What Is Love? | Philosophy Talk

www.philosophytalk.org

It may seem doubtful that philosophers have much to tell us about love (beyond their love of wisdom). Surely it is the poets who have the market cornered when it comes to deep reflection on the nature of love.

The Ethics of Drone Warfare | Philosophy Talk

www.philosophytalk.org

Not to mention the implicit effects of drone warfare. The constant state of fear that Pakistani's live in every day cannot be discounted.

What Is (This Thing Called) Love? | Philosophy Talk

www.philosophytalk.org

Love does not seek reciprocality but must remain a fundamental act of giving. Yet true love, love which abides by all the traits above, always yields a friendship in which we might participate in the ultimate goodness and truth of life, viz. God, who is, as metaphysics …

Memes: Viruses of the Mind? | Philosophy Talk

www.philosophytalk.org

Aug 25, 2013 · Gangnam style, Lolcats, and Chuck Norris’ superhuman feats are all memes – units of cultural transmission – that spread through the internet. But when the term was originally coined, memes were posited as vehicles of a kind of evolution, similar to genes and biological evolution.

If avoiding civilian casualties is not a priority for the commander in charge of a strike, we’re going to see lots of civilian casualties, regardless of the kind of weapons used.

www.philosophytalk.org

So the notion of God is a divine shape shifter. In point of fact, it is not sophisticated theology—from Augustine to Father Andrew—that allows God to escape the Problem of Evil.

Nihilism and Meaning | Philosophy Talk

www.philosophytalk.org

'Nihilism’ is based on the Latin word for `nothing’: nihil. Nihilism is used for a lot of positions in philosophy… that there is nothing at all; that we know nothing at all; that there are no moral principles at all, and virtually any other position that could be framed with the word `nothing’. But the most common use, and what we'll explore today, is nihilism as the view that nothing ...
