Happy Birthday Rene Descartes

He was born 411 years ago on March 31, 1596. He stopped thinking on February 11, 1650.

There are a number of unthinking politicians (and their supporters) who seem to disprove his statement "Cogito ergo sum" (I think therefore I am) -- but that's another discussion entirely.

Go to his page to get the 411 on his impact on Philosophy and Math, including some good links to much more info.
