The purpose of philosophy and of man? Discussions on the history and metaphysics of philosophy
by Hearts and Minds Media
 
These pages are a collection of my studies on history and metaphysics of philosophy as a post-grad student with amendments and alterations to better reflect my journey through these areas to discuss the purpose of philosophy and of man as a thinking being.
I hope you enjoy and it stimulates interest in these fundaments areas of philosophy
'According to Plato, what is the task of a philosopher?'
Descartes argues in the sixth meditation that there is a real distinction between mind and body. What does this mean? Do the arguments and examples used prove this exists?
'Gassendi disagrees with Descartes’ theory of the soul as immaterial. How does he arrive at this position and how far do you agree with his arguments?' Discuss the theory of the soul as immaterial and Gassendi's position and then the argument
Fine tuned faith - Faith and Science are they compatible?
by Hearts and Minds Media
 
Using open-wiki material I have hoped to present a easy to read argument on science and faith presenting both sides on compatibility. Personally having investigated scientifically and reasoned as ciritcally as possible throughout my career with a faith in Christianity I believe they can be beneficial to each other with a balanced perspective.Below is a short-excerpt from the introduction.
First, as Richard Mouw (former President of Fuller Seminary) reminded us, God is slow. The universe is 13.4 billion years old (I think I’m remembering that correctly!). It took billions of years for life on earth to exist, much less for humans to populate it. That’s how much time God has. That’s how long God is willing to work in order to create and ultimately recreate this world. As we read in 2 Peter: "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
Second, God is faithful. The Scriptural witness proclaims God’s faithfulness, but what I saw at this conference was the faithfulness of God on display through nature. Take gravity, which exerts its pull throughout the universe in a consistent, measurable, predictable way. The physical laws which govern the planets and the heavens hint at the steadiness, the constancy of God. How glorious to imagine that same faithfulness in our lives?
Third, God is extravagant. There are 500,000 species of beetles.  A series of scientific examples are listed below before investigating the main arguments for and against a compatibility of science and faith....
The relationship between religion and science has been a subject of study since classical antiquity, addressed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others. Perspectives from different geographical regions, cultures and historical epochs are diverse, with some characterizing the relationship as one of conflict, others describing it as one of harmony, and others proposing little interaction.
