Re: Do you think you know that the Moon exists?

If 'you' FEEL that you HAVE TO determine certain things, then so be it. You are free to live anyway that you want to. You FEEL that you HAVE TO determine what is TRUE and REAL, do you not ? NO. Have you still NOT comprehended what I have continually repeated throughout this forum. The Truth of thin...

Re: Why are we here on a philosophy forum?

Can you elaborate on what this conception/model of what the mind is LIKE? It's like a computer. Yet a computer is made up of physical parts, which by the way can be pulled down and put back together again. Are you suggesting the 'mind' is LIKE this? If yes, then will you share that conception/model...

Rorty's Ironism and final vocabularies

Premise: ALL beliefs are contingent. This is the same as saying "ALL beliefs are falsifiable". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ironism In his writings, Rorty cited three conditions that constitute the ironist perspective and these show how the notion undercuts the rationality of conservative, reaction...

Re: How and why the Hierarchy of Value formula is sound

"Hate" may be understood as: "frustrated love." Frustration, most would agree, has a negative aspect to it; therefore a minus sign must enter into the logic symbol that depicts this situation.... The same applies to passionate jealousy. Where does loving, passionate and self-gratifying murder come ...

Re: What is Ethics? - a fresh, new approach

Ethics is the system by which we classify human choices into the categories of "right" and "wrong".

To the question of "What is Ethics? "more than that we cannot say.

The question of "How does the system of ethics work?" - that requires VOLUMES.

If 'you' FEEL that you HAVE TO determine certain things, then so be it. You are free to live anyway that you want to. You FEEL that you HAVE TO determine what is TRUE and REAL, do you not ?

I asked YOU the question. YOU are incapable of answering questions for ALL of US. That is a lie. I am perfectly capable answering the question for ALL OF US.

Re: The Law of Identity

I don't require understanding of anything. I asked what people "thought" and I asked that because that's what I'm interested in. Sophistry revealed. Fails to recognize that interest and curiosity are the same emotion. Fails to state criteria which would satisfy his curiosity. The question: "What is...

Re: Do you think you know that the Moon exists?

But you have enough time to guess, make ASSUMPTIONS, conceptualize, make up models, et cetera, and BELIEVE things instead, right? No, we don't. We have finite time in which to make decisions and take action. Pragmatic necessity. For your information it takes far less time to LOOK AT and SEE the Tru...

Re: Further demonstration the law of identity is broken (Sophists welcome)

Falsification is dependent upon a hypothesis No, it's not. It's dependent on human experience and expectation. Falsification means "falls outside of expected norm". If I drop a bowling ball from 1 meter height and it goes UP towards the sky.... That falls outside of expectations. That disagrees wit...

Re: The limitations of Aristotelian logic:LOGIC/ESSENCE AND LANGUAGE LEAD TO THE MEANINGLESSNESS OF ALL VIEWS

I am not drawing a distinction at all, what I am saying is you are making false claims about Godel's published work. The ontological proof is a constructive proof. Like I constructed a proof for the LNC. Just because Godel didn't recognize it for what it is doesn't matter. His incompleteness theore...

Re: The death of Classical logic and the birth of Constructive Mathematics

All groundings are in simples which cannot be reduced. You cannot reduce productivity without maintaining it as reductivity. Atoms were irreducible till we reduced them. Therefore all grounding is grounding until it's not ? Yes, and those elements interact in an infinite number of ways when other v...

Re: Further demonstration the law of identity is broken (Sophists welcome)

Is the question even rational? Either it is or it isn't. How do you decide? Empiricism is faulty in light of the senses required memory to interpret them since all empirical observations are past events. They are passing events. Differentiatiom is strictly reduction which you argue as faulty relati...
