Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

You cannot take the concept of principles and stack them up against pragmatism since pragmatism relies on principles to function Were this true then there would never be any conflict between them. But there is and the reason for it is that principles have no bearing at all on pragmatism which is on...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Nick_A Perhaps I wasn't explicit enough in what I'm saying, your OP is not providing an example of principles vs pragmatism, it's providing alternative interpretations to perspectives from a pragmatic framework. It is not idealistic to vote, it's pragmatic to upon realising that if you and others wh...

Re: Principles vs Pragmatism

Nick_A I would argue that a "principles vs pragmatism" is imprecise, perhaps you mean idealism vs pragmatism or even how different interpretations/prioritises lead to contradictions in pragmatism. The reason being that principles (as values) are necessary to separate ends into hierarchies through in...

Re: A Modust Proposal

It was you who deviated into commenting about the philosophical competence of others [me included by implication]. Thus my venture to point out what is 'philosophy-proper' to differentiate it from the incestuous academic philosophy, arm-chair philosophy, etc. No, it was you who told me that there's...

Re: A Modust Proposal

You think you can add "-proper" to the end of the word philosophy and start telling me what philosophy is? I completely disagree with your quote, in fact, I think it's just poetry. Philosophy renders our minds great like the greatness of the universe? It would be pointless of me to then tell you wha...

Re: A Modust Proposal

It is becoming clear to me that this forum consists almost entirely of complete nutters. Explains why the only active posters are the nutters besides Nick_A, Commonsense, a few others and some shitposters. Do not think too highly of yourself as a high achiever in Philosophy. Generally in forum like...

Re: A Modust Proposal

What I would say Jaluka is that you can't teach morals because you can't conceive of morals. Morals and physics are as different as thought and emotion.. Morals rest on an emotional connected-ness... Consider that word: Morale; and opposed to Physic when talking about a body of people, and unit of ...

Re: A Modust Proposal

People who commit crime generally already know/feel what they're doing is wrong and when this isn't the case, in most Western countries, that's literally something so extreme that they can plead legal insanity. It's considered a mental impairment or a temporary state. I'm not saying there's no wiggl...

Re: Self-awareness

Age You have provided an archetypal example of what philosophy looks like without self-awareness or awareness of others, You make Logik look sensible. I'm not actually here to boost my ego and try to convince people they're wrong and so when you show you've nothing to offer me, I'm out and I believe...

Re: Self-awareness

Nick_A You're probably the only poster so far to appreciate the intent of this thread and the problem of lacking self-awareness in philosophy. You are once again, saying very sensible things in my estimation. I wish to be able to compellingly and concisely assert the importance of self-awareness in ...

Re: Self-awareness

Age Well, this is another thing in discussions, isn't it? Where you say "it comes across as though you're saying" and proceed to say something which I've never actually said or (to my mind) insinuated whatsoever. I've actually made an argument in my OP, I've said what I had to say. Now with regards ...
