The six Meditations and accompanying selections from the Objections and Replies provide a definitive statement of what Descartes intended as the foundations of his whole philosophy. His project was to resolve the epistemological questions brought about by the prevailing scepticism of his age; to build from the basis of self-awareness, through the notion of a benevolent God, to a systematic and novel approach to metaphysics, and to construct a secure starting-point for science.
