Descartes is looking for knowledge that he can know with absolute certainty when he sets up the skeptical worry. Can he be absolutely sure that he is not dreaming? Can he be sure
Here is the prompt:

Please write a one to two-page essay with all of the usual formatting (intro with thesis, body with argument, concluding remarks) in which you answer the following question:

Descartes is looking for knowledge that he can know with absolute certainty when he sets up the skeptical worry. Can he be absolutely sure that he is not dreaming? Can he be sure that he is not tricked by an evil demon into thinking that he is sitting by the fire? Is this a reasonable thing for Descartes to worry about? Do you ever have this kind of certainty in your life? Please (1) briefly explain Cartesian skepticism using either the dreaming case or the demon case to illustrate your explanation, then think about the issue of a reasonable worry. (2) Explain what is, to you, a reasonable standard for doubting things. For example, if you think (as many of you do) that certain practicalities should constrain our doubt (we still have to get up in the morning and pay rent, etc.), explain why you think practicalities are more important than the foundations of our knowledge.
