what is a good way to do an oral presentation about rene descartes?

i have to do a creative oral Presentation on Rene descartess achievement or achievements..... it should be 5-10 min long, and i think ill do it on his philosophy achievements, but not sure which one to do and how.... does anyone have a good idea?
Answer: Dress up as Descartes and have a few obvious props that are integrel in some of your more famous quotes. Bring dixie cups and grape juice and have a cocktail party. After you've spoken let the "guests" interview you and ask questions. Doing this this creatively would mean that you would have to know Descartes inside and out. Memorize or write discreetly his more well-known quotes. I think you'd grab everyone' s attention. take a risk and do it!!!!!!

rene descartes?

Was Descartes a morning person or a night owl and what was the reason for this? What were the circumstances surrounding the time in which he changed his sleeping habits? What was the end result of this change?
Answer: I think you refer to his accepting a post with Queen Christina of Sweden. It was her habit to have him awakened and summoned at all hours of the night to answer her questions and discuss things with her. If he was a lark (early riser) before, he had to learn to become an owl (stayer-up until late hours) afterwards. The legend is that standing before her often barefoot in a nightgown in the cold hours of the morning, he took a chill, grew ill, and died.

How did Monsieur Rene Descartes come to the conclusion "I think therefore I am"?

My Maths teacher used to say that he doesnt find anything amazing with the saying "I think therefore I am" (Cogito ergo sum) but he always said it is how he got to the saying that is interesting.My question here is how did Rene descartes get to this statement or rather why did he say it?
Answer: Decartes was a Renaissance Man and men of the "modern" science at his time were realizing that many of the views of the ancients such as Plato were not perfect and produced only argument and doubt. He used a system of "exaggerated doubt" in his quest for knowledge. He decided to banish everything from his mind to see if he could find "what was true" and these were his rules: 1. Never to accept anything as true tht I did not know to be evident (DOUBT) 2. To divide each of the difficulties that I was examining into as many parts as might be possible in order to best solve it (DOWN TO BASICS) To conduct my thoughts in an orderly way beginning with the simplest objects and the easiest to know in order to climb gradually METHODICAL CLIMB 4. To make such complete enumerations and such general reviews that I would be sure to have omitted nothing (PAINSTAKING REVISION) He had felt that the only certain knowledge was in Mathematics so he set his mind in training examining algebra beginning with the most simple and general rules. He could be assured he was using just his reason for his findings. He was 23. He wanted to tread slowly and gain wide practice in the application of his "method". In his travels over 9 years he found that most knowledge could be doubted. His Meditations are a living enactment of his philosophical thought. An order of discovery. In the Discourse and Meditations he sets down his thoughts on how to gain knowledge of what is true. To find certainty he "Must keep away from everything of which "I can conceive of the slightest doubt just as if I knew that it was absolutely false". He wasn't at all sure he would find anything and that perhaps there's nothing certain in this world. In the opening paragraphs on the First Meditation Descartes argues with himself about the belief that is based on sensory perception. Since it is possible to be deceived by his senses in the form of dreams etc and optical illusions for example "Is it not possible that his senses always deceive him?" Because there is no conslusive evidence as to whether he is in a sleeping or waking state "He must at this stage doubt all sensory belief. He even casts the concept of God out of his thoughts. He gets to the point where nothing is certain by applying his method of Systematic Doubt. He cannot even be certain that he has a body. He then makes his "Breakthrough" Throughout his meditations he discovers his first great certainty. HE HAS BEEN THINKING AND DOUBTING. About his senses, about his body, God, evil many things. He decided that while he was thinking and doubting he MUST HAVE EXISTED. He asks himself 'WAS I THEREFORE PERSUADED THAT I DID NOT EXIST? NO INDEED : I EXISTED WITHOUT DOUBT BY THE MERE FACT THAT I THOUGHT AT ALL. That is he must exist to be deceived So his first piece of certain knowledge: I THINK THEREFORE I AM Can he doubt that he is sitting in his dressing gown by the fire (YES, he could be dreaming) So using his method of exaggerated doubt his body may be an illusion BUT HE THINKS (THIS makes mind more certain than body) From this point of he goes on "But I who am certain that I am do not yet know clearly enough what I am" He knows he can be deceived about having a body so what is he?" - Not an animal wih a body but a thing that thinks. All knowledge must begin with awareness of one's own existence: A Consciousness - a Thinking Thing. This was an extremely important feature of his thought - It had an enormous influence on all subsequent philosophical thought Most Philosophers since Descartes have attached importance to the 'THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE" In seeing if he could gain knowledge of the physical world through evidence of "sensory" experience Descartes conducted his WAX EXPERIMENT where he melts some beeswax and comes to the conclusion that through all the changes in the melting (like loss of smell and loss of the original colour and becoming liquid he asks himself DOES THE SAME WAX REMAIN AFTER THIS CHANGE AND THE ANSWER IS YES and that is the power of his thinking that knows this to be true. His sole power of judgement knows the Wax to be Wax.

