Re: How do we know our reasoning is valid?

Hot air Wirius. You don't know why you are calling it an induction because you do not know what it means - as I keep telling you. Page nine here. http://forum.philosophynow.org/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=19283 If you don't remember, I posted exactly what induction was. Again, I have the links to show you...

Re: How do we know our reasoning is valid?

Please state HOW this is an induction! Repeating the assertion does not make it more truthful. It would be easiest if you would read what I'm telling the OP to go check out. Go to"Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End" here on the forums if you want to get to the induction part. I would rather not re...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End

I will assume at this point that silence means assent, people didn't read the links, they don't understand, or they don't care. =P. Still, this has been fun, and I'm thankful to all those who asked great questions and wanted some discussion. I'll be checking in here and there, but if its been a whil...

Re: How do we know our reasoning is valid?

I think you need to lighten up on the deduction/induction thing. All knoweldge and thinking requires both and a lot more besides. Deductions don't trump shit. "unless you are wrong". think about this. Start here! A brain in a vat argument is not an induction. Of course I always leave the possibilit...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Usually, the perceiver oneself says what is belief and perceived fact, plainly without further explanation. Then the whole justification of this belief and this perceived (true... if any) fact to convince the readers of this report of Belief, Fact and Justified True Belief (JTB). So the justificati...

Re: Justified True Belief and Hypothetico-Deductive Method

Hey Necromancer. I love examening the JTB theory of knowledge. Could you clarify what you mean by a justified true belief? First, what is true? How do you know what is true? Do you need a justified true belief to know a justified true belief? How do you escape the circular logic which defining truth...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End

Another quick point. There may be some assumptions which are necessary for communication to occur in the initial setup. For example, we're using English, and assuming that is a known and useful language. Those assumptions DO need answers. The question is, do I answer them later in the paper to where...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End

Hi Wirius... In part 1 you wrote : " If one's logic about justifying beliefs is itself inductive, such a knowledge system is merely a belief verification system which relies on other unverified beliefs. Logically, all knowledge theories based on induction will reduce to, “I believe, because I belie...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End

For more conversation starting. One of the things I like about the complete theory is not only is its claims to knowledge consistent and can be applied to this theory of knowledge itself ( I can know that I know) but this application of knowledge does not require an "I" to be human. This theory appl...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 3

One of my favorite parts about this section is it allows me to both cognitively and applicably understand math. Math truly is the logic of discrete experience, yet it must be applied to reality before it is applicably known. Thus the theory allows me to know math apart from the apriori argument. I'v...

Re: Subjective Deduction Part 4 and End

I have an example for you, wirius. How do your system relate to the Bible? What is knowledge and what is rubbish if any? How does the Bible relate to history and so on...? Good question Necromancer. The Bible is a book of claims about reality. Conceptually, we can view the bible as a ton of cogniti...

Re: What is belief?

A belief is an assertion of reality. Whether that belief is rational, or actually is real, is a question of knowledge.
