In actuality the word 'lie' encompasses a gamut of different instances of falsehood. 'Lie' could refer to a deliberate attempt to deceit and mislead, deliberate concealment of truth, a 'white lie' told with the intention of benefitting someone and even exaggeration. The concept of 'lying' leads to studies on why people find the need to lie, and the psychology behind the phenomenon - what makes people fabricate stories, for no obvious gain, or lie incessantly even when the benefit is negligible,...
Ethics plays a major part in everyones daily lives. People are constantly bombarded to make ethical decisions whether it is a low-level purchase such as a cup of coffee or an expensive pair of runners. As a people, we are concerned about the impression we give off, what our decisions say about us. In order to be a part of society, one must conform to the norms set by its peers. Ethical philosophies are a starting point towards the motivations and process decision makers must go through. ...
It must be possible for an empirical scientific system to be refuted by experience Karl Popper, 1959. Popper developed the concept of falsifiability, part of the scientific method, to describe the characteristic of a scientific theory which makes it testable by empirical research (based on observation or direct experience). Falsifiability was introduced as a solution to one of the main problems of induction: forming a general statement from the specific assumes the future will be like the past...
Demea is the first to react to Cleanthes' argument from design. He does not approve of the claim that God and man are at all similar. Second, he is unhappy that Cleanthes is trying to use an a posteriori proof rather than a priori for God's existence (since the argument by design proves both God's nature and his being). A posteriori proofs are only probable proofs, not definite proofs. That is, when we give an argument from experience we can only prove that our conclusion is more likely than...
It is common knowledge that we all make judgments. Judgments about people we meet, what we or others should look like, or even judgments about world affairs and nature. Yet what knowledge do we have instilled in us or how is knowledge presented to us that allow us to make the judgments we make. With that in mind, the followed text is comparing analytic and synthetic judgments while holding emphasis on synthetic a priori knowledge as reflected in Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. I will then take...
The strength of John Lennox's argument is that he uses in every thesis he debates on quotation from reliable resources such as noble prizewinners as they are knowledgeable, for example, Sir Peter Medawar, Eugene Vickers, Albert Einstein and Arnold Penzias. In the first thesis, John Lennox made it very clear that faith is not blind by explaining "The White Head Theory". This is a very strong point as it shows that human being became scientific because they believed in the God. In...
Euclid, a Greek mathematician and teacher, changed the course of the world. Euclid's work not only affected the work of other prominent scientists to come after him, but also the lives of ordinary people, which contributed to the rise of modern science in western civilization. What is perplexing is that despite him changing the course of world, we know very little about him. Unlike some other well-known historical figures, Euclid's influence did not spread simply by fame. Historians don't even...
According to the Platos make it of disposition about animation besides silence of a philosopher, the ride of herd is not brainy that those who catechize themselves correctly to the workout of beliefs are prominence story practicing not subject further or less than staining or fatality. If this is so, stable would be positively alchemistic that men, who had throughout their lives searched without reservation this, should grumble when right came - the over firm which they had, as accordingly...
TRIZ or The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving was developed by Genrikh Altshuller. Altshuller theorized that while the evolution of technology seemed haphazard in its stages, it does follow repeatable patterns. (Fey & Rivin, 2007) The concepts and tools that TRIZ uses are not tied to specific objects, but more the resolution of contradictions involved in those objects and therefore can be used on any technology regardless of its origin, category or its nature. In the paper we will...
