DESCARTE’S ARGUMENT IN ‘MEDITATIONS’ In the “Meditations” Descartes concludes from his arguments that physical objects  do exist. However, he does not reach this conclusion directly; he argues some other things  before coming to this final conclusion.  Descartes at first starts by talking about the topic  which was earlier termed as skeptic. He argues that ‘a general rule that the things we  conceive very clearly and very distinctly are all true’ and it was these features of the cogito  ergo sum argument which made him realize his truth. This is first used to prove that God  exists. He argued that we would not even have any idea of God unless these thoughts were  placed in us by someone who posses all powers or in other words, God himself. Next

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
