my humble summary of descartes' rules for the direction of the mind.

please give me some feedback!
(I misunderstand many times)

there are 12 rules on the book.

I'd like to post few rules only.
because people may reject to read if thread is too long

rule 5:
divide problem into simplest problem you can solve intuitively.

rule 7:
repeat chain of relatonships.
you'll be able to see relationships at a glace, without deducing.

rule 8:
practice many chain of relationships.
you may aquire more ability to attack more complex problem.

rule 10:
discovering the truth by yourself is the best.

rule 11:
chain of simple intuitions will lead you to deduce something else.


IMHO(in my humble opinion):
start with simplest element you can easily perceive.
(learn basic assembly instructions such as jmp, cmp, mov.)
even if it is obvious, try to mix them.
repeat until you need no deduction.
now, you may need no deduction to see cmp jmp combo at a glace.
(you got a new intuition)
with new intuition, mix them to build more intuition.
repeat!

Too late. But what I meant was a suggestion to post this in the Heap section.

Looks to me like it is already in the "heap".

If I'm not mistaken, since Descartes' Rules for the Direction of the Mind describe methods of proper thinking they can be treated as belonging to the domain of "the science of efficient action" called praxeology, describing reasonable methods of achieving expected results. Here by "efficient action" I understand also "efficient thinking" because thinking is a kind of human activity anyway. Just my thought. Wink

BTW, there exists a nice book by the Hungarian mathematician George Pólya entitled "How to Solve It" where you can find some interesting thoughts about methodology of solving mathematical problems. Wink

Here you have a PDF version of the book: https://notendur.hi.is/hei2/teaching/Polya_HowToSolveIt.pdf

that's interesting.
the book suggest to understand all words in the sentence.
this is so obvious that it is ignored many times.
but nevertheless to say, it is very important.

although I didn't catch the practical meaning of "be ingenious"
"use model" "look for a pattern" "use symmetry", it was already helpful since this book remind me importance of understanding words in the sentence.
I didn't read the book cover to cover yet.
but I have read summary version of the book.
it was a treasure!

thanks for your replying
