Let's imagine a nation with Christian values deeply embedded into every part of it - politics, government, economics, culture, etc.
Can a society such as this work? Charity would be extremely common. Killing would be absolutely forbidden (which would also mean no death sentences). The average citizen would try his best to follow the teachings of Christ.
How would such a nation survive in the modern world, or manage to keep exisiting at all?
>>382267 ayer was scared of death and despised life so much, also called a nihilist, that he wished that there was no rebirth.
also, the induction is such a basic issue, along with solipsism, that the sterility of any rationalism to go beyond it shows how rationalism is pleb tier. Empiricism trumps anything and makes the rationalist faints before his lack of result to show why we should have more faith in our intellect than in our other five senses.

>>382267 top kek - implying ayer's reductio doesn't attempt to reduce all metaphysical problems to pseudo-problems (e.g. knowing oneself requires sensory perception, but how does one know one has such a perception). there is nothing particularly perspicacious about the arguments either - see Strawson's ordinary language argument.
Here's the correct - vaguely Tarskian - solution: existential predicates regarding the objects of propositions that form predicates regarding existence cannot have a truth... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
-Spain and HRE = Papal State's lapdogs -England wants to piss off France but is too cowardly to engage in a war against it without many allies
It all makes sense France and Papal State had an argument, Papal State switched side against France, its puppets followed and England joined Then Venice switched for France because the other side was full of shit
I have recently played the WW1 podcast by Carlin and was surprised to find a bunch of mistakes in it, minor(-ish) but like quite a few in just the first half an hour or an hour or whatever about the start of WW1 and Princip etc. Like sequence of events, number of people involved, repeating debunked myths (about minor stuff). It was not "podcast-breaking" but it was something rather basic which you would expect from a "Not A Historian (tm) Just A Fan Of History". Made me sort of wary about the rest of his work.
Not my mother, but one of her friends lived in Ukraine during Soviet rule. Said it was awful, crime ridden and never enough food to go around. They eventually moved to East Germany and escaped from there, how they did it I have no idea because it's not a topic I bring up.
Hello /his/torians, I am a final year student of history in glorious eastern Europe university. I am a few months shy of having to sustain my thesis so I could acquire my Bachelor's Degree, and i am in a bit of a pickle… I want to write the thesis in the domain of medieval archaeology but I find myself in trouble of making my mind upon one subject. What I ask of you sirs is to give me an idea, a subject, just that. A siege, remnants of an old town, something interesting (that has been attested archaeology). The only things I could come up with are "Religious... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>382212 DESU teachers don't usually suggest local stuff, even though i plan to develop my career locally, archaeology is not a really big thing around here. It's almost always better to do your thesis in a non-local subject, mostly for recognition abroad.
>>382048 Because Western historiography uses Islam to mean three different things: Islam the religion, Islam the culture, and Islam the geopolitical power. More accurately these would be called Islamic, Islamicate, and Islamdom respectively, but just like how the ERE is the Byzantine Empire it's hard to change convention.
The Arabs of Islamdom's expansion conquered for vague and not yet fully understood reasons, but the spread of Islamic faith seems to have been far from their minds at the time. Instead the religion... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Face it, Europe wants to be unified under a centralized (at least nominally) rule. European states, even the big ones, are too small and interdependent to look each for its own, and the small ones are just puppet states anyway. The Westphalian system was merely a short episode that was falling apart already by the late 1800s, and the current... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
