Rene Descartes

so....what's the point with Rene??????
well... I am going to tell you a bit.
well a bit more from yesterday.

I was just reading up on  my homework subject and guess what i found ....

he is sometimes called the father of modern philosophy well how come people get to be the fathers of subjects Shakespeare , Galileo all i'm saying they must be really good to become the father of things like that!!!!!

but back to the point Rene.....   

he not only studied philosophy he also studied mathematics and the verbal arts which consist of grammar ,rhetoric and dialectic or logic.

so overall quite a wide criteria he covers but he needed to use all his skills to master philosophy.

what is philosophy?

well....i'm here to expain,

philosophy is the study of questioning and reasoning they ask questions like:

does god exsist?,
what is beuty?,
what is the meaning of life?.

for many centuries cultures have been using philosophy as a way of life as it ties into their religon.

but why do we need it?

i've heard this question being ask quite a few times and sadly only know a bit about the subject as honestly this is a homework project.but i'll try!!

i think we need it because if not we won't have reasoning and it wouldn't get us to the making of religon.

well...bye thanks for reading.
