human-environment interactions in geography has gone through a bewildering series of theoretical, philosophical and methodological revolutions in the past years, ranging from the environmental determinism, regional geography, regional science, quantitative-spatial science, radical-Marxist geography, structuralism, feminist geography to postmodern geography. As advocated by the humanistic geography where greater attention is given to humans and their consciousness in the analysis of geographical events
that the mind and body were split into two separate entities which interacted – this view is known as (philosophical) dualism. He divided the universe into two fundamentally different realms or ‘realities’; there was the physical matter (res extensa), which is extended to space and time and there was non-material, non-extended mind (res cogitans). Many philosophers hold to a dualism of mind and matter, or mind and body.
are instantiate properties like conscious, phenomenal ones. Some dualism properties such as “Fundamental property dualism” deals with mental properties as main priority . This dualism interact with law-like ways with fundamental properties of physics. Fundamental is main property of this dualism. But ontologically existence of this theory is not depended. Lets talk about difference between substance dualism and property. Property dualism says that there is only one type of substance. This substance
existence of God are not only unreliable but weak and inconsistent. Descartes fell victim to a circular argument concerning where the ability for humans to clearly perceive and reason, mistakenly tried to reconcile science and religion in terms of mind/body dualism, and he rejected all empirical knowledge. The philosophy of Descartes possibly had good intentions but failed time and again. If Descartes had doubted less about his mind and his existence and tried to experience more of what the physical
the mind, other individuals can only try and interpret. In philosophy, the critical analysis on the relationship between the brain and mind is known the mind body problem. The following schools of thought have tried to solve the mind body problem. Dualism, this school of thought subscribes to the belief that the mind and brain exist independently of each other. Other dualists deny the fact that the mind is a part of the brain. This is because the mind and brain don’t share same
It was during this period when Gothic literature reached its peak making known the true side of the society imprisoned by the ideals of behaviour and repression. Since its inceptions, Gothic literature has undergone several vicissitudes due to the inherent complexity of the topics and especially by historical, cultural and political differences, but it has always emerged as a response to the concerns of the dissatisfied souls against laws in order to experience forbidden sensations and escape from

a sin, I read Anslem’s On the Fall of the Devil to find out, not how the devil fell from grace, but why he fell from grace. By primarily interpreting Anselm’s accounts from On the Fall of the Devil, and reviewing Saint Augustine’s view on the Devil’s, biblical texts, and other philosophical interpretations, I will compare various accounts to discover why the devil chose to turn away from God and why he ultimately fell from grace. In On the Fall of the Devil, Anselm argued that in order for the angels
groups believe this while modern day thiests take it in a different context. Thus, the foundation of spiritual belief is unstable and is able to change over time. Furthermore, an argument is made that science has been the sole reason why life gets better and how good and evil are determined. Thereby, science has provided insight on how to make humans happier, instead of the source of happiness being due to an outside force (Koch, 2014). This proves that there is uncertainty and disagreement to what evil
The practice of science should always be undertaken with precautions to guard against against one's own prejudices. In scientific inquiry, the search for an absolute, objective truth is not obtainable since the interpretation of empirical data is based on factors more that the data itself: science relies on shaping principles which are as varied as there are scientists. This means that two scientists looking at the same data are likely to come up with different theories based on the philosophical
