A SIMPLE APPROACH
TO PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS
Essays on philosophy in plain and simple language
- The Problem of Meaning
An essay in simple language about a problem which arises when we try to think clearly - what exactly do we mean by the words we're using? When we think about important things like Truth and Love and Justice, we wonder about their essential nature and ask ourselves what these words really mean. We often find the words seem to be indefinable. We start to wonder whether we have a problem about the things themselves, or just a problem with how to describe them.
- Everything that happens is inevitable
Explains in simple language why everything is inevitable, and why this doesn't imply Fatalism, or mean that we're mindless puppets. But acceptance of this belief does weaken the powerful grip of destructive feelings of regret, shame and guilt, of blame and bitterness, of resentment and revenge.
- Morality for Sceptics
Morality is nothing more than a set of guidelines which evolved in the brain and in society to facilitate social life. When we accept this we don't have to reject all the traditional moral rules and refuse to support or obey them, but we do change our attitudes to moral questions.
- What is Reality?
The world we experience is an illusion created by the brain. It's only a very indirect representation of things as they really are.
