Are we our own demon?
Cartesian demon skepticism lacks force. But could the human picture of the world be transformed by human thought? Could we be our own demon? So, what if this condition is universal, that is, what if human thought qua human thought always already deeply transforms what is given to human beings? What if the demon Descartes posited as a mere possibility outside us is in fact in us. Is us.
