The Meaning of Accessing Our Thoughts

- It has been a common philosophical principle, since Descartes, that each of us has an ultimate access to our thoughts. This principle implies individual’s ability to process inner thoughts in such a way that nobody else can. Even though Descartes has great confidence in his belief of privileged access, there still exists some skeptical doubts concerning whether human beings could possess such ability. As an individualist, I have strong belief in human’s power over our thoughts. Although there are circumstances that can cause us to make mistake about what we think, the privileged access to our own thoughts are undeniable. In order to prove the truth of our privileged access, I will use some...   [tags: philosophy]

Society’s Thoughts on Thoughts

- Every individual has an opinion and it could be factual or it could be completely incorrect. In the United States, Americans have the ability to think and expressed their thoughts in a legal manner. The drawback is when thoughts are communicated through the media, such as on the television; and millions of people receives one person’s view in a matter of seconds. Not that stating an opinion is erroneous but how society portraits it and handles it is entirely different. Additionally, citizens throughout the United States have “claimed that celebrities, together with media professionals, have replaced both teachers and religious leaders as the most important educators of our time” (Good & Bord...   [tags: Sociology ]

Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion

- Philo indicates in the first premise of his first argument of Part X, that the only way society was able to implement religion and a supreme Deity that would also build longevity, needed some sort of image of association. Philo is classified as a skeptic, he interjects that the idea of there being a God has no proof of existence through the sentiments of man that claim no real testimony of divine intervention of any higher intellect without using some sort of system. There is no order of cohesion that determines what should give sufficient enough reason for religion; but to implement such ideologies’ into existence would require some type of human characteristics (anthropomorphism)....   [tags: philo, demea, cleanthes]

Education in the Bahamas

- As Bill Beattie maintains, “the aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.” It is undeniably true that education is needed for students to mature intellectually and adapt to life. However, the educational process should be liberating rather than oppressing. I believe that The Bahamas should shy away from the "banking concept of education" and incorporate the problem-posing method into the school systems; the educational experience should allow students to be able to think critically rather than regurgitate the ideas of the teachers....   [tags: Liberating Educaction Experience]
