  • Examples Of Transcendental Spontaneity

    I have talked about how, because of the fortune teller’s spotless record, the people receiving her fortunes would live their lives exactly the way they were always meant to. By this, I mean that in world with a fixed construct of existence everything a person does is exactly what they were meant to, including going and seeing the mythical fortune teller. But how then would that affect the individual? Would they be able to continue living their lives authentically and in what Sartre would call “good faith”? Sartre says, “Transcendental consciousness is an impersonal spontaneity. It determines its existence at each instance, without our being able to conceive anything before it” (Friedman 89). A person who does not like the details of their death would put more planning into their lives and overall be less spontaneous in order to try to avoid their inevitable deaths. This planning would make such a person a less authentic person. They would not seek to be an authentic person, but instead seek to be a person who does not receive the death that the fortune teller has foretold. But what if the person receiving the premonition does not mind the conditions of their death and would not actively try to change it? Would just the knowledge be enough to make them less authentic? I do not think this would be the case. I think that in the case that someone is content with the conditions of their death, that person would then become a more authentic person. “Truth is found not in…

Through lyrics, poems and stories, readers are exposed to disparate portrayals of nature. This difference in interpretation is not surprising because individuals, authors, perceive the world according to their own beliefs, identities and even fears. In other terms,…

  • Compare And Contrast Plato Descartes And The Matrix

    Descartes. If it is impossible to tell the difference between reality and the Matrix (by sensory perception) then how would Cypher even know which one to accept as real? Just like Descartes concluded, Cypher would not be able to know anything for sure beyond the fact that he exists. Cypher concludes that since there really is no difference between knowing the truth and being blissfully ignorant, he would rather have ignorance. Again Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix all three present the same…

  • The Wax Example Of Rene Descartes

    1) Rene Descartes a) Rene Descartes believes that things exist simply because he thinks, therefore he is. This is beautifully illustrated when he gives us the wax example. Before giving that example, Rene Descartes did state that our senses are deceptive and so is our imagination. If we were to go by that, does that mean we exist just because we perceive it through our senses? He concludes no. His explanation of existence is that he is just a “thing” which thinks and because of that he is the…

    with a world that consist solely of material objects, offering no real reason why it exist. Back to the colors, taste, and sounds, they are not explained properly and are not signs of the way the world really is.
