Descartes Chapter Questions According to Descartes, Rationalism is an epistemological position in which reason is said to be the primary source of all knowledge, superior to sense evidence. In other words, rationalism is the idea that people need to have some sort of reasoning to back up their ideas. Nobody is going to believe you just because you said it, you have to provide evidence. Rationalists believe that abstract reasoning can produce absolute truths about nature and existence in general which relates to his idea of the coherence theory of truth and how evidence is required for ideas to be made. An ontological argument is an argument that attempts to prove the existence of God by referring to the meaning of the word or by referring to the purportedly unique quality of the concept that is God. An example of this argument is the Pros logion of St. Anselm where the monk tried to provide Christian documentation for the existence of god. The relationship between C1 and C2 can be identified as a part-whole relationship where C2 can be considered part of C1. The reason being is because C2 refers to this idea of god and how people using different doctrines try to prove this existence but in order to prove his existence you have to include this idea of rationalism because you need some sort of evidence and reasoning behind the idea in order for people to understand your point. An example of C1 could be from an experiment we did in science class when I was in 5th when we filled up a glass with water and put a straw in it. The reason this experiment relates to the idea of rationalism is because when you look at the straw after placing it in the cup, it looks like that the straw is broken or cracked because of the light refraction, but you understand that it is not broken or cracked.

    March 17, 2006 It's Not the Sights, It's the Sounds By TIM SULTAN I WANTED to kiss Lori Austin, the waitress behind the counter of August 25, a diner near Wales Center, N.Y. I had been pretending to look at the wall art — a sunset landscape painted on a circular saw — but was actually straining to listen in on the conversation three elderly women were having at a nearby table. I was not having any success. The more I listened, the more quietly they talked. "Thee-at painting?" Ms. Austin suddenly…
