Early Modern: Descartes' Cogito Argument
R oger Scruton is the sandwich-board man of intellectual discontent. All around him he sees a society in drastic decline, riven with loutishness, neutered by health fascists and enslaved by childish appetites. These last include the consumption of fizzy drinks and, in consequence, the environmental and aesthetic calamity of cans and bottles littering country lanes. But Professor Scruton, better known for his work in philosophy, music and fox-hunting, has a solution: abandon ye your Sprite and discover the moral virtue of drinking wine.

I stumbled upon a philosophy joke a few weeks ago, and I think most people know this one already. The joke goes:. Rene Descartes walks into a bar and orders a drink. When he finishes his drink, the bartender asks him if he would like another. I wanted to understand this philosophical proposition better, so I looked up a YouTube video on it.
