Quotation

“… when it is not in our power to determine what is true, we ought to act according to what is most probably.”

– Descartes from A Discourse on Method


This Descartes guy knows what he’s talking about! We’ve finally gotten to something in CIE (other than the Gita) that I find useful. Go figure it’s the last thing we’re going to read this semester.

Though, yeah, that whole “cogito ergo sum” thing is baloney. If there’s one thing that we shouldn’t base our life philosophy on, it’s thought!
