As long as the "whom" is a human, then yes (barring incest).

Re: Hello, I’m Mike

As a Libertarian, I subscribe to ideas of extremely limited government, personal freedom, unfettered capitalism (no government allowance of monopolies, corporate welfare, etc), legalization of marijuana. I am not supportive of radical change, but want to awaken sheeple from their state of comfortabl...

Re: Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you?

Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you? People who believe in the barbaric human blood sacrifice of the Triune Jesus/God must believe that the greatest force ever to exist decided that humans, lowly creations whom we are told are infinitely inferior to God, are somehow more importa...

Re: Hello, I’m Mike

But why should anyone want to be an anarchist ? Why? Beats me. I'm not an anachist. You come from a nicely organized socialist little state (= US Army). Everybody is taken care for there, I was told. Not quite socialist, nor egalitarian (at least when I was in), but more of a meritocracy which I su...

Re: Question regarding Philosophy Now Kindle Edition

I subscribed to the Kindle edition on a trial basis, but since one does not get access to the archives I went for the print edition. As I’ve been finding out, there’s a lot of good stuff in the archives. To be honest, I still like the feel of a magazine in my hands. :)

Re: Is Psychology Science?

I’m not a psychologist, but my wife has been for the past 26 years (PhD in Industrial/Organizational). To make a blanket statement about it not being a science is a tad disingenuous or at least uninformed. Some areas of psychology are scientifically/statistically driven with hard data where others a...

Hello, I’m Mike

I recently subscribed to PN and found this forum. Not being a philosopher I’m hoping to learn from the more erudite folks here. A quick bio: Live in coastal south Florida, 58, married 33 yrs; 4 kids- all adopted as adolescents including 2 sisters we adopted from Russia earlier this year; Education: ...

Re: Philosophy Now - Electronic Editions

I'm new here and have a question for the moderators. I recently subscribed to PN via US Kindle. Does that form of subscription allow for access to PN's archived articles?

Thank you.
