A Game Theory take on the question of God’s Existence.

In an earlier post, I explored What I feel is a more sensible application of Pascal's Wager to God's existence. Now I am attempting one founded in game theory. Goes like this: I like what someone said: I am an apatheist. But my version is: God does not need my belief to exist. This then… Continue reading A Game Theory take on the question of God’s Existence.

The Stoned Ape.

The Rational Animal. "The philosophical process could be described as a human being noticing and then transcending her animal condition of the moment. It is thus the process of coming to the full rationality of the human animal for the time, and describing it. The description is thus the symbolic culmination of irony, at once… Continue reading The Stoned Ape.

In my very early and preliminary reflections on whiteness and being white it seems obvious to me that two issues are present in the philosophical reckoning. 1) The theoretical postmodern maxim of discursive reality.

We will start with the rendition from Princeton's site. I think they have a pretty good rendition there. Without all the strict logical… Continue reading Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.

Divergence and the Failed Route. (More notes “Of Spirit”)

It is not progress that allows failure; it is failure that allows for progress. But not as a cause. Failure is only linked to progress through a particular framing of meaning that is oriented upon progress. This is an emotional investment. The truth in our feelings, the linking of feeling to event to decision of… Continue reading Divergence and the Failed Route. (More notes “Of Spirit”)
