Why is philosophy important? It is the primary underpinning of the behavior of individuals and societies, because what you believe determines how you act. You may not have thought much about philosophy, but you still have one. You may be just so used to it that it has become invisible to you.
Dave Bergman developed and published (in 1990) the Spinning Ring model of elementary particles. Charge near the surface of the thin ring rotates at the speed of light. This was the first physical model of particles that agreed with all the experimental data. The model requires fewer assumptions than the quantum model of particles. Unlike the quantum model, the new model is a physical model, and it is free of self- contradictions. The ring model not only accounts for characteristics of the electron but also works for the proton, positron and the antiproton (with different size, mass, etc.).

According to great scientists such as Albert Einstein, time is not as stable as most of us think. As humans we’re adjusted to time and our evolution has established tricks to allow our conscious minds to deal with it but in reality it’s a slippery concept. Time slips occur when a current time (now) interlaces with a previous time (then) and can be experienced by the person from the more recent time. However, the event is usually unnoticed by the people from the earlier time. What is the evidence for this phenomenon? Well, plenty if you know where to look.
Overview: Could Life And Consciousness Be Related To The Fundamental Quantum Nature Of The Universe? Consciousness defines our existence and reality. But how does the brain generate thoughts and feelings? Most explanations portray the brain as a computer, with nerve cells ("neurons") and their synaptic connections acting as simple switches, or "bits" which interact in complex ways.
Followup to: Making Beliefs Pay Rent (in Anticipated Experiences) Carl Sagan once told a parable of a man who comes to us and claims: "There is a dragon in my garage." Fascinating! We reply that we wish to see this dragon—let us set out at once for the garage! "But wait," the claimant says to us, "it is an invisible dragon." Now as Sagan points out, this doesn't make the hypothesis unfalsifiable.
Introduction The Information Philosopher has established that quantum mechanics and thermodynamics play a central role in the creation of all things. This finding has enormous implications for philosophy.
Back to main page The philosophy of history espoused by George Frederick Hegel, philosopher and historian, has often been viewed as largely teleological. It has often been speculated that this philosophical presumption arose from the historical context of Hegel's life, whether negatively through his fear of the French Terror or positively from his dedication to the Romantic thesis that Reason shapes the universe. Nonetheless, Hegel's commitment to the dialectical progression of time and to the triumphant end of history is taken to be a largely deterministic and ahistorical philosophy. Such a reading, I would argue, would be a mistaken.
Analytic philosophy (sometimes analytical philosophy ) is a generic term for a style of philosophy that came to dominate English-speaking countries in the 20th century. In the United Kingdom , United States , Canada , Scandinavia , Australia , and New Zealand , the vast majority of university philosophy departments identify themselves as "analytic" departments. [ 1 ] The term "analytic philosophy" can refer to: A broad philosophical tradition [ 2 ] [ 3 ] characterized by an emphasis on clarity and argument (often achieved via modern formal logic and analysis of language ) and a respect for the natural sciences . [ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] The more specific set of developments of early 20th-century philosophy that were the historical antecedents of the broad sense: e.g., the work of Bertrand Russell , Ludwig Wittgenstein , G. E.
Broad Overview: The German Ideology "The first premise of all human history is, of course, the existence of living human individuals. Thus the first fact to be established is the physical organisation of these individuals and their consequent relation to the rest of nature....Men can be distinguished from animals by consciousness, by religion or anything else you like.
The 1700s saw many great thinkers who have left a lasting impact on modern philosophy and science -- and psychology. But there were two who would, between them, define the nature of science, especially psychology. They are, of course, David Hume and Immanuel Kant. David Hume was born April 26, 1711 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father died the following year and left the estate to his eldest son, John.

Existentialism is a philosophical movement which emphasizes on individual existence, freedom, and choice. There are several philosophical positions all related to existential philosophy but the main identifiable common proposition, is that existence precedes essence. By this, existentialism states that man exists and in that existence man defines himself and the world in his own subjectivity, and wanders between choice, freedom, and existential angst.
