about this story

Rene Descartes is a French philosopher who is uncertain about the existence of self. As you can see, the first picture represents Descartes who is looking directly in the water. Observing and being confuse as to how to figure out his true self. Questions about finding himself arise. In the second picture, it’s Descartes’ dark experience where he doubt in his senses and believes that there could be an evil demon deceiving him in every part of his life. In the third picture, it shows how he take risk and gradually trying to uncover the truth about himself. While in the fourth picture, the waves of the water illustrate Descartes’ determination to seek his true self. He was driven by his decision and he started to realize that thinking things exist. In the latter picture, he proved that the mind is the reason behind the existence of self. The painting in the right corner symbolized Descartes’ empty idea about self while the painting in the left corner confirmed that he is right about his philosophy, ‘’I think, therefore I am”. In conclusion, he just wants us to realize that when you think, there is self.
