Cartesian Skeptical Doubt and the Cogito
Write a 4-pages paper in response to the following prompt.In the first and second Meditations, Descartes develops and deploys a method, the “method of doubt”, by which we can discover those beliefs that are absolutely certain. What is this method of doubt? What are the assumptions of this method (about the nature of belief, justification of belief, and certainty)? And what are the details of the method itself? That is, generally, what are the steps that one follows in executing it? What are the three stages of skeptical doubt that Descartes goes through in the execution of this method in the first Meditation? What makes the final stage of doubt the one that Descartes settles with, that is, what does it achieve that the other two stages fail to achieve? And why could one not just object to the final stage of doubt by denying that there is an all-powerful deceiver? What misunderstanding of the method of doubt does objection rests upon? Finally, what is the one belief, discovered at the beginning of the second meditation, that is immune to the evil deceiver doubt? What makes it immune to this doubt? And what grounds the certainty that we enjoy in it?For more information on Cartesian Skeptical Doubt and the Cogito check this: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=+Cartesian+Skeptical+Doubt+and+the+Cogito&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go&ns0=1
