Clears up some ways to think about Descartes and his simplified, maybe circular ideas. Still, he did start a philosophical revolution. He wrote in French, for one thing, not Latin.

An exploration of what consciousness is and how it evolved. More understandable to me than many books like this have been, partly because mostly he really doesn’t get too technical, and also because of the book’s structure, almost 50 tiny, well organized chapters, that gradually build on each other, but with plenty of repeated definitions and repeated explanations so if you didn’t quite catch his meaning at some point you’re not totally lost later on. I’m sure for some this might seem repetitive and simplistic but it was just right for me.… (mais)
