Ontology Ontology, the philosophical study of being in general, or of what applies neutrally to everything that is real. It was called “first philosophy” by Aristotle in Book IV of his Metaphysics. The Latin term ontologia (“science of being”) was felicitously invented by the German philosopher Jacob Lorhard (Lorhardus) and first appeared in his work Ogdoas Scholastica (1st ed.) in 1606. It entered general circulation after being popularized by the German rationalist philosopher Christian Wolff in his Latin writings, especially Philosophia Prima sive Ontologia (1730; “First Philosophy or Ontology”). History and scope Wolff contrasted ontology, or general metaphysics, which applied to all things, with special metaphysical theories such as those of the soul, of bodies, or of God. Wolff claimed that ontology was an a priori discipline that could reveal the essences of things, a view strongly criticized later in the 18th century by David Hume and Immanuel Kant. In the early 20th century the term w ...

PROPOSAL To Federally Fund a National Home-School Education Program INTRODUCTION The Genetic Foundations of Human Intelligence We come into this world as empty vessels, blank tablets, just waiting to be filled with experience. David Hume (1711-1776 C.E.). When Hume made that philosophical observation, the Industrial Revolution had just started in England. First fathers, then mothers were drawn out of the home in pursuit of wages offered on the mass production lines. Left without guidance from their parents, children were sent to be educated in State classrooms, In devising a school curriculum, Hume's counsel regarding the “empty vessel” precondition of the child psyche, was adopted as the State Education model. And so, continuing with the same modus operandi to this very day, for six to eight hours a day, for twelve years and more, the “blank tablets” of the children of the world are systematically filled with textbook knowledge. Hume and the global education system that has applied his assum ...

"What is truth?" Answer: Almost two thousand years ago, Truth was put on trial and judged by people who were devoted to lies. In fact, Truth faced six trials in less than one full day, three of which were religious, and three that were legal. In the end, few people involved in those events could answer the question, “What is truth?” After being arrested, the Truth was first led to a man named Annas, a corrupt former high priest of the Jews. Annas broke numerous Jewish laws during the trial, including holding the trial in his house, trying to induce self- accusations against the defendant, and striking the defendant, who had been convicted of nothing at the time. After Annas, the Truth was led to the reigning high priest, Caiaphas, who happened to be Annas’s son-in-law. Before Caiaphas and the Jewish Sanhedrin, many false witnesses came forward to speak against the Truth, yet nothing could be proved and no evidence of wrongdoing could be found. Caiaphas broke no fewer than seven laws while trying to ...

"Human Nature is the only science of man; and yet has been hitherto the most neglected. David Hume"
"Actually, there’s a famous sort of paradox posed by David Hume centuries ago. Hume is one of the founders of classical liberalism. He’s an important philosopher and a political philosopher. He said that if you take a look at societies around the world—any of them—power is in the hands of the governed, those who are being ruled. Hume asked, why don’t they use that power and overthrow the masters and take control? He says, the answer has to be that, in all societies, the most brutal, the most free, the governed can be controlled by control of opinion. If you can control their attitudes and beliefs and separate them from one another and so on, then they won’t rise up and overthrow you. That does require a qualification. In the more brutal and repressive societies, controlling opinion is less important, because you can beat people with a stick. But as societies become more free, it becomes more of a problem, and we see that historically. The societies that develop the most expansive propaganda sy ...

75 Yesterday was blistering hot. It was “Death on the Nile” hot. I picture Peter Ustinov perspiring. Instead of hurtling around on a mountain bicycle or jogging – I sought the cool sanctuary of a wood and sat down on a bench as the sun decanted through the luscious green canopy. I was refreshed by a breeze and shade. There I pulled out a copy of David Hume’s An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding edited and introduced by Peter Millican. His introduction is very thoughtful and concise. It sailed through the history of philosophy, from the Aristotelians up to David Hume. It touched on the renaissance of science. I could see that Isaac Newton in his conception of the universe and the forces that bore upon material things, opened also a door for religious speculation about the unexplained forces. Newton had perhaps deliberately in his instrumentalist approach to the universe kept that door open. Hume was in his radical Treatise in favour of slamming that door firmly shut. What is interesting, fro ...

On Tuesday I tried to find out what books I’ll need for the Canadian Short Story and Knowledge and Reality courses I plan to take this fall. The previous syllabus for the English course lists as required reading two anthologies: “Canadian Stories: Short Stories in English Before World War I” and “The New Oxford Book of Canadian Short Stories in English”. I couldn’t find any downloads of either anthology, but looking at various reviews of the books I found a partial list of some of the authors whose stories are contained within. It included Alice Munro, Stephen Leacock, Mavis Gallant, Carol Shields, Matt Cohen, Guy Vanderhaeghe and Mordecai Richler, as well as about fifteen others so I searched for all the authors on Pirate Bay and was able to download large collections of five of them. I looked for a Knowledge and Reality syllabus but there was none. I did however find a site where students offer reviews of courses and David Hume was referenced several times, so I downloaded his Treatise of Hu ...

