The grammatical and syntactical structure of your question already begs the question. What "is" truth assumes that truth is a substantive. Furthermore, you also presuppose the meaning of "is-ness." So before we ask the question of what is truth, we must answer the question of Being.
>>91394 The problem with that is that statement in Greek actually translates on the basis of logos and aletheia. Word being translated from logos. And truth being translated from aletheia. And so, logos means a whole lot more than just word in our average sense of word, as in the biblical word. Furthermore, aletheia means a whole lot more than just truth as that which is corresponding or in accordance to some fact, etc.
>>91298 >Jesus said, Truth is from heaven. >Pilate said, Therefore truth is not on earth. >Jesus saith to Pilate, Believe that truth is on earth among those, who when they have the power of judgment, are governed by truth, and form right judgment. I don't get why the Gospel of Nicodemus is apocryphal, the harrowing of hell is pretty good especially when Satan and Beelzebub are arguing
>>91508 Well yeah but I bet Jesus had some sort of retort that he never got to use >oi m8 u a king or somefink >pssh, yeh whatever u say kid, but u best no im on the side of truth >whats troof >well, I- >anyway, good talk, smell you later >y-you too
Have you actually tried reading the science of logic? Because the next step would be that determinate being results from the dialectical movement between being and nothing. As completely indeterminate pure being is as equivalent in meaning as to that of nothingness. They are equivocal. So insofar as they are equivocal, being must be determined by thought. Hence, determinate being. But that wasn't my question. Because your answer still assumes the meaning of "is-ness", your answer is now just that Being 'is' Nothingess, which isn't imo what Hegel actually meant, but w.e.
>>91642 'is' and 'is not' that is, the copula here is incomplete because it doesn't show that as much as they are the same through the mediation of one into the other, they are as much not the same but the absolute distinction. The movement is the sublation of both.
>>91923 >>91942 >>91953 >>91984 >trying to justify solipsism and/or selfishness Did you know you're not the only person in existence? Crazy, I know, but there's so many of them and plenty of them have performed actions which have benefited YOU personally. Maybe it's time to give back and equalise?
>>92058 There is only selfishness in the world, society only 'works' by the individuals separating themselves from it so we take from this substance something to ourselves. But this very same individual action is what propels the substance forward, taking care of one's being immediately is the giving to this universal substance something concrete in return, i.e. by buying a product you are not merely being selfish, you indirectly giving someone a job.
I also don't even to tell you how ideologically dangerous is this abstraction of 'people', 'society' or 'arian race' is, anything that doesn't fit with your ideal of this fantasy can be excluded from it. Which of course, is the only way you can have a 'pure' society in the first place.
>>92145 Misanthropy is extremely unbecoming senpai and your views fail to explain charity, benevolence or even human relationships. Which raises the question, has anyone shown you charity, benevolence or friendship?
>>92216 Let me put my point of view more clearly: by doing what I think is right, by taking of care of myself I open the greater possibility of being useful. To take a very crude example, the more rich I am (which is generally viewed as egoism) the more I have the possibility, through an investment in a factory or whatever, to create jobs for other people, not because of my pure intentions mind you, but because is in the very nature of money to circulate, to exist-for-another.
What the individual does IS what is right, but not because some solipsist or misantropic philosophy but exactly the other way around: there is no pure singular individual which is not also part of the social substance.
>>92145 >taking care of one's being immediately is the giving to this universal substance something concrete in return, i.e. by buying a product you are not merely being selfish, you indirectly giving someone a job.
>>92357 This revolution is going fail precisely because it can't take in consideration the individual anxiety that everyone feels when they are put in contrast to the communist utopia. Hate capitalism all you want, at least it embraces the inherent struggle for recogntion and separation of real life.
>>92467 >Meanwhile in the real world factories employ less and less people for the same amount of production
That's not my point, of course there is shit everywhere I know, my idea is that, on a metaphysical level, the very fact the someone took a shit, that shit stops being just 'his' shit, and it is now it's everybody's shit, which (and here is the twist) every one needs it in order to enjoy their sense of smell.
>>91735 >Go to college to study Catholic Systematic Theology with my GI Bill >Friends and family tell me 'you'll never get a decent job like that!' >Work as an ethical consultant for Fortune 100 firms, DoD, and Government teaching guys with MBAs and Engineering degrees that 'stealing is bad' and 'you are personally responsible for your actions' >Make six figures, have a corporate expense account, out earn many of the people I am training Why, yes, I *do* laugh heartily every payday, why do you ask?
>>91890 The 4 instincts of mMan are 1) Self-preservation 2)Preservation of the species 3) social living 4) the truth The ultimate goal of social living, i.e., society, is to produce philosophers and theologians to focus on finding of truth. So engineers and doctors are exist within society to support philosophers and theologians. With a decent grounding in philosophy and theology, you'd know that.
>>92685 Normally it is actually working with the legal team to figure out the nuances of complicated laws to see if a morally permissable thing is legal or if a legally permissable thing is moral (I'm working on a law degree to make this easier for me) and it is often very esoteric and involved. But sweet heavens, sometimes it really is that bad. [actual quote] >"But I am an officer in a corporation and corporations exist to shield people from liability. This means I am not liable for my actions! Don't you know anything?"
