Abstract: 

Doubt is one of Man's psychological states and arises when one is equally uncertain of the correctness and falsity of mental judgments. The methodological skepticism of Descartes is other than that of the Sophist and pragmatic types of skepticism. In this paper, the difference between methodological and non-methodological (like those of agnosticism, Pyrrhon, Ghazzali, Montaigne, and Husserl) skepticism has been examined. The writer has also analyzed and investigated Descartes' interpretations of skepticism and his arguments and proofs (errors of the senses and the dream hypothesis) in order to justify methodological skepticism.
