Cartesianism is a philosophical system derived from the works of Rene Descartes, a French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist. It is under rationalism as it agrees that knowledge can come from innate ideas. Also, this system acknowledges the limit of the human intellect as we can only know what God chooses to reveal and that there is a mind-body interaction. Cartesianism was developed by the rationalist philosophers: Nicolas Malebranche, Baruch Spinoza, and other 17th century great thinkers.
