Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you know anything about Descartes, Pascal, Molière, or Voltaire? If "yes," talk about them; if "no," look them up.
2. Does the expression "I think therefore I am" mean anything to you? Talk about it.
3. Two of these writers used pseudonyms. Do you know of other famous writers who also took "pen names"?
