In my point of view, Stelios is still the same person and not a clone. A clone is a copy of the exact same person who looks the same physically. The reason why I supported that Stelios is not a clone was due to the fact that even when being in Mars, Stelios would still continue to perceive things as how he did on earth. Base on Descartes theory on soul, assume that our physical body is only a host that stores our soul and that our soul is our mind that controls our body movements and thinking....
Here's the question: In your own words, how would you describe the connections between the idea of white(ness) and the themes in Buckingham's work? *If you want to include references to our reading and conversation on Kirk Varnedoe's lecture last week-where we covered topics ranging from how history is recorded, how knowledge is formed, and how we come to believe in or trust the art we live with-please do. One paragraph. Buckingham forces the viewer to investigate further into his work; he...
Constructive empiricism is the view that "Science aims to give us theories which are empirically adequate; and acceptance of the theory involves as belief it is empirically adequat. Where a theory is empirically adequate "if and only what is says about the observable things and events in this world, is true - exactly if it 'saves the phenomena." Constructive empiricism is therefore committed to both an empirical distinction between observable and unobservable phenomena and an...
With technology taking the forefront in communication, world has virtually shrunk! Distance and time are no more any hindrances for effective interactions and communications. Internet has so much invaded our day to day lives that without internet, we feel we are almost without bread! As any technological advance brings in good, not so good and bad with it-take auto mobiles, electricity, movies whatever-even the communication technology has its own good and bad. Hacking is something that has...
No human could truthfully deny a lack of curiosity. As a human race, we are instinctively inquisitive and questioning. We want to know why events occur and how; our lives are centred upon discovering the unknown, or proving the known. We want to acquire as much knowledge and as many perspectives as we can. Knowledge is a perceived mental result and specifically is the "information and skills acquired through experience or education" and the "awareness or familiarity gained by...
C) Give at least one present day example of how induction and falsification respectively are used either in your own or a different scientific discipline. In the some kinds of research programs, for example, finding the sediment and contaminant source. In this kind of research, researchers are sampling from different area, without any hypothesis that based on the rules has been formed. The samples were taken and collected from: 1- rain water that was collected directly 2- the sediment in...
Modern theory of knowledge was introduced by the famous philosopher Immanuel Kant with his "critical system". Some authors considered once theory of knowledge as a part of philosophy under the term epistemology, however nowadays it has developed to a science on its own - investigating not only areas of knowledge, ways of acquiring knowledge and methods, but also the use of theory of knowledge in teaching, in organizing libraries and many other quite practical implementations. For me,...
What is life. Life is what you make it. During my journey to different parts of the world, I came to know more about life the living standard of the people of the world. Different religion, different languages and different culture. But one thing I notice all are afraid of one thing that is GOD or ALLAH. What is GOD? GOD is Love. Yes GOD IS Great Ocean of Death after death only you can meet GOD. Even in day to day life by meditation you come across GOD. There are four stages in Life, One is...
The purpose of this essay is not explaining why Aristotles theory of friendship did not occupy a very prominent place. I try to generally appraise and research the position of friendship in Aristotle's ethics; I think if this work can help us pay more attention on Aristotle's theory of friendship in the framework of his ethics, our understanding of his whole theory of ethics could be more comprehensive. However, before we do this work, we need to do some necessary discussions on the position of...
I am going to compare and analyze the three theories; Soft, hard and indeterminism. I will demonstrate what consequences they have on freewill as well if the universe entire history is predetermined. Strong determinism is the theory that states that every single thing that happens in the universe is determined and governed by the natural law. For example, how earth moves, what movie you chose to see in the cinema. A strong determinist strictly believes that nothing could influence this...
