exists because he thinks. But in what form? He perceives his body through the use of the senses; however, these have previously been unreliable. So Descartes determines that the only indubitable knowledge is that he is a thinking thing. Thinking is what he does, and his power must come from his essence. Descartes defines "thought" (cogitatio) as "what happens in me such that I am immediately conscious of it, insofar as I am conscious of it". Thinking is thus every activity of a person of which the person is immediately conscious. He gave reasons for thinking that waking thoughts are distinguishable from dreams, and that one's mind cannot have been "hijacked" by an evil demon placing an illusory external world before one's senses.
CYCLOID (from Gr. KuKAos, circle, and Ethos, form), in geometry, the curve traced out by a point carried on a circle which rolls along a straight line. The name cycloid is now restricted to the curve described when the tracing-point is on the circumference of the circle; if the point is either within or without the circle the curves are generally termed trochoids, but they are also known as. In an anthropocentric revolution, the human being is now raised to the level of a subject, an agent, an emancipated being equipped with autonomous reason. This was a revolutionary step that established the basis of modernity, the repercussions of which are still being felt: the emancipation of humanity from Christian revelational truth and Church doctrine; humanity making its own law and taking its own stand. In modernity, the guarantor of truth is not God anymore but human beings, each of whom is a "self-conscious shaper and guarantor" of their own reality. In that way, each person is turned into a reasoning adult, a subject and agent, as opposed to a child obedient to God. This change in perspective was characteristic of the shift from the Christian medieval period to the modern period, a shift that had been anticipated in other fields, and which was now being formulated in the field of philosophy by Descartes.

Biography - Who is Descartes. René Descartes has been dubbed the Father of Modern Philosophy, but he was also one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution of the 17th Century, and is sometimes considered the first of the modern school of mathematics. As a young man, he found employment for a time as a soldier (essentially as a mercenary in the pay of various forces, both. Born in La Haye en Touraine, France on 31 March 1596, Descartes belonged to a noble Roman Catholic family. His father was a member of the Parlement of Brittany at Rennes, while his mother died early in a childbirth. Hence, he lived with his grandparents. Descartes as a child suffered from bad health, therefore he was enrolled at the Jesuit Collège Royal Henry-Le-Grand. There he studied Galileo’s work, mathematics and physics. He graduated in 1614 and afterwards studied for two more years receiving a Licence in Civil Law and Canon and Baccalauréat honoring his father’s wishes to study law. François Viète's revolution in algebra François Viète is considered by many historians to be the founder of modern algebra, but his work has not received the academic attention it deserves. Professor Jeffrey Oaks from the University of Indianapolis seeks to redress this imbalance Descartes was also the first mathematician to assign the letters from the early alphabet (like a, b, c) to represent data and later alphabet letters (like x, y, z) to represent variables. If you haven't started doing math with letters yet, you probably will soon. You can thank Descartes for that!
French theorist who developed the mechanical philosophy, which was highly influential until superseded by Newton's methodology. He believed that matter had no real qualities, but was simply the "brute stuff'' which occupied space. He divided reality into the res cognitas (consciousness, mind) and res extensa (matter, extension). His mechanical philosophy led him to believe that the universe is a plenum in which no vacuum can exist. In Traité de l'homme (Treatise on Man) (1664) and Passions de l'âme (Passions of the Soul) (1649), he expounded the view that an animal was an automaton lacking both sensation and self-awareness, and that only man was endowed with a soul. He generalized Harvey's mechanical interpretation of circulation, believing that the heart is an automatic mechanical pump. Descartes remains were transferred from Stockholm to Paris in 1666, and buried in Sainte-Geneviève-du-Mont. In 1818, when the cof ﬁ n was opened in order to rebury the remains in the churc
Humans should seek the sovereign good that Descartes, following Zeno, identifies with virtue, as this produces a solid blessedness or pleasure. For Epicurus the sovereign good was pleasure, and Descartes says that, in fact, this is not in contradiction with Zeno's teaching, because virtue produces a spiritual pleasure, that is better than bodily pleasure. Regarding Aristotle's opinion that happiness depends on the goods of fortune, Descartes does not deny that this good contributes to happiness but remarks that they are in great proportion outside one's own control, whereas one's mind is under one's complete control. The moral writings of Descartes came at the last part of his life, but earlier, in his Discourse on the Method he adopted three maxims to be able to act while he put all his ideas into doubt. This is known as his "Provisional Morals". And so something that I thought I was seeing with my eyes is grasped solely by the faculty of judgment which is in my mind.:109 Which statement describes the life of René Descartes? He studied only mathematics his entire life. He always loved mathematics, but started his career studying law and joining the army. He devoted his life to the study of what was already known to be true. He is known as the father of mathematics and the father of psychology Editorial team.

