How to Free Your Mind
List of Fallacies
Trivium 5-Page Summary
i. Infinite amount of information on the internet, how do you know is substantial and reflective of what exists, vs that which is not substantial, and thus illusory and do not exist?
ii. Favorite news site… how does the host or site-owner know how to discern reality from illusion?
iii. What method do you use to validate the contents of your mind?
i. Vs. appeal to authority
Solipsism ( /ˈsɒlɨpsɪzəm/) is the philosophical idea that only one’s own mind, alone, is sure to exist. The term comes from Latin solus (alone) and ipse (self). Solipsism as an epistemological position holds that knowledge of anything outside one’s own mind is unsure. The external world and other minds cannot be known, and might not exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the world and other minds do not exist. Although the number of individuals sincerely espousing solipsism has been small, it is not uncommon for one philosopher to accuse another’s arguments of entailing solipsism as an unwanted consequence, in a kind of reductio ad absurdum. In the history of philosophy, solipsism has also served as a skeptical hypothesis.
iv. Milner and Zimbardo
v. Moral relativism / there is no objective truth / negation of cause and effect
vi. Eugenics / violation of the volition of others / playing God
i. Yet, irrational thinkers have traditionally cast humanity as irrational and therefore they justify controlling and manipulating others.
