Re: can men be feminists

At the college I attend there is offered a Women's Studies program, O.K. not technically feminists but my bet is this is as close as you can get to a "feminist degree" (I would be interested to hear comments on that).

Re: What is Consciousness?

That we should allow the present to frame the scope of our outlook regarding ideas of an abstract unproven process? Even in light of past scientific progress in relation to philosophy of science and mind? Are you sure? No, I don't think you are applying the criticism of 'historical statements' prope...

The thing to try to remember is that there are often aspects of a philosophers thinking which will only emerge in the future. This is the nature of philosophy, thinking the future. Although it may seem that much of what is said is repetitive, often it is because rationally argued these 'fundamentals...

Re: Consciousness of plants

In evolutionary terms some plant-like cells, as in eukarya (i.e. single celled organisms), able to reproduce sexually without consciousness eventually evolved consciousness after millions of years of division.

Re: What is Consciousness?

Forgive me for not having ready all responses to this, or even much of the supporting material presented originally.
