What type of philosophy do you dig?
    #525372 - 02/09/11 06:03 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

What type of philosophy do you vibe with?

I love philosophy and it's all so fascinating. I dig so many different kind of philosophies that it's like a quantum mandala philosophizing inside of my brain. :feelsgoodman:

I think existentialism really speaks to me. It's one of my favorites.

I find it difficult to go in depth and have a good conversation about complex philosophical theories through text, I usually don't bother unless I'm right there in the room with the person I'm trying to communicate with to convey my points and absorb theirs with confirmed succession...

I agree.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.

I guess it depends on your definition of open minded; someone who takes possibility in your views, someone who accepts their validity or someone who respects them but disagrees. Or perhaps all are valid.

As I've said before, in my view, open mindedness is a funny word that gets thrown around.  People assume it means you have to accept the possibility of every crack pot theory that gets thrown your way.  I don't believe this to be true. Rather skepticism and doubt should rule open mindedness, again in my beliefs.

I always viewed Carl Sagan as a perfect example of an open minded, and rational, person. 

Yet, he spent a large chunk of his writing career debunking pseudo-science and various crack-pot theories

from "Demon Haunted World":  "Pseudoscience differs from erroneous science. Science thrives on errors, cutting them away one by one. False conclusions are drawn all the time, but they are drawn tentatively. Hypotheses are framed so they are capable of being disproved. A succession of alternative hypotheses is confronted by experiment and observation. Science gropes and staggers toward improved understanding. Proprietary feelings are of course offended when a scientific hypothesis is disproved, but such disproofs are recognized as central to the scientific enterprise. Pseudoscience is just the opposite. Hypotheses are often framed precisely so they are invulnerable to any experiment that offers a prospect of disproof, so even in principle they cannot be invalidated. Practitioners are defensive and wary. Skeptical scrutiny is opposed. When the pseudoscientific hypothesis fails to catch fire with scientists, conspiracies to suppress it are deduced. "

I like natural philosophy and epistemology most I think.  Ontology is fun, but it can be a circle jerk and often suffers from communication breakdown when people define words differently.

Which is why you should be clarifying what you're saying instead of being pragmatic, and using only your own ideas; in the case of an intellectual conversation, that is.

Cynicism.


--------------------
"To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic."
