Values and Secondary Qualities — John McDowell by Zin5ki on March 24th, 2011, 5:31 pm
Essay 7 of Mind, value, and reality.

Although McDowell brings our attention to a certain disanalogy between secondary and evaluative properties (p.143), he does not take this to prevent his analogy between the former and the latter from granting the ("intersubjective") objectivity of one to the other. Thereby he acts to refute John Mackie's principle attack on the realism of evaluative properties.

One could attempt to capitalise upon the disanalogy McDowell presents in blocking this attack, but such a disanalogy trades upon an intuition whereby the genesis of an evaluative response is merited by the response's intentional object (ibid), which is something an anti-realist is not incapable of denying and thus something she ought not to accept.

Instead, circumnavigating the obstacle he poses might involve the denial of the applicability of his "secondary"...

The quantum mechanics is wrong (1) by zhengshengming on June 2nd, 2009, 2:57 am
The quantum mechanics is wrong (the light is particle, but not wave-particle duality)
zheng sheng ming
In order to show the interference fringe of light is a result of the gravitation, which the moving photons produced. I did experiment 9. (See figure 9) Three light beams A,O, and C, are created.

Figure.9. Picture a is the state of force in the three light beams A, O, and C; picture b shows the section of movement of light beams A, O, and C; picture c is the photograph of light beams A, and C when they are first on the screen; picture d is the photograph when the outer part of light beam A is removed. In picture d, the white line is the original site of light beam A when outside light beam has not been removed; the green line is the site of light beam A when its outside fringe has been removed, and the red arrow is the direction of the light beam A accepting this force; The purple line in picture b is the moving track of light...
