Meditations on Second Philosophy

Descartes: "Meditations on First Philosophy was so popular, i can't believe it. Everyone is reading my work! "

Descartes: "The publisher is really wanting a sequel, though. What else is a revolutionary philosophy? Hmm..."

Descartes: "I know, instead of practicing methodological doubt I'll try methodological belief! I'll practice believing absolutely everything. Starting with the fact that this is a brilliant idea."

Descartes: "I'll believe everything I hear, to see if I can find at least one fact that cannot be believed."
