Introduction to Philosophy
BRANCHES OF PHILOSOPHY: Epistemology, Metaphysics, Logic, Ethics
* Epistemology - Studies how human beings acquire knowledge
John Locke: we came into this world naked both physically and intellectually
Empiricism – All knowledge comes from experience which is made possible through sense perceptions
Example: I have an idea of an apple because I see an apple
Immanuel Kant: proposed that categories in the mind exists; contradicts empiricism and believes in innate ideas
Example: ideas pertaining to mathematics e.g. The idea of “1” exist in the mind; all else outside of the mind are merely manifestations of “1” in the mind

Mr. Richard Albin
In philosophy the distinction between truth and knowledge is effectively highlighted in Plato’s allegory of the cave, which illustrates the great limitations faced by philosophers in discovering the ultimate nature of reality. Nevertheless regarding the theory of knowledge, the parable itself is highly symbolic and asserts that any knowledge gained through perceptual awareness is an illusion and are mere reflections of the highest truths. This allegory can be interpreted in many ways; however in the context of platonic epistemology it flawlessly conveys Plato’s “Theory of forms” of an

practices that most institutions are currently using to evaluate social research.
This lecture explores the philosophical underpinnings of the three major educational research paradigms, which include interpretive, scientific, and critical. The chief goal of this lecture is to outline and explore the relationship between each paradigm’s epistemology, ontology, methodology, and methods. This lecture will enhance a learner to understand that it is research that distinguishes social studies from the social sciences. Further, posits that whether publicly acknowledged or not, each social science project is underpinned some ontological, epistemological, and axiological positions

Yes, there is a such thing as a soul. In mortals the soul is what makes us mortals, the body acts as the armor for the soul. The soul cannot survive outside of the body.

Metaphysics is the investigation of what's genuine and it doubts our presence and reason in life. It is thought to be the establishment of logic and without it we would be left with no clarification in respect to how we ought to manage reality. Metaphysics ask the "What is" inquiries of the world. Case in point: "Do you have a spirit?" or "Do

Plato, Ancient Greek Philosopher relation to the New Testament
Christopher Stead, a professor of the University of Cambridge argues in his Book Philosophy in Christian Antiquity, that Christianity was influenced by panoply of Greek philosophy, including Plato (Shandon L. Guthrie par. 2). Plato was an Athenian citizen of high status, a classical philosopher that lived from 429–347 Before Christ Existed. He died at age 81; he believed strongly in logic and reason. Moreover, his works contained discussions in aesthetics, political philosophy, theology, cosmology, epistemology, and the philosophy of language

exaggerating the role of human emotions, desires and preferences. At the same time his moral and ethical theory is to a certain extent controversial and often justly criticised. In fact he is not very persuasive mainly because his argument against moral rationalists seems to confuse questions of moral epistemology with questions of moral motivation. Hume can hardly be right to claim that from the fact that one is not motivated to do the right thing, it follows that one cannot understand what the right thing to do is. Finally his efforts to explain how moral distinctions arise from human passions seem to invoke the very kind of substantive, non-instrumental reasoning which he denies in his works.

As Gergen (1989) solicits, cognitive solutions for human interactions became timeworn and hindered the possibility of social understanding and conceptualization of problems. He pondered therefore; if social constructs cease to exist, there would be a void in defining the relational quality of cognition and the action itself (Gergen, 1989, Sharry, 2004). Applying social epistemology as

In particular, the philosophy adapted for this study dissertation is interpretive epistemology which simply refers to the philosophical underpinning of the research. Interpretive epistemology has a basic assumption that knowledge can only be created and understood from the point of view of the individuals who live and work in a particular culture or organisation. Therefore, every individual acts in situation and makes sense of what is happening based on experiences of the situation and the expectations people bring into it. This means that there may be different understandings and interpretations of reality and interpretive epistemology leads to accessing meanings made by

variety of things. For instance, it can refer to a difference of opinion between two people or groups of people, or it can refer to personality clashes among scientists, in which disagreement may arise from a difference in paradigms or assumptions; a great example of this is the Bohr-Einstein debate video on YouTube.
Disagreement is a fundamental part of epistemology due to the fact that human beings have finite knowledge, and therefore may suffer from a variety of problems in attempting to make general statements. There is also “legitimate” disagreement which means that it is consistent with all of the known facts, and attempting to make other predictions of currently-unknown facts, as

will. Epistemology is a branch of philosophy which focuses on how knowledge relates to truth, faith and beliefs. This branch of philosophy gives birth to empiricism. From an empirical perspective, there are crucial grounds that can be used to abolish Hick’s seemingly intellectual solutions to the problem of evil.
There are four aspects of Christianity that go against Hick’s proposal. These aspects consist of the existence of hell, the central idea of Christianity that life is a sacred gift from God, the rules and regulations of the Christian faith including the Ten Commandments, and the cases where evil, pain or suffering prohibit soul making and growth indefinitely.

College mothers with a mastery orientation as students are also more confident that the homework assistance they provide is beneficial to their child and to themselves (Ricco et al., 2003). In addition, college mothers' espousal of a more sophisticated personal epistemology (beliefs about learning and knowledge) with regard to their own studies is positively related to their adoption of a learning or mastery focus with respect to their child's academic activities (Ricco & Rodriguez, 2006

Chapter IV. Doctrine of Knowledge
Problems of Epistemology
The first philosophical problem confronted by Augustine after his conversion was the problem of knowledge in a twofold perspective.
* Whether we know the truth.
* How we know the truth.
The first response to the first problem is a severe critique of skepticism. His response to the second problem is the doctrine of illumination, which substituted the platonic doctrine of the reminiscence and which the Aristotelian doctrine of abstraction.

According to Blaikie (1993) Ontology is the study of being or the theory of what exists, that what makes up what exists and what does it look like. Kalof, Dan and Diertz (2008) identified two clear categories of the study of what exists – one category or school of thought posits that there is a real world which is not influenced by our observation or interpretation of it. Thus the study of this world pure and follows the laws of science. Positivist are closely aligned to this school of thought.

Diversification is a company strategy where a company’s goal is to increase profitability through increased sales volume from new products and new markets. It allows a company to venture out into new lines of business that are different from present operations. Companies choose to diversify for a host of different reasons. A major reason companies make the decision to diversify is to achieve synergy, making it possible for two or more parts of an organization to achieve greater total effectiveness or profitability than what would have been possible for a single entity.

Eliminating Physical Education
Physical education is required in every American high school. Physical education programs engage students in regular physical activity and help students acquire skills and habits necessary to pursue an active lifestyle. There is evidence showing that Physical education can promote better classroom learning by keeping kids more on task and improving concentration. Physical education not only provides physical activity that can help a child in the short-term, but it can also teach students the behavioral and movement skills that will help them be physically active later in life. There are many reasons why physical education should be required, but perhaps the

The dating industry formed in the 1600s when the first services to help singles found spouses arose. At the time, being unmarried past the age of 21 was shameful causing some to turn towards matrimonial agencies to help them find a mate. The services utilized print ads typically on behalf of men who paid the agency to recruit them a wife. With the invention of the modern newspaper close to 1700 the print ad medium for finding a spouse began to gain popularity. Companies profited from posting a column in exchange for a fee.
