If God is all powerful, then he must have the power to create a stone even he could not lift.

How about this.


Does philosophy actually have an ascertainable purpose? Or would the ascertainment of the purpose of philosophy ("the" purpose of philosophy, for you linguistic turnfags) only be possible either when utter Truth is somehow found, or else imposed?

>>581931232
Well, this is coming from someone who's read nothing on philosophy, but I'd say it's entirely up to the person using philosophy. Some would be focused on the result, which would be the utter truth found/imposed at the end of your question, or they would embrace the process of searching for that result, finding personal meaning in that side of things.

It's subjective I think. Personally, I see philosophy as a means to an end, that end being to understand the world. However, I don't extensively search for understanding for understanding, rather understanding for practicality. If it doesn't work, or I can see a way in the future where this way of thinking falls short, I'll try to correct it. However, I don't constantly try to invalidate my own understanding in order to reach true comprehension. I just try to search for truth when I see that false methods could no longer work.

"Metaphysics is a traditional branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it, although the term is not easily defined." - wikipedia

>>581933524 is literally a perfect example of what I'm referring to.

>>
>>581934285
And how is it that your claim to laws and actualities, and precisely what those laws and actualities do not fall into that description of Metaphysics?

The very claim that we can have a Scientific understanding of the universe, or indeed any understanding of the universe, is a metaphysical claim. Not all meta-physicians are relativists.
>>
>>581934196
>this is what people actually believe.

No, experiences will be limited to the laws of reality, because I, just like you cannot escape said laws, no matter how much I pretend them to be subjective. That is a fact, just like gravity is keeping you on this earth, whether you believe it or not. The world is round, and that has been fact even before anyone believed it as well, even as they sailed across it.
>>
>>581934393
I would start with some early Greek philosophers.
Plato and Aristotle are really the basis of western philosophy. Plato's Republic is a good starting point.
It's really hard for me to say where you should start, it's really about personal preference.
But there is really a lot of good material out there.

metaphysicians focus on relativity because metaphysics is the only type of illogic that allows such thought. Adherents to realism and facts do not identify with metaphysics for said reasons.
>>
>>581934994
What is a fact, anon?
Something determined through inter-subjective experience, as I described.
Reality as we know it is defined through the subjective experience of a mass, creating "reality"

lrn2kant bro
>>
>>581934994
I think we are limited to the laws of reality, but experience is not. Get what I mean? Like, a crazy person is bound by gravity, but they could completely believe that they are not. And if you were in their shoes, would you be wrong? We are bound by objectivity, but subjectivity can supersede that. We can perceive things as they are not, and those observations are just as legitimate as the objective ones to the observer alone.
>>
>>581935702
>metaphysics is the only illogic.

What metaphysics have you even /read/ mate. Cause honestly, Quine, Russel, Carnap, et al. are not "illogic".

Or are you gonna pull an Ayer and amaze me with your analytic synthetic divide?
>>
>>581935712
Fact consists of laws and reality. You are the exact kind of scum I despise. You believe that everything is subjective simply because you can pretend it away, but are actually too brainless to realize that said laws and realities affect everything, regardless of whether you understand that or not. See my previous examples.
>>
>>581930605
I philosophize that OP is a faggot.
>>
>>581936153
And what exactly are the laws and realities that you so claim. The laws of the earth. Sure, but I'm not asking "if" they're there, I'm asking /what they are/. If you say the physical laws, you're only giving them one property, whcih is certainly no full description, and also submitting to the quite metaphysical claim that the only laws are physical.
>>
>>581936153
Oh boy, here we go...
Kek, I don't believe the universe is subjective.
I think our experience of it is.
There exists a reality outside of me.
Will I ever know it as such? No, because I have a subjective experience.
And any fact is simply agreed upon by a majority.
Everyone thought that the sun revolved around the world, and that was a "fact"
Any fact is simply the belief of the majority

This is almost painful. Please just get to your point.

