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 wh...

Re: The Limits of Morality

You are right. The problem of acting virtuous, is that if it is recognized and honored that means there is a simultaneous evil element in society and that society is fundamentally split. Ideally virtue should not have to be talked about, vice as well (obviously). I am not disagreeing with you.. Wha...

Re: The Limits of Morality

All moral pathes have simulatenous good and bad elements. Bad, or evil, is strictly a deficiency in good; hence in certain respects all paths are good but the question is one of fullness. Correct.. Every choice is a moral choice, but I expect that for most of us, those choices have been made long b...

Re: A Modust Proposal

Charm, I agree that rote learning has a place in child education. I disagree that history is best introduced as rote learned. Only when people know what happened can they take a moral lesson from it.. War, violence in general is a form of communication, but is a failure of all other forms of commun...

Re: The Limits of Morality

I don't know if I necessarily agree with your statement entirely, judaka seems like a good sacrificial goat to me. Who takes even a single step in the wrong direction? Everyone actually thinks they are in the right.. People tell their truth, that they are true, and will conceal inconsistencies. All...

Re: A Modust Proposal

I entirely agree with Charm's original post the topic of which(if I may) is the benefit if child education for critical judgement. I did initial teacher training and undergradute course in education during the 1970s. At that time child centred education as method was in full swing . One result was ...

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. Your "reply" has nothing to do with me whatsoever nor anything I've said. In fact, it has not...

Re: A Modust Proposal

Okay, you take it easy and continue to speak in unfounded absolutes with your cookies. Are you the one who was talking about moral principals?. Does that mean people think before they act morally about their principals???. Let me tell you where moral forms become human activity.. Aristotle was righ...

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

Note within the Philosophy of Morality, there is no such thing as 'moral knowledge' i.e knowledge being = JTB. In a discussion re Philosophy of Morality, what is critical is to deliberate on a Moral Model that can be implemented to work effectively. One of the most obvious model is the Theological ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

I think you are a fan of utilitarianism. While I cannot think of a better moral rule for the foundation of legislation , and for the use of statistics in moral philosophy, when we consider what the lone individual ought to do the greatest happiness of the greatest number does not directly apply . I...

Re: A Modust Proposal

Nah! bad and evil is also physical activity, e.g. murder, rape, violence, etc. My point is there are no specific and strong links between Morality and Physics. Every field of knowledge will end up with human physical activities some how. The focus on morality and ethics should be on the philosophy,...

Re: A Modust Proposal

There is no opposition between moral and physics, but a difference, and their names say as much.. To be clear, physics holds first place in human activity.. Good means physical and individual good to many people, but the moralist might say truth, as scientific truth is one of the virtues essential ...
