Sometimes the drive to school can be relaxing. Sometimes, it goes more like this.
This mornings car conversation.
🦑 oh, they have a whole series of these books. There’s an Introduction to Empiricism!
🤦🏾♀️ so what’s your understanding of empiricism?
🦑 only what I got from “Sophie’s World”, about trusting the evidence of your senses.
🤦🏾♀️ so would you say that empiricism is anthetical to relativism?
🦑 what is relativism?
🤦🏾♀️ remember yesterday on “The Philosophers Zone” they were talking about the dangers of philosophy in school, walking a tightrope between relativism and indoctrination? That indoctrination teaches that there is only a single truth, and relativism that a single truth is impossible.”
🦑 well, I suppose it is then
🤦🏾♀️ so would you include “thought” as a sensory experience for the purposes of that argument?
🦑 for the sake of the thought experiment, I think it’s easier to think of thought and sensory experience as different categories. It just makes it easier to think about.
So, how was your commute? 😂
