Descartes goes through quite a bit of trouble convincing himself to adopt a fairly radical sort of skepticism in Meditation I. Over the course of the remaining Meditations, he attempts to work back from that skepticism to a firm foundation that he can be certain of and avoid the risk of error moving forward. He argues the he can be certain of his own existence, that he is a thinking thing, for God’s existence as an infinite substance, and finally, for material things (including his own body).
In your judgment, does Descartes adhere to his own standards of justified belief throughout the Meditations? If not, identify a specific place where he seems to be abandoning his own standard and why he should not be permitted to make the step in question. If so, identify where he is most vulnerable to criticism and defend against that criticism.
(Note: An implicit question in determining whether Descartes adheres to his standard of certainty involves determining what Descartes’s standard of certainty is, and this is no small task! It’s worth considering that this standard might not even stay the same throughout his six meditations!)
