To the Thinkers:
As I struggle each month to come up with something that connects philosophy and the modern world, I keep running into the same place. Most every topic of consideration inevitably gets you back to a common nothing-place where the terms of any discussion morph constantly almost to the point of pointlessness. For this reason I am going to consider a topic that came out of several recent meet ups where we talked about the recent National Day of Reason. Can we approach any ethical system, a system that provides guidance on what to do in our world going forward, through reason alone or must we inevitably rely on something that gets us into the arguments of a moral system that is grounded somehow into faith-based things like religions and related stuff to guide our thoughts.
Want proof. Do any Google search on the subject.
Obviously an appeal to humanism is the most likely way forward but I need to focus things some more. Any ideas would be helpful.
More to come.
