About the Scholar: Dihan Mashroor Nihoy grew up in Canada and Bangladesh and attended the DPS STS School in Dhaka, Bangladesh
Rene Descartes declared that the purpose of his Meditations on First Philosophy was to prove the existence of God and distinguish between the human body and the human soul. In this paper, Pioneer scholar Dihan challenges both Descartes’ methodology and his conclusions. By extending Descartes’ thought experiment of the “evil demon” that can confuse the evidence of our senses to include the possibility that it could confuse our rational thoughts as well, Dihan argues that there is no certain knowledge, the opposite of Descartes’ claim that intuition and deduction are valid sources of knowledge.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
