Descartes - The Philosopher

Our name is our promise. We’re inspired by the great seventeenth-century French philosopher and mathematician René Descartes, whose work remains as relevant as ever in our digital age.

Without his pioneering rational thought it’s hard to imagine modern-day science in its present form. Descartes gave people a way of taking control of their own lives, guided by his famous, powerful words: “I think, therefore I am.”

The man who’s synonymous with analysis and reflection didn’t live in an ivory tower. He saw himself as a servant of society: dutiful and moral.
