Their result for The Philosophy Test ...

René Descartes

Your philosopher is René Descartes (March 31, 1596 – February 11, 1650), also known as Cartesius, who worked as a philosopher and mathematician. He is equally notable for both his groundbreaking work in philosophy and mathematics. As the inventor of the Cartesian coordinate system, he formulated the basis of modern geometry (analytic geometry), which in turn influenced the development of modern calculus. Like Descartes, the basis for your understanding of the world is the self, your own though, the innate understanding of the nature of the world that reveals to you, with certainty, the underlying laws of nature and mathematics. You are sceptical of the senses and are first inclined to doubt, and then to reason your way to the correct analysis.
