What is a human being? René Descartes discusses some of the ultimate questions in his seminal series of 'meditations' on the mind, thought, existence and god. The influence of these meditations can still be felt in philosophy today, a testament to both their strength and the fact that philosophy (and people) continue to grapple with the simplest ideas or 'truths' of existence- which by their nature are extremely difficult to reach conclusions on. It can be really hard work pulling apart your own thought, but Descartes is a good companion and ensures you never stray too far into the void.
