Philosophy Course - Day Three

MelbournePhilosopher

Day Three - things are hotting up.

Lecture One :
More Darwin. (groan)

Lecture Two :
* The principle of conflict - if something logically inconsistent seems to be true of an object, then it must be made up of further parts. Example : a man is standing still, but moving his head.

* Platonic forms as a kind of logical consistency - justice in a man and justice in a city are both shadows of the same concept of justice. Variation in instance is not enough to bring the two kinds of justice in conflict, which would demand a description by parts.
