Seeing, then, as the thinking substance is that which unifies volitions,  The Guidelines of a System: The Ways in Which we Represent the World 37 experiences, desires, beliefs and much more, it must be, for itself, logically independent from its characteristics. Cartesian bipartism has complex reasons intertwined with one of the fundamental objectives of his philosophy—the critique of classical scepticism. Scepticism is an important ally and, at the same time, an enemy to defeat. It must be used in a constructive manner with the aim of elaborating an epistemology and a science that are, together, able to resist doubt and to trespass the boundaries of common sense.

Certainly, no other event will be able to be added to it. In such a model there is no reason for which the past must change: E does not change just as none of the events with which E was in relation do not change. ]. This, however, has untoward consequences for that part of our model which has  26 Chapter Two events piling up, layer after layer, and proceeding away from the present in an orderly manner. For suppose that E has wholly entered the Past while its contemporary E’ has only partially achieved pasthood, having part of its career yet to run (Danto 1965, 147).

In this sense, as previously mentioned, doubt is both the enemy to defeat and the most precious ally, partly because Descartes leaves no margin of doubt, considering “false” everything that is even merely doubtful. This strategy allows him to extend that doubt wherever possible and, in defining his boundaries, to limit the destructuralizing force derived from the vagueness of that which is dubious. Moreover, the suspension of theoretical assumptions considered true from ingenuous perspectives allows him to limit the theoretical pretences related to common sense.
