Cogito:
(Latin: “I think, therefore I am”)
This is the statement that intends to demonstrate that, certain knowledge is attainable, and that by no means the doubt of existence is a valid doubt, since, even by doubting, one must exist in order to perform this action.
I am for descartes, is not a conclusion of dubious reason, but an immediate intuition prior to doubt, since doubt, as an act of reasoning, is performed but an existent being, that preceds his own thought.
