How are Cartesian foundationalism and dualism found in Descartes’ Mediations? Evaluate the impact of the Cartesian worldview. What are the positive and negative implications of Cartesian foundationalism and dualism? What influence do these have on our 21st century world—on our science, our psychology, our religions, our relationship to our environment, and our culture? Be VERY specific and illustrate your work both with examples from the Meditations and from 21st century thought and life.

N.B.: You should only put up material IN YOUR OWN WORDS unless you are illustrating with a quotation from Descartes. DO NOT cut and paste from other websites.
