Re: Do you believe or do you epoché?

Immanuel Can Quite so. The raw materials of the inspiration are the same in both cases. That is a point to examine, the raw materials that is. For there are those who do not believe such a thing makes sense at all. If by raw you mean what is there sitting and waiting for its nature to be discovered...

Re: Do you believe or do you epoché?

Immanuel Can I wonder if this is so extraordinary as we might at first be inclined to guess, or whether it is a rather ordinary phenomenon that usually simply goes unnoticed. Why I suggest that is not to diminish mystical experience or the encounter with objects-in-themselves as an idea, but rather...

Re: How do we transfer idea through language?

There are a great number of issues within this: a text? IS there one text, or does any given text yield to the reader in such a way that each interpretation constitutes an text unto itself, making one text actually as many as there are readers. Then what of that which binds a community of reader/int...

Re: Do you believe or do you epoché?

Gary: When it comes to things that seem to be beyond all reasonable ability to know or verify--for example such as whether or not there is a God or whether or not there are "dimensions" to the world and our existences which transcend our average, every day experiences--do you have a belief one way ...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Speakpigeon Rather than claim vacuously that Kant was a great philosopher, you would need to demonstrate whatever you've learnt from reading him. For example by articulating something like a cogent argument. For now, your score is zero on this front. Try again? Easy, here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2640...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

So, please keep in mind that when I say that what you say is tosh, I really mean that and not something else. So, no good reason to feel off...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Well EB, let’s look at your thoughts. What you call a soup of nonsense is called serious philosophy. This is what happens when you go to a philosophy club having read so little philosophy. What IS a moment in time if not the witnesed events therein? What is time as a concept if not these events in d...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

EB
I make clear that I am at my cell phone to explain why I am not selecting parts of the text and discussing them individually. Instead u will notice I speak in big block paragraphs. Awkward. Can’t tespond to your thoughts now because I am busy. And I am on my phone.

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Well logic, I can absolutely guarantee that we’re you to read Heidegger’s Being and Time, you would not think it poetry. The trouble with science in philosophy is that does not realize that the nature of what it does is derivitive. It merely assumes and thereby begs questions it cannot bear to behol...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Hello EB. At my phone and can’t do this properly. As to the circularity, in the utterance, the terms may bear this out. But the charge is inevitable and I yield to Wittgesteins Tractatus in which he say outright that he has had to speak nonsense I order to make his point. The term eternal present I ...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Hello logic, I’m writing from my phone and can’t do this properly. Oh well. 1. Conceptually infinitity and finitude are indeed opposites and contradictory. But this is true only in the conception. Up may be the opposite of down yet this does prevent the these terms from loosing their descriptive gri...

Re: The Impossibility of Infinite Time

Greetings Logic, You presuppose that time has an inside and outside that are mutually exclusive. One has to ask about the very nature of time to make sense of this. I’m not going to drop names acthis is off putting but we are what we read and what I have read constitute my thoughts. Time is no more ...

Re: Kripke's Naming and Necessity

A little short on Kripke here. Anyway, if I remember how this goes, the problem lies with what is meant by "equals". If one term can serve as an unqualified substitute in all conceivable cases for another, then logical identity is established. But in the world differences extend beyond mere referenc...
