today is Renee Descartes birthday

March 31, 1596: René Descartes, French philosopher & mathematician, was born. Today, he is regarded as "father of modern philosophy". His application of algebra to geometry defined what is now known as Cartesian geometry. Descartes life work was near completion when news that Galileo was condemned to house arrest reached him. Thus, he decided not to publish his work during his lifetime. He was one of first to oppose scholastic Aristotelianism. Descartes methodically doubted knowledge based solely on prevailing authority. His most famous quote is "I think, therefore I am." SO TONIGHT WE WILL BE HAVING A DESCARTES CARD VICTORY PARTY!!!! And yes, I went to Speed School.
