Re: Bias Against Transgenders

What's the point in labelling all conservatives as racist, gay-hating, trans-hating, women-hating bigots? It's okay to disagree with people politically but when you're just biased to think so horribly about an entire group of people based on their political convictions, haven't you just become what ...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

I intended my last post to be my last response to you but I may as well respond here, then I'm done talking to you. Pragmatism is all about making decisions. Which requires bias and subjective initiative and total attachment/immersion in problem-solving. I have no fucking idea what to make of the fa...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

What are you doing here then? Building a social consensus and talking strategy with all these "philosophers" who are too beneath you to talk with? Objectivity is an endeavour, Logik, nobody is saying one can remove their biases, you can't read or choose not to. I never even said I aspire towards obj...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

You don't see the problem with the concept of objectivity/mind-independence when it has been proven impossible? Here's my scepticism Logik, I've defined objectivity at minimum twice now, I've given you a list of synonyms explaining what I think the word means. Putting aside whether it's correct for...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Logik I don't know what you think I don't understand, ever since talking to you it's been clear that you're happy to throw around accusations without even knowing what it is you're talking about. You've called out my arguments as being sophistry and as being circular but you couldn't tell me which a...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Your opinions about constructivism and epistemology, as far as you've laid it out so far, I don't have any problems with. It's your conclusions that I have a problem with but I've got no idea what mind-independent knowledge could be... given that knowledge is something that resides in the mind... Mo...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

I'm happy to not discuss truth, not relevant to my arguments anyway, though it's imprecise to say philosophers never succeeded at defining it... rather they never succeeded to agree with each other. Which is reasonable. The truth being undefinable is not important from a pragmatic perspective, there...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Nick_A I'm not really sure what you're ideas behind the goal of science are, I think science has no objecive ideal and people will have their own ideas on what it should be for. The pragmatist doesn't really have a clear idea on what science should be used for, it depends on how short-long term they...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Logik I don't really understand how anyone can think we created the concept of objective morality while also believing in objective morality. Let's draw a distinction between something being objectively true and objectivity. Objectivity is something like "judgment based on observable phenomena and u...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Logik, you believe in objective meaning and morality? As a nihilist, I reject those two things but not more, I believe in the value of my created meaning and morality. Also as a nihilist and a pragmatist, I believe moral arguments lack any inherent validity. Morality is a product of evolution and we...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

No Logik, it's pure ego. You've said that I offer sophistry, circular logic and so on, but are you even referring to something specific? Do you even remember what you were replying to when you told me that all language is recursive and all positions are contradictory? Can you honestly say you would...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

LMAO logik, that post was a parody of the arguments you've used against me. I can't believe you took it seriously, you're something special. Yes, you parodied the argument I use against all sophistry: Justify your value-system. Since all disagreements seem to boil down to that one point, I see your...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

p.s I dismantled your poorly reasoned argument. You did? By what objective standard for "poor" and "skilled" reasoning? Maybe you meant to say "You don't think like me and I know I am right." I won't respond to it lest I allow you the discussion to be debated in your terms So you don't want the dis...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

"a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behaviour or for a chain of reasoning." I am not thinking that principles in this context have anything to do with morality. The distinction between systems of behaviour and systems of morality is artificial...
