Plato , one of the first philosophers to discuss ideas in detail even though it is said that whatever Plato spoke was Pythagorean in theory An idea is a name or mental impression. [ 1 ] Ideas are often construed as representational images; i.e., images of some object . In other contexts, ideas are taken to be concepts , although abstract concepts do not necessarily appear as images. [ 2 ] Many philosophers consider ideas to be a fundamental ontological category of being . The capacity to create and understand the meaning of ideas is considered to be an essential and defining feature of human beings . In a popular sense, an idea arises in a reflex, spontaneous manner, even without thinking or serious reflection , for example, when we talk about the idea of a person or a place.
"I've never been lonely. I've been in a room -- I've felt suicidal. I've been depressed. I've felt awful -- awful beyond all -- but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me...or that any number of people could enter that room.
Psy. 307; Review for Psy. 462 1. Generally considered the first relatively modern "existentialist" (if we do not consider existential currents in ancient Greek thought, Zen, etc.) 2. In K's view, truth is found through subjectivity, through our individual, unique apprehension of things.
1. EXISTENCE PRECEDES ESSENCE. "Freedom is existence, and in it existence precedes essence." This means that what we do, how we act in our life, determines our apparent "qualities." It is not that someone tells the truth because she is honest, but rather she defines herself as honest by telling the truth again and again. I am a professor in a way different than the way I am six feet tall, or the way a table is a table.
Il semble qu'au Canada, la plupart des intervenants en sante publique ont une interpretation etroite de cet enonce, qui signifie pour eux << essayer d'obtenir une plus grande proportion du budget de la sante pour les programmes de sante publique >>. [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Apres avoir offert aux survivantes et aux perpetreurs de violence une chance de s'ouvrir et de parler de ce qui s'est passe, l'etape suivante pour MEGEN est de faire passer les deux groupes un processus de guerison en offrant des conseils et un soutien psycho-social et de cette facon essayer de detourner les perpetreurs a ne plus commettre le crime. LXXXXr: "Puis pria la princesse en recompense des services de la patiente, de vouloir prendre le luth pour la resjouir, pour essayer a trouver quelque armonie qui peust guerir ses maladies, comme fut celle de Saul par David l'Hebrieu, et en une contree, ceux qui sont piquez des serpens nommez Tarantes.
Conventional wisdom would have one believe that it is insane to resist this, the mightiest of empires, but what history really shows is that today's empire is tomorrow's ashes; that nothing lasts forever, and that to not resist is to aquiesce in your own oppression. The greatest form of sanity that anyone can exercise is to resist that force that is trying to repress, oppress, and fight down the human spirit.

My partner is taking a class in psychology and one assignment asks her to write a paper answering the question “What makes life worth living?”
. —Plato Whereas Aristotle is not nearly as interested in erotic love (erôs) as he is in friendship (philia), for Plato the best kind of friendship is that which lovers can have for each other.
We are entering an age when technological advancements will allow other intelligent and sentient beings, besides people, to come into existence; however most governments are not yet prepared to deal with this eventuality. For instance, if a company somehow manages to develop an artificially intelligent computer , would this new being be a property of the company and be forced to work as a slave? Obviously, all the computer’s hardware and software would have been purchased or constructed from the company’s resources, and therefore be owned by the company. Yet how can a company own a sentient being? Another example is what if a biotech company creates and patents a new form of life that is intelligent and sentient? How can a company, or even people, own an intelligent life form and its entire species, thus completely controlling their fate and rights?
I find it a little difficult to say what the subject matter of this seminar is going to be, because it's too fundamental to give it a title. I'm going to talk about what there is. Now, the first thing, though, that we have to do is to get our perspectives with some background about the basic ideas which, as Westerners living today in the United States, influence our everyday common sense, our fundamental notions about what life is about. And there are historical origins for this, which influence us more strongly than most people realize.
by Eliezer Yudkowsky The first virtue is curiosity. A burning itch to know is higher than a solemn vow to pursue truth. To feel the burning itch of curiosity requires both that you be ignorant, and that you desire to relinquish your ignorance.
