Practice – practice – with the method will enable the scientist to learn what the rules mean, and how best to employ them. The rules cannot be understood just formally. Second, by doubting and digging deeper, Descartes is arriving at axioms that are simple. Simplicity is hard to define, but one of the things 19 20 Leibniz, Die Philosophischen Schriften von G.

Reason may be (in whole or, in part) ‘in’ each participant, but it cannot be discovered by introspection: Kant insists that we are opaque, not transparent, to ourselves”(7). In particular, see O’Neill’s discussion on the Kantian notion of “the sensus communis” (24–27). See also Chapter 2, pp. 40–41, this volume. 26 The Prolegomena to Any Future Epistemology what I take for gold and diamonds is nothing but a bit of copper and glass” (CSM I, 112; AT VI, 3).

But Descartes, without argument, settles for the mathematical method. This seems plausible, if you accept the pragmatic approach. 25 Furthermore, what if the mathematical method is false? What powerful effect would a false idea have on the mind? Once the mind has acquired it, can it go on to acquire any truth whatsoever without hindrance from this idea? If not, then we cannot afford to be unmindful of a false idea in our moral code that we adopt for practical purposes. For who can tell what havoc it would wreak later?