>>581935813
Said crazy person is wrong. Of course he'll think he's right, because that's part of being wrong in the first place. Objectivity will always exceed subjectivity. Any amount of subjectivity will consistently and always crumble to that of reality in time. Objectivity, does not ever fail.
>>
>>581936987
I agree. But, objectivity is separate from our own experiences. Truth will always win out in the end, but due to our subjective perception, it's not always clear what is and isn't objective and true.
>>
>>581936987
And like that, you've successfully removed my interest in responding to you. I would think that you weren't a troll, except that all you could manage in response to the point you said I have yet to get to is a bicker with my quotations.

Cheers, mate, your ruse worked!
>>
>>581936639
I don't recall only saying "physical laws". I used physical because it's the easiest to demonstrate. Listing every law and reality would take more than several lifetimes. Please don't bait me with this bullshit.

>>581936780
I think you'll know it as such. If you don't eat you will die. That's a fair taste of reality and objectivity, no pun intended.

>>581937467
Objectivity is not separate. Are existence is built and survives through our adheral to objectivity. This is a fact. Subjectivity in itself is the denial of objectivity on any level, be it large or small.

>>581937468
Cheers
>>
>>581938224
I doubt I'll ever convince you, as you seem emotionally invested in what I think of as the illusion of objectivity, as if you don't perceive the world subjectively like every other human being. But, I guess I'll say "in my opinion", experience is perceiving the objective subjectively.
>>
>>581938907
objective subjectivity is an oxymoron. You're combining two terms that reject each other by definition.
>>
Epistemology is a waste, JTB is never going to be strong enough, and there will never be a satisfactory fourth condition, tautology is the only reasonable knowledge, but it is impossible to demonstrate it being abelian. Skepticism is the only real philosophical standpoint; pragmatism is acceptable so long as you first admit a basic skeptical frame.

I never said it was one word. That is your subjective view, henceforth it being wrong. I cannot possibly perceive objectivity subjectively because, as i earlier stated, that would no longer be objective.

I'm not claiming that subjectivity doesn't exist, I'm claiming it to be a cancer to the mind.

>>
>>581942540
Do you think I give a shit about whether he was Jewish or not? I'm not racist. And yes, I'm very much aware how his ideas were used against the people instead of for them. That doesn't mean his ideas are flawed. That simply means others are willing to use them to gain power. You're not going to convince me that the U.S.A. using "Democracy" and "Freedom" to obtain oil resources in the Middle East is any different.

I haven't read much really. I've heard a lot from other people, and read a minor portion of Thus Spoke Zarathustra. I thought he was way too distrustful of other people's ability to think, referring to them consistently as the masses.

Oh, and MBTI means a LOT in my opinion. It's a very simple system, but can give a basic starting point in understanding to more complex relationships. I use it in conjunction with socionics, and it can give me pretty profound insight on people by just a few little tidbits leading me to their cognitive functions.

I love it. <3

Well the lower class needs to start having less kids instead of having more. They have a ton of kids because their own mistakes.

If someone finds that they can't seem to get a job or support a family with a low paying job, they need take responsibility and not have children.

Demanding that factories make more jobs for uneducated humans is bizarre and wrong.

But the absurdity of such a contradiction is one among thousand points that point out the flaws in such a thing as omnipotence. Stating that two completely contradicting states can co-exist to due a single entities overbearing power is absurd. There are so many things wrong with it that I can't even begin to count them down, and THAT'S the point of the point.

The idea that some contradictions are okay has been defended in the form of paraconsistent logic by a number of mathematicians and logicians. Look up Graham Priest's work. He gives striking results about these systems which make them seem more plausible than they are at first.

How so? A mistake is a relative term, and many people are born into situations they can't get out of. Many people are raised in harmful environments, or may want to have children but can't afford it. Should the burden be put on them? I don't believe so. I believe as a society, we should enable all people in their pursuit of a well-paying job and their attempts to obtain happiness. Different people have different circumstances. The circumstances shouldn't be what is questioned, the system that prevents people with these circumstances from succeeding should be questioned.

Few, really. Hegel has a quip about the insufficiency of summaries that basically can be summed up (kek) as "if I could write the whole idea in a summary, I wouldn't need the book"

Imagine there's an isolated village with 99 jobs for 100 workers. What the fuck is that hundredth worker supposed to do, jump off a bridge?

