  • non theological concept of evil mai kya likha
    You wouldn't like me when i'm angry Because I always back up my rage with facts and documented sources. |Philosophy|
  • thehulk said:

    non theological concept of evil mai kya likha

    Problem of evil.. argument of non theologians regarding how evil creates inconsistencies among attributes of god eg Hume ka willing and able wala..
    # Then arguments in defense of god existence.. instrumentalists, free Will, illusion
    # criticism of theologians view: criticism of above arguments

  • 3(a) kant in critique of pure reason has explained spave and time..
    Features of space time
    Criticism of earlier view of space time: as empirical percepts but Kant space time as pure percept
    Empirical percepts don't provide objectivity to knowledge but knowledge is system of SAJ.

    How space and time explains SAJ in mathematics:
    #Airthmetic: 2+2=4: how synthetic and apriori as airthmetic is function of time
    # geometry: straight line is the possible shortest distance: how synthetic and aprori as geometry is function of space.

    Criticism of above
    # lp: Kant use psychological method..with only logical analysis only analytical and synthetic
    # huuserl in his view on avoidance of psychologism: explained math on the basis of psychological beliefs. Math objects being ideal objects are true in themselves dnt depend on anything.

    3(b)
    Clear and distinct idea
    Decarte propounded Cartesian method to find certain and indubitable knowledge. According to him starting point of knowledge must be clear and distinct and is self evident in nature.
    # impressed by mathematics axioms and analysed it and devised 4 rules to find Clear and distinct idea( criteria of truth) ..wrote 4 rules..
    # epistemology and how external object existence is proved:
    Method doubt... established cogiti ergo sum. It is first self evident truth. Clear and distinct.. proves the existence of soul...then existence of god is proved..then I have idea of external object..I can't be cause of idea of this world and truthful nature of god won't allow me to get deceived by false notions of external object..this external objects exist..

    # criticism of epistemological status of clear and distinct idea: by Spinoza: Spinoza with vision of unity said anything apart from reality is mere abstraction. Clear and distinct ideas being separate and distinct from each other can't produce real connection between them thus no real knowledge is possible. Also criticised Descartes view of god of providing necessary connection between ideas.....

    2(a)
    # What is analytical and synthetic statements
    # all bodies are extended is analytical: as body implicitly implies it is extended in nature .thus it is tautology..meaning of statement is verified by its words itself( linguistic theory of necessary proposition)
    # All bodies are heavy: though we know the meaning of word body but to verify whether it is heavy or not , empirical experience is needed: thus synthetic
    # lp said there is categorical difference between analytical and synthetic statements. Kant criticised it with view of SAJ.
    Example every event has a cause: here event means successive moments. Cause means connection between two events..word cause is not present in ebevt thus synthetic in nature.
    # it is not analytical in nature as analytical gives only universal and necessary knowledge but according to kant knowledge is system of SAJ..this statement is synthetic as well as apriori ( causality is pure concept)

    2(b)
    Picture theory of meaning is central concept in early view of wiitengenstein philosophy. Picture thoery of meaning means language is the picture of world
    There is point to point correspondence between linguistic structure of language and metaphysical structure of reality.
    Flowchart is made showing linguistic and metaphysical structure
    Language is totality of propositions and reality is totality of facts.. propositions are truthful functions of facts. Pictures are actual states of affairs.. picture is true if it actually explain the true state of affairs

    According to picture theory word has fixed meaning and three principles: structural identity, isomorphic similarly, rules of projection: correspomdence of word and object through mental act.

    Criticism and use theory.
    #Wittengstein later criticised his early view and said how it is taken for granted that language has fixed Meaning..
    #There is no intrinsic meaning of word..meaning lies in its use..to understand its use ..it is required to understand the context.( Use and meaning theory)
    # philosophical problems arises due to use of word in its fixed meaning..
    # rules of correspondence is not mental act as it creates private language and soliocism..rules of language decides by language itself.
    #Example water is H20 , water is hot, water is cold..in first sentence is denotes equality and in other is shows quality of water.
    # he explained it with help of language games..as game is some sort of activity..similar language.. tools box example..as game is played by particular rule and application of one rule to other creates problem similarly one rule of language can't be applied to another..

    2(c)
    According to Aristotle substance is formed matter and is concrete individual. Form is principle of actualisation and matter is principle of potentiality..
    #Origin of Aristotle view is in criticism of Plato theory of ideas. Aristole was concerned with change and dynamism in world of becoming. According to plato, ideas are substance and exist in transcendental world..there is idea of good and all things move towards this idea of good.. ideas being in transcendental world and eternal don't explain change in this world of becoming. Aristotle criticsed this transcendental notion of substance and said end is in this universe only ,not outside the empirical world and replaced it with realistic notion of substance.( Form + matter)
    # with the help of causal theory, Aristotle concluded that all objects in this universe Is made of. Form and matter. Either form or matter is mere abstraction and only concrte individual is form plus matter ( substance)
    # what is form and matter
    How resolve change and permanence: with potentiality and actuality( explained it fully).. change due to potentiality and permanence as moving toward unmoved mover
