What are foundations in critical thinking? (Descartes Meditations 1, 2 and 3.)
Assignment Part a. 800-1400 words total. Write a text on Descartes for a discourse community you belong to (online, social media, family, friends, social group, student group)
Critical thinking foundations. Dreams. The argument for the existence of God. Discourse community. Rhetorical analysis. Genre.
Possible areas of focus. You can choose any of these or combine as subtopics; also introduce your own topics and subtopics.
a. Write a personal reflection on your critical thinking foundations in comparison to Descartes; write about your own experiences thinking about these matters. Also look at the method of radical doubt; the dream argument; or the wax argument; or the questions around “what am I that thinks?”
b. How does the “I think, therefore I am” (Cogito ergo sum) foundation also become the foundation of human rights and of the argument against slavery. We noticed that the “I think therefore I am” has no race, no gender, no class. See the Kant argument against slavery in window above
c. Compare the three historical foundations: (1)God. (2)”I think therfore I am.” And (3) evolution. Write about your personal experience of each of them, and your family’s view of each of them; based on your experience, and reading, how do you evaluate each “foundation.” Which is your foundation of thinking, knowing and experiencing? Or do you another one?
d. How is the future unknowable, given that Descartes “I think therefore I am” exists in the present. Does the future even exist for the “I think therefore I am”? Does the past exist?How is it then we fear future unhappiness? Should the past bother us? For instance, if someone hurt me in the past, what does the “cogito” say about it’s effect on me in the present? Why should I blame others in the past, if the past doesn’t exist?
