    Russell, Experience, and the Roots of Science Perfect Speaker Theory Understanding Realism Russell''''s Transcendental Argument in: On The Foundations of Geometry Scepticism and Justification Wittgenstein on Scepticism and Certainty

    Preface to ''''Russell'''' - Past Masters 1995 Philosophy 1: A Guide Through the Subject Philosophy 2: Further Through the Subject The Quarrel of the Age: The life and Times of William Hazlitt The Meaning of Things

    Grayling was the third sibling. When he was 19 years old, his elder sister Jennifer was murdered in Johannesburg. She had been born with brain damage, and after brain surgery to alleviate it at the age of 20 had experienced personality problems that led to emotional difficulties [23] and a premature marriage. She was found dead in a river shortly after the marriage; she had been stabbed. When her parents went to identify her, her mother—already ill—had a heart attack and died. Grayling said he dealt with his grief by becoming a workaholic. [24]

    After moving to England in his teens, he spent three years at the University of Sussex , but said that although he applauded their intention to educate generalists, he wished to be a scholar, so in addition to his BA from Sussex, he also completed one in philosophy as a University of London external student. [25] He went on to obtain an MA from Sussex, then attended Magdalen College, Oxford , where he was taught by P. F. Strawson and A. J. Ayer , obtaining his doctorate in 1981 for a thesis on "Epistemological Scepticism and Transcendental Arguments". [26]

    Since the 20th century, professional philosophers contribute to society primarily as professors , researchers and writers. However, many of those who study philosophy in undergraduate or graduate programs contribute in the fields of law, journalism, politics, religion, science, business and various art and entertainment activities. [26]

    Traditionally, the term "philosophy" referred to any body of knowledge. [14] [27] In this sense, philosophy is closely related to religion, mathematics, natural science, education and politics. Newton's 1687 " Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy " is classified in the 2000s as a book of physics; he used the term " natural philosophy " because it used to encompass disciplines that later became associated with sciences such as astronomy , medicine and physics.

    Berkeley’s empirical theory of vision challenged the then-standard account of distance vision, an account which requires tacit geometrical calculations.  His alternative account focuses on visual and tactual objects.  Berkeley argues that the visual perception of distance is explained by the correlation of ideas of sight and touch.  This associative approach does away with appeals to geometrical calculation while explaining monocular vision and the moon illusion, anomalies that had plagued the geometric account.

    This animation looks at how some things that move us are beautiful, others are sublime. But the sublime move us more profoundly than the beautiful. That’s what the 18th century thinker Edmund Burke claimed in his book A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful.

Contemporary metaphilosophies within the Western philosophical tradition can be divided, rather roughly, according to whether they are associated with (1)  Analytic philosophy , (2) Pragmatist philosophy , or (3) Continental philosophy.

    The idea that philosophy is the handmaiden of theology, earlier propounded by the Hellenistic thinker Philo of Alexandria , is most associated with the medieval age and particularly with Aquinas. Aquinas resumed the project of synthesizing Christianity with Greek philosophy - a project that had been pursued already by various thinkers including Augustine , Anselm , and Boethius. (Boethius was a politician inspired by philosophy – but the politics ended badly for him. In those respects he resembles the earlier Seneca. And, like Seneca, Boethius wrote of the consolations of philosophy.)

    George Berkeley was one of the three most famous British Empiricists. (The other two are  John Locke and  David Hume.)  Berkeley is best known for his early works on vision ( An Essay towards a New Theory of Vision , 1709) and metaphysics ( A Treatise concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge , 1710; Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous , 1713).

    Berkeley’s empirical theory of vision challenged the then-standard account of distance vision, an account which requires tacit geometrical calculations.  His alternative account focuses on visual and tactual objects.  Berkeley argues that the visual perception of distance is explained by the correlation of ideas of sight and touch.  This associative approach does away with appeals to geometrical calculation while explaining monocular vision and the moon illusion, anomalies that had plagued the geometric account.

