Write a 2-3 page paper addressing the following prompt: What is Descartes’ Dream Argument and Evil Demon argument and how do the two differ on what we can be skeptical about? Provide one response to the skepticism raised in Descartes’ Meditations. In addressing this prompt, you can and should use the reading from Descartes as well as any other content provided in this unit (e.g. videos, my own presentation of the content). Additional sources are unnecessary and highly not recommended. Purpose of Assignment demonstrate a clear, in-depth understanding of the content through accurate and concise writing; and engage with the text through appropriate quoting and citation (any major citation format is acceptable, e.g. APA, MLA). Given the purposes of this assignment, it is important that you provide clear definitions of key terms, explain concepts and theories in detail and with examples when helpful, and demonstrate your understanding by providing these explanations in your own words whenever possible (instead of quoting). My recommendation is to demonstrate your understanding of the reading through selective quoting (in other words, keep quoting to a minimum) and when quoting, be sure to explain what the quote means and how it connects to the rest of the discussion. For additional information on expectations for this assignment, refer to the grading rubric. Submission Guidelines 1 inch margins, double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman font (Be sure to check these formatting guidelines as these may not be the default setting on your word processor). Paper must be at least two full pages and must not be longer than three full pages. Any papers that do not meet the minimum page requirement will be penalized, and anything written beyond the third page will not be read.
