DOUBT AND EXISTENCE He wrote about Doubt and Existence in Meditation on First Philosophy. He argued that someone who doesn’t believe because of what they heard can overcome this by thinking on their own. Descartes offered to prove that God does exist, but he has to prove that no one will believe when they first hear something. He states that people would like facts and actual events to occur where it will make them believe.

Cartesianism The overall philosophy of Cartesianism is that the mind is separate from the body and that the body can be better understood. It follows also the fact that just because something gives you pleasure it doesn’t make it beautiful.
