    " I love how Descartes' meditations lead him to strengthen his belief in God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sohrab | 2/11/2014

    " Cogito idea alone makes it worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jody | 2/1/2014

    " Descartes delivers the single greatest piece of philosophical work that the world has ever seen in this novel. Even though his proof for God does not work, the ideas that the proof is founded on will stimulate any thinkers mind greatly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jilian | 1/24/2014

    " He is my favorite philosopher and so anything else I write would be biased. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 1/22/2014

    " Descartes is intriguing and not to difficult to read for inexperienced philosophers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/18/2014

    " Philosphy is almost never written in the first person singular. In doing so, Descartes invites us to take up the "I" and situate ourselves in his reasoning. His aim is to challenge his *learned* ideas and to decide what he really believes. I think everyone should try this! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shawn Ruth | 1/18/2014

    " Had to read this for my college Philosophy class. I didn't get it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg Story | 1/14/2014

    " Come on Descartes, how you gonna use the causal principle to prove the existence of God when you haven't established you're allowed to use the causal principle? If God really existed he wouldn't allow your bogus arguments for him to be part of my philosophy curriculum. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/31/2013

    " Oh Descartes, we have an interesting relationship, you and I. You are a necessary step in Philosophy classes, and yet I abhor you. So you get 3 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitestorm | 12/3/2013

    " YES. O.o I FINALLY FINISHED IT.......... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Charlie Rose | 11/22/2013

    " What a weird guy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 6/25/2013

    " Very deep reading, found Descartes views on the existence of God as well as self quite intriguing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan K | 8/8/2012

    " It gave me a clear and distinct idea of what is not real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josie | 4/7/2012

    " Probably my favorite philosophical classic "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jonathan Cromwell | 3/16/2012

    " This work is incredably flawed. It's safe to say "I loathed it." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate | 12/20/2011

    " more philosophy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zedder | 8/19/2011

    " Check out the balls on that subtitle! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin Rosni | 8/3/2011

    " Well he didn't quite prove God exists, but his skepticism for the sake of rationalism makes him a least a little reputable. He wasn't as much of a philosopher as he was a mathematician, but I sure did like the Meditations more than I liked graphing Cartesian coordinates or doing binary trees! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elsa | 7/21/2011

    " Este es el mero bueno, muchachos. La conciencia de la debilidad de Nuestra naturaleza. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 4/10/2011

    " Embarrassingly, I never really had any idea what "cogito ergo sum" actually meant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sergey | 2/12/2011

    " I have read this book as a part of Coursera course. It is interesting to try and argue with the author though his poin of view is rather well reasoned. I didn't get much new from the book though reading was overall pleasant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Devin | 10/11/2010

    " Well he didn't quite prove God exists, but his skepticism for the sake of rationalism makes him a least a little reputable.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 7/14/2010

    " The cornerstone of all rational philosophy, and the textbook for Cartesian thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natasha | 6/6/2010

    " I love how Descartes' meditations lead him to strengthen his belief in God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mads | 4/23/2010

    " Great writing. Dark and dreamy. Makes you wonder, solipsism and scepticism. Very enthralling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Odyssey | 2/24/2010

    " Overall rating an average between the first two meditations establishing a non-refutable existence (4 stars) and the extension to corporeal reality/existence of God/Distinction of soul and body (2 stars) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 12/10/2009

    " weird and wonderful. like his thinking "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leroy | 11/25/2009

    " What I learned: cogito ergo sum "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 10/7/2009

    " Well constructed, but over all, not entirely convincing. I think he has something with the idea that we can't really trust any judgments on which there is a shadow of a doubt, but I really don't think it can lead us all the way to the fact that there is an all powerful benevolent god. "
