Tutor description

‘I think, therefore I am' is a quote by René Descartes, a philosopher. It shows the outright power of the mind in that, beliefs and perceptions of anything are only done by the mind (Aczel, 2013). Moreover, since one has a mind, then it is hard to convince one to be non-existent, no matter the forces of conviction. In fact, one is convinced to be non- existent since he/she is already existing. In this essay, I am going to support the quote with a number of reasons.
