I think this is the most appropriate place to post this, since I want to talk about political science as a discipline and not watch people fling shit at each other over their political disagreements. Has anyone majored in it/taken courses in it/studied it? What exactly is involved? What sort of temperament is necessary to excel at it and enjoy majoring in it? Politics is definitely a passion of mine and I like to think I'm somewhat intelligent and well-informed and good at learning/processing information, but I'm curious what you all have to say about it.

OP, I love politics, and I think a poly-sci major would go well for you if you choose a university prized for poly-sci work, but mind you, a lot of poly-sci has been overrun by the liberals so be careful where you apply. But if you really wanna know a lot about politics, start reading tons of different news sources. You wanna know about international politics? Read news papers from all over the world, see what they have to say. I do it a lot and it leads me to tons of new information that is never spoken of in the USA.

What kind of jobs can you even get with a poly-sci degree? First learning a solid foundation from school might be a good idea, maybe a few community college courses will suffice. For self-learning I'm not sure where a good beginning point would be, I jumped in by buying a cheap copy of The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism by Max Weber from some thriftstore and was completely lost. Referencing a world history book helped but the most difficulty were the terms used and their meaning. It would be cool to have a mentor or something to consult for difficult parts, i.e. a teacher, but I can't afford that shit.

I think current events are seperate from political philosophy. Definitely a good idea to have many different sources, some are Deutsche Welle, New York Times, Drudge Report (yeah yeah), Democracy Now, Al Jazeera, France 24, The Intercept, The Final Straw...

I'd also recommend checking out Academia for access to many essays on a myriad of topics.

It'd be cool to delve into a specific book, preferably a classic, and dissect it on here, line by line, with the understanding we're probably wrong, hah.

>Fuck Apathy
well, wow, what a strawman to start on. SR is not, as far as i know, apathetic to climate change, he is however on the question 'does God exist?'. He coined the term apatheism, mirroring 'atheism', to say it doesn't matter one way or the other. He goes on to say that whether there is a god or not matters to no one, a militant apatheist position. watch these vids for that topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khPM9D76vHA

> boring
well i'm sorry, would an action thriller be more interesting to you? I wasn't thinking that someone would get a thrill out of a video of a man talking into a webcam but i found this video interesting because SR destroys a hack like Molyneux and mainly by employing knowledge and skill of philosophy. That is what you get an education in philosophy for and what distinguishes professionals from hacks.
But maybe, TX Dog you are more likely to agree with Molyneux as you both seem to think philosophy is boring, and maybe you simply cannot appreciate education.

The fools thread got hate because it was nonsense, there was nothing of value there, even when the incomprehensible writing was deciphered, and it took up alot of space. However, if you want here is a vid by SR on the determinism and freewill, topics which the Fool was (/claimed to be) talking about, and explained much clearer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sWHd3b8Y68. There is also a longer lecture.

and no, we cant call spielberg and kanye philosophers unless the word philosopher itself is completely void and without meaning

I came across this guy a few days ago myself, funnily enough when I was digging up dirt on Molyneux. He's intelligent and well-spoken. I haven't had a chance to check out the rest of his channel yet, but this thread made me take another look and I found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8V8rtdXnLA

Really fascinating lecture about the pessimistic induction, and how wrong just about everything people have ever believed is, and how wrong we probably are about a lot of things.

I'm really not that interested in the whole dead horse theism debate but there's a lot of good stuff on his channel that warrants a closer look. It also seems like he doesn't take himself deathly seriously which is nice. Too bad he hasn't uploaded anything in almost a year.

A man doffs his hat to you, and with a bow he says, "How do you do? I'm a person. I'm alive, I'm sensible, I talk, I have feelings."

"But," you wonder, "Do you really? Or are you just an automaton?" You've got to admit: the man seems more like a machine than he is a living organism.

"Am I real, or am I just an automaton?" you wonder.

We're living beings, we're very sensitive, and inside the human skin, by an extraordinary fluke of nature there has arisen something called "reason," and there have also arisen values such as love. This was a fluke, however. In other words, you won't find anything really intelligent outside human skins, and if that is so, then the only thing people can do to maintain reason and love in this universe is to fight nature. To beat the external world into submission of the human will.

