  • Descartes's Argument For The Existence Of God

    2034 Words  | 9 Pages

    Upon reading Pascal and Descartes, I found their stance on the existence of God very interesting, and different. Whereas Descartes follows on his notion of, “I exist, therefore I am”, and by reason he is able to understand that God exists, Pascal takes different approach, claiming that we cannot know such a finite thing. In Pascal’s Wager, he claims that we must choose to believe whether or not there is a God. In this essay, I will discuss how Descartes’s influenced Pascal’s thinking. I will first

  • Judith Essay: The Nature Of Heroism In Judith

    1176 Words  | 5 Pages

    The nature of heroism in “Judith” melds the heroic qualities of the pre-Christian Anglo Saxons and the Judeo-Christian heroic qualities. The Anglo Saxon qualities are the skills in battle, bravery, and strong bonds between a chieftain and the thanes.

Hence, I will be raising some objections to the premises and will try to disprove any counter-arguments that could be raised
