Descartes' View on Body and Soul
- Descartes doubted everything, even the body, but not mind - 'I think therefore I am'
- If the body can be doubted then it must be seperate from that which cannot be doubted
- The Soul/Mind and Body are therefore seperate things
- Everything that extends in space is divisible - E.g. the body is divisible into parts - arms, hands, fingers etc.
- Mind is not divisible…