    This animation looks at how some things that move us are beautiful, others are sublime. But the sublime move us more profoundly than the beautiful. That’s what the 18th century thinker Edmund Burke claimed in his book A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful.

    “Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful - just stupid).” Robert A. Heinlein quotes (American science-fiction Writer, 1907-1988) “Theists, especially Christians, try to control and restrict us based on their views. If all Christians stop crusading against science, education, culture, art, sex and sexuality, religious freedom and such, stop dishonestly misrepresenting your beliefs as facts, and stop telling everybody else they re going to be tortured throughout eternity unless they join you, I assure you that you won t encounter nearly as much hostility.” ‘Religious apologists complain bitterly that atheists and secularists are aggressive and hostile in their criticism of them. I always say: look, when you guys were in charge, you didn’t argue with us, you just burnt us at the stake. Now what we’re doing is, we’re presenting you with some arguments and some challenging questions, and you complain.’ A.C. Grayling -With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.- Steven Weinberg, quoted in The New York Times, April 20, 1999 US physicist ‘There once was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time was called the Dark Ages.’ Richard Lederer -People who don t like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn t have such funny beliefs.- anon. “Rational arguments don’t usually work on religious people. Otherwise there would be no religious people.” - Gregory House, M.D. Season 4 Episode 2 The Right Stuff. -What s say you climb down off the cross, use the wood to build a bridge and get over it.- C. Titus

    It isn t up to the politicians to fix things. It is up to the people. And if they don t have a solution why do they insist that the least of us come up with a fix? The slag floats to the top and it is the politicians that are our weakest link with recovery. When the people get it together and act with community and common goodness toward a sustainable cultural way of life we will be able to relegate those who are elected to serve to service instead of to control of our lives. If we are not in control of our lives as a culture, as a people united toward a common good we are not worth advancing toward that end and will have to submit to the dictates of those who were elected to serve. Now they imagine they are the government and they are so long as we refuse to govern ourselves. It was intended to be a government of the people not a government of the select few. The young are duped by an education system that is fostered and controlled by a select few. They are raised to be subservient to those select few so they no longer have the vision or the tenacity to thrive from their own efforts and insights. Thank God there are enough young people who see this and are willing to cut their own path through the sham of government dependency. While they are still few there are ever more of them each decade. When our education system was founded it was created with the intent not do create masters but to create docile citizens who could be kept at bay and lead by the nose. More and more people are shunning Public Education for alternative ways to expand the mind and heart and spirit.

    Grayling was the third sibling. When he was 19 years old, his elder sister Jennifer was murdered in Johannesburg. She had been born with brain damage, and after brain surgery to alleviate it at the age of 20 had experienced personality problems that led to emotional difficulties [23] and a premature marriage. She was found dead in a river shortly after the marriage; she had been stabbed. When her parents went to identify her, her mother—already ill—had a heart attack and died. Grayling said he dealt with his grief by becoming a workaholic. [24]

    After moving to England in his teens, he spent three years at the University of Sussex , but said that although he applauded their intention to educate generalists, he wished to be a scholar, so in addition to his BA from Sussex, he also completed one in philosophy as a University of London external student. [25] He went on to obtain an MA from Sussex, then attended Magdalen College, Oxford , where he was taught by P. F. Strawson and A. J. Ayer , obtaining his doctorate in 1981 for a thesis on "Epistemological Scepticism and Transcendental Arguments". [26]

    Since the 20th century, professional philosophers contribute to society primarily as professors , researchers and writers. However, many of those who study philosophy in undergraduate or graduate programs contribute in the fields of law, journalism, politics, religion, science, business and various art and entertainment activities. [26]

    Traditionally, the term "philosophy" referred to any body of knowledge. [14] [27] In this sense, philosophy is closely related to religion, mathematics, natural science, education and politics. Newton''s 1687 " Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy " is classified in the 2000s as a book of physics; he used the term " natural philosophy " because it used to encompass disciplines that later became associated with sciences such as astronomy , medicine and physics.
