Re: The necessary context of action, purpose, and ambition

People will to discuss if they think you have something they desire, make it personal. No, the basis of discussion must be disinterested, otherwise keep with the language everybody talks it only matters how much.

Re: On the Alienated Westerner Developing the Pagan Mindset

I would doubt that all christianisms are world denouncing though, in the philosophy of Augustine for example everything comes from god and god is good so everything is good, we could say then that any denouncing of the world could be considered some kind of blasphemy and that is coming from a chris...

Re: On the Alienated Westerner Developing the Pagan Mindset

Humanity seems to be the collective of human (quantity doesn't help the definition), is it some essence (that is unique and not defining) or the commonality (that isn't unique and defining)? Plato was probably right when he said that forms are imperfect copies of perfect Ideas, humanity is an imperf...

Re: Free Will/Determinism

Free will is taken to be the source of moralistic judgements in which the effects of good and evil are the causes of it themselves and where free will itself is not subjected to such moralistic judgements as it is the source of it. It serves an artificial system of morality - that passes itself as n...

Re: Alright Geniuses get your thinking caps on

I quoted from Kant's book Critique of Pure Reason, DQ is coming from a position of pure reason.

I think he argues somewhere i...

Re: Alright Geniuses get your thinking caps on

The major difference between the Kantian approach or a Nietzschen-Quinnian one would be the assumption that "thoughts as they truly are" would be an acceptable or logical coherent thought. Do you mean that the Quinnian position assumes 'thoughts as they really are"? Kant rejects more 'thoughts' abo...

Re: Almost no one cares about wisdom enough.

One way of saying it is that gravity is attraction, attraction and repulsion are close to desire. It's about establishing the ultimate reality. You may talk of a will without an object, the form of the formless, to distinguish from forms and formlessness.

Re: What one discards as useless

jufa, are you asking questions or are you asking rethorical questions? Do you think that you've answers to your questions or not?

Are you playing the Master or the student? If you stick to any of them, you will be a failure.

Re: Almost no one cares about wisdom enough.

If you told me what is wisdom I could take more care about it? What makes you think that it may be complete?

Let's spin the issue back on its head again, desire and attachment are prevalent on human beings until death may take them apart. Wisdom is living according to nature.

Yeah exactly, I wrote that as one of the ways you can avoid the conclusion that Totality is caused. It's just that Totality is talked by QRS sometimes as 'all there is'.

Re: Alright Geniuses get your thinking caps on

It would be better if you provided quotes of what you think DQ is arguing for. If one regards the totality to be a thing then it is caused by its constituents and it is self-caused as there's no other thing to cause it, that is far from being uncaused. I think DQ uses these two definitions for causa...
