What Is The Goal Of Philosophical Exploration? (SOLVED!)

In the first two lectures of this short series, I’m having argued that all knowledge begins with experience, the reality of which is primary and undeniable 🙌 But experience needs to be interpreted, and most interpretations see experiences as mediating knowledge of a transcendent reality beyond experience 🤓 The knowledge I proposed isn’t just about a physical reality, but also includes objective values such as beauty, goodness and obligation that are derived from aesthetic and moral experiences 🙌 Philosophy of Idealism suggests that it is best to think of such a reality as not unconscious or valueless but mind-like. This means that it contains appealing and challenging ideals, which are intended to guide and support human creativity.

These knowledges, I suggested are not limited to an objective, physical reality. They also include objective, moral values, such as beauty and goodness. Philosophy of Idealism posits that this reality should not be seen as unconscious and worthless but rather as mind-like as it contains attractive and challenging ideals that guide human creativity, and set goals for human endeavourr(edited by Essence Keene, November 18, 2021).

Amazingly, an interesting study has just been published at ruth-ng.co.uk It is tempting to make it appear scientifically significant at any level. For example, we might choose the molecular level — the boundary of the object is defined by the border of the molecules which compose the outer layers and the ionic bonds binding atoms together. The picture becomes blurrier the closer you zoom in. As we know, a staggering 99.9999999999996% of a hydrogen atom is empty; and an approximated 9.9999999999999999999958% of the universe is empty! The electron shells, which are the orbit levels of electrons surrounding an atomic nucleus, are also almost completely empty. The question is, where do we actually draw the border?

Process philosophy is founded on the idea that existence is dynamic. This is why any complete philosophical explanation of reality and the place we play within it should focus first on this dynamic aspect. While we see our world and self as continually changing, Western metaphysics is obsessed with the idea of reality as an amalgamation of these changes. Static individuals whose dynamic Features can be taken as mere appearances, ontologically secondary or derivative. For process philosophers the adventure of philosophy begins with a set of problems that traditional metaphysics marginalizes or even sidesteps altogether: what is dynamicity or becoming—if it is the way we experience reality, how should we interpret this metaphysically? Are there several varieties of becoming—for instance, the uniform going on of activities versus the coming about of developments? Are all development possible in the same manner? Which types of phenomena can we most effectively classify? What can be done to understand how new conditions are created? Is it possible to imagine ourselves as a dynamic or becoming being independent of time and space? This is a nice tip from Philomena Lacy, who shared it with us.
