1.0 out of 5 stars Not what is promised 29 Aug 2011

It took me some time to find "Principles of Philosophy", thinking I had been short changed and had only received 'A Discourse on Method", until I realised that to find the "active menu" I had to go to the beginning and then scroll back. There are only two items on that active menu, namely 'A Discourse on Method" and 'Principles of Philosophy'. OK so if I want to be able to flick through a book and find my way then Kindle is not the thing to use, but really this is very primitive. Also I have the usual problem with a kindle edition - no reference to translator, date or translation, etc. So apart from anything else, I can't use it to reference quotes. I really do miss an introductory essay as well. So thumbs down for this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rene Descarte 3 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like several aspects; here are a few.
1 Exquisitely written with an Engjish translation grammatically pure except for one instance of commencing a paragraph with the conjunction 'but.'
2 Unambiguous.
3 Uses logical thought in a Platonic pattern of reason.
4 A modest philosopher is a rarity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still to be read 4 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am sure I will enjoy this book when I get round to it. But it needs concentrated effort and I need to be alert. Not bedtime reading.

I thought this was going to be a book about how to give the D, when I read it there was nothing of the sort
avoid this book.

It is useful to know something of the manners of different nations, that we may be enabled to form a more correct judgment regarding our own, and be prevented from thinking that everything contrary to our customs is ridiculous and irrational, a conclusion usually come to by those whose experience has been limited to their own country. &quote;

The first was never to accept anything for true which I did not clearly know to be such; that is to say, carefully to avoid precipitancy and prejudice, and to comprise nothing more in my judgement than what was presented to my mind so clearly and distinctly as to exclude all ground of doubt. &quote;

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. &quote;
