Descartes was the first modern philosopher. His scepticism led him to doubt all certainties, until finally he arrived at his famous maxim 'I think therefore I am'. He would also apply his rationalism with great effect in science and mathematics, conceiving a scheme for scientific method and inventing Cartesian co-ordinates in geometry.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Tried to download this onto my phone. I bought it and the transaction came through, I pressed download... but it just disappeared... so i logged onto my account via my laptop, and my virus protection said the file was harmful.
