Method of Scientific Research

René Descartes



René Descartes' Method of Scientific Research built much of the framework of the modern scientific method.


Descartes wrote that the basis of the Scientific Method came to him in dreams he had on November 10, 1619.




One of Descartes' main lines of thought is skepticism – everything should be doubted until it could be proved.





The four main ideas for scientific progress are:

① Never accept anything as true until all reasons for doubt can be ruled out.

② Divide problems into as many parts as possible and necessary to provide an adequate solution.

③ Thoughts should be ordered, starting with the simplest and easiest to know, ascending little by little, and, step by step, to more complex knowledge.

④ Make enumerations so complete, and reviews so general, that nothing is omitted.

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