That's the environment in the United States; there are not enough jobs for everyone. The jobs are gone and they're not coming back. It's actually been this way for a couple decades, but nobody noticed because we've been chucking so many people in prison.

Jobs Culture needs to be completely discarded, as do all the various political systems based upon it. We need to stop holding people's necessities hostage and start automating the labor and the infrastructure so that people's needs can be met not because they 'earned it,' but as a matter of course because they're here.

The reason that I find it absurd is because the logic we use with our limited perception is the only thing we can rely on. There may be things beyond it, but there is no reason to believe in these things without anything that can appeal to our sense of logic within our realm of perception. Perhaps there IS some kind of God that can do such a thing, but I have no reason to see one, therefore it's better to assume that the idea is unlikely given the circumstances with such contradictions.

I believe all morals are merely relative view-points about a circumstantial scenario derived from our base emotions.

Jewish families within their time tend to accumulate wealth. That wealth is passed onto their children and it culminates into their own businesses.

Personally, I am against this. I'm against inheritance. That doesn't mean that the Jews want to "take over the world" more than any other person. The only difference is that Jews have proven resourceful and thus make up a good portion of the bourgeois.

Listen guys I'm not going to reply to all of you.

Basically, you need to learn about evolution.

I know that the lower class is not going to only have 1 or 0 kids. Its more of a suggestion. They're stupid and yeah, its not really their fault. Northern humans are smarter than southern humans. People have to come to terms with this. Its the main reason people get confused and upset.

Taking money from the rich, who have figured everything out, an giving it to the poor, is not going to solve anything, its only going to make things worse. You're giving power to the dumbest people in mass. It is not a good idea.

Oh and all this communist crap is basically like capitalism, but in a simpler and inaccurate form.
Communism is basically guessing where things should go while capitalism is more natural and efficient.
>>
>>581949615
But that's the problem with omnipotence is that if it doesn't cover every basis, then you can't refer to it as being "all powerful". But because of these contradictions, two states cannot coexist. A contradiction is usually either impossible for all intents and purposes, or it merely appears as such, but has some kind of solution. Because of this, the most logical conclusion would be that omnipotence cannot exist.

Yes, but the only reason most people would do such a thing is because they find it funny. However, most people consistently state that they know someone is arguing a point they don't actually agree with, and they don't find it funny. So at the moment it seems everyone just doesn't want to admit that it is actually funny. Perhaps they find it funny to pretend it's not funny? I don't personally find that very funny.

Not really. If manufacturing jobs leave one country, where do they go? Overseas where labour is cheap. Approximately the same amount of jobs, they just moved countries.
>>
>>581950089
Everything you said is a prime example of why the poor are uneducated and, well... poor. You believe that you're superior because of certain circumstances. I don't think people are intrinsically equal, but I believe that what is "equal" is relative. So you have to go in with a mindset that we are equal. Similarly, not all poor people are stupid or uneducated, and not all rich people are intelligent or educated. Taking away jobs and power from the poor isn't going to solve anything. It's merely going to make them angrier and less informed, thus more likely to make poor decisions. Giving poor people the chance to make more money and be more educated means they can prevent the rich from taking advantage of them. The rich haven't "figured everything out" they've merely found ways to take advantage of the system to benefit themselves.

You have a preconceived notion that poor people are stupid because they're poor. While in reality, most aren't stupid, merely uneducated. Why are they uneducated? Because they either don't have the resources to educate themselves, or are born into an environment that prevents them from being educated for some other reason. Either way, this root problem isn't fixed by taking away chances and opportunity from them. Quite the opposite, in fact...

The majority of humans wish to extend their existence in some form.

I know many atheists that would like to live forever.

In religion, there is the concept of everlasting life, living on after your death.

However, I rarely meet anyone who is content with merely letting their consciousness or existence fade entirely. Ultimately, we fear the unknown. It's impossible to understand the concept of nothingness. So rather than asking the question with an obvious answer "Why do we fear death" it's the reverse. Some are perfectly content with letting their existence fade entirely. Why?

...you need it spelled out what the consequences are of there not being enough jobs to go around?

You get that hundredth worker. You get a population of able-bodied adults with no place to go. They either work shit jobs with a high turnover rate, they mooch off of their parents, or they become the hopeless helpless homeless, living in shelters and gutters until they starve or freeze or one of their peers shanks them.

