    we are thinking of heading into the city saturday morning to meet up with podly

    maybe we could do that and then you and i (and or whoever else) could do some museums

    they're open on saturdays right

    Fuck Locke in his ass.

    Actually, if you want a really good time, pick up New Essays on Human Understanding. It is Leibniz writing a critique on Locke.

    If you want a really fantastic example of the Rationalist / Empiricist debate just grab that book.

    my question is therefore: if the nature of reality as we perceive or experience it leads you to conclude that there is a realm of forms, how then does the nature of the realm of forms not lead you to conclude that there must be an even more fundamental level of reality, and indeed, an infinite regress of such realities?

    Pretty sure Aristotle argues something like this against Plato / Socrates. Except my brain hurts so I can't remember where.

    I think universals / forms are utilized to explain similarity. So there is only an infinite regress insofar as similarity need be explained. So once we go from red to redness, the only other step we would have to do is for there to be a Form of Forms, the form shared by all forms. or a universal of universals, the quality "universal" which is shared by all universals.

    After that there's nothing which requires an infinite regress.

    If we're going with an ontology or metaphysics of forms, not just the "explain similarity" bit, then we can get into self-evidence as a stopping point. Once we get to a self-evident truth, that can maintain itself and there is nothing "behind" it which would suggest an infinite regress.

    i am curious as to the quality of a truth which is self-evident such that it can maintain itself without resorting to "it just is."

    or "it just [strike]is[/strike]" in some cases.

    i am also curious as to the nature of the process of instantiation, and how it occurs; how does the immaterial interact with the material (which is the central problem of dualism, as I recall it)?

    Manhattans are pretty high on the deliciousness scale. But I'll have an Old Fashioned. Or Sazeracs if I don't have to do the driving.

    I prefer the manhattan. I am not really wild about sugar in whiskey, which is basically what distinguishes sazeracs and old fashioneds from manhattans.

    I guess i prefer the way the vermouth stands up to the whiskey.

    Also I've yet to have a sazerac where the pastis didn't color the flavor of the drink to the point where the quality of the whiskey was irrelevant.

    Mill is one of my favourite dudes

    i find that whole era is really profitable to read from, very applicable to daily life and discussion but also immediately understandable once you get used to the anachronistic style.

    it's a whole other animal compared to contemporary metaphysics and cultural criticism.
