Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain is a book by neurologist Antonio R. Damasio, in which the author presents the argument that emotion and reason are not separate but, in fact, are quite dependent upon one another.. Damasio argues that the body is the genesis of thought. The philosopher René Descartes developed a method of reasoning based on the indisputable observation. One of the oldest dualisms in Western thought is the mind and body.

However, it’s become recognized as Cartesian Dualism; therefore, his name is now related to it.
