"You summarize some of the main ideas of both philosophers well, and it's good that you've already identified quotes that could be used to support your argument in your essay. However, your notes for the podcast are somewhat confusing. It would be good to establish what the possible positions or arguments are in the podcast before delving into which one you agree with. While you clearly state that you disagree with one aspect of Descartes's reasoning, your overall position on the nature of dreams remains unknown to the reader. Note that with your quotes, there should only be one period to end the statement; it should be inserted after the parenthetical citation. Commas should be placed before a closing quotation mark. Although it's clear this work is a series of notes for later reference, there are some writing convention errors and typos such as "that a he is" that could be addressed to further strengthen your outline."
