...ore changes in the future. This ability to accept that we have made mistakes in the past and use those errors to push to the future is what forms an inherent part of human nature. Those that can consider new ideas that may push beyond the limits of all preconceived knowledge are the ones who represent our species, as throughout our history we have questioned what we were told as fact. This will to change composes the way we make progress, the way science works, and the way our species moves from ignorance to wisdom, through rebellion and ingenuity. No attribute will ever be more central to our development as a species than the introduction of new ideas and their gradual acceptance among us, and our increasing ability to be open to these new theories is what will dramatically alter us, and will ultimately lead to our full understanding of the universe and who we are.
Te first theory is Constructivism. Constructivism is known that human are meaning makers. We are not neutral with respect to the world. We actively interpret the world and make meaning of something. By interpreting images to mean something we compel and impose its meaningful use. As humans we look at three cause such a physical causes, psychological causes and spirtual cuases. The second thoery is on Development. While we evolve in mental complexity through out lives we have adaptive balances or stages of mental complexity. Starting at infacy to late adulthood. There are six order of conciousness which are zero to five. We will be discussing only he stages two through four. We make meaning different depending of which order of conciousness we are in. The two places of grow are slow or very slow. One will never move backwards. The last thoery is Holding Enviroment which consist of three components. The three components are confirmation,contradiction and continuty. Confirmation is described as holding on, support and encourgement. It appeals to our yearning for belonging. Contradiction is described as letting go, challenege and setting limits. It appeals to our yearning for agency,acheivement and autonomy. Continuty is described as staying out, remaining in place and being there. It appeals to our need for stability and predictability. '' A healthy holding enviroemnt provides an ingenious blen of support and challene and attends to the relationship between a persons mental capacity and the demands placed upon her by the cultural curriculum '' (Kegan;
The anthropic principle, as defined by carter, basically means that especially favorable conditions such as temperature, chemical balance, and the environment are prerequisites for our very existence and that the universe evolves by no m...
...ugh I never ever thought that I would hear myself say this, I am curious as to what kind of knowledge the children and educators of the future will pull from these theories that the finders of them.
The Behavior Theory has continued to build on “how humans’ actions and emotions developed, are sustained, and are extinguished through principles of learning (Walsh, 2013).”
In this paper I will explain what objective knowledge is and why we can have objective knowledge. I will clearly define several key terms that are crucial to this discussion. With these definitions in mind, I will explain the necessity of objective knowledge for reason and reality. Then, I will outline and expound on a reduction absurdum argument, explaining the contradictory postulate and exposing a contradiction. Finally, I will describe the view of Global Skepticism, and show how the Global Skeptic lives in opposition to his or her outlook. Through these arguments, it will be apparent that logic and reality demand the existence of objective knowledge.
To conceive – or to think in terms of concepts – is to make an epistemic claim, which may not be the same as attributing of something that it possibly exists in reality. The philosophy of the mind remains indebted to Kripke’s distinction between epistemic possibility (how things could conceivably be) and metaphysical possibility (how things could really be). What could conceivably be the case might be metaphysically impossible (i.e.: impossible to instantiate in a possible world), and this is to be known a posteriori rather than a priori. What do the problem of ethnocentrism, the problem of obstacle-concepts, and the problem of conceivability have in common? Firstly, they invoke a belief in a set of concepts which they purport to be the best available description of the world. Secondly, they involve a certain bias that awaits critical reflection. In ethnocentrism, it is the cultural bias of the Western or Westernized researcher; in the philosophy of science, it is the sociological bias of the prevalent scientific community; in the philosophy of the mind, it is the bias of the individual mind questing after a mind-independent reality. Finally, these biases are smuggled into the
I must note, however, that Bradley is particularly frustrating insofar as he eschews any sustained metaphysical investigations, claiming that metaphysics is a matter separate from his logical concerns. Just at the point that one would demand a more determinate account, he remarks that to really consider such questions would involve him in metaphysics, which is not his present objective. However, as I hope to show, his entire theory of judgment rests on a clearly metaphysical consideration of the nature of time and space and, in fact, commits him to rather bizarre claims about the nature and function of singular judgments and indexicals. The notion that objects of experience are themselves symbolic will allow Bradley to unite his metaphysic with his theory of intentionality and eventually fund those features of his account that are particularly relevant to our purposes: viz., his anti-psychologism, from which naturally follows his attack on the impoverished apophantic paradigm in logic, his insistence on a distinction between logical and grammatical form, and his claim that all judgments, properly understood, are hypothetical judgments.

Behavioural Learning can be classified as an umbrella of theories that “assume that learning takes place as the result of responses to external events” (Solomon, Bamossy, Askegarard and Hogg, 2013). A definition provided by Owen (2014) reads “a process in which experience with the environment leads to a relatively permanent change in behaviour or the potential for a change in behaviour” forms an understanding of this umbrella term that has been built through the work of “Pavlov, Thorndike and B.F.Skinner” (Bailey, 20...
