I will post my other two contentions later. When you walk into a museum, You usually will see massive banners and advertisements telling you about the rarest artifact that they have in the museum, And where to find it. Let us take the example of the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo Da Vinci, An Italian. Think about why it is on display in the Louvre in France? Ladies and gentlemen the resolution before the house is this house would require museums to return artifacts to their country of origin....

Do we have free will?

ChristianApologia
TheUnexaminedLife

Ayn Rand argued: Man's free choices come from focusing his mind. Whether to focus it or not, How much to focus, Or what to focus on: Man can keep his mind in full focus. Drift away without focus.

We are free and in control of what facts and ideas the mind will focus on. Kochen and Conway argue that we can only have free will if we live in...

My argument is very simple: despite what Jordan Peterson and others on the anti-SJW side have been saying so far, the Progressive Left is not a result of postmodernism. Although my understanding of postmodernism (post-structuralism) is limited, everywhere I have looked it seemed obvious that the postmodern intellectuals - Derrida, Foucault, Baudrillard, Latour - are as much opposed to Capitalism as they are to Marxism. Consequently, although feminists, BLM, etc often make use of tools very s...

Objective rationality is a myth

26hungb
TheUnexaminedLife

Rationality def: the quality of being based on or in accordance with reason or logic. My argument is based on the fact that humans behave according to perceptions, with perceptions being the information and senses that are available to a person. Premise 1: Perceptions can never be objective or factual. No one is capable of omnipotence. Premise 2: Human behaviours and decision-making is based off of perceptions. Inference 1: Human decision making can never be rational or logical in an...
