Ones you've obviously not bothered to read but think yourself well qualified to yak about?Blaggard wrote:Gone off the deep end my ass. Philosophers claim absolutes now just as religious people do, it is just so because I say so. Is that at all anything to do with philosophy, look at uk vacilating wildly without providing a single concrete proof that anything is absolute, and you lap it up, because like most philosophers you are taught the same tired gibberish by the same tired old men.
Whatever lets you sleep safely.UK creaks with his old mind set, he doesn't need to learn anything about philosophy he is just philosophy arch and lord.
I answered your questions, you just don't like the answers.His arrogance though aside, just says to me that he is too lazy to really actually answer questions or do any real philosophy because he just knows all the answers;
You are asking for a deductive proof of the first principle of Logic, can't be done. What can be done is to show how you cannot reason without it. How existence cannot be without it and how it arises exactly because there is existence.
What is 'real' philosophy to you then?
So once more, show me a thing that can be and not be? Tell me how existence can be and not be? Then I'll bow down to a 'real' philosopher. Until then I'll just think of you as short on understanding what reason, logic and existence are.
One might think the same thing would apply to you?how many books of philosophy have you had independently published, how have you advanced philsophy in your tired old crypt? How many novel ideas about anything have you expounded that didn't come straight from the mouths of better men than you UK:
Still, one so far, but given the nature of Philosophy I doubt it but just haven't found it yet, and that is that Descartes should have also thought 'But I'm thinking in a language? Therefore there must be at least one other.'
Always have been able to but the study of Philosophy has shown me that whilst my thoughts were original to me they were not unique.one must ask can you even think for yourself any more?.
No, they are based upon there being things and states of affairs. If you say there are no things or states of affairs then I think you in a real contradiction.It's disheartening to think there are absolutes anywhere be it in science or philosophy, but you have found them, and what are they based on, your fickle and sub standard subjectivity.
You are in a nonsensical contradiction, can you even understand why?Overarching reality: absolute truth and absolute reality, you would have to prove any reality first, and you can't and you never have, nor jhas anyone ever and you know it. What is worse you know it only to well but you do like to deny it.
Not another bore about how education is a plot, brain-washing, etc, etc. All I've ever said is that those who have an opinion about what a philosopher has said without reading said philosopher are yakking about about something others have said and apparently just jumping to those masters call?You have to study philosophy to know anything about it, if you haven't read every dense subjective tome you will not understand why there is absolute truth, and you never will. Get bent, you are just using sophistry to justify nothing at all and no proofs. If your masters say jump you say how high.
And yet you can give me no example that contradicts what I say but you still insist that it is not true? Try making one thought of something that can exist and not exist?You're boring trite and far to sure of yourselves, you are becoming religious or worse religion in your convictions. Why is philosophy not studied so much any more, perhaps because those who really create anything are tired of talking to hidebound x must be why plebs 'cause some fucking dead guy said so, and who can argue with the dead...
Take a look around, Philosophy is becoming a subject once more. Why? Because the natural philosophers cannot explain their answers to the plebs satisfaction and philosophy is what's needed to bridge the gap. You'd better worry as if it isn't taken up the actually religious will be taking center-stage and you will experience what a truly subjective mind-set is with respect to natural philosophy.
