  • Strawson's Concept Of A Person
    2,464 words
    Skepticism Un refuted: Strawson, Stroud and Other Minds Prof. Stroud uses P.F. Strawson's "Persons" to refute skepticism about other minds. But does the refutation succeed I doubt it. Strawson is correct that "in order to ascribe experiences to oneself in the way that one does, one must 'also ascribe them (or be prepared to ascribe them) other others who are not oneself,' " but his analysis of the meaning of "person" doesn't follow. And even if it did, Strawson's work is completely irrelevant to...

  • Best Solution To Society As The Philosopher
    935 words
    A habit of mind is a way of thinking that one acquires over time. It is a type of thought that involves thinking beyond what society considers right or wrong, but acknowledging through complex thought, what is morally right. It is not easily achieved and is somewhat like a muscle, in that you have to build it up over time through intellectual work and hardship. Not everyone can achieve a strong habit of mind, in fact most don't. The habit is a way of thinking that allows one to communicate with ...
  • Replicates From The Movie Blade Runner
    1,337 words
    Introduction: In this essay I plan to prove, using three main concepts from John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding that replicates are not persons and can be retired without violating and moral, ethical, or legal laws. Replicates are merely man made intelligence and became a threat to real humans. Since the beginning of time man has killed animals and other humans that were a threat to others well-being. Why should these manufactured replicates be any exception Problem: The problem...
  • Particular Person
    361 words
    A self is a person's make-up. It is a set of different characteristics that makes up a particular person. It defines who a particular person is. Beliefs and ideas are part of what makes a self. A self is not always a permanent thing. For example, some people stay who they are for their entire lives. They don't change their outlook on things, or ways of thinking. But on the other hand some people can do a complete turn around of who they are and what they believe. If a person lives a bad life, do...
  • Joe's Mind
    641 words
    In an extract from Ian McEwan's 'Enduring Love' the main character, Joe, faces many conflicts emotionally. In Joe's mind, his emotions and rational thought pull him in two different directions when all he seeks is a common answer. In order to portray Joe's emotional distress, 'Enduring Love' is told through first person narration. Joe searches for logical explanations but the more he looks, the further the truth seems to be. The day after John Logan's death, Joe's conscious makes the whole event...
  • Two
    278 words
    During the course of the world's history, the people of the world have seen numerous actions that have prohibited the growth and expansion of the human mind. A subtile one of these is Non Specific Organizational patterns. This prohibits any neurons in the brain to connect with their partner the electrons. The electrons are then unable to create the route to form what is commonly called a new wrinkle, or sort of a short cut to that area making memorizing things easier. for example, when a first g...
  • Person Of Narrow Mind
    519 words
    In the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, narrow-minded is defined as lacking in tolerance or breadth of vision. A narrow-minded person can be considered as marked by or reflective of narrow interests, sympathies, and / or outlooks. However, the previous consideration is a somewhat broad assumption. Even though a person is of narrow-mind, does not necessarily mean they have few interests and outlooks. Definitely though, one who is narrow-minded should not be considered open-minded, but should not be co...
  • Their National History
    418 words
    History is told through a filter. Whether it is the filter of a persons mind or of a writer's pen. Events such as the assassination of JFK, or for my generation the explosion of the Challenger have a way of burning themselves in our minds. We remember where we were, what we were doing, even what we were wearing. One would think that the details of such an event would remain fairly accurate from person to person, however this is untrue. As in the example given in the reading selection after the C...

  • Their Murderous Actions
    1,241 words
    To Err is Human: Mad vs. Bad It is widely believed that all those who commit murder are insane. Many claim anyone would have to be out of one's mind to kill another person. But in the spirit of war, ordinary men and women are trained and encouraged to kill people without remorse or empathy. The circumstances under which death takes place affect whether or not it is acceptable to society. With this in mind, it is obvious that to class people as insane only because they kill, is inaccurate. In our...
  • Mindfulness In Our Relationships
    1,566 words
    Buddhists emphasize having 'Right Mindfulness' as a vital part of meditation as well as one of the most important steps in the eight-fold path to enlightenment. Having mindfulness is being completely aware of what happens to us and in us and only focusing on these things. Right mindfulness, defined as "the clear and single-minded awareness of what actually happens to us and in us, at the successive moments of perception", holds an essential role in the practice of Buddhist meditation (Klostermai...
