Descartes' Cogito. Saved from the Great Shipwreck, Paperback/***

Brand: Cambridge University Press

Perhaps the most famous proposition in the history of philosophy is Descartes' cogito 'I think, therefore I am'. Husain Sarkar claims in this provocative interpretation of Descartes that the ancient tradition of reading the cogito as an argument is mistaken. It should, he says, be read as an intuition.
