Re: Criticism

On the other hand, when Ashvin makes assertions of a sociopolitical nature such as those against 'blanket policies of any sort, targeted at materialistic desire, but conjured up with little thought and imposed on the population under the guise of "environmental protection"', the same rigo...

Re: Criticism

If you think I’m trying to find anything in abstract representations, you haven’t understood anything I’ve written. I am not saying this is your conscious philosophical method (anymore than it was for Kant). Rather, I am saying you have not thought to look in the place where the Reason-Imagination ...

Re: Criticism

Ok. 2nd try. the Intellect gave us separations such as "E", etc. It was Reason which recognized the unity in "E=mc 2 " as per quote from Steiner: The intellect causes the separation of the individual configurations — because they do indeed confront us in the given as individual ...

Re: Criticism

First, I need to again correct some misunderstandings. 1. If you think I have failed to keep up with the latest developments, please show what has surpassed Rovelli, Penrose, Wigner, Heidegger, and Wittgenstein that would restore Reason as applicable to fundamental truth. You have made this claim s...

Re: Criticism

A major part of the problem with Reason, is it's unclear when it's being applied ingenuously. People on opposite sides of a debate claim to use reason. But feelings tend to come first, and that results in rationalisation. Confirmation bias is something we tend not to recognise in themselves - only ...

Re: Criticism

Right. I almost asked that as well. words words words. Our oh so limiting mode of communication... I think what all this shows is that we need a glossary of Spiritual Science. If it doesn't exist, would somebody write one? I'd appreciate it. What is probably most helpful for you guys is a glossary ...

Re: Criticism

JW, I have written the following multiple times as well, but it has been ignored, so I will write it again. The reason you conclude what you do in your last comment is, ironically, you have stopped observing the development of philosophical and scientific-mathematic systems over human history and re...

Re: Criticism

1. The point of the Goethe quote, and there are many more like it, is that Kant’s noumenal does not exist - an implicit rejection of metaphysics. Goethe sees reason, spirit, etc as embedded in immanent reality. In this instance, there is nothing behind the blue sky, but everything is made apparent ...

Re: Criticism

The way I look at it (which is probably very 'unSteinerian', but might align with Buddhist notions) is that percepts, concepts and thinking all condition each other. If one follows Steiner's instructions then one might experience what he describes of the supersensible. But to 'test' his claims it w...