What is the rational and logical process of Rene Descartes getting to the point of his famous quote.?

Whats the rational and logical process of Rene descartes getting to the point of his famous quote: "Cogito, ergo sum", or "I think, therefore I am."
Answer: Descartes believes that any reliable system of knowledge must be based on some principle which is itself not capable of being doubted. He is aware of the fact that his powers of observation are capable of fooling him and that he has believed things in the past that he now knows to be false. What guarantee does he have that his powers of observation aren't fooling him now and that his current beliefs are not actually false? None whatsoever. So, Descartes employs a methodology of doubt; he is going to doubt everything that can logically be doubted until he uncovers something which he cannot doubt. From that principle he is going to go on and build a reliable system of knowledge. Descartes starts by doubting the existence of an external, physical world which exists independently of his senses--it is possible that there is no such thing as a physical world, so it is possible to doubt the existence of the physical world. He also doubts the existence of the physical body which would include his powers of observation--one's body is a physical object and would be included in the furniture of the physical world, so if the physical world can be doubted then the physical body can be doubted as well. Well, what about Descartes mind? Given the way things seem to him, is it possible that Descartes does not have a mind? No. If it weren't for Descartes mind, nothing would "seem" to be a certain way at all. So, whether Descartes affirms or denies his own existence, the statement "I am an existing thing" must be true; only existing things can affirm or deny their own existence. To establish the existence of the external, physical world, Descartes relies on an argument for mind/body dualism and on the ontological argument for the existence of God, but those two arguments can be--and have been--discussed in length.

What group of people was Rene Descartes speaking to with his ontological argument?

Who was his argument aimed towards? and was Rene descartes a Christian or was he a catholic? or i even heard he might have been atheist.. but that wouldnt make any sense. Maybe it would. idk. help! i couldnt find this info and ive been searching everywhere... im lame but.. please help? thanks a ton!
Answer: He was speaking to people who did not believe in God, or people who doubted God's existence, and to people who did believe in God, but needed help in defending/affirming their belief. Descartes claimed to be a Catholic (which is a Christian). He was accused of being an atheist in his time, and has been since, but I agree, it doesn't make much sense. Why would an atheist go about defending Christianity (which Descartes did in his Meditations of First Philosophy)? One reason he received criticism was that he was not Catholic/Christian ENOUGH in his writings; some felt that he could have said more on the subject/taken his theories farther.

Who would Rene Descartes invite to his party?

for my AP European history project, i have to find a major historical figure (Rene descartes) in this case, and then choose at least 5 people to come to his dinner party. the guests do not have to be time period related. i have thought of three people: Francis Bacon, Copernicus, and Louis Pasteur. There have to be topics of discussion for the guests to talk about and what Rene descartes would serve for dinner. any help would be useful, ie, themes, importance of characters.
Answer: David Hume Edmund Husserl could be the other 2 guests. The main topic of conversation could be the relationship between science and history and philosophy and religion. Don't know about dinner menu though - 2 Frenchmen, a Czech, a Pole,an Englishman and a Scotsman, so champagne,whisky, vodka, Budweiser and cider to drink.

Rene Descartes and Meditations on First Philosophy?

