Rights, Wrongs and the Golden Rule ~ Craig Cline

When we were just youngsters, our parents helped most of us learn the difference between right and wrong. We learned that what was “right” was generally in accord with morality, justice, law, propriety, and the common good, for example. On the other hand, our parents taught us that what was “wrong” was generally about immorality, injustice, illegality, impropriety, and the common bad (to coin a new phrase).

 

As we were growing up, our thought processes were maturing, and we…

Counterfactuals ~ Tim Gier

What is a counterfactual and why should you care? Suppose that I say, “If only Thomas Jefferson had championed the cause of the abolition of slavery then slavery in America would have been abolished when the United States was founded.” That’s a counterfactual. It poses a solution to a problem (or a cause for some effect) that runs counter to the facts as we know them. Why should you care? Because, staying with the example, it the counterfactual was true, then supposedly we would know…

Ad Hominem Attacks ~ Tim Gier

Spend any time online and sooner or later you will witness someone accuse someone else of using an Ad Hominem attack. Most of the time, the accuser is mistaken. Consider the following two examples:



 1. “Prof. Guy Frangelini is abrasive, arrogant, egotistical and mean-spirited. Given that, I choose to avoid him and his most loyal followers at all…

The Towering Interminable ~ Roger Yates

It is that time of year again... 

 

North Americans are not going to let us forget "9/11", that's for sure. I have just experienced another day in Europe where "9/11" was a major news item and the subject of TV documentaries. We hear, again, that all the names have been read out in New York and this is supposed to be big news for us. After all, these were white, middle-class, deaths, and these are the ones that count, it is implied.
