|Abstract||At the very start of the Meditations,(1) Descartes writes that his reason for "making a clean sweep" and "beginning again from the very foundations" of knowledge is that by so doing he hopes to "establish some secure and lasting result in science " (AT, 17; AG, 61; emphasis added). In order to attain scientific knowledge scientia), or what he calls in Meditation "perfect knowledge" perfecte scire), Descartes entertains and seeks to remove what he calls a "metaphysical" reason for doubting all that he had previously thought..|
