'It is some years now since I realized how many false opinions I had accepted as true from childhood onwards...I saw that at some stage in my life the whole structure would have to be utterly demolished' In Descartes's Meditations, one of the key texts of Western philosophy, the thinker rejects all his former beliefs in the quest for new certainties. Discovering his own existence as a thinking entity in the very exercise of doubt, he goes on to prove the existence of God, who guarantees his clear and distinct ideas as a means of access to the truth. He develops new conceptions of body and mind, capable of serving as foundations for the new science of nature. Subsequent philosophy has grappled with Descartes's legacy, questioning many of its conclusions and even his basic approach, but his arguments set the agenda for many of the greatest philosophical thinkers, and their fascination endures. This new translation includes the Third and Fourth Objections and Replies in full, and a selection from the rest of these exchanges with Descartes's contemporaries that helped to expound his philosophy. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Influenced by a wide range of musical styles, these concert pieces are meant to be played with a pick, although they certainly can be performed by a fingerstyle guitarist. the intent is not to showcase sparkling technique, instead they were composed to convey a palate of musical colors and moods. They offer the guitarist a wonderful opportunity for expression. Many are impressionistic in character. Some are musical reflections of thoughts, moods and emotions. Some were scored for a 7-string guitar, with the 7th string either tuned to low A or low B. However, all may be successfully performed on a 6-string guitar. Written in notation and tablature. Free audio downloads are available for use with this title.
