Re: What does the moral code of idealism look like?

Metaphysics should not concern itself with ethics, that is an exercise in itself. It goes stepwise something like this : Metaphysics => Epistemology (=> Objectivity) => Ethics - Metaphysics deals with what is always the case, can be the case and that which you do not have access to - Epistemology de...

Re: Metaphysics - Idealism without woo-woo

That is what I call rationality

Re: Metaphysics - Idealism without woo-woo

[/quote] Everyone has faith in some beliefs about themselves and the world, otherwise they could not continue to find any meaning in their lives.

I don't have faith in anything. It is a self-inflicted mysticism to create pseudo meaning.

Re: Metaphysics - Idealism without woo-woo

Faith is baloney. Check my axioms at the end of my presentation :-) I differentiate faith from belief and use that descriptor only when it is experience-based. Are you saying that my experience is baloney? And I'm still curious as to whether the poem aligns your metaphysics? BTW, please understand ...

Re: Metaphysics - Idealism without woo-woo

Re: Metaphysics - Idealism without woo-woo

Please forgive my view from the edge and ignorance of the technicalities but I'm genuinely curious about why one might want "Idealism without woo-woo"? Is it like wanting Science without Religion or wanting Everything without Something? Please help me understand. With "woo-woo" ...
