Meditations Of First Philosophy
Many other matters respecting the attributes of God and my own nature or mind remain for consideration; but I shall possibly on another occasion resume the investigation of these. Now (after first noting what must be done or avoided, in order to arrive at a knowledge of the truth) my principal task is to endeavour to emerge from the state of doubt into which I have these last days fallen, and to see whether nothing certain can be known regarding material things.

Exhilarating, shocking, full of incredibly clever plot twists and changes of direction, Descartes has really come through with a gripping spy thriller. A fabulous read, (even if I did guess the murderer fairly early on). Descartes' hero is a wonderfully flawed and wounded archetype, and though we don't see him win too often, the gritty interplay between him and the evil Count Droku is terrific stuff. Be warned this book is often coarse and violent, and not for the squeamish. Five stars!!
