Another felt the trunk and reported that an elephant is a great snake. Another felt a tusk and reported that an elephant is like a sharp plough share. And so on.

  • Augustine Developing Self Knowledge
    1,155 words
    Justin W. Truth and piety are two terms Augustine illustrates throughout his book Confessions. There are two types of truth: the truth found in God, but also the truth found in oneself.

    La Croix in his essay disputes the position set forth by Harry Frankfurt in his article "Descartes on the Creation of the Eternal Truths" (The Philosophical Review, 1977), charging that Frankfurt misrepresents Descartes view of Gods nature and power. According to La Croix, Frankfurt holds that, in claiming that God created the eternal truths and could have done the opposite with respect to establishing the law of contradiction, Descartes conceived of Gods power as extending beyond the laws of lo...
