Meditations on First Philosophy is a philosophical work by René Descartes, first published in 1641. The book is made up of six meditations, in which Descartes first discards all belief in things that are not absolutely certain, and then tries to establish what we can be certain about. He argues that the only thing that we can be certain of is our own existence, as thinking beings. From this, he tries to establish what we can know about the world around us.