I know that Rene descartes wrote about six different meditations but its really hard for me to understand each one. Can someone please explain the six and his purpose in writing this novel in a easy to understand context? Thanks!
Answer: Read the "front matter" written by Descartes himself. He answers your questions there. On his purpose in writing it, I hope your edition includes the letter of dedication, because that's what it explains. There's also a preface, which is largely concerned with describing the objections raised to his philosophical positions in response to the earlier "Discourse on Method." The next portion is, in fact, a synopsis of the six meditations. (By "meditation" he means a particular train of thought, addressing specific issues.) In the translation I have, the synopsis takes all of four pages.

can you explain to me what Rene descartes method of doubt is and his cogito agruement?
Answer: descartes' methodic doubt is to doubt everything: your existence, go'd's existence, the existence of corporeal things... with this process of doubting, you cannot deny that there is some faculty which does the doubting, the cogito. you doubt, therefore you think, you think, therefore, you are existing, and that existing thingis the cogito.

Describe the process of Rene Descartes Methodical Doubt and explain why he thinks it appropriate to begin?

Describe the process of Rene descartes Methodical Doubt and explain why he thinks it appropriate to begin his quest for certain knowledge with this radical skepticism. How does the ultimate stage of skepticism lead to an indubitable truth? Briefly compare Descartes and Plate regarding the principle that true knowlege is innate.
Answer: Descartes said that to build knowledge on a firm foundation it is necessary to pretend you know nothing at all and piece by piece see what you can know for certain, or as it is commonly put, indubitably. So you doubt everything and turn radically skeptical. Descartes held you couldn’t trust your senses, because they deceived you sometimes. So experience alone was no source of knowledge. Instead, you’ve got to think, or exercise your reasoning faculty. You finally hit upon something that you are sure you cannot be wrong about. That’s your starting point. For Descartes, this was the fact that he existed as a thinker. He was perfectly sure he was thinking; and he was likewise convinced that to be thinking he had to exist as some kind of substance. He saw himself as a thinking substance. From there he went on to construct a whole edifice of knowledge. He proceeded very methodically, from premise to premise, allowing only such inferences as seemed to him unquestionable. This is how he justified the validity of sensory knowledge: for him it was founded on rationality, or reason, and not on sheer experience. Ultimately, he arrived at a basis for granting the physical laws that govern material existence. That’s where he became a dualist. He was quite convinced that thought and matter were different kinds of substances. A whole cottage industry of modern philosophy sprung up as a result. But in order for this sort of rational construction of knowledge to be possible, people had to have the conceptual apparatus to work with. That’s where innate ideas come in, in Descartes’ theory. If you lack the concept of a ‘cause’, you can’t see causes in nature. (That’s just an example.) For Plato, on the other hand, the situation was quite different. Ho too posited that people were endowed with knowledge prior to birth. But he demolished the impact of this supposition by going on to assert that this knowledge was forgotten, or wiped out, at the moment of birth. At that point it was only dimly retained, and needed to be reawakened through a probing kind of dialogue. Plato’s theory of knowledge is one of knowledge by recollection. For Descartes, the knowledge that the thinker ultimately arrives at goes far beyond the innate ideas he is equipped with at birth. But for Plato, on the other hand, it’s a matter of regaining knowledge once had (but tragically lost!).

Questions about Rene Descartes and his ideas of human nature?

Ive read Rene descartes "Discourse on Method" and "Meditations on First Philosophy" but a few things are not too clear for me. Like for one - How are the mind/soul related to the body exactly? I mean if Descartes feels his body isnt "real" then how are they related? Also, what does Descartes feel that a person needs to do in order to live successfully or live well?
Answer: In his "Les passions de l'ame" he says the soul is housed in the pineal gland. He was Roman Catholic so serving god in the Catholic way was his method of living well.

Does Rene Descartes succeed in his goal of establishing a new foundation for the sciences?

Had to Read Discourse on Method and Meditations on first Philosophy by Rene descartes and Im not entirely sure how to answer this question. Hoping some of you Philosophy buffs can help me out a little :D
Answer: No... much of science still rests on theory, probable truths, likely truths, statistical truths, etc. We KNOW nothing. Science is a philosophy of "empiricism", which already existed during Descartes time. The foundations of empiricism are assumed, but they are not proven. Science, not only the "facts" from which all things are based, but the very nature of the scientific method itself, all rest on an unproven philosophical technique to the real world. Proof of the truth of science and the fruitfulness of science are correlated perhaps, but are not equivalent and conclusive of one another.