In der Mathematik ist Descartes vor allem für seine Beiträge zur Geometrie bekannt: Er verknüpfte Geometrie und Algebra und gehört damit zu den Wegbereitern der analytischen Geometrie, die die rechnerische Lösung geometrischer Probleme ermöglicht.Allerdings taucht nirgendwo in seinem Werk das heute nach ihm benannte, rechtwinklige kartesische Koordinatensystem auf, als dessen Erfinder. In January 2010, a previously unknown letter from Descartes, dated 27 May 1641, was found by the Dutch philosopher Erik-Jan Bos when browsing through Google. Bos found the letter mentioned in a summary of autographs kept by Haverford College in Haverford, Pennsylvania. The college was unaware that the letter had never been published. This was the third letter by Descartes found in the last 25 years. In 1620 Descartes left the army. He visited Basilica della Santa Casa in Loreto, then visited various countries before returning to France, and during the next few years spent time in Paris. It was there that he composed his first essay on method: Regulae ad Directionem Ingenii (Rules for the Direction of the Mind). He arrived in La Haye in 1623, selling all of his property to invest in bonds, which provided a comfortable income for the rest of his life. Descartes was present at the siege of La Rochelle by Cardinal Richelieu in 1627. In the fall of the same year, in the residence of the papal nuncio Guidi di Bagno, where he came with Mersenne and many other scholars to listen to a lecture given by the alchemist Nicolas de Villiers, Sieur de Chandoux on the principles of a supposed new philosophy, Cardinal Bérulle urged him to write an exposition of his new philosophy in some location beyond the reach of the Inquisition. After leaving army Descartes returned to France and penned his first essay known as, Rules for the Direction of the Mind. He had a dispute with Beeckman in 1630 as he believed that he plagiarized some of his ideas. When he moved to Amsterdam he had an illicit affair with a servant girl, Helena Jans van der Strom. He had a daughter, Francine, with her in 1935 who died five years later. The death of his daughter hit him hard as it became a turning point in his life. The focus of his work shifted from medicine and scientific discoveries to philosophy, finding the truth of life.Husserl has taken Descartes very seriously in a historical as well as in a systematic sense [...] [in The Crisis of the European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology, Husserl] finds in the first two Meditations of Descartes a depth which it is difficult to fathom, and which Descartes himself was so little able to appreciate that he let go "the great discovery" he had in his hands.

RENE DESCARTES. The Father of Modern Philosophy RENE DESCARTES Stay-in-bed Scholar Gentleman, Soldier, and mathematician. Born on March 31, 1596 Died on February 11, 1650 INTRODUCTION. Rene Descartes was a French mathematician, scientist & philosopher who developed an early interest at a young age In the third and fifth Meditation, Descartes offers an ontological proof of a benevolent God (through both the ontological argument and trademark argument). Because God is benevolent, Descartes can have some faith in the account of reality his senses provide him, for God has provided him with a working mind and sensory system and does not desire to deceive him. From this supposition, however, Descartes finally establishes the possibility of acquiring knowledge about the world based on deduction and perception. Regarding epistemology, therefore, Descartes can be said to have contributed such ideas as a rigorous conception of foundationalism and the possibility that reason is the only reliable method of attaining knowledge. Descartes, nevertheless, was very much aware that experimentation was necessary to verify and validate theories.

In April of 1629, he enrolled in the university in Franeker. The next year he attended the Leiden University and studied mathematics under Jacob Golius, as well as astronomy under Martin Hortensius. In Amsterdam, Descartes had a daughter with a servant in 1635 while he was teaching at the university in Utrecht.

