An internet oasis of open discussion without personal attacks
Interestingly, Descartes often talks about his objections of the truth that Mathematics claims. He questions his own reality, which contradicts the ideas of Science.
He could not even be certain of his own existence, for the logic that he must exist in order to be deceived might also be a deception.
But if we attempt to extend the method of doubt to the logical structure of our sentences surely the very sentences that we use to describe and justify that extension crumble away into meaninglessness. Using a reasoned argument to doubt the existence of reasoned arguments is self contradictory. But then, I guess we can doubt the logic that leads us to believe that it is self contradictory.
Yes, and that is why I said that it is rhetorical...
