The Republic is structured in a way that supports and strengthens the need for philosopher-kings, because through them the Kallipolis is brought to life and genuine happiness of society is achieved. It is important to recognize that Plato understands his utopia only as a concept but not as a political reality. Therefore justifications of Plato's thought do not have to be adapted to the reality of Greece but to the reality of the "retained in heaven" (592b) Republic. Hence, it would be...
Everybody thinks about certain things all the time. We're human; it's what we do. But a common misconception about philosophy is that it's just a waste of time that is used on too much thinking. This couldn't be farther from the truth. It is correct in saying that philosophy often requires a lot of thought, but how could a topic such as the existence of God or about how one should live their life not require a great deal of thought? The field of philosophy covers a very broad range of...
The quote "We see and understand things not as they are but as we are" is able to relate to all of the ways of knowing, but mainly refers to the way how emotion affects the ways of knowing through perception and language. The quote declares that we don't fully perceive what actually exists in its original form, but we perceive how we want it to exist individually in the context of our minds and self-created reality. This is heavily due to the way our emotion effects the other ways of...
In this paper I will discuss Baruch Spinoza's argument in Ethics regarding that proposition 7 follows directly from proposition 6. Spinoza is claiming that God is the only substance that exists and uses his propositions to prove this. In Part A, I will explain why Spinoza believes that existence belongs to the nature of substance follows directly from the fact that substance cannot be produced by anything else. Afterwards, in Part B, I will critically dissect the argument and explain why I find...
Religion was at the forefront during the eighteenth century; as a result, many different views and ideals arose. The Puritans derived all of their beliefs from the Bible, while Benjamin Franklin, a Deist, believed that the Bible was mostly a book of fables. Although the two maintained some basic similar beliefs, most of their convictions resulted in conflicting views. Both believed that there was an existing God; however, the Puritans believed that their God was merciful, allowing deliverance...
Utilitarianism, also known as the "English common sense philosophy" dominated the Western world during most of the nineteenth century. Utilitarianism is a normative ethical theory that places the seed of right and wrong solely on the outcomes (consequences) of choosing one action/policy over other actions/policies, hence also sometimes referred to as "the Consequentialism". The history of this theory dates back to its true pioneer Jeremy Bentham ( 1748-1832) who gave rise to...
This project will begin by presenting an extensive biography of Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher. He was a genius who almost single-handedly created the foundations for modern statistical science. [11, p.738] Therefore it is vitally important to acknowledge his life, which rewarded statistics with its foundations. We shall discuss many of the basic ideas of statistics which are required to understand statistical estimation. When scientists carry out experiments they use the observed data obtained from...
