Abstract


Compelled by the foundations of classical physics, Descartes saw the ego cogito as the requirement for every possible representation: he primarily conceived matter and movement within the framework of an extreme rationalism, from which "I Think" became the foundation of every actual thing. For sorne scientists, the "I" implies in Descartes such a predominance of epistemology that it is impossible to think of moral and of man situation amidst life incertitude. In this article, it is indicated that the subject makes of Nature a mere object, keeping however its freedom which became the toast after Descartes solving of the Universe riddle.
