Descartes's Secret Notebook: A True Tale of Mathematics, Mysticism, and the Quest to Understand the Universe

EISBN-13: 978-0-307-49480-1

René Descartes (1596–1650) is without doubt one of the towering and important figures in Western philosophy and arithmetic. His apothegm “Cogito, ergo sum” marked the beginning of the mind-body challenge, whereas his production of so-called Cartesian coordinates have made our actual and highbrow conquest of actual house possible.

But Descartes had a mysterious and mystical aspect, to boot. possibly a member of the occult brotherhood of the Rosicrucians, he saved a mystery computer, now misplaced, such a lot of which was once written in code. After Descartes’s demise, Gottfried Leibniz, inventor of calculus and one of many maximum mathematicians in background, moved to Paris looking for this notebook—and finally discovered it within the ownership of Claude Clerselier, a pal of Descartes. Leibniz known as on Clerselier and used to be allowed to repeat just a couple of pages—which, even though written in code, he amazingly deciphered there instantaneous. Leibniz’s rapidly scribbled notes are all we've this present day of Descartes’s workstation, which has disappeared.

Why did Descartes preserve a mystery computer, and what have been its contents? The solutions to those questions lead Amir Aczel and the reader on an exhilarating, swashbuckling trip, and provide a desirable examine one of many nice figures of Western tradition.
