Ciao Ginkgo, thanks for the link.
But do you believe we have such innate way of "knowing" since our birth? Or do you think our mind is like tabula rasa since we were born?

Re: Meno's paradox

but I wrote Not admitted but given that there is an external objective reality, since the only reality that we can trust is the one represented by our conscience, and also The reality is that we can afford in our thinking, that is still subjective, is this that I wrote pure nonsense? Mad ramblings!...

Re: Meno's paradox

his is pure nonsense. Ones has to be naïve to believe that math can represent truth, it often misrepresent truth, as most things in life are subjective and relative, often riddled with misunderstandings and lies. Can you reveal if your wife has been unfaithful by math? No? ..ofc not! Can we replace...

Re: Meno's paradox

I have always been fascinated with the notion of knowledge as recollection. Most people today, I think, believe in some sort of 'innate' knowledge or, as you say, a priori knowledge. With mathematics we often ask whether mathematical 'truths' are discovered or created by the mathematician. Knowledg...

Re: Meno's paradox

Before going into Aristotle's solution it is might be useful to understand the background to the argument.

Re: Postcards:

Again, I am.the furthest thing from a conservative. I only mean that I am no longer a risk-taker. I would have to say I'm a socialist, and an antinatalist. Does that sound conservative to you, David? I have apoplexy over capitalism, social conservatism, and the rich/poor divide. It's much to do wit...

Re: Postcards:

Perhaps it was the way I put it, but too much was read into the term conservative. I didn't mean it in any political sense. I dislike that phrase of the young being liberal, and the old being conservative. If anything, I've become more radical in my views as I've aged. My conservatism only stems fr...
