QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY! FAB LIT THINGS TO KNOW!

Fabulous, fantastic, and interesting are what literature truly represents! Here are some "quick lit bites" to get you motivated and inspired to read, write, and immerse yourself in literature.

QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

RenĂ© Descartes-was a natural philosopher, and writer who spent most of his adult life in the Dutch Republic. He has been dubbed the "Father of Modern Philosophy", and much subsequent western philosopy is a response to his writings, which are studied closely to this day. In particular, his Meditations on First Philosopy continues to be a standard text at most university philosophy departments.

Principles of Philosophy (Principia philosophiae) is a book by Decartes. It set forth the principles of nature--the Law of physics--as Descartes viewed them. Most notably, it set forth the principle that in the absence of external forces, an object's motion will be uniform and in a straight line.

Newton borrowed this principle from Descartes and included it in his own Principia; to this day, we refer to it as "Newton's First Law of Motion."
