Deception/Descartes/Burge: Descartes points to a causal gap between the world and effects.
Different external causes can produce the same effects.
Descartes: the causes differ from what we think about them.
Individualism: wants to conclude that our thoughts about the world are wrong.
BurgeVsIndividualism: but we know what thoughts we have, even if they are false.
I.e. we also know in counterfactual situations which thoughts we have. (Twin Earth).
Anti-individualism thesis in counterfactual situations, however, we have different thoughts than in the current situation (twin earth).
According to Descartes, anti-individualism must therefore be wrong.
