Regular Meeting - Every Second Sunday of the month

This month we will meet at Zephyr Cafe.  The topic this month will be "What is reason?".

 

A few issues you might wish to think about are...

Is reason a reliable way to know the truth?

Is reason the same thing as deductive logic?

Is reason the same thing as the use of syllogisms?

Is induction a kind of reasoning?

    Brian,
    The logical flaw in the Monty example is that the one who picks never has more than a 50/50% chance, as it is already factored in that Monty will take away one of the 3 choices, and thus leave only 2 choices. To say that the one who chooses has a 33% chance at the beginning is simply not accurate. The chooser never has a 33% chance, as Monty will always take away the door with the goat. Hence, the chooser always only has one door with a goat and one with a car, so switching never makes a difference. Agree???????
