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 ...

One man I wud give my vote kesa belaele.Duma Boko. I liked his speech n stil cant stop repeatin the phrase "Bellum omnium contra omnes" a Latin phrase meaning "the war of all against all". It is the description that Thomas Hobbes gives to human existence in the state of nature thought experiment that he conducts in De Cive (1642) and Leviathan (1651). The common modern English usage is a war of "each against all" where war is rare and terms such as "competition" or "struggle" are more common. bellum = war (nominative singular of second-declension neuter noun bellum, war) omnium = of all (genitive plural of adjective omnis, every) contra = against (preposition with accusative case) omnes = all (people) (accusative plural of omnis, every)

But as Thomas Hobbes pointed out so many years ago, civil war is also evil. Indeed it's the greatest of the lot.
Thomas Hobbes took a new look at the ways in which society should function, and he ended up formulating the concept of political science. His crowning achievement, Leviathan, remains among the greatest works in the history of ideas. Written during a moment in English history when the political and social structures as well as methods of science were in flux and open to interpretation, Leviathan played an essential role in the development of the modern world. An outspoken royalist, Hobbes fled to France during the English civil war, where he wrote this polemic, in which he calls for a powerful sovereign—a "Leviathan"—to act as an enforcer of peace and justice. Hobbes' articulation of this long-contemplated philosophy of political and natural science was finally published in 1651, two years after the overthrow and execution of Charles I. It met with a fire-storm of controversy that included charges of treason and sedition. This edition of Hobbes' landmark work is based on the original text. It incorpora ...

In my experience I truly believe that people do not just disconnect them selves from humanity and the world. Honestly I have days where I will go back to my old philosophy of Niccolò Machiavelli where I should just not trust people because they will stab you in the back when they get the chance and then I'll feel like Thomas Hobbes when he says that life is cruel brutish and short. Unfortunately I have been feeling disconnected from the world for a few days. I feel like the Underground Man from Dostoevsky. I feel like if I talk any more, I'll just be ranting and honestly I don't have the time to write something that people will pass over not caring. That is why I stopped writing my journal entries and honestly if you don't like what I say, I don't like how you think.

3.16. The earliest study by a westerner on human society is so very recent by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) in his celebrated book “Leviathan”.
Quotes on Humanity Or Human nature refers to the distinguishing characteristics, including ways of thinking, feeling and acting, that humans tend to have naturally, i.e. independently of the influence of culture. The questions of what these characteristics are, what causes them, and how fixed human nature is, are amongst the oldest and most important questions in western philosophy. These questions have particularly important implications in ethics, politics, and theology. This is partly because human nature can be regarded as both a source of norms of conduct or ways of life, as well as presenting obstacles or constraints on living a good life. The complex implications of such questions are also dealt with in art and literature, while the multiple branches of the Humanities together form an important domain of inquiry into human nature, and the question of what it means to be human. The branches of contemporary science associated with the study of human nature include anthropology, sociology, sociobiolog ...
Thomas Hobbes and John Lock taught us that Man created the state through a social contract and surrendered all his other rights but preserved the right to defend his life even when it meant resisting the sovereign. The killing of innocent Kenyans calls on our state to look at security in a different dimension. Every Kenyan has a right to defend their life against any threat from any quarter. It is time all Kenyans of good character and judgment above the age of eighteen to be authorized to bear arms if they so wish for the sake of self defense. The insecurity caused by this is counterbalanced by that fact that everyone will be their own security and the disciplined forces will be there for state security as well as our general security. there is no other way. Kenyans must not be slaughtered like chicken in their own country. Lamu/ Mpeketoni was a sad occurrence. Security starts with me so let me own my own Gun I will defend myself before the police arrive or I will defend the police incase they are caught ...