He argued that animals did not lack sensations or perceptions, but these could be explained mechanistically. Whereas humans had a soul, or mind, and were able to feel pain and anxiety, animals by virtue of not having a soul could not feel pain or anxiety. If animals showed signs of distress then this was to protect the body from damage, but the innate state needed for them to suffer was absent. Although Descartes's views were not universally accepted they became prominent in Europe and North America, allowing humans to treat animals with impunity. The view that animals were quite separate from humanity and merely machines allowed for the maltreatment of animals, and was sanctioned in law and societal norms until the middle of the 19th century.:180–214 The publications of Charles Darwin would eventually erode the Cartesian view of animals.:37 Darwin argued that the continuity between humans and other species opened the possibilities that animals did not have dissimilar properties to suffer.:177 Rene Descartes Descartes lebenslanges Thema war die Überwindung der scholastisch geprägten aristotelischen Philosophie. Der Franzose forderte als Ausgangspunkt und Methode philosophischen Denkens die Gültigkeit eine Aussage in Zweifel zu ziehen, so lange diese nicht zureichend begründet sei
In accordance with his ambition to become a professional military officer, in 1618 Descartes joined, as a mercenary, the Protestant Dutch States Army in Breda under the command of Maurice of Nassau, and undertook a formal study of military engineering, as established by Simon Stevin.:66 Descartes, therefore, received much encouragement in Breda to advance his knowledge of mathematics. In this way, he became acquainted with Isaac Beeckman, the principal of a Dordrecht school, for whom he wrote the Compendium of Music (written 1618, published 1650).:45 Together they worked on free fall, catenary, conic section, and fluid statics. Both believed that it was necessary to create a method that thoroughly linked mathematics and physics. Es war dann auch DESCARTES' Ruf als Philosoph, der die schwedische Königin CHRISTINE bewog, ihn nach Schweden einzuladen, damit er sie in Philosophie unterweise. DESCARTES folgte dieser Einladung. Da CHRISTINE den Unterricht auf die frühen Morgenstunden festlegte und DESCARTES das raue Klima Stockholms nicht vertrug, holte er sich nach kurzer Zeit eine Lungenentzündung, an der er am 11.Februar 1650 verstarb. Er wurde (zunächst) in Stockholm begraben. Später bemühten sich Freunde und Verehrer darum, ihn nach Frankreich überführen zu lassen. Das scheiterte zunächst am Widerstand der katholischen Kirche, denn DESCARTES' Werke standen inzwischen auf dem Index (dem Verzeichnis verbotener bzw. unerwünschter Bücher). Dem Vernehmen nach brachten seine Freunde daraufhin das Argument, der für die Welt völlig überraschende Übertritt CHRISTINEs zum Katholizismus sei auf das Wirken von DESCARTES zurückzuführen. So gab die Kirche ihr Einverständnis. 1666 fand DESCARTES seine letzte Ruhe im Panthéon von Paris. René Descartes was born near Tours on March 31, 1596, and died at Stockholm on February 11, 1650; thus he was a contemporary of Galileo and Desargues. His father, who, as the name implies, was of good family, was accustomed to spend half the year at Rennes when the local parliament, in which he held a commission as councillor, was in session. Rene Descartes was born on March 31, 1596, in Touraine, France. He was entered into Jesuit College at the age of eight, where he studied for about eight years. He was said to be in such delicate health that he was allowed to remain in bed until late every morning. However, he did study the classics, logic and philosophy

Die Mathematik mit ihrem deduktiven Verfahren gilt ihm wie schon Descartes, als das Ideal menschlicher Wissenschaft. So hat auch er in seinem Hauptwerk die geometrische Methode angewandt: d.h. er beginnt mit Definitionen und Axiomen und baut darauf Lehrsätze mit ihren Beweisen Descartes is regarded as the first philosopher to use reason to explore the natural sciences. Since he thought that all truths were linked, Descartes searched for the explanation of the natural world by using a rational approach, by means of mathematics and science. This was similar to what Sir Francis Bacon had believed.

Descartes's discussion on embodiment raised one of the most perplexing problems of his dualism philosophy: What exactly is the relationship of union between the mind and the body of a person? Therefore, Cartesian dualism set the agenda for philosophical discussion of the mind–body problem for many years after Descartes's death. Descartes was also a rationalist and believed in the power of innate ideas. Descartes argued the theory of innate knowledge and that all humans were born with knowledge through the higher power of God. It was this theory of innate knowledge that later led philosopher John Locke (1632–1704) to combat the theory of empiricism, which held that all knowledge is acquired through experience.

