This Essay is to write an interpretive essay of the film Blade Runner
in connection with Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy.
Guidance: compose an interpretive essay on the film Blade Runner
in connection with Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy. Specifically, try to show, in as convincing a manner as possible (that is, by making specific references to both the text and the film), how the film connects to the argument of the Meditations as a whole, as you wrote about in your essay on Descartes. You now have a general structure in place for the whole of the Meditations. See if you cannot link up the actual material in the film to this argument. A leading question that could help you actively do this would be to ask: how do the scenes in the film relate to the specific elements of the argument, that is, elements (i)??"(v) (as listed in the Descartes essay prompt)?
elements (i) - (v)
In connection with the following crucial elements of Descartes’ overall argument in
Meditations on First Philosophy, namely:
(i) The “Cogito”: “I think, I am” (pp. 23??"26)
(ii) The existence of God, proven in Mediation III from the principle of
“adequate reality” (pp. 34??"42)
(iii) The principle that “every idea that is clear and distinct is true” (p. 31)
Show in detail how Descartes arrives at the central issue of the whole book, contained in Meditations V and VI, namely: that (iv) “physical things exist” (p. 63), and that, therefore, (v) there is a real world external to his (or our) mind.
