Philosophy MEADOW FOOR

JANUARY 19TH

I'm excited to blow people's minds and learn how to better my arguments with logic and my thoughts. I'm worried I'm just going to make a big fool of myself, because I tend to do that from time to time.

"The unexamined life is not worth living"

If you don't think about and focus on stuff in life then there's no purpose to living the life.

Ten Commandments Of Philosophy

1. Allow yourself to think freely without restraints. It means to me that I can think about what I want about anything no matter how deep the thoughts may be.

2. Don't believe every thought that you're told or is given to you until you see the evidence.

3. The truth is our friend.

4. Look at each individual theory and examine each one

5. Collect evidence to support your argument.

6. Look at the flaws in your case to perfect it and make it flawless.

7. Look back over your theories and make them better

8. Make it simple for the majority to understand.

9. Speak only the truth and nothing but the truth

10. Live by your morals, the morals are what make a person who they are.

Who would you have followed? Confusions? Buddha? Laozi?

I would've followed Buddha because I do that anyway, but I like the beliefs and the philosophy of it and how it focuses on living a good life by achieving your goals.

What Socrates meant by wisdom is that it's knowledge, and what made him wise was that he knew he didn't know something and he was well aware that some things were unknown to him. I can apply this to my own life because I am still young and there are things that I don't know about still, so I go to people who do know what they are talking about and are confident about there statements.

UNIT 2

February 6th

A belief that I believe in is the Buddhism philosophy because I do believe that there is a way to end all of our suffering and we can't suffer forever but everyone does and everyone can stop it if they just find their true self and live to their potentials.

February 9th

I found myself to be more of a empiricist because I believe that experience is the reason why we have knowledge

February 10th

My dad's family believes in a god and raised me to be the same. My mom on the other hand didn't believe in that so as I got older I started to actually listen to her reasoning and as I learn more about science I abandoned that belief.

February 13th

I think Descartes thinks too much into things but I sort of agree with him because You have to be able to think so you know what/you are. However I think he went too far into it and asked all these things to get to one simple statement.

February 14th

Why do you think we fall in love?

We're sick of being alone and we spend all of our life trying to find the one that we want to be with all the time. Sometimes it's pointless.

"Custom is the great guide to human life"

Basically this means that our customs guide us through things in our life and helps us through certain situations.

February 27th

I feel like it was both a waste and not a waste to study Hume because even though he made things a little bit more complicated than it should've been we get to see different prospectives.

February 28th

Knowledge it comes from past experiences that will help your better judgment in the future. Not only that but it's based on the reasoning behind all of it. The more experiences and reasoning you have the more knowledge you gain.

Unit 3

March 6th

I would rate my argument Skills at a 7.5/10 because I still really need to perfect it.

March 7th

It's important to learn about deductive reasoning because it helps you better your arguments and make them more valid. It'll probably help me in the future because there's always arguments going on around the world. It was slightly difficult at first but after a while it became easier to understand

March 9th

I don't think I've ever used formal logic in my life.

March 10th

I definitely use false dilemma not in an actual argument I've way, just when I'm trying to make arguements difficult for my family because it's funny to see them get upset over it