Descartes is considered the father of modern philosophy, a key figure in the scientific revolution of the 17th Century, and a pioneer of modern mathematics. Descartes developed Cartesian (analytical) geometry, which is the use of algebra to examine geometric properties. He created an empirical comprehension of rainbows, along with proposing a naturalistic account for the solar system’s formation. This led Pope Alexander VII to add his works to the List of Prohibited Books. • Descartes' rule of signs: The number of positive zeros is less than (by a multiple of 2) or equal to the number of changes in sign in the sequence of coefficients. If all the zeros are real, then equality holds. As an example, consider the polynomial f x ( ) =x5 −2x4 −15 x3 +20 x2 +44 x −48 The sequence of coefficient
BARRY LOEWER DESCARTES' SKEPTICAL AND ANTISKEPTICAL ARGUMENTS* (Received in revised form 13 June, 1980) INTRODUCTION In the first meditation Descartes constructs a series of skeptical arguments which culminates in the argument from the possibility of a deceiving God The Rene Descartes book titled 'Meditations of First Philosophy' has been universally accepted as the standard text book for philosophy. Descartes played a significant role in the scientific revolution. Descartes was born to a French couple Jeanne Brochard and Joachim in 1596 mathematics, deductive study of numbers, geometry, and various abstract constructs, or structures; the latter often abstract the features common to several models derived from • A geometria de Descartes (p. 42) • A discordância entre geômetras (p. 45) • Ideias cosmogônicas (p. 47) • A construção de retas tangentes (p. 48) [Introdução a Die lineale Ausdehnungslehre, ein neuer Zweig der Mathematik (1844), apud STRUIK 1960:33-34

In Discours de la Méthode (1637), he advocated the systematic doubting of knowledge, believing as Plato that sense perception and reason deceive us and that man cannot have real knowledge of nature. The only thing that he believed he could be certain of was that he was doubting, leading to his famous phrase "Cogito ergo sum,'' (I think, therefore I am). From this one phrase, he derived the rest of philosophy, including the existence of God. He also was the first to make a Graph , allowing a geometric interpretation of a mathematical Function and giving his name to Cartesian Coordinates.
Descartes was born in La Haye, France, in March of 1596. He was educated at a boarding Jesuit school when he was eight years old. There, he studied mathematics, music, astronomy, metaphysics, natural philosophy and ethics. Later, he earned a law degree when he was 22 from the University of Poitiers. There are accounts which state that Descartes had vision. One of them was by Adrien Baillet, according to whom he would shut himself in a room with a heater on the cold night of November for warmth. He revealed that he received three visions. After that incident he was able to devise the method of applying the mathematical techniques to philosophy and formulated analytical geometry. He reached the conclusion that the purpose of these vision was to encourage his pursuit of science which in turn is the quest of true wisdom. Descartes figured that the pursuit of fundamental truth and logic would lead to answering the questions of science. Eventually, he stumbled upon a fundamental truth; cogito ergo sum. Turns out these words became one of the most celebrated phrases in philosophy, translated as “I think therefore I am”. Through that philosophical endeavor he reached the conclusion that the solution to remove uncertainties and ambiguities is to base the theoretical information on indisputable mathematics.

März 1596 La Haye bei Tours† 11. Februar 1650 StockholmDer französische Philosoph RENÉ DESCARTES gilt als einer der Wegbereiter der Aufklärung in Europa. Auf mathematischem Gebiet arbeitete er vor allem zur analytischen Geometrie. So geht die heute gebräuchliche Form des (kartesischen) Koordinatensystems auf ihn zurück. Auch setzte er sich dafür ein, mathematisch Despite frequent moves, he wrote all his major work during his 20-plus years in the Netherlands, initiating a revolution in mathematics and philosophy. In 1633, Galileo was condemned by the Italian Inquisition, and Descartes abandoned plans to publish Treatise on the World, his work of the previous four years. Nevertheless, in 1637 he published parts of this work in three essays: "Les Météores" (The Meteors), "La Dioptrique" (Dioptrics) and "La Géométrie" (Geometry), preceded by an introduction, his famous Discours de la méthode (Discourse on the Method). In it, Descartes lays out four rules of thought, meant to ensure that our knowledge rests upon a firm foundation. RENÉ DESCARTES (der Name wird auch als Des-Cartes bzw. in seiner latinisierten Form als CARTESIUS angegeben) wurde am 31.März 1596 in La Haye (heute heißt diese Stadt La Haye-Descartes) in der Nähe von Tours geboren. Sein Vater war Jurist und Berater des Königs, er war wohlhabend, gehörte dem Adelsstand an und übte mehrere Ämter in der Provinz aus.Von 1604 bis 1612 erfuhr RENÉ DESCARTES an der Jesuitenschule von La Fléche eine gründliche und vielseitige Ausbildung, so auch in den „Mathematiken“ (Arithmetik und Geometrie). Er studierte u. a. die Werke von ARCHIMEDES und APOLLONIOS, aber auch die von FRANÇOISE VIETA. In dieser Zeit knüpfte er erste Beziehungen zu später berühmt gewordenen Mathematikern, wie etwa zu MARIN MERSENNE (1588 bis 1648) und BLAISE PASCAL (1623 bis 1662).
