    Best answer: The truth is that we are More Than mere "specks of dust"....

    We are individuals who CAN make a difference and who CAN have a voice.

    I do hope that students especially can understand that, if not the relativists here (who do not believe in freewill)

    or the equally bad historicists here who continue to praise the philosophy of Plato who preached allsorts

    of weirdness and exclusion (females & foreigners, just like political deniers today).

    So this is the "deal".

    We could & should accept the peaceful preaching of religions if they help us here in
    philosophy in getting nearer-and-nearer to the truth.
    Philosophy truth.
    But when then start to unravel their badly taught & understood RELATIVE-ism....
    then we could and should have the sense to oppose their mistakes, and to counter
    their falsehoods.
    So exactly the same in the other areas namely "politics" and "environmental" studies too.

    And I now believe that its time to "out" some of the old & possibly new relativists that
    are here within Philosophy, this hopefully may be a simulation & a help to those
    within other areas or categories here, to do with politics and all...
    For this is a part of what we can do together, to right as many wrongs from the past
    in an endeavour to give some more -exclusive or directed- hope to such students
    who could use it to and for help in their own studies & learning in the future.

  • What is the meaning to life?

    Like why are we here, what else is out there, what will happen after we die, are we no more, or do we still exist?

  • Philosophy question, shouldn't people have the right to decide if they want to live or die?

    Best answer: There is a question in ethics as to whether or not a right to die can coexist with a right to life. If, it is argued, the right to life is inalienable, it cannot be surrendered, and therefore may be incompatible with a right to die.[4] A second debate exists within bioethics over whether the right to die is... show more
    Best answer: There is a question in ethics as to whether or not a right to die can coexist with a right to life. If, it is argued, the right to life is inalienable, it cannot be surrendered, and therefore may be incompatible with a right to die.[4] A second debate exists within bioethics over whether the right to die is universal, only applies under certain circumstances (such as terminal illness), or if it exists. It is also stated that 'right to live' is not synonymous to 'obligation to live'. From that point of view, the right to live can coexist with the right to die.[5]
    A court in the American state of Montana, for example, has found that the right to die applies to those with life-threatening medical conditions. Suicide advocate Ludwig Minelli, euthanasia expert Sean W. Asher and bioethics professor Jacob M. Appel, in contrast, argue that all competent people have a right to end their own lives. Appel has suggested that the right to die is a test for the overall freedom of a given society.[6]

  • What is the proof that "I am"?

    What is the proof that "I am"? If I say "I am not" how to convince me otherwise? "I think therefore I am" does not seem to work since you can reply to that "I am not" and "Thoughts are not".

    Aren't we all hedonists since the cause of every action we take is dopamine and serotonine so we do everything because we want to and because it brings us the most happiness out of all the options? Now you could give the argument that some people do things because they need to do it, like studying in the evening instead of partying but that person only studied because he thought ahead and realised that if he didn't study he would get bad grades and would be sad so to avoid that sadness, he took the option that would it the end bring him the most happiness so his brain secretes dopamine by the thought of studying and eventually does what he wants and what makes him happy. Right ?
