Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

Can we say that introspection is a form of observation? I think it clearly is. It is obviously a different modality but that is definitely how humanity has always thought of it. Personally, I think it's a good idea to pay attention to your own state of mind, without making too much of it. And of co...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

The difference between rationalism and empiricism is in the method of proof. Rats https://patch.com/maryland/baltimore/baltimore-most-rat-infested-cities-list-again-orkin In the twisted rationality of the Left, if you accurately say that a rat-infested city is infested with rats, based on empiricis...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

I don't follow links. If you can't explain your point yourself, so be it. I cannot define rationalism as well as Wikipedia can. If you would rather not read a little bit of background, you’re only missing something you don’t need, or want, to see. Links are for the lazy. A link is a way of discharg...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

There is a distinction between rationalism and empiricism but they also share a commonality : Because all knowledge claims have to be processed by the mind regardless of anything else Sure, but why " knowledge claims "? Knowledge claims are not necessary to knowledge. I know I am in pain irrespecti...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

You don't know what is logic. There is no possible rational conversation with with you. You systematically misrepresent what people say. It's just a waste of time. You're just a nuisance. EB But I do know what logic is. You even recognized my expertise in logic in the past. Are you now going back o...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

While love is not something that can be empirically demonstrated the commonality of the experience means that it can still be discussed between multiple minds . Even when an experience is being discussed that is unique to a particular mind other minds can still learn about it by acquiring knowledge...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

I always discuss what people say when they produce arguments. Sure thing. In which logic would you like me to produce my argument? Aristotelian or Constructive? You don't know what is logic. There is no possible rational conversation with with you. You systematically misrepresent what people say. I...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

You are really talking about the very many different theories of mathematical "logic", without of course making clear what you mean because you' don't know what you are talking about. Lack of clarity is your incompetence - not mine. You are the one who claims that there is only "one logic". So it f...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

There is just one logic Then why do the Constructivists disagree with Aristotle? Mathematical logic. Personally I don't care and i think nobody should. It's essentially a waste of time. Mathematicians have a nice little job and they are busy producing and cloning ever more zany theories that have n...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

The fact that you conceptualise them as "immaterial" is just language playing tricks on you. You don't have to conceptualise pain to know you are in pain. What we conceptualise is the material world. We have the concept of a tree and think of it as material. We don't experience the tree itself. We ...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

Without relating to some THING, ideas do not survive without hard relevance. Yes, ideas (thoughts) do not survive (live through) unless they relate to some material thing. They only exist until the instant that they no longer survive. Thoughts that do not correlate to some material thing only exist...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

I don't follow links. If you can't explain your point yourself, so be it. You don't read. You don't elucidate. What do you even shit? I always discuss what people say when they produce arguments. You don't. You just produce irrelevant assertions, misrepresentation of what people say, and falsehoods...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

There is just one logic understood as objective performance and manifest capability of human beings, which is the usual way most people understand what logic is. I just took a shit. It's objective. I performed it. I am human. Is that what you mean by "logic" ? Irrelevant to what you pretend to repl...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism

I’m just saying that materialism and rationalism are more different than in degree only. They are certainly different in kind. Just read a little bit of Wikipedia’s discussion on rationalism: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationalism I don't follow links. If you can't explain your point yourself,...

Re: Rationalism v. empiricism
