Descartes and Thinking the World

Joseph Almog

Descartes' maxim Cogito, Ergo Sum (from his Meditations) is perhaps the most famous philosophical expression ever coined. But how it can be that a thinking human can be both part of the natural world and yet somehow distinct and separate from it? Joseph Almog goes back to the Meditations, and using Descartes' own methodology--and his naturalistic, scientific worldview--tries to answer the question.
