Ryle described his theory as “All talk about minds and mental states is nothing more than talk about observable behavior and dispositions to behave. It is a category mistake to think that mental talk refers to private goings on inside a peculiar substance, the mind” (Lewis). According to Ryle, the commonsense view of the mind (that mental states are inner causes of behavior) is incorrect and embraced dualism, which is the negative thesis of logical behaviorism (Sober 215)....   [tags: Strengths and Weaknesses, Philosophy, Dualism]

However, the statement made is rather too simplistic. There is strong evidence that there were several reasons other than the weaknesses of the Catholic Church that played an important role in causing the German Reformation....   [tags: Papers] 1392 words

Weaknesses of Descartes' Arguments - Descartes was incorrect and made mistakes in his philosophical analysis concerning understanding the Soul and the foundation of knowledge.  Yes, he coined the famous phrase, “I think therefore I am,” but the rest of his philosophical conclusions fail to be as solid (Meditation 4; 32). Descartes knew that if he has a mind and is thinking thoughts then he must be something that has the ability to think. While he did prove that he is a thinking thing that thinks (Meditation 3; 28), he was unable to formulate correct and true philosophical arguments and claims.  For instance, his argument for faith that a non-deceiving God exists and allows us to clearly reason and perceive was a circular argument.  Another issue with Descartes' philosophy is that he wanted to reconcile scientific and religious views, which is wrong since the two maintain completely different foundational beliefs and they should exist exclusively- without relation to the other.  Thirdly, he believed that the mind was the Self and the Soul, failing to recognize that humans have bodies and the outside world exists, and through which we gain our knowledgeable....   [tags: Philosophy]