Each person feels themselves as a globule of consciousness or mind, living inside a vehicle called "my body". Since the world outside that body is stupid, we feel estranged from the world. We consider the basic image of ourselves as a soul, or an ego, or a mind, all by itself in its little house looking out at a world that is strange and is not "me". When we find out how enormous the universe really is, and that we live on a little planet in a solar system on the edge of a galaxy, which is a minor galaxy, it makes us feel extremely unimportant, and rather lonely.

We would like to believe that it's more than that. If we could only still believe that that there is an intelligent and eternal god, in whose eyes we are important, and who has the power to enable us to live forever. That would be very nice, but it's an extraordinarily difficult thing to believe.

Interesting Post, OP. But we CAN maintain reason AND coexist with nature, by coalescing our technology with it. fuck all that deterministic shit, its a straight cop out, if you believe it, it will come, we are in control of this planet thisplanet.tv

All those, "not me's" help us to grow, no? Dont feel lonely.....Remember, there have been 5 ice ages,this is the earth 6.0, and each one restores the earth. We survived the last one, cause we were furry monkeys, we might survive the next one if we can decrease the severity of it. And all that new oil that gets created will power the next race of humans in the earth 7.0, maybe THEY will find a way to supercharge it and finally invent space travel....or maybe theyll be a buncha dopes too....who knows?

Well, I dont know if theres a God, but i like to believe there is...that why the concept exists, maybe, a way to keep ourselves in check.... But evolution is real, and you can say a christian told you....I used to be an atheist, and thought the whole bible was a lie, but as a read it, im starting to separate fact from fiction, where the fables of the elders begin and the true events are documented.

Proving qualia exists elsewhgere besides yourself is easy: Just think of someone who you can't agree with at all, in any regard. They cannot be a projection of a "solipsistic self" since you would see yourself in your own "imagined, constructed" persons, since you are the Solipsist, so they have to have their own qualia.

Philosophical Zombies aren't a difficult hurdle, they make more philosophers zombie-like in their ideas but, I have an easy way to prove that philosophical zombies don't exist and solipsism is a bunk thought experiment:

Just tell your girlfriend during face to face coitus that she doesn't exist and is only a figment of your imagination and see how much longer she sticks around to do what you want.

Solipsism is just stupid and lazy, a thought experiment for people who are nihilists and those that don't like interactions with others.

Well Koco, with all due respect I can't agree. I mean, how can you prove qualia? How can you prove that I am experiencing this moment in time and that I'm not just a biological machine going along with the motions? You're just assuming that solipsism means that everyone else is a projection, but really all solipsism is about is pointing out that you can't experience what someone else is experiencing, which means you can't even prove that they're experiencing anything. Idk, it's kind of a complicated topic and I feel like I may not be describing it well. Like, take the word 'soul' for instance. I think the word 'soul' is the predecessor to qualia, an idea that there is something within a person or within other living things that experiences and then transcends after death. Idk, are you familiar with Monadology? The idea of free agents that experience?

Lol what was that thought experiment? Philosophical Zombies isn't the concept that other people are figments of your imagination, it's the concept that a human being may not experience qualia. Like, I'm a human being, I know I experience qualia, but can I experience any other being's qualia? No. And that's why solipsism and philosophical zombies are legitimate ideas. Are there any real philosophical zombies? It's entirely impossible to answer that question without experiencing the qualia of every other human on the planet just to make sure they have it. Even if just one human is walking around without qualia, like a biological machine, then the idea is true.

I just don't think you have an actual disproof of solipsism. I think your thought experiments fall short and have holes in them. Like it feels like you're making assumptions instead of using scientific data to form your idea surrounding solipsism.

are we not already in flatland then? to be sure, your conscious experiences only consist of a "moving forward" and a "looking back" which at each passing moment, intermingling with the other, creates the illusion of free will. The past is always the past and the choices of the future will always arrive but momentarily.

The last thread is at its limits, but feminist butthurt is exquisite.
Why is this good thing again?
Why do feminists treat it like dogma and act as though it cannot possibly be propaganda that is above critical observation?

