Is it possible to be romantically in love with more than one person?

Clearys
grilojo

1. Romantic love is the expressive and pleasurable feeling from an emotional attraction towards another person. 2. An individual can feel an emotional or physical attraction to more than one person. 3. Individuals can be romantically in love with multiple people because of the nature of the law of attraction, which draws similar energies together and can encourage an emotional attraction to like minded individuals. 4. Open relationships exist as an agreement between two individuals that they...

Intro- Renowned 20th Century Inventor and Visionary Buckminster Fuller said "We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, a...

Does reasoning presuppose freedom? Do you agree?

mjkim914
AwesomeSaucer

Lucas's argument that reasoning presupposes freedom is if determinism is true we would accept the arguments in conditioned reflexes. We would have no freedom and our process of reasoning would be determined. If people believe that reason does not exists, it basically means that we do have free will and are not determined. I believe with it because when humans are capable of reasoning with their own ideas and we are able to choose what is right or wrong. Our ideas, to ourselves, are trustworthy a...

Under what conditions would it be ethical to lie or keep secrets from your spouse or life partner?

MoralQuestions
Complicated_Mind

We should not allow ourselves to lie to our significant others. When it comes down to it I am not sure if there is ever a true "moral reason" to lie to or keep secrets from a significant other. I would argue that the person being lied to is deprived of information that they might find useful even if they found it unpleasant. When a person chooses to lie, that person may find it easier to lie in the future, and they may come to blur the line between white lies and more blame worthy lies. We make...
