I'm curious as to how Descartes, who used such methodolical reasoning in approaching problems, would view the complex issue of Euthanasia.
Any insights would be much appreciated!

Since Descartes required a "God" to provide linkage between mind and body, it implies he would have adhered to any biblical edicts on "taking a life".
