Are any of us real?

apaches
Objective_Being

We have lived life asuming we are real, asuming we exsist in this state. But can you prove that we do? How do you know that this, any of this is real at all. Perhaps it does perhaps it does not. The fact of the matter is that you can't just jump into some one else's body and see what they see. And you can't just know. Have you ever stopped to wonder about that? Really taken the time to think about it? The question should be are we alone? It should be am I alone. Becuse I have no proof that you a...

Those Who Take Selfies (Just By Themselves) Are Ego-Maniacs

FrEeMaSoN1692
briauna

Noun 1. egomaniac - an abnormally egotistical person egoist, egotist, swellhead - a conceited and self-centered person http://www.thefreedictionary.com/egomaniac Since I have established the meaning of what an ego-maniac is, I will say that selfies are the dirt of society. They are within the same category as reality tv shows and pornography (I'll admit that I do watch pornography). If people aren't ego-maniacs, then they wouldn't need to have things like Facebook and Twitter. They say th...

Anger can be a good moral motivation

philosophystudent231
swagner713

Aristotle argues that there are two kinds of virtues, those that are taught and those that are learned through habit. He seeks to show that through our habits we devlope our characters. He believes we must seek out a middle ground in all virtues, as it is the nature of things to be destroyed by defect or excess. Anger, as a virtue, must also have a middle ground, meaning that it too can be good. 1) Virtue can be either intellectual or moral in nature, with the intellectual being developed thro...

Resolved: that there are moral absolutes.

Happyreclusive
Valladarex

I set out to prove that there are moral absolutes. I"ll use "moral" and "ethical" synonymously, choosing one over the other as style dictates. By "absolute," I mean something is that true in all possible worlds, necessarily true, and true in all situations. For example, the judgment "lying is wrong" is necessarily true and there is no circumstance when lying is right."My arguments are Kantian, so my opponent...

Is State Execution murder?

ooberman
JustinAMoffatt

The execution of a criminal is murder. It is premeditated, the victim is selected and unable to defend him or herself, and despite society agreeing to the murder, it is murder nonetheless. First, let's be clear that I am not defining murder as "illegal killing according to state laws" since this is arbitrary. Murder must mean, if it means anything, the killing of a person who need not be killed, but is still killed with intent. Yes, this means people killed in war as "collateral da...
