  • Interaction Of Objects In The Third Dimension
    413 words
    The Facts of Life "Existence is Truth" Everything we know of is the third dimension, and its properties. Everything is composed of atoms, and atoms are composed of smaller particles. All particles are three dimensional because they have the dimension of height, the dimension of width, and the dimension of depth. Air is composed of particles in a low state of density, water is composed of particles in a more dense state, and physical objects are composed of particles in a high state of density. T...
  • Facts Of Ufo Existence
    1,031 words
    Do UFO's Exist or Not For half a century the subject of UFO has been discussed by scientists, ecologists, politicians, and common people around the world. It seems paradoxical, but the main question of their discussion concerns existence or non-existence of UFO itself, so many people is not sure that the very subject of their debate really exists. I share the opinion of those who do not believe in UFO saying that this phenomenon has not been scientifically proved, and everything its adherents op...
  • Heart Of The Metaphysics Of St Thomas

    Critical Analysis on the Metaphysics of St. Thomas Aquinas Metaphysics is the philosophical study whose object is to determine the real nature of things to determine the meaning, structure, and principles of whatever is insofar as it is.

  • One's Truth
    1,116 words
    The Only Truth Existing " We are, then, faced with a quite simple alternative: Either we deny that there is here anything that can be called truth - a choice that would make us deny what we experience most profoundly as our own being; or we must look beyond the realm of our 'natural' experience for a validation of our certainty. ' A famous philosopher, Rene Descartes, once stated, 'I am, [therefore] I exist. ' This statement holds the only truth found for certain in our 'natural " experience tha...
  • Idea Of An Infinite Existence
    708 words
    Can One Perceive Or Confirm The Existence Of An Idea Or Object That Is External To Him Mainly - God? 'I think therefore I am. ' Man wills, refuses, perceives, understands, and denies many principles. As explained by Rene' Descartes, man is a thinking thing, a conscious being who truthfully exists because he is certain that it is so. All that man perceives is internally present and not external to him or his mind. The focal point of the third meditation that must be dealt with is: Canon perceive ...
  • Kant's Theory Of Intuitive Space Needs
    2,692 words
    Kant: Explain and asses what you think to be the best argument Kant gives as his "Metaphysical Exposition of Space" (B 37-40) that space cannot be either and actual entity (Newtonian concept) or any independent relation among real things (Leibnizian concept be on). In other words, is he successful in arguing that space must be (at least) a form of intuition? Do any of his arguments further show that space must be ONLY a form of intuition and not ALSO something Newtonian or Leibnizian? In his Met...
  • Stronger Argument For The Existence Of God
    1,404 words
    Throughout history there have always been questions that we as humans are just unable to answer. The questions surrounding the topic of God seem to be ever elusive, just beyond our reach. The human race has made strides to answer these difficult questions. Unfortunately, as with all knowledge we find ourselves asking more difficult questions. The question of God's existence can be considered one of the most difficult questions ever ask by a human being. Attempts have been made on both sides of t...
  • Infants Representations Of Objects
    3,520 words
    I never realized when I played Peek-A-Boo with different infants in my family, that I was teaching them one of the most valuable lessons in their life. I just thought it was a game that infants liked to play and it made them laugh. I didn't know that this was so funny to them because they were fascinated with the fact that for one moment I wasn't there and a moment later I popped back up. Little did I know I was teaching them one of their most important accomplishments. Adults and older children...
  • Materialist's Real Object And The Perceived Object
    605 words
    George Berkeley was an Irish philosopher. His philosophical beliefs were centered on one main belief, the belief that perception is the basis for existence. In doing so, he rejected the notion of a material world in favor of an immaterial world. Berkeley felt that all we really know about an object we learn from our perception of that object. He recognized that in the materialist's view the real object is independent of any perceiver's perception. The pen on my desk would exist, whether or not I...
  • Form As The Essence Of An Object
    1,222 words
    Ontology One of the most controversial debates in philosophy has been over the nature of being. In the Pre-Socratic era the dispute focused on whether change was constant while our human perceptions made static separations so that we could make sense of our environment, or if being exists omnipresent ly and that our perceptions of diversity in matter are false. Plato tries to solve this dilemma with his theory of an objective reality in a realm different from that which we experience. Aristotle ...
  • Realist Believes Reality
    815 words
    What is real? When I place my hands on this keyboard, does it exist because I believe it does, or does it find its existence in the fact that it is a material object? Is anything real? A realist may allege that reality is objective and that material objects exist independently of our consciousness. This keyboard, for example, would exist even if I had never seen it before simply because it was produced. An anti-realist might argue that it exists because it has been assimilated into my conceptual...
  • Perception Of Physical Objects
    754 words
    Reality Is Perception Human reality is full of physical objects but how humans perceive these objects is completely objective, depending on the person and there senses. Perception of physical objects cannot occur without other objects that allow one to perceive these manifestations in the first place. When a sentient being acknowledges that they 'exist in a world of physical objects', they also confirm that their sense perception functions to an extent which allows them to reason, even to a smal...
  • Objective World And Objective Reflection
    701 words
    Kierkegaard felt that subjective reflection was more crucial to the individual life than objective reflection because it focused on passion and human existence instead of logic and impersonal truth. The objective world is the world of facts and truth independent of the perceptions of humans. Objective reflection focuses on what actually is, in the objective world. Objective reflection centers on the things and ideas in the world that can give meaning to life. The subjective world is the world of...
  • Themes In Existentialism
    1,340 words
    Existentialism refers to the philosophical movement or tendency of the nineteenth and twentyth centuries. Because of the diversity of positions associated with existentialism, a precise definition is impossible; however, it suggests one major theme: a stress on individual existence and, consequently, on subjectivity, individual freedom, and choice {3}. Existentialism also refers to a family of philosophies devoted to an interpretation of human existence in the world that stresses its concretenes...
  • Existence Of An External World
    828 words
    Descartes is famed by is familiar notion, "I think therefore I am (Cogito, ergo sum. )". It is a conclusion he has reached in his second meditation after much deliberation on the existence of anything certain. After he discovers his ability to doubt and to understand, he is able to substantiate his necessary existence as a consequence. What we doubt or understand may not ultimately correspond, but we can never be uncertain that we are in the process of thought. This idea is a major component in ...
  • Husserl's Idea Of A Presupposition Less Science
    4,449 words
    Wherever we run across a morality we find an assessment and ranking of human drives and actions. These assessments and rankings always express the needs of a community and herd: whatever profits it in the first place-and in the second and third-is also the supreme measure of the value of all individuals. By means of morality, individuals are led to be functions of the herd and to attribute value to themselves as merely functions morality is herd instinct in the individual. (Pg. 130, Nietzsche) N...
  • People Experience Similarity Among Natural Objects
    977 words
    David Hume 1. Hume says, If we would satisfy ourselves, therefore, concerning the nature of that evidence, which assures us to matters of fact, we must enquire how we arrive at the knowledge of cause and effect. Hume then makes the claim that; knowledge of this relation is not, in any instance, attained by reasonings a priori. The support for this claim is that knowledge of cause and effect arises entirely from experience. If you presented an object to a man that he had never come in contact wit...
  • Objective Reality Exist
    2,731 words
    Objective Reality Tyler Ross 2-28-05 Computer Throughout man's existence, we see questions arise upon certain topics. These questions are based upon answers of other questions, and everything becomes based upon itself. But it was Rene' Descartes who first decided to doubt, to challenge, and to reject all that could be rejected. Suspicious of all that he was able, and skeptical of all, which might be criticized, Descartes fell upon his famous postulate, "I think therefore I am". Although this the...
