The only true good, they would argue—good in the sense of being in accord with nature or reason—is the manner of acting, not the state of affairs or end sought.

According to another line of thought, I cannot rationally desire what I judge to be impossible.

The correct answer, I believe, is straightforwardly. Descartes takes himself to be such a traveler; while engaged in pure enquiry, he is a traveler in everyday life. The general rule for those who travel in terrain where the best path has no certain marks is to choose the most probably correct path and to stay on it. Staying on the path is precisely what following reason in conditions of uncertainty amounts to. Indeed, staying on a path of which the traveler knows for certain that it is best is what following reason in conditions of certainty amounts to.

Jon Elster, guided, it seems, by the traveler example, reads Descartes's second maxim as an empirically justified procedure for achieving rationality by indirect means. " The question posed is this: Should we try to decide ____________________ 6.