There are not enough jobs for everyone. Trying to artificially create jobs for everyone would be moving backward. If we want to move forward, we need to acknowledge that yes, there are not enough jobs for everyone, therefore it is not ethical or responsible to demand that everyone have a job if they want food, shelter, communication, et cetera. The economies we've built got us through the last couple thousand years, but we are in the process of outgrowing them.

Nietzsche sucked? That's about all I remember from the one semester I took in Community. To be honest, too much of philosophy relies on religion, and not enough on people like Nietzsche. I may hate how he puts things, but at least he is reasonable, and more than likely correct.

There isn't a physical objectivity to be had when talking about abstract concepts. You can't quantify something that doesn't physically exist. It's a battle of relative ideas about the nature of existence. You're simply deliberately misinterpreting what he said.

The world Is a village. It's a very, very large village with finite resources and a finite number of people.

All I know about racism is it's BS. Not because some people aren't the best and everyone shouldn't bow down to them, but because those people can be of any race. Ghandi, Mother Theresa (at least how she acted), Bill Clinton, and, if you actually look into who he really was, Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia. All great people, all different races. Just better than everyone, regardless of race.

Granted I didn't read the whole conversation, so if you're giving facts while discussing an abstract concept that still pertains to society and physical issues, then facts help. Ultimately they aren't the deciding factor regarding a battle of abstract ideas about how a system should work. It's up to the argument.

I believe the true purpose of studying philosophy in an academic setting is to learn how to write philosophy papers. How to properly engage in philosophical arguments. In essence, I was afforded the opportunity to engage in philosophical debate with world class intellectuals.
>>
>>581950451
>philosophy
Analytic philosophy views itself as continuous with natural science, and is written in a style that is rigorous and precise. Most papers focus on a detailed analysis of a very particular issue.

Continental philosophy is written in a literary and allusive style, and is more concerned with "big picture" issues. Most authors strangely seem to assume that Sausserian linguistics and Jungian psychology are correct, even though both are outdated.
>>
>>581955534
We'll see what system wins in the end. ;)

Two points:
1. Nietzsche was not an analytic philosopher, he was a continental philosopher

Your statement can only be true if the only people who are rascist are white.

I that is not the case then his context is absolutely correct.

I would argue black, Asian and middle eastern people as a whole are far more rascist and have far more rascist people amongst them.

Off of that brief description, I don't think a philosopher should have to "prove their worth" as you put it. Every person provides a new and unique subjective perspective, which are each, if validated by logic, valuable in their own sense. That's my opinion of course, but.

I don't necessarily disagree or agree. It's complicated. I believe that when you're strongly pertaining to a society with little actual discussion pertaining to philosophy, facts are the deciding factor. But depending on the argument, even if it's about our society, facts aren't necessarily going to solve an issue when the basis of the problem lies in the systems which are based off of the abstract ideas of men.

Okay. But that is not where it ends. Ultimately philosophy is for the self, because the self is all that there is for every person. Philosophy derives from natural curiosity, and is not an esoteric subject matter you spend some time in in school. The natural philosopher, which, in my opinion is everyone, only needs be ignited. When it becomes the mainstay of their existence, the incessant background to nearly every interaction, philosophy is not a subject matter, it is everything.

Adolf Hitler's government was based on hate (which there was no shortage of at the time) and was extremely effective. Modern governments are based on peace, freedom and tolerance which are rare these days and consequentially those governments are extremely ineffective.

I fail to see how that means I'm going to twist facts into falsities. Facts exist to serve an argument. The point is that they only have meaning in context. That context is the argument to further ones point. An argument that exists to support a fact is the process you go through to make sure the fact is correct. Not that any fact is ultimate anyways, because all things are subjective to some extent. No, I'm not trying to twist facts into falsities, I'm letting you understand that a fact isn't black and white, which is also how you seem to view the world.

It has been suggested by some atheist that Jesus was based of Socrates's. I don't know much about that but its something to consider and the bible does have a lot of similar traits as some Greek philosophy. So don't shy away from /lit/ its probably the best board on 4chan