Fact: There are not enough women with an IQ exceeding 120 to adequately occupy the roles men fill in the workplace and fufill those duties properly.
Fact: Women in the workplace has made them miserable, turned them into wage slaves, suppressed wages by effectively doubling supply of worker in addition to increasing tax base
Fact: As consequence, women do not have sufficient time to child reari, and have to outsource it to the service industry, creating new trillion dollar taxed industries
Fact: Intelligence Agencies has a long history of infiltrating countercultural movements and steering them to serve their interests and feminism is no exception

>National Review Online
>Up-to-the-minute conservative commentary on politics, news, and culture

This is a conservative web magazine that's associated with pseudoscience like DDT denial. It is not any kind of peer-reviewed or accredited source. Secondly, it doesn't refute anything I said.

>Readers could easily interpret the above paragraph to mean that when a woman files a complaint about sexual assault, then an assault did in fact occur over 90 percent of the time. That interpretation is wrong.

First of all, I didn't even cite the University of Columbia report, and my source was focused on a federal level, not just campuses. Secondly, my contention did not state the above misinterpretation, it was an estimate of the number of actual rapes that go unreported to law enforcement based on things like medical information, police reports and surveys. I never said that every rape accusation which doesn't lead to a conviction and isn't proven to be a false conviction is true, I even specifically mentioned felony convictions as opposed to misdemeanors.


I hope you're being sarcastic.

I don't think those people avoid women IRL, I think they're just extremely pissed off that the media and liberal society at large pretend that false rape accusations aren't a big deal because they'd rather support every woman that claims to be raped than support the basic rights of men. Like, no joke, I see all these feminists passing around a picture depicting like 1000 'rapists' and how only a handful go to court and then even a smaller handful get imprisoned and then like 2 of the 1000 are 'fake' rape reports. I'd like to point out from a philosopher's standpoint that there is no actual consensus on how many rape reports are fake because the only ones counted as fake are the ones proven as fake, so every single other instance has the serious possibility of being fake, but feminists would never admit that some women lie about being raped because it looks bad on their part, but the reality is that the Courts saw this coming hundreds of years ago and instated an innocent until proven guilty norm to avoid false imprisonment at all costs.

I also am 420 JENK ADDICTED The Dino War, also known as the Dino Wars (after the recent War on Dino), is an ongoing global war that has lasted from 2014 to the present, though related conflicts began earlier. It involved the vast majority of the world's nations—including all of the great powers—eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Belivers and the UnBelivers. It was the most widespread war in internet history, and directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of "total war", the major participants threw their entire alchoholic, industrial, babble and scientific capabilities behind thier war effort, erasing the distinction between unuseful and useful resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the non beligerent powers and the strategic clogging of whole web sites (during which approximately one million people were killed, including the use of weapons of mass confusion) it resulted in an estimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities. These made The Dino War the deadliest conflict in human history.[4]
The Empire of Unbelivers aimed to dominate /Dino/ /B/ /420/ /Sports/ /Jenk/ /Hooch/ /H/ and /Weed/ and was already at war with /Chem/ in 2013 but the war is generally said to have begun on 13 Febuary 2014 with the invasion of Dino by Scientologists and subsequent declarations of war on Dino by the allies powers of the UnBelivers. From late 2013 to early 2015, in a series of campaigns and treaties, the UnBelivers conquered or controlled much of continental 420chan, and formed the Eternal Alliance with Hooch and Sports. Following the Liturgian Pact Hooch and the 420 partitioned and annexed over 15 boards of their imediate neighbours, including Jenk, Del, Dis, M, and Hist. Dino was the only Allied forces continuing the fight against the UnBelivers, with campaigns in Jenk as well as Hooch as well as the long-running war in IRC. In June 2014, the UnBeliver alliance of The Earth launched a massive invasion of Dino opening the largest land theatre of war in history, which trapped the major part of the UnBelivers military forces into a War of Attrition. In October 2014, Sports attacked /B/ and Dino youtube videos in the colorado serves, and q…

Then start one. There are two options when a board gets boring:
  1. Start some conversation
  2. Leave

I did the second option.

What is "Real"? What is "Illusion" or "Delusion"?

