|Abstract||The purpose of this essay is to exhibit in detail the setting for the version of the Cogito Argument that appears in Descartes’s Meditations. I believe that a close reading of the text can shed new light on the nature and role of the “evil demon”, on the nature of God as he appears in the ﬁrst few Meditations, and on the place of the Cogito Argument in Descartes’s overall scheme.|
