First words
Rene Descartes

In ancient Greece a speculative sophistication, once initiated by Thales, developed so rapidly that Plato was able out of the back window of his mind, as it were, to find still verdant for gorgeous myth the primitive plains of animism.
Like Bacon's projected Instauration, Descartes's philosophy proclaimed itself as something completely different from the mistaken Aristotelianism of the schools.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0226764818, Paperback)

Modern thought and modes of living have been immeasurably influenced by the philosophers of the Enlightenment—men such as Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Newton, Leibniz, and Locke. Gathered together in this book and preceded by valuable biographical sketches are selections from the basic and most significant writings of each of these men.
