The Assumption Of Perfect Competition

- Mainstream pricing is based on the movements of supply and demand. Political economists view such theory as being inherently flawed given the break in logic: neoclassical pricing theory relies on the assumptions of perfect competition (affects supply curve), full and complete information, and unrealistic assumptions on consumer behaviour (affects demand curve, Kriesler 2015). The assumption of perfect competition is what renders the neoclassical model as inapplicable- it unrealistically assumes that there are an infinite number of buyers and sellers in a fully-informed market of identical products....   [tags: Economics, Supply and demand]

Pale's Paradigm and Lamarck's Paradigm

- According to Tomas Kuhn, “normal science means research firmly based upon one or more past scientific achievements, achievements that some particular scientific community acknowledges for a time as supplying the foundation for its further practice” (Pajares ). The achievements that Kuhn defines as paradigms help the scientific community develop a scientific method to resolve puzzles. Particular puzzles that paradigms fail to solve and eventually lead to paradigm shifts are called anomalies. Since Kuhn first introduces the relations of these three terms to philosophy of science in “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,” scientific communities have improved their understandings of science a...   [tags: Philosophy, Scientific Assumptions]

Assumptions Can Be Deadly in Desiree’s Baby by Kate Chopin

- The death of a child with her mother is a horrendous thing to happen. Why would a mother choose this as the only option for her and her child. Was it out of love or was it out of being so scared that she had no idea what to do anymore. Was it really her only option or were there other things she could have done. Desiree made the choice that set part of the irony in Desiree’s Baby by Kate Chopin. Armand meets Desiree and they instantly fall in love and get married. Armand loves her; it was shown because she was “a woman who is able to suddenly entice Armand’s passion despite her obscure origin and lack of prestigious name.” Desiree gets pregnant and gives birth to a black baby....   [tags: slavery, reputation, race]

Food Assumptions: Everything the Food Industry Does Not Want Consumers to Know

- People often take in information without thinking about what it means or how valid it is. People also tend to consume food and beverages without thinking where it came from or how it was produced. The well-known saying, “do not believe everything you see and hear” is something more people should consider more often when thinking about the production and consumption of food in America. The American public is misinformed on many topics in the food industry.

Criticism of Moral Science

- Any outcome of rationality is only as good as its assumptions. If 'x' is assumed and 'y' is done leading to outcome 'z', then rational arguments and science can reveal whether it happens to be so. We can say 'y' is right (rationally) if it is consistent with 'x' and does lead to 'z'. If not then it is wrong to do 'y'. So the idea of y being wrong or right depends on the assumptions 'x' and the desired outcome 'z'. The problem with moral science is that it determines ‘x’ and ‘z’ arbitrarily and then decides whether y is right or wrong....   [tags: assumptions, experiment, objectivism]

Socratic Questioning Challenges Authority And Assumptions Of The Individual

- Rational Thinking Socratic questioning challenges authority and assumptions of the individuals who claim that they completely understand topics such as justice, truth, and piety. Plato demonstrates in Euthyphro that in order to acquire truth, one must search for a deeper understanding of topics through questioning. When one questions ideas however, one must use rational thinking in order to get clearer explanations. Plato shows his readers that rational thought and standards must be applied when seeking truth when Socrates criticizes Euthyphro’s explanation of justice on the grounds that they fail to abide to the norms of rationality....   [tags: Thought, Logic, Socrates, Euthyphro]