How does one live life with the absurd understanding that we will live and die never truly knowing one way or the other, and who is right or wrong?

You present a very interesting idea of anarchy. To live "without rulers, not without rules."

One wonders if people truly have an inherent sense of morality. For all of the selfish and corrupt behaviors that people exhibit on a daily basis, often those same people are driven to incredible acts of goodwill in times of crisis. As though incredible stress can break through our externally enforced morality and tap into an inherent desire to do good. Without deeper understanding, people may quickly revert to their usual, comfortable modes of thinking. Someone who has lost the beliefs that ruled their lives would doubtless be disoriented and unable to fathom an internal system of morality.

Perhaps I should spend more time thinking about the morals that have been impressed upon me, and of those which lie buried underneath.

the thing is none of those things resulting in making you unlost.

You aren't hoping to find your old god, and realizing it's chaotic gives you no way to navigate anything.

Assuming that life is chaotic and isn't ruled by the control or order you had, doesn't remove the consequences that achieved the apparent order you have lost grasp of.(So as not to come to the conclusion there is no order or not.)

You still will be surrounded by the illusionairy world you believe isn't there. And will now appear disconnected and be treated with hostility. The same way any person is who seems to be lost on a highway or not turning on a traffic light the same time everybody else does.

That's how you will be treated. Go ahead and come up with an answer for that before you go around cheating the idea that one's beliefs should be let go of.

That's the only thing keeping you sane, safe, and happy.

The truth of anything is always hoped, and hope is always dependent on will.

>How does one live life with the absurd understanding that we will live and die never truly knowing one way or the other, and who is right or wrong?

Because the reality is so mind bogglingly complex that things like good and evil, right and wrong, seem immediately egotistical and having only to do with YOUR own personal concern with YOUR own personal life. Which, that kind of concern itself seems a bit absurd in itself. You dont have to know WHY it's wrong to kill a child, for no reason. There is an inbred mechanism in most people that just tell them it's wrong. Like jacking off into your own mouth, or eating your own poo. It's the same mechanism at work. Now whether or not these intuitions connect with some higher metaphysical plane is another question entirely, which might grant them some higher or different degree of legitimacy. But as it stands, we seem to be thrust primarily in some shared, large, physical reality, and when these mechanisms of avoidance become perturbed, that's when people do fucked up shit, so just concern yourself with maintaining your own purity of self, and you should be set. That's all you can really do.

Any description of reality is incomplete, outdated, and taken out of context.

You get over it and accept that knowledge, though imperfect, can still be useful.

As my knowledge grows, I notice that I have concepts and terms to describe and make sense of things I've seen and thought about, but could never properly put into words. I have become acutely aware of my lack of education and want to rectify this. I would, therefore, like to ask /pss/ to recommend books, lectures, documentaries, articles, whatever else that will serve as a sort of primer for the Humanities. I want to expand my knowledge and avoid the pitfalls of pseudo-intellectual misinterpretation and misunderstanding.

I just realized that Sophie's World is from Norway, and Toki Wartooth is as well. That's awesome. Thank you for the suggestion, it looks interesting. Now I just need recommendations for other disciplines. Maybe I'll look up some videos later as a sort of primer.

Sophie's world is more of a novel where the main character gets a solid introduction in philosophical canon. Solid enough so the reader gets educated by it. Also the twist is a classic philosophical one.

If you want raw philosophy you could start with Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Nietzsche. Not that it's a hugely important book in the canon, or an anchor to start your studies with. However he poetry is great, it's written as a holy book so it's a joy to read.

I think Man in the Modern Age by Karl Jaspers is really good. Check that out.

seconding zarathustra. i really didn't understand it thoroughly after my first time through, so it's perfect for rereading. i think it sparked my love for philosophy in general, but also for the poetic style of philosophy. definitely recommended; it's thick but keep chugging. it'll be worth it further down the road

Here's a bucket of articles that we went over in my philosophy of mind (/philosophical psychology) course.

Thought you guys would enjoy it since this board loves to talk about consciousness and free will and stuff. There's some good stuff in there, some classics, some basics, some more obscure things, whatever. If you have articles of your own, feel free to post. No hippie bullshit though
