Flagler College Philosophy/Religion Symposium

Flagler College Philosophy/Religion Symposium The most awesome people you will ever meet. The Philosophy Symposium.

The Flagler College Philosophy/Religion Symposium is a school club that meets Thursdays at 7pm to discuss philosophical issues. We usually meet in the gazebo and then decide another place to move onto. Club attendees include everyone from atheists, agnostics, Christians, spiritual people, Jewish people, Muslims and people who just don't care about religion. Some people come and don't even talk; they're just interested in listening in - and that's ok. Everyone is welcome. Philosophy Club is a place to discuss a variety of issues. You do not have to be a philosophy or religion major or minor to attend. Anyone interested in coming can do just that: come. We are not a club that thrives on being pretentious and arrogant; we have interesting, thought-provoking discussions while making friends and getting to know ourselves better. Besides, it's usually more fun than listening to your roommate complain about the same boring issues. For those interested in being on the mailing list, please email [email protected]. We'll put you on the list sooner or later.

Mission: To seek truth, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us.

What would Wittgenstein say about that dress? - BBC News

The internet broke over this dress, but Wittgenstein broke my mind.

The colour of "that dress" has been fascinating people all around the world, including Prof Barry C Smith of the University of London's Institute of Philosophy.

Hmmmm. What do philosophy students/graduates/professors think about this article?

Australian scientists have recreated a famous experiment and confirmed quantum physics's bizarre predictions about the nature of reality, by proving that reality doesn't actually exist until we measure it - at least, not on the very small scale....

Good luck to everyone!

What philosopher should YOU fight via Tumblr (thenymreaper).

There are a lot of philosophers out there, and they all need to get pummeled from time to time.

Who comes out on top?
You vs. Various philosophers

The Outcomes:

Socrates
Who wins: Socrates
Look, there is a -100% chance that Socrates lands a KO, but that’s because he doesn’t need to. you come in spoiling for a fight and by the end of it you’re seriously debating whether you can truly claim to have ownership of your arms. It makes you want to fight him more and then you just get deeper into the spiral. don’t bother.

Plato
Who wins: Plato
Sorry, but his name literally means ‘burly guy.’ you’re not going to win this one.

Aristotle
Who wins: You
Ok actually I don’t know who wins here but Aristotle needs to be beaten up so badly. Please punch him. I’ll help.

Diogenes:
Who wins: Diogenes
I get why you want to fight him. I want to fight him. Everyone wants to fight him. don’t do it tho. His entire life is a series of him asking people to fight him and he still lived to one million years old. Don’t do it.

Epicurus
Who wins: Epicurus
Jesus don’t fight Epicurus. dude does NOT care. your punches will be like water off a ducks back.

Kant
Who wins: Nobody
I forget the argument I was going to make because I just looked him up and he looks like a weird adult baby.

you’ll win this one but why do you want to fight an adult baby. Avoid.

Voltaire
Who wins: You
sidenote: is there a single picture where Voltaire doesn’t look punchable?

honestly. anyway, look at the guy, he’s like 20 pounds. punch him.

Hume
Who wins: Hume
'In 1731, he was afflicted with a ravenous appetite and palpitations of the heart. After eating well for a time, he went from being “tall, lean and raw-bon'd” to being “sturdy, robust [and] healthful-like”' HE GOT ILL AND IT ONLY MADE HIM STRONGER. AVOID.

Hegel
Who wins: ???
I honestly don’t know but ughhhhhhh he’s so smuuuuuug. Do it. Beat up Hegel.

Kierkegaard
Who wins: You
Like, the entire Concept of Anxiety. there is no way you could lose this fight. go for it.

Spinoza
Who wins: You
But you won’t feel good about it. All this scrawny man wants to do is grind up some lenses and maybe watch some spiders making a web if its a wild day. Don’t fight Spinoza.

Descartes
Who wins: Descartes
Guy was a mercenary. He like, did fencing. Don’t fight Descartes.

Nietzsche
Who wins: You
Use his moustache as a pulley and kick him in the chest. When you knock him out whisper ‘human, all too human….’, and laugh.

John Stuart Mill

Who wins: You
JSM is the proto weird atheist guy who corners you and insists on going on and on about Richard Dawkins. You could take him easy. Fight John Stuart Mill.

Schopenhauer
Who wins: Schopenhauer
He believed that the world is fundamentally unsatisfied and in search of satisfaction?? This man is DYING to punch somebody. Don’t do it.
