Descartes in 90 Minutes

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Paul Strathern

Narrated By: Robert Whitfield

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: June 2005

Duration: 1 hours 16 minutes

Summary:

René Descartes spent much of his life in solitude. Fortunately, these countless lonely hours helped Descartes produce the declaration that changed all philosophy: “I think, therefore I am.” Convincing himself to doubt and disregard sensory knowledge, Descartes found he could prove his existence through his thoughts alone. This internal reality, he believed, was the true reality, while the external was hopelessly deceiving.
In Descartes in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Descartes’s life and ideas and explains their influence on man’s struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Descartes’s work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Descartes within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

Genres:

  • roberto carlos aguiar

    Excellent audiobook. Highly recommended because really enjoyed learning about Descartes' great life.

  • Douglas Carney

    Very much an overview. Not as informative as I thought. Fairly easy to listen to, though.

  • Anonymous

    I was disappointed in this audio book, because it was primarily a biography rather than primarily his philosophical thought.
