David Wiggins - A Sensible Subjectivism? by Zin5ki on April 24th, 2011, 10:18 am
From Foundations of ethics: an anthology. Ed. Russ Shafer-Landau and Terence Cuneo. Oxford: Blackwell Publishing, 2007. 145-156.

I shall firstly outline the merits of Wiggins' contributions. In recognition of the failure of subjectivism to provide an analysis of what it means to say 'x is good', owing to the fact that citing such things as sentiments of approbation does not answer this question without introducing circularity through implicitly identifying such sentiments by their association to the thought that x is good, an enlightening clarification is provided. His account of the goal of subjectivism with regards to value is, or at least traditionally has been not to provide a definition of what 'good' is, but instead to provide a commentary of what, when holding x to be good, we are actually doing.
Chiefly they (subjectivists) have wanted to persuade us that, when we...

Letter 3 by The Joshua Letters on January 19th, 2012, 9:52 am
I’ve said before, that despite the fact that for the first time in history all of the information necessary to answer life’s great questions is available, I can’t find anyone that has put it all together and published it. I don’t know exactly why this is, but I speculate that it is not because the answers are overly complex but rather because they are all together unbelievable. This brings me to the last topic on truth itself that I will discuss prior to proceeding - belief. If you go through the trouble to discover and comprehend the truth, yet then for one reason or another chose not to believe it, what good is it? However, this is exactly what I find amongst the groups that have attempted to tackle these questions, and it is true for both sides of the isle. Both Religion and Science appear to be so caught up in age-old arguments (which began long before there was enough information to intelligently have the arguments in the first place) that they can’t or won’t see the truth when it fin...

requests for digital pomme de boom... by Char0n on June 6th, 2014, 11:36 pm
a little bird told me... once, all of the things to do and not to do... and i heard that other little things like crickets do that too... i mean i know that the spiders are all evil... and the light... there is something about the light... it draws you in or something... we are all teathered to the locker as it groans into the abyss... slashing and stabbing at the ropes with the blades we keep between our teeth for one thing or another...
word up... i mean i know i have heard about the three foot chopsticks and the purgator of wait for the punchline of that one time you waited forever... its only that we have an imparitive to keep on keepin on... and if all of those little things are meaningful, and all of the meaning is meaningful to an extent of geometric synchronicity... ... ... ...
and henceforth at some point of proximity to the mind... the extent of the reprocussion of your mind blowing and the inward flow of things that spark your powder keg a noggin... there is a fusion... and...

Good=Bad=Good by chame-lion on August 25th, 2012, 1:15 pm
When words like good, beautiful, light, positive, nice and all the likes are associated with objects, ideas, lifestyle etc, we generally become receptive and eager to open our arms. However, when we hear the opposites like bad, dark, negative etc, we ignore, shut the door or observe with caution from a distance.
The big questions however; What is good? What is bad? What is positive? What is negative? How were these words defined? What if we switched things around for a day? Could your world be better if your good was bad and your bad good? I think there is no such thing as good or bad. People fear what they don’t understand, tag it ‘Bad’ and embrace the easy or endorsed path as ‘Good’.
The desire to understand in the midst of complications, build a perception on what works for you and strike a balance where necessary is what sets you apart. Echoes of nature;life in the Jungle; Understanding;Perception;Balance!!
