Re: Truth vs. Paradigm

By all accounts, Hume was one of the most affable philosophers. Scepticism gets very negative press, generally from people who have a specific ideology they are peddling. The advantage to Humean scepticism is that the world remains a thing of wonder and discovery, and always will. I think many peop...

Re: Principles achieving and solidifying scientific knowledg

Diversification is to take an object and try it out in similar circumstances where the point of factuality still holds domain but is not the same as any earlier circumstances. By diversifying the number of circumstances, you prove that it's true about the point of factuality, what you say is the ca...

I did not know that a book was being mentioned.

Re: The utility of madness

Be held captive? When people become insane or "mad", they loose certain aspects of social and personal functionality. Socially they loose the ability to socialize and come to understanding with others, and personally their ability to do things critical for their well-being or survival is reduced. I...

Not ghosts, but entities that speak to us through thoughts and most think it is their own thoughts.
There is one in everyone. Many have been exorcized.

Re: On how perspective affects the nature of things

It's a generally agreed upon truth that how you perceive something affects what it is to you. If you see someone as good, he will be good, if you see someone as irritating, he will be irritating. So far so good, right? In fact, it could be argued that the entirety of anything is exactly how you per...

In Europe we find sex as a natural thing and parents try to teach their younglings when they hit 15, but abore guns. In USA they think...

Re: Are There ‘Other’ Ways of Knowing?

It doesn't matter how I put things into context, you will never understand. You ask people about their jobs because you love to judge a book by it's cover and miss seeing the depth of their souls. They say " you can't judge a book by it's cover", but, its really very simple. Have you ever self obse...
