Question description

I need 2 short paper essays on Socrates and Descartes. Short paper on Descartes should answer the following questions: 1.What would what would Descartes conclude about the reliability of the pinch test? 2.Exactly why would he conclude this? 3.Do you agree with Descartes' reasoning and conclusion? Why or why not? short paper on Socrates should answer the following: 1.Did Socrates's philosophical lifestyle have the potential to "wake up" Athenians in a way that could have been useful to that society? 2.Does the importance of being awoken in that way justify the extreme manner that Socrates chose to live and die? 3.Do you agree that (to use a famous phrase from the eighteenth century Prussian philosopher Immanuel Kant), awakening an individual--or an entire society--from "dogmatic slumbers" is a constructive and useful role of raising probing philosophical questions? Is there a significant opportunity for philosophers or others to play this kind of constructive role in our own society?
