In this essay I will show that while Clarke makes a strong claim that our experience establishes the existence of chains of dependent beings, and that the chain must be (a) caused by an aprioi cause or be an aspect of an infinite continuation of contingent beings which begins with a necessary/independent being; the argument does not justify the possibility of an independent, contingent deity that caused the universe. This conclusion will be supported by a string of critiques and a discussion of...

He attempts to dissolve a number of dualisms, which are; the Kantian dualism of sensibility and understanding, the dualism of conceptual versus non-conceptual content, the dualism of scheme and content, the dualism of reason and nature, and the debate of realism and anti-realism. McDowell is mostly influenced by Kant. This can be clearly seen in his dualism of sensibility and understanding, where the terms 'receptivity...
Jurisprudential debate concerning the nature of law is often thought of as a long-running battle between two schools of thought - the rival camps of "natural law" and "legal positivism".

In regard to hackers, for example, are they testing the system or performing an immoral action? Will genetic engineering improve the quality of peoples' lives or start to destroy it? How do we identify when an ethical dilemma exists? There are, indeed, many grey ethical areas. Plagiarism is where the work of others is copied, but the author presents it as his or her own...
It's certainly true what Anthony de Mello has quote that "We see and understand things not as they are but as we are". In order to make it crystal clear, it's much comprehend as 'we interpret truths in our own way of understanding and not as the way it is'. I would agree that there're factors that affect our way of understandings such as biological limitation, profession, culture, language and so forth. The next few paragraphs will be further discuss on this quote in terms of ways of...
