A brilliant man spoke today, on what many of us (in the broadest sense) have become, philosophically. Here's a link : http://www.zerohedge....­

Albert,...The power of suggestion, huh? Were you a marketing executive? Your points make sense, but you know I like a bit more definition and clarity, because when there is too much vagueness, there is also too much room for misinterpretation,...and getting things wrongtongue

What do you mean, "some objectivity to the sciences"? Elaborate. How are the sciences relevant to this discussion? In respect to what? How we perceive reality? lol you lost me, no offense.


Damn yo I don't think I can make it to this discussion. I really really want to go and continue further with this discussion face to face and not having to wait for a response etc.

Ramon, I think you mentioned that rationality was subjective,....I took that to mean the way a person works out his/her logic within has a cultural/experiential base,.....but math and science is logic to the highest degree, and its more objective than not. So maybe my confusion was in understandind what you meant by rationality being subjective.tongue

Yea that's what I meant. And yes mathematical logic, whether induction/deduction, or any of the other sciences, is objective, for the most part. quantum mechanics and general relativity still haven't been unified.....

When you step into the realm of science, one can clearly be wrong if their deduction skills suck or if your reasoning is flawed. Hence why it is objective


Another issue is that we don't know EVERYTHING there is to know. We only know, or claim to understand what we perceive throughout our perceived reality. So even IF our reasons, or propositions were legit, and are rationale were or seemed correct, it could in fact be irrational. I can't think of an example, but I'm speaking theoretically. Well you can use any theory as an example.

But you can't necessarily apply scientific rigor to a social/human construct.

I felt that I slightly wandered away from the philosophical topic haha
