Against standard readings of Descartes as philosophy of mind's "villain", because of his dualism (Ryle), his subjectivism (followers of the second Wittgenstein), or his individualism (Burge), this paper tries to point out his most valuable legacy, his representationalism, through a reconstruction of his notion of "idea" as a natural sign. To this end, attention is paid not only to the Meditations, but also to his scientific works, as they are the key to the rejection of the usual reading of "idea" as an incorporeal image.
