DISCOURSE ON THE METHOD OF RIGHTLY CONDUCTING THE REASON, AND SEEKING TRUTH IN THE SCIENCES and SELECTIONS FROM THE PRINCIPLES OF PHILOSOPHY by René Descartes
A PENN STATE ELECTRONIC CLASSICS SERIES PUBLICATION

“Cogito Ergo Sum”

GOOD SENSE IS, of all things among men, the most equally distributed;
for every one thinks himself so abundantly provided with it,
that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything
else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they
already possess. And in this it is not likely that all are mistaken the
conviction is rather to be held as testifying that the power of judging
aright and of distinguishing truth from error, which is properly
what is called good sense or reason, is by nature equal in all men;
and that the diversity of our opinions, consequently, does not arise
from some being endowed with a larger share of reason than others,
but solely from this, that we conduct our thoughts along different
ways, and do not fix our attention on the same objects.

Discourse on the Methodof Rightly Conductingthe Reason, and SeekingTruth in the Sciences
by 
René Descartes
Prefatory Note by the Author 
If this Discourse appear too long to be read at once, it may be di-vided into six Parts: and, in the first, will be found various consider-ations touching the Sciences; in the second, the principal rules of the Method which the Author has discovered, in the third, certainof the rules of Morals which he has deduced from this Method; inthe fourth, the reasonings by which he establishes the existence of God and of the Human Soul, which are the foundations of hisMetaphysic; in the fifth, the order of the Physical questions whichhe has investigated, and, in particular, the explication of the mo-tion of the heart and of some other difficulties pertaining to Medi-cine, as also the difference between the soul of man and that of thebrutes; and, in the last, what the Author believes to be required inorder to greater advancement in the investigation of Nature thanhas yet been made, with the reasons that have induced him to write.
