I need some direction on how to approach answering this question:
"After the introduction, begin by summarizing the two sorts of claims he makes (using appropriate quotations from the reading) and explaining the tension between them. Then show how your proposal for Descartes' view of certainty is able to explain each of these two sets of claims, given the different context where he is discussing them. Then, if you want, you might say something more general about how this view of certainty sheds light on some other issue (perhaps one that we have discussed in class). Finally, there should be a conclusion paragraph summarizing the paper.
Your main thesis should be an overall claim about the importance of certainty to Descartes."
