From Joshua Knobe, “Thought Experiments: Philosophers – Some philosophers today are doing more than thinking deeply. They are also conducting scientific experiments relating to the nature of free will and of good and evil (Scientific American, November 2, 2011): Here
The classic image of the philosopher pictures an ethereal type who is lost in thought and detached from the pedestrian concerns of everyday realities.
Actually, a lot of us thought he was the person who could rescue us from the fanatic.
A new breed of thinker is now bringing to bear the cognitive sciences to probe why people perceive the world in the particular way that they do.
You mean it has nothing to do with how they were raised?
The tenets of experimental philosophy can elucidate whether free will really exists and whether morality is just a relative construct.
Don’t we already know what the answer was got to be, from these clowns?
Look, there’s a big trial going on in Canada. If you are just a stupid Darwinist, don’t even comment. Even the useless dweeb legacy media coverage can’t quite get around the radical evil that says everything we need to know.
