Descartes Superman Objection To Clark Kent

126 Words1 Page

The author starts the superman objection by saying that it is clearly possible for one to imagine Clark Kent existing without Superman and Superman existing without Clarke Kent, but that’s impossible. Clarke Kent doesn’t exist without superman, and vice versa because they are the exact same person. One can not exist without the other. Because one can imagine that they can exist without each other, doesn’t necessarily mean they can exist without each other. One is only imagining, and that doesn’t logically imply that it’s possible. The author uses this objection as an example to prove that Descartes’s idea of the mind and body existing without each because he imagines It, is wrong. Visualizing is not a very dependable way of proving something
