Am lucrat anul trecut la o carte de filosofie pentru copii. Cartea cuprinde o serie de dialoguri imaginare cu o cititoare sau un cititor de 10-12 ani. Aici se gasesc doua discutii – una despre familie, alta despre obligatiile copiilor fata de parinti. Ele vin in continuarea unor reflectii din 2013, pe care le-am postat aici.
Also from last year (see previous post).
Some notes written about one year ago. I did revise them, but nothing is publishable.
This is mainly an (yet unsuccessful) attempt to develop what I understood as a Wittgensteinean suggestion here for how we could justify claims of the form ‘I know that p’, where p describes what is happening in the speaker’s environment, by performing certain empirical actions. Since these are my personal notes, some other thoughts are intermixed. If you have any feedback, please leave a comment bellow.
These are some notes which I wrote down in the last few months. I was thinking of writing a book, so I wrote in order to make the topic of my book a bit more clear. This is the only use of this text – to make it clear for myself what I am supposed to write about in my book. The only result of writing everything found here, which I would acknowledge, is that the title of my book should be ‘Reason, Language and Actions’. Nothing else should be taken seriously, nothing is worth mentioning etc. I did not proofread the text for grammar mistakes. If you want to take a look at it, you’re on your own.
“Ce este familia?”
Intrebarea pare sa trimita la dictionar. Ce am putea afla mai mult, ca raspuns la aceasta intrebare, decat ce anume considera vorbitorii limbii romane ca este o familie, sau ce considera vorbitorii altor limbi ca este ceea ce numesc ei o familie?
What is courage? Let’s start with a working definition. A courageous act is one which is performed in spite of a danger (or of something taken as such), but only if it is possible to perform it.
There is nothing which I would claim to be true (or even acceptable) here, so I should not be quoted on any of the following lines. I wrote them down just to reflect on some topics (personal identity, responsibility, obligations, existence of God, theology of atonement, actions, intentions, reasoning, having a concept etc.) in my spare time. I am not posting these thoughts here because they could be of any use to someone else. It is just that I do not see why I should refrain from posting them here for my own use.
