Re: Thats Philosophy, not Science
Philosophy is not Art. Philosophy is the Science of Wisdom, or the study of wisdom..../love of wisdom. Postmodernists all too often end up misdefining that...or the Ayn Rand fan club wannabes as well.

Re: Thats Philosophy, not Science
Is that a fact? Then its not based off of a point of view, and your claim would be false.

If its not a fact, then your statement is still false.

Also, consider, if all truth is perception, and that is objectively true, all truth is not perception, and that is objectively false.

Re: Thats Philosophy, not Science
No art is not philosophy. I never said it was.......
Nor is science.
We can both agree on that (hopefully)

However questions relating to the human pursuits that we call art and science and the nature of these endevours are philosophical questions REGARDLESS of the conclusions we come to about the nature of these pursuits.

This thread is about the nature of science. The philosophy of science if you like.

No matter how fancilly you word your responses simply stating that science is not philosophy and that there can be no philosophy of science because of this is just daft.

Re: Thats Philosophy, not Science
I see you have been banned for your overly aggressive rants elsewhere anyway.

Oh well.
