Exam Question

 “Descartes says that ‘it were for better never to think of investigating the truth at all, than to do so without a method.’” Fully explain this and why he was so troubled by disorganized thinking.

According to Rene Descartes, truth is important for social cohesion. Within the fabric that holds societies together, truth is an important attribute. What comes to question, however, is how to ascertain the truthfulness of any situation under doubt. By trying to assert the importance of the methods used in determining truth, Descartes acknowledges that there is some aspect of relativity when it comes to honesty. Therefore, as a social construct, the society has to come up with ways of assessing absolute truths. To the philosopher, not having a method of determining uncompromised truths is important since it creates a system where lies would be easily exposed. Therefore, if such a setup lacks, then the essence of having honesty as a social construct would not be seen as important. Looking at it, this relates to thinking in that the processes of thought have to be structured to guarantee consistency. In the long run, all these aim to serve humanity in better ways.
