Descartes/Hume Response

Read the selection from Hume’s Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding and write a 1-2 pg. response paper explaining whose argument you find more convincing: Descartes’ argument for Rationalism or Hume’s argument for Empiricism

Who do you find more convincing and why? Is Descartes’ ‘wax example” a stronger argument for his Rationalist epistemology (theory of knowledge)? Or is Hume’s argument for Empiricism (from the reading) more plausible?
