Inconsistent Triad and MindBody Dualism (Philosophy)

One of the best answers to this triad that Mind-Body Dualists can draw forth is epiphenomenalism, which argues that the mind and body are indeed separate, but cannot interact. Although this argument does not one hundred percent clear up all concerns, it does more or less satisfy the argument—the brain is then a physical object which controls the physical body, and the mind exists nonphysically but does not interact.There have been many ways of thinking about the interactions between the mind and the body throughout human history. Two of these are Dualism and Materialism. Dualism is the belief that the body is material (physical) the mind is immaterial (nonphysical) (text 59). In other words, our body is ruled by the laws of physics, or whatever law people thought existed at the time, and our mind is not ruled by that law. Instead, it stands above the law or apart from it in a spiritual or mental realm. On the other side of the coin is Materialism, a philosophy which holdes that both minds and bodies are physical things (text 59). According to a Materialist understanding of things, our minds are actually only caused by electrochemical processes in the brain which make it seem as though we are conscious.One of the strongest challenges to the ancient Dualistic belief is our Modern understanding of science and the physical world. Both these things underwent a dramatic change in the seventeenth century (text 60), leaving us with a much better idea of how things exist and what our place in the world is. We also now obviously have a much clearer science in regards to how the human brain processes and creates information. Drawing on our understanding especially of physical laws, chapter 5 of the text presents a strong challenge to Mind-body Dualist beliefs of a separate-but-equal non-physical mind.This challenge is an inconsistent triad, a sort of philosophical logic puzzle An

MAKING THE GRADE
Many students wheedle for a degree as if it were a freebie T shirt
BY KURT WIESENFELD

IT WAS A ROOKIE ERROR. AFTER 10 YEARS I SHOULD HAVE known better, but I went to
my office the day after final grades were posted. There was a tentative knock on the door. quot;Professor
Wiesenfeld? I took your Physics 2121 class? I flunked it? I was wondering if there’s anything I can do to
improve my grade?quot; I thought, quot;Why are you asking me? Isn’t it too late to worry about it? Do you dislike

CHUNK #1
making declarative statements?quot;

After the student gave his tale of woe and left, the phone rang. quot;I got a D in your class. Is there any
way you can change it to ‘Incompletequot;?quot; Then the e-mail assault began: quot;I’m shy about coming in to talk to
you, but I’m not shy about asking for a better grade. Anyway, it’s worth a try.quot; The next day I had three
phone messages from students asking me to call them. I didn’t.
Time was, when you received a grade, that was it. You might groan and moan, but you accepted it as
the outcome of your efforts or lack thereof (and, yes, sometimes a tough grader). In the last few years,
however, some students have developed a disgruntled-consumer approach. If they don’t like their grade,
they go to the quot;returnquot; counter to trade it in for something better.

What alarms me is their indifference towards grades as an indication of personal effort and
performance. Many, when pressed about why they think they deserve a better grade, admit they don’t
deserve one, but would like one anyway. Having been raised on gold stars for effort and smiley faces for
self-esteem, they’ve learned that they can get by without hard work and real talent if they can talk the

professor into giving them a break. This attitude is beyond cynicism. There’s a weird innocence to the
TEXT
assumption that one expects (even deserves) a better grade simply by begging for it. With that outlook, I
guess I shouldn’t be as flabbergasted as I was that 12 students asked me to change their grades after final
grades were posted.

That’s 10 percent of my class who let three months of midterms, quizzes, and lab reports slide until
long past remedy. My graduate student calls it hyperrational thinking: if effort and intelligence don’t
matter, why should deadlines? What matters is getting a better grade through an undeserved bonus, the
academic equivalent of a freebie T shirt or toaster giveaway. Rewards are disconnected from the quality
of one’s work. An act and its consequences are unrelated, random events.
5
Their arguments for wheedling better grades often ignore academic performance. Perhaps they feel
it’s not relevant. quot;If my grade isn’t raised to a D I’ll lose my scholarship.quot; quot;If you don’t give me a C, I’ll
flunk out.quot; One sincerely overwrought student pleaded, quot;If I don’t pass, my life is over.quot; This is tough
stuff to deal with. Apparently, I’m responsible for someone’s losing a scholarship, flunking out or
deciding whether life has meaning. Perhaps these students see me as a commodities broker with
something they want – a grade. Though intrinsically worthless, grades, if properly manipulated, can be
traded for what has value: a degree, which means a job, which means money. The one thing college
actually offers – a chance to learn – is considered irrelevant, even less than worthless, because of the longEnglish

Parallel Universes Of The Sane And Insane

The continual internal struggle of Kaysen that propelled this novel to become one of the memorable films in 1993. People had to verify that their internal struggles are normal, that the stages of thought and deliberation are simply necessary. They had to know when and in what circumstances will it be considered as crossing the borders into the parallel universe of the insane. The genuine rationale for the success of the book and the film according to a review, published in the World Socialist Web Site is because:
Kaysen believes that people are curious about the circumstances of her hospital stay primarily to discover whether they might find themselves in the same situation. It’s easy, she says to find oneself in a parallel universe of mental illness…Most people suffering from mental illness do not enter the parallel universe immediately, Kaysen says. Instead, they catch brief glimpses of this other world where everything is different, including time, the laws of physics, and even the way everyday things appear to the eye. Eventually, the temptation to cross over is irresistible, and the alternate reality replaces the familiar. Once in the parallel universe, one is perfectly aware of the world left behind.
All throughout the novel, Kaysen makes mention of the parallel universe especially when she is deep in thought. Although again not as obvious but subtle hints as she analyzes her reactions to things around her trying to determine and rationalize to which universe they belong- the sane or insane.
The best example of all and one which will give meaning to the title occurs in the last few pages of the novel.

Does God Exist

Arguments Scientists have an assertion that the universe was developed through a massive explosion of energy accompanied with light, and this process was termed as the Big Bang (Adamson, 2013). In fact, they contend this incidence led to the beginning of everything that exists. This refers to the beginning of the universe, space and the beginning of time. Nevertheless, this theory does not explain the beginning of the living creatures in the Universe, given that this cannot be associated with the motion, which was caused by this cosmic explosion. Therefore, the universe did not just flash into being, and there is no chance of explaining all this things through the cosmic explosion. In this case, the best explanation that can give a credible explanation is the creation theory, which is described in the Bible. In fact, this offered a relevant explanation regarding existence of God, whereby he is regarded as the creator of all living things. Another proof that God exist relate to the argument derived from design, which is referred to as the teleological argument (Adamson, 2013). In fact, this argument is based on the ideas of design that seeks to justify existence of God on the order of the universe. Moreover, if there were no God, the universe would not have been different in the way it is now. Instead, it could have had various laws of physics that would lead to different arrangement of planets and stars. Therefore, the creation of the universe could have been more powerful or weaker compared to the narration of the Big Bang. In addition, existence of God offers a vast majority of the possible universes, which offer existence of life, thereby making people fortunate in their lives. In this case, the perception towards the world has no way of giving an explanation to the good fortunes. thus, the atheists are expected to put the notion down to chance. Another proof indicates that there is a moral argument that can be derived in justification of existence of God. In fact, this moral argument focuses on proving the existence of God based on the moral laws, which are in form of commands. In fact, these moral commands are able to direct people to do the things they are expected to accomplish. Nevertheless, there are no commands without a commander, who is charged with the responsibility of commanding people to live morally. Therefore, this can be based on the idea of authoritative nature of morality, whereby commands are authoritative. In this case, authority goes beyond human authority, thereby giving rise for a need of a commander, who has authority that transcends human authority.
