Question description

Write a three to four (3-4) paragraph essay (250 words) which analyzes the "surprise ending" of the reading selection.

Topic Choices:

Reading selection from Descartes’ Discourse on the Method (Part IV). Descartes begins with the problem of being able to prove his own existence but ends up with an argument proving the existence of God.  Read more about the Discourse on the Method located at http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/pdf/descdisc.pdf.

For the reading selection you choose:

Clearly state in your own words the “surprise ending” in the reading you selected. Identify the point in the reading when you realized that the ending would be different from what the beginning of the reading suggested that it would be.

Since you were expecting a different ending, evaluate how successful the author was in convincing you to accept the validity of the “surprise ending” that was not clearly suggested at the beginning.

Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
