This is just an uploaded Wikipedia article; Simon, has it been changed?

As someone who studied and taught Descartes quite a bit, I can tell you that we can do far better than this. --Larry Sanger 11:53, 26 February 2007 (CST)

A few substantive changes appear to have been made from the Wikipedia version, and from what I can tell they are improvements (including the removal of quite a few pointless editorial comments). I suppose this only indicates how unsatisfactory Wikipedia articles can be. Hopefully, we can make it worth reading. - Kevin M I Schutte 21:39, 8 April 2007 (CDT)

Interestingly, I just saw some additions in wikipedia that mirror the changes I put into this article. Possible better written, since I am not a writer. Is it possible that we being copied by wikipedia now? Daniel Demaret 02:53, 13 May 2007 (CDT)
