Re: Coronavirus

Lots of emotion, not enough philosophy on this thread.

Re: Why Jesus didnt convinced the judge?

The judge could simply hold Him in prison instead of sentencing Him to death to falsify His prophecy. That is why I think there is no such a thing as foreknowledge. Caesar could have, but Jesus didn't want that. As much as any of us have a bodily aversion to harm, Jesus was willing to endure it for...

Re: Why Jesus didnt convinced the judge?

It would have been very odd for him to try and save his life, considering that he'd prophesied his own death before entering Jerusalem. There is no such a thing as foreknowledge. Since people can always do otherwise. The gospel accounts seem to indicate otherwise. He told them what would happen whe...

Re: I'm Bakhita

Hello all. I'm calling myself Bakhita. I'm a philosophy major at a private university. I don't know how to describe my "philosophy" except that I'm Catholic, with everything that means. I'm graduating this semester and am writing my thesis, and this semester looks like it'll be fairly exciting. My ...

And Camus's The Myth of Sisyphus would be a heck of a good contrast to that.
I’m also using selections from that. I read the Stranger a few months ago, and Camus is a pretty great writer. (I actually happen to be wearing my Camus shirt right now)

Re: I'm Bakhita

I enjoy ...Kierkegaard's work... Good for you! :D He rocks. The Sickness Unto Death is superb. Don't miss it, if you like Kierkegaard. It's funny you say that. I'm reading it right now. I started it today and just finished part A. I'm writing my thesis on philosophical despair, so of course he's th...

Re: Re:

The conversation we should be having is about harm! Fuck essence. Philosophy hasn't stumbled upon the answer in 2000 years, and it's unlikely to stumble upon an answer in 2 million more. Philosophers haven't agreed upon an answer in 2000 years. That's quite different from saying that the answer has...

Re: Re:

This is precisely where I believe the debate needs to begin. Is gender mutable, or constant? And this is where the debate rapidly concludes. There's nothing immutable in this universe. Change is the only constant (bar a handful of actual constants in the mathematics of physics). This claim works fo...

Re: Re:

In other words, they argue that there is no basic or given essence of gender, but there is a target essence of gender. This is precisely where I believe the debate needs to begin. Is gender mutable, or constant? Until we reach some conclusion here, we can't say whether it's possible to change gende...

Re: Re:

By refusing to use somebody's preferred self-definition you are denying them their self-definition. Yes- is this problematic? A person has a self definition, and they’re free to have it whether it’s the state of affairs or not. However, you cannot expect every individual to reject the state of affa...

Re: Trump: acquitted

I would hope that with the impeachment attempt fizzled out (was there ever any doubt about the acquittal?) that democrats will stop relying on it to fuel their campaigns, and maybe try to appeal to moderates for once. The behavior of Speaker Pelosi the night before, however, doesn't inspire any conf...
