Debatable. Why does the 'res cogitans' have to be an 'ego'? Rather than 'I think, therefore I exist', would 'There are thoughts' not be a better way of expressing what really exists? Other objections have been raised which argue that Descartes should have doubted his faculties of reasoning as well, but personally I believe these are based on a mistaken reading of the Meds.
