Example text

Et, en la première, on trouvera diverses considérations touchant les sciences. And, in the first, will be found various considerations touching the Sciences.

En la troisième, quelques unes de celles de la morale qu'il a tirée de cette méthode. In the third, certain of the rules of Morals which he has deduced from this Method. En la quatrième, les raisons par lesquelles il prouve l'existence de Dieu et de l'âme humaine, qui sont les fondements de sa métaphysique.
