      John Veitch's English translation of is, as far as I could determine, the first time the phrase "thinking thing" was used: "I am a thinking (conscious) thing, that is, a being who doubts, affirms, denies, knows a few objects, and is ignorant of many,-- [who loves, hates], wills, refuses, who imagines likewise, and perceives;".   In fact, Descartes thought that human beings are composed of two distinct substances: a mind and a body. For Spinoza, however, human beings are not substances, but finite : Clare Carlisle.

Doubting and judging, for example, are also modes of thinking. Early in the Third Meditation, Descartes works out a basic division of the various modes of thinking. He sorts them into two kinds: simple and complex. Ideas are included in the category of simple modes.

Part of the The New Synthese Historical Library book series (SYNL, volume 65) Abstract. Lisa Shapiro considers whether Descartes is what she calls a “structural eudaimonist,” that is, one who ties the human good to human nature.

It is not thinking that is the sine qua non of being but the other way around. We are, and (because of what we are) we can think. Moments of such defective awareness thus present the best chance to catch a glimpse of these norms in action, norms which cannot be fully expressed but can be fully inhabited.

Substitute “perfection” for “completion or wholeness” and my mode of thinking is similar to that of Descartes, which we will remember was aimed at solving an. Descartes’s theory of the passions proper has been the subject of increased attention in recent years.
