M Ward - Epistemology From the album "Hold Time" (2009) I was raised in a Catholic school, learned who to fire with and pray to I learned how to hold on from a book of old psalms And if you're trying to sing an old song and you're getting all the words wrong Well, you're just a-following along too closely in the book I learned how to keep my head from something Paul said About keeping the fruit in the spirit from the chorus down to the hook And sometimes I wonder what in God's name did I do to deserve you Oh, to deserve you Cause I just rolled and I tumbled, down a long road, I stumbled While shooting in the dark as to what's best And finally, I found you Without ever learning how to I put the right foot in front of the leg And beyond that is anybody's guess I learned how to keep my head from something Paul said About keeping the fruit in the spirit from the chorus down to the hook Oh, and sometimes I wonder what in God's name did I do to deserve you Oh, to deserve you Cause I just rolled and I tumbled, down a long road, I stumbled While shooting in the dark as to what's best And finally, I found you without ever learning how to I put the right foot in front of the leg Cause I just rolled and I tumbled, down a long road, I stumbled While shooting in the dark as to what's best Oh, as to what's best, as to what's best And finally, I found you Without ever learning how to I put the right foot in front of the leg And beyond that is anybody's guess
Zagzebski on Plantinga: Reformed Epistemology. "Religious Knowledge and The Virtues". Id like to make clear, although I say so explicitly twice in the video that I am relying heavily on Zagzebski's article cited and stared below. I quote from pages 2, 4, 6-7, 19 and relied on Zagzebski's flow of argument and just overall genius. If I did not make this clear in the video, I solemnly declare it here. Linda Zagzebski holds the Kingfisher College Chair of Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at the University of Oklahoma and has written many books and articles worth your read. Discussions on Reformed Epistemology as a general response to Veritas48's discussions and so forth. The beginning objections, for this video, numbered below. Part 1 of More than 1. Well See. Reformed Epistemology, whether per Plantinga, Wolterstorff or Mavrodes seems to entail: 1.Though the motive is to avoid skepticism, Plantingas presentation is externalist. As long as nature has insured that we respond to stimuli from the external world in a way that reliably leads to truth, our beliefs in this system are warranted. This immediately produces knowledge, ..if we know they are true. 2.Drastic individualism leaves us without cogent criterion for differentiating beliefs. Belief based theories opposed to person/virtue based. This is not necessarily specifically directed at reformers so much as it is individualistic theories in general—it just so happens Plantingas fits this bill. 3.Non-Voluntarism leads to insufficient accounts of Will, motive, discernment ...

JP Moreland : Skepticism and Epistemology 6 of 8 Apologetics Christian Philosopher JP Moreland talks about skepticism and Epistemology
Epistemology maybe some more propositions here... I kinda leaped from science becoming more pragmatic to science being somehow equivalent to technology... I should have fleshed that out a bit more. I think science has a religious side (to know the mind of God) and an irreligious side (to control nature). That science is an offshoot of religion I think all historians of science would agree with. It is not theology, but the founders of the scientific method did not leave God out of their justifications for the method. God played a central role. But back to technology... the desire to control nature motivates much modern day science. I think this is an unfortunate result of the philosophical assumptions underlying the scientific method. The basic problem is the assumption that the knower is separate from the known, that an actual gap exists between observer and observed. It is not so neatly compartmentalized as that: thou art that. Knowing is an activity that brings forth a world, it is not a passive mirroring of an already existing reality.

A new epistemological tool more powerful than falsifiability and Occam's razor This video uses a highly edited audio file taken from this TED Talks source: David Deutsch: A new way to explain explanation I claim fair use. I want to talk about Deutsch's ideas. I think his concept of "invariability" might turn out to be an epistemological tool more powerful than Occam's razor and Karl Popper's concept of falsifiability combined. Occam's razor states that "entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity" or "plurality should not be posited without necessity," and that the simplest explanation tends to be the best one. That means that when competing hypotheses are equal in all other respects, you should choose the explanation that makes as few assumptions as possible, and eliminate those that make no difference in the observable predictions of the explanatory hypothesis or theory. They used to call it the law of parsimony, or law of economy or or law of succinctness. Karl Popper next argued that the reason for us to prefer simple theories wasn't about appealing to practical or aesthetic considerations, as Occam himself seemed to have assumed. Popper justified simplicity by connecting it to his falsifiability criterion because simple theories had more empirical content and were more testable. And in the end, Occam's razor is just a heuristic, a rule of thumb, and not really a law or an irrefutable principle of logic while falsifiability is a must for any scientific theory. And just as Occam's razor is a side effect of the truth of ...

Epistemology versus Fantasy Barbara Forrest, a professor of philosophy at Southeastern Louisiana University was interviewed about "intelligent design" creationism. She has been a critic of intelligent design and the Discovery Institute, and testified as a key expert witness for the plaintiffs in the 2005 Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District trial.. Forrest "co-authored Creationism's Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design (Oxford University Press, 2004), with biologist Paul R. Gross. The book examines the goals and strategies of the intelligent design movement and its attempts to undermine the teaching of evolutionary biology. The authors ***yze the absence of a scientific intelligent design hypothesis, ID's religious foundations, and the political ambitions of intelligent design proponents. They examine the movement's Wedge strategy which has advanced and is succeeding through public relations rather than through scientific research. They also highlight intelligent design creationism's relationship to public education and to the separation of church and state. Forrest serves on the board of directors of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), the Board of Trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the New Orleans Secular Humanist Association (NOSHA)." plato.stanford.edu plato.stanford.edu

JP Moreland : Skepticism and Epistemology 4 of 8 Apologetics Christian Philosopher JP Moreland talks about skepticism and Epistemology
***ytic Epistemology This clip discusses some of the schools of thought in contemporary ***ytic epistemology. First, the clip mentions Bertrand Russells dislike for the standard notion of what constitutes "knowledge" in philosophy, believing it to be to much too vague. Then there is a brief summary of GE Moore's "Proof of an External World" and his views on foundationalism. The clip then mentions Ludwig Wittgenstein's idea that "meaning is use" within social contexts, and that philosophical obstacles are really just miscommunication within "language games." Simply put, Wittgenstein thought that there were no such things as genuine philosophical problems, and that philosophy was merely a byproduct of linguistic misunderstandings. The clip then discusses the differences between foundationalism and coherentism and WVO Quine's notion of the seamless "web of belief." Quine was a strong proponent of the natural sciences, and thought that findings in the natural sciences could shed significant light onto age-old philosophical questions concerning the nature of the mind and knowledge. The clip then summarizes "The Gettier Problem" which challenged the Platonic definition of knowledge as "justified true belief," and then ends with definitions of internalism/externalism, and Alvin Goldman's causal theory of knowledge.