In 1664 Louis XIV of France inaugurated the Palace of Versailles. In 1711 David Hume, Scottish philosopher, was born. In 1718 New Orleans was founded. In 1763 Pontiac's Rebellion began with an attack on Fort Detroit as various Native American tribes united in an attempt to drive white soldiers and settlers out of the Great Lakes region. In 1794 Robespierre introduced the Cult of the Supreme Being as the new state religion of the French Republic. In 1812 Robert Browning, English poet, was born. In 1832 the independence of Greece was recognised by the Treaty of London. In 1833 Johannes Brahms, German composer, was born.

THE GOSPEL CALLING SERIES 20 HOW TO MINISTER THE GOSPEL PART 9: BY PREACHING AND TEACHING THE GOSPEL PART D Today I just want to bring to your attention some few thoughts I have developed from some quotes I chanced on from some seasoned men of God that I believe will be a great blessing to you as it has been to me in the preaching & teaching of the gospel. First, we must understand that in the preaching and teaching of the gospel, it is our availability that counts and not our abilities for God is not wicked to give you a work without giving you tools & resources to work with. Just avail yourself for God’s use. “A man who listened once to D.L Moody was very critical of his grammar and reprimanded him for it. Moody's response was:" I wish my grammar were better. I wish I had a better education, but I am using all the grammar I have for the glory of God. Are you doing as much with yours?" God is more interested in our availability than he is our ability.” Please just make the gospel message available ...

Let's dig together: David Hume wrote: “Where ambition can be so happy as to cover its enterprises, even to the person himself, under the appearance of principle, it is the most incurable and inflexible of all human passions.” While Edmund Burke stated “Well is it known that ambition can creep as well as soar.” Beloved members, do you think that ambition is always negative? Is it really an incurable passion?

How Can I Know Anything At All? We start this new column with the question which plausibly must be answered before we can answer any other question. The following answers to this central philosophical question each win a random book. (The order of the answers is not significant.) How can I know (perceive with certainty) anything at all? My first triumphant answer is that I can’t; gloriously confirmed by studies of philosophy, especially of David Hume. Without the possibility of knowledge, I am left with belief: belief about all things, material or abstract. Belief about everything I chose to accept as valid; that this table is real, what scientists tell me, ideas, religions, our amazing planet and its people. There is a beautiful democracy in unknowing. Except I do have trouble with ‘the real world’. I cannot trust material objects to stay where I believe them to be (my pens for example), and I also have difficulty with with the limitations of man-made systems like mathematics and logic.

You are Desmond David Hume. You are passionate, loyal, and always care deeply for those closest to you. Based on the historical philosophy of David Hume, true knowledge is always derived from your everyday experiences. Belief is not what someone has told you it is, it is what you have directly experienced for yourself. While you may find it hard to stand up for what you believe in at times, you nevertheless have the passion to be the person that you want to be.
"A wise man proportion his belief to the evidence" - David Hume
When suicide is out of fashion we conclude that none but madmen destroy themselves; and all the efforts of courage appear chimerical to dastardly minds ... Nevertheless, how many instances are there, well attested, of men, in every other respect perfectly discreet, who, without remorse, rage, or despair, have quitted life for no other reason than because it was a burden to them, and have died with more composure than they lived?

"All plans of government which suppose great reformation in the manners of mankind are plainly imaginary." - David Hume
“Enchanted but unchanged” is how Oswald Chambers describes Ezekiel’s congregation. It is a fair description of them and of many listeners to the word of God since then. For there is a captivating beauty about that word even to hardened hearts, and there is something arresting about the gifted preacher’s voice: a magnetism, which holds the seemingly indifferent. “I thought you did not believe in the gospel!” said someone to David Hume, the Scottish philosopher and skeptic, as he met him going to hear Whitefield in Edinburgh at five o’clock one morning. “I don’t,” Hume replied, “but he does!” “My preaching is a failure if it can charm but not change,” was the remark of one gifted preacher. This is truth, which should rightly search our hearts. However, with Ezekiel and his hearers before us, we must not allow the enemy to discourage us unduly. We will not put too much weight on the expression of devotion at the door, nor will we become cynical. It is not our ability to enchant th ...

