Summary: Descartes is best remembered for 'I think, therefore I am', but his main contribution to the history of ideas was to construct a philosophy that would be sympathetic to the emergence of the new sciences in the seventeenth century. He was midwife to the Scientific Revolution and a significant contributor to its key concepts, fashioning a philosophy that accommodated these needs whilst earning the unrelenting hostility of Catholic and Calvinist theologians. His contemporaries claimed t
