Philosophy review -Descartes A.) Three major things 1.) Hyperbolic doubt (1 st meditation) a .) dream argument (any given experience it could be a dream, since it could be a dream it could be false, you cant trust sensory experiences) b.) demon argument (instead of a omniscient all perfect god, there is something else created all existence an evil demon, making you think that 2+2=4, when it really = 5) 2.) Cogito ego sum argument (2 nd meditation) -must be self evident -figuring out what he is, the “I” 3.) Existence of God (3 rd meditation) -we can trust our clear and instinct ideas -cause must be as great as an effect -he can trust his ideas they must come from somewhere, he looks and cannot find anything eternal and infinite, so there has to be a god, because there has to be a source of these ideas -Cartesian circle -circular argument, when he is done with the god proof he is done with the argument -“begging the question” 4.) Substance Dualism (6 th Meditation) -your mind must be a separate substance from the body