What David Hume has to say about Keynesianism
"Keynesianism is not new. It is just a revival of the old mercantilist ideas that Hume was targeting."
Because of the Scottish Enlightenment which gave us intellectual giants such as Adam Smith and David Hume

4 of 5 stars to An Enquiry Concerning Human Understan... by David Hume
"But were this world ever so perfect a production, it must still remain uncertain, whether all the excellencies of the work can be justly ascribed to the workman. If we survey a ship, what an exalted idea must we form of the ingenuity of the carpenter, who framed so complicated, useful, and beautiful a machine? And what surprise must we entertain, when we find him a stupid mechanic, who imitated others, and copied an art, which, through a long succession of ages, after multiplied trials, mistakes, corrections, deliberations, and controversies, had been gradually improving? Many worlds might have been botched and bungled, throughout an eternity, ere this system was struck out: much labour lost: many fruitless trials made: and a slow, but continued improvement carried on during infinite ages in the at of world-making. In such subjects, who can determine, where the truth; nay, who can conjecture where the probability, lies; amidst a great number of hypotheses which may be proposed, and a still greater number ...

“ We fancy, because an individual would be much richer, were his stock of money doubled, that the same good effect would follow, were the money of every one increased; not considering that this would raise as much the price of every commodity, and reduce every man in time to the same condition as before. . . .” -- David Hume
Dropping that Wittgenstein twaddle over and over gets old, Alex. David Hume told me so.

Truth springs from [sustained} argument among friends, says David Hume & neither logic nor sermons nor stats, nor facts, nor data convince says Whitman and peer pressure is forever says Patti Smith and if fools persist in their folly they become wise and the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom says Blake and let him with no spin cast the first stone, Jesus recommends and if you point your finger at your neighbor there are 3 pointing back at you an old Moral Rearmament bromide my old man would sing to me, and an enemy is as good as a Buddha and if you see the Buddha on the road, kill him.

"I am nothing but a bundle of perceptions" - David Hume
The 18th century British philosopher, David Hume, did not believe in God. He did not believe in miracle either. He said that if he actually saw a dead person coming back to life, he would still not believe. He would rather conclude that his eyes deceived him, since his reason(mind) would still be telling him that it was impossible for a dead person to come back to life.
"Beauty is a mystery ... It exists only in the mind which contemplates it." ~ David Hume
« Be a philosopher but, amid all your philosophy be still a man. » David Hume
David Hume must have a tornado inside his brain.

Jorge Luis Borges They knew it, the fervent pupils of Pythagoras: That stars and men revolve in a cycle, That fateful atoms will bring back the vital Gold Aphrodite, Thebans, and agoras. In future epochs the centaur will oppress With solid uncleft hoof the breast of the Lapith; When Rome is dust the Minotaur will moan Once more in the endless dark of its rank palace. Every sleepless night will come back in minute Detail. This writing hand will be born from the same Womb, and bitter armies contrive their doom. (Edinburgh's David Hume made this very point.) I do not know if we will recur in a second Cycle, like numbers in a periodic fraction; But I know that a vague Pythagorean rotation Night after night sets me down in the world On the outskirts of this city. A remote street Which might be either north or west or south, But always with a blue-washed wall, the shade Of a fig tree, and a sidewalk of broken concrete. This, here, is Buenos Aires. Time, which brings Either love or money to men, hands on to me O ...
Eighteenth century philosopher Bishop George Berkeley believed that objects only truly exist in the mind of someone who perceives them - an idea he called immaterialism. His work on the nature of perception was a spur to many later thinkers, including David Hume and Immanuel Kant. The clarity of Berkeley's writing, and his ability to pose a profound problem in an easily understood form, have made him one of the most admired early modern thinkers. Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss his work. Listen to In Our Time on Bishop Berkeley:
I've already proven God's existence (so have u) despite having no empirical proof. David Hume's epistemology is a dead end, btw.
Okay, I'm addicted to these buzzfeed quizzes. I just found out today that I am a mix of honey nut cheerios, Katniss Everdeen, David Hume, Gromit, Misteeq, Barack Obama, Shakespeare's Beatrice, Mike Teavee, The guy who hides in the outhouse at Jurassic Park, and a ragdoll kitten who plays the keyboard in the band. That's a crazy mix. I'm tempted to see which Golden Girl I am but I think I will refrain from self discovery for awhile. Plus, I saw so many pictures of pugs doing those quizzes, that I'm all pugged out :-)
The ones on David Hume, Descartes, and John Locke were pretty good.

"Silenced Voices" by Ethan G. (Grade 9) On February 14, 1989, the spiritual leader of Iran called on all devout Muslims to kill Salman Rushdie because of references to the prophet Mohammed in his novel The Satanic Verses. In response, thousands of people worldwide showed their solidarity by wearing "I am Salman Rushdie" buttons. Rushdie went into hiding until 1998, emerging only when the order was lifted. In a world without the freedom to read, I am Salman Rushdie. I am 460 Confucian scholars who were suffocated to death so that recorded history would begin with the reign of Emperor Shih Huang Ti. I am Martin Luther whose Ninety-Five Theses was burned, but not before it set the stage for the Protestant Reformation. I am Galileo Galilei, Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, John Stuart Mill, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume, whose masterpieces of science and philosophy, though critical to the development of Western Civilization, were prohibited by the Catholic Church and listed in the Index Librorum P ...
