Expand your horizons, take time to reflect

All you need to know about… René Descartes and the mind-body problem *

René Descartes (1596-1650) is famous for his slogan: I think, therefore I am. But what is he? He argues that he is both a mind and a body. Mind and body can exist and function without the other, but they do interact. Hans Dooremalen will discuss the exchange of ideas about this between Descartes and Princess Elisabeth of the Palatinate.
