random thoughts, pt. I.

Empiricism - a criticism on Descartes.

Our senses might sometime deceive us (when something seems like it is one thing, while in reality it is something else), but it is the senses who will confirm that we were wrong, after we realise it (e.g. we realise that the pencil that is is the water is not broken after all, and we confirm it by looking at it or touching it). Also, let us not forget that science itself is based on observations that are made with the aid of our senses (from hearing to touching).
