pilot-- about me by nitman118 on November 5th, 2012, 2:31 pm
Well, this is my very first post and to be frank i don’t know how things work around here, I will gradually talk about random stuff and maybe work around and weave my past along with it. So what is happening now? Well, I have my English exam tomorrow and here i am blogging this late at night (which by the way is not a new experience for me since i have pulled off quite a number of all nighters before too),and i am almost sure to mess my paper tomorrow and maybe the next ones too ( which again is not something exclusive for me, since i have never been the shiniest of my lot). To be honest, i had not thought of penning down my thoughts before. But i don’t know why for the past couple of weeks i am being plagued by the emptiness and hollowness inside me, and the only way of easing my anxiety was by writing, apparently it turns out that writing is my salvation. Writing gives me a sort of satisfaction, gives me peace. I am not trying to be too philosophical or something,it is just how i fee...

Quasi-Realism - Cain Samuel Todd by Zin5ki on April 17th, 2011, 2:18 pm
Quasi-Realism, Acquaintance, and the Normative Claims of Aesthetic Judgement.
From The British Journal of Aesthetics, 44:3, 2004, pp.277-296.

Cain Samuel Todd rightly moves away from the strict normativity imposed by Kant, upon which Robert Hopkins grounded his account of quasi-realism's failiure to account for aesthetic autonomy. Because Hopkins' account amounted to little. Todd explores an option of separate origins. He rightly moves away from the strict normativity imposed by Kant, upon which Hopkins grounded his account of quasi-realism's failure to account for aesthetic autonomy. In doing so, Kant's demands that divergent judgements entails a fault amongst disagreeing parties needn't be granted (p.281).

Todd distances his project from that of standard expressivism. According to the theory Todd develops, attitudes simpliciter are not what aesthetic judgements express. Experiences instead...

Remember us by Delta4Exile on December 10th, 2013, 11:21 am
Ever thinking of what can I do that when I'm done and dusted I'll be remembered? Well, I'm a fair writer and thinker so how about coming up with some witty or clever saying people will take and run with? :)

"If 65,000 repetitions makes one truth, why do we still argue whether G-d exists or not when billions have said more than once that He does?"

"If ya don't stir things up once in a while, all the important stuff settles at the bottom and you get hot water instead of soup."

"I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I pretended to be."

"Socrates said, "The unexamined life is not worth living." But I say, "The unchallenged faith is not worth sharing. For just as vigorous exercise causes microscopic tears in muscle, and fractures in bones which then grow back stronger than before, so does having our faith in things challenged, struck, shaken, and scutinized, after which, it reforms stronger precisely because it was attacked.""...
