Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

What does that have to do with the logic I am taking a course on on the university, the Boolean Algebra, the Natural Deduction, the formal languages... Enlighten me, I just don't see the connection here. Why do you think they are referred to as logical fallacies? It's an error in logic. That's not ...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

My comment was about the humanities and specifically philosophy. The social sciences don't address the topics I mentioned. Though to some degree its difficult to separate the social sciences from humanities. I'm pretty sure they do. Perhaps....just perhaps you should withhold judgments about what y...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

The entire fabric of society is rooted in various philosophical issues. How we distribute wealth, our legal system, our ethics and culture and so cannot be determined scientifically. Or can they? vsauce.png Those are more social science-related issues, which need some serious improvement if we want...

Re: Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

You don't need it, but most people are pretty philosophically illiterate, and might not ever be exposed to ideas like these if not for the mandatory classes. But if nobody needs it, is it of much importance? Yes, and if you're a self starter that makes sense. But what about all of those people who ...

Why are Humanities Courses Required For University Students?

So, as I am going to University next year, I have decided on taking majoring in the sciences (definitely engineering too, I'm planning on bioengineering, but we'll see). My brother is majoring in Civil Engineering, but he still has to take courses like philosophy, literature, writing, etc. So did my...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

Well that's not surprising. Of course you're one of those. And you don't care much about all of the children who have to die of preventable disease, or the domestic terrorism these radical groups create, do you? Proliferation of bad ideas is more important than human life to you. He might be one of...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

Or, equivalently, you could be very wrong and refuse to trust me because my ideas seem alien to you. The irony is too immense in this statement. Er, no, it's always a fallacy. :lol: A logical fallacy is whenever there is a plausible situation in which the premisses are true but the conclusion is fa...

Re: Which Sciences Are the Most Useful?

It's hard to keep correcting you when almost everything you say is filled with so much wrong. I don't think I've heard anyone use the word "importance" that way. Deductive reasoning. Critical thought. Use them. Look at the context, and you'll see how it'd be applicable to our conversation. I think I...
