In addition, many philosophers attain their knowledge differently. Some philosophers relied on reason or logic, while others believed only in observation and sensory experiences. It is the way in which certain knowledge is attained that created this debate. The debate on epistemology challenges the sources and origins of the...
The rule of law can be viewed in two perspectives which is philosophical perspective and political perspective. The rule of law is an aspect of ancient and modern natural law thought. In essence, the natural law tradition insists that the authority of law derives not from the power of any political ruler, but from a higher source, either theological or secular. According to Brian Bix, the standards against which law is judged have sometimes been described as "a(the) higher law." For...
For this mini project, we have been given a project title to be discussed that is Types of proof in Logic which are direct proof, indirect proof, contradiction and contrapositive. Mathematical logic is a subfield of mathematics that close up to computer science and philosophical logic. This topic is divided into two parts which are the study of mathematical of logic and the applications of logic in computer science and to other areas of mathematics. This topic also covering the study of the...
What helps, or may help, my interactions with clients. Past experiences, communication techniques and self-awareness are all important in helping with the nurse client interactions. Some other considerations when building a nurse client relationship is rapport, validation, empathy and body space (non-verbal communication). My past has given me dos and don'ts when it comes to interacting with others, which I apply to my nurse client relationship. I have learned how important listening is when...
One of the major questions in the philosophy of science is how we are to truly define what exactly science is, and also how to distinguish it from non-scientific fields of practice. This is known as the problem of demarcation. There have been many attempts to solve this by defining the criterion of science throughout history by philosophers and scientists alike, for example the theory of logical positivism. This and others have often been successfully used to help differentiate science from the...
As we all know, we are living in a world which is based on technology. Every day, we are faced with new technological advances which aim to make our life easier. We were used to see books appear as papers bound together with a hard cover; nowadays we have the IPad, where you can store unlimited numbers of electronic books. We were used to see music stored on cassettes and LPs, now using a small piece of metal; you can store infinite number of songs. These advances made our life look simpler...
Individuals have direct access only to their own minds, introspection does not provide the broad base necessary for generalizations. Hence, for scientist observation is usually the prefer mode. Even so, observation is part of a methodology that originally was developed for the investigation of physical reality. The introspective approach is useful in investigations of mental raelity, especially for those who strived to avoid generalizations. In introspective methods have often contributed...
Self-control, the basic teaching of the greatest stoics in history. The philosophy of stoicism emerged sometime around 300 B.C. Though stoicism was founded by Zeno of Citium, the most influential stoics were Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus, the Emperor and the slave. Even though both men were very influential, it is evident that Marcus Aurelius' philosophy of life had the greatest impact on his people, both the elite and underprivileged classes. His works and teachings, which were addressed to...
Every day scientists are finding new ways to make computers faster, smarter, and more helpful to every-day tasks. Artificial intelligence, a field of computer science focused entirely on producing "smart" computer behavior, seems to have limitless possibilities. Experts in the field predict human-like computers or robots within the next 50 years. But there is one issue which limits artificial intelligence - is it even possible for computers to have intelligence? This paper addresses...
The Greek word "philosophy" (philosophia) is a compound word, composed of two parts: 'Philos' (love) and 'Sophia' (wisdom). It literally means love of wisdom. The first part of the term philosophy philos is easy to understand which denotes a "fondness for" or "attraction to."  To love something is to place it at the height of likeness, so that the one who loves wisdom will consider it valuable to look for. The problem arises at defining the term Sophia (wisdom)....
