Online Seminar Series
Epistemology – 
Meditations by Descartes, continued

Saturday, September 10, 2022

What can we say we know with certainty? What does it mean to say that we know something? How do we know that we know? How does knowledge differ from belief? This series will include works from Plato, Aristotle, Empiricus, Descartes, Hume, Nietzsche, Russell, Popper, and others. These three seminars on Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy will include John Cottingham’s selection from the seven sets of “Objections and Replies,” which accompanied the Meditations’ original publication. 

September 10 Reading:

Sixth Meditation, and selected Objections and Replies:

pp. 57-71 and 136-153 (in the second Cambridge edition)
