Please respond to the following question in approximately two pages (double spaced). (Needless to say this should be your own original work.)

In Ideas §32, Husserl makes a connection between ``attempted doubt'' and the peculiar modification or change in attitude which he calls greek>epoq'h (epoche). What is supposed to be the connection? Why are the two not simply identified? How is Husserl's proposed phenomenological greek>epoq'h therefore related to (similar to and different from) Descartes's universal attempted doubt (in procedure, scope, and/or aim)?
