Objections to the Repugnant Conclusion: David Parfit - Objections to the “Repugnant Conclusion” Using seemingly sound steps of logic, David Parfit has come to the “Repugnant Conclusion” that a world of very many people with very good lives is worse than a world of vastly more people with lives that are barely worth living. I shall outline his argument and conclusion, and then explain how we may evade such a counter-intuitive notion by reconsidering the way we measure and compare people’s wellbeing. I argue that all people inherently deserve a certain amount of welfare that exceeds that in a life that is just barely worth living, and that cannot be compensated for by an increase in number of people....   [tags: population, wellbeing]

How Does Fate Lead to the Tragic Conclusion of Romeo and Juliet? - How does fate lead to the tragic conclusion of Romeo and Juliet. In Romeo and Juliet, fate plays a big part in the events of the story. In Shakespeare’s time, the idea of fate was taken very seriously and Elizabethans believed that their lives were already planned out for them, in the stars, and there was nothing that could be done to change that. Because the idea of fate was taken so seriously, the audience would understand each reference Shakespeare made to fate throughout the play. From the very beginning, Shakespeare shows clearly that Romeo and Juliet’s lives are controlled by fate, and also that they are destined to suffer tragic consequences....   [tags: Shakespearean Literature] 545 words

Psychology as a Science: Jaegwon Kim's Argument and Why it is Faulty - ... It seems that to respond to Kim we must consider a multitude of scientific and philosophical issues. Kim’s essential argument relies on two different metaphysical principles. Firstly, he presents the ‘Casual Individuation of Kinds’ principle that states that kinds in science are individuated on the foundation of casual powers (Kim, 1992. p.17). Secondly, Kim gives us the ‘Casual Inheritance’ principle that states that if a mental state M is realized in a system at t in virtue of physical realization base P, the causal powers of this instance of M are identical with the causal powers of P, (Kim, 1992....   [tags: multiple realizability of mental properties]

Beneficial Platonic Perplexity - Beneficial Platonic Perplexity Thesis: Many of Plato’s works result in aporeia, specifically in Laches.

Induction is the process of going from the specific to the general thereby reaching a conclusion about the complex nature of the universe from a , thus far, limited set of observations.

Scientific Thinking, Economic Reasoning and Their Applications in the Caribbean - The Caribbean has had celebrated economists who, in their works, always sought to define the Caribbean experience and produce solutions to the region’s problems.
