(6) Ralph is fat. Though "Ralph" may name a person, what does "fat" name or denote? Not an individual. Certainly it does not name Ralph, but describes or character- izes him (fairly or no). We might suggest that "fat" denotes something abstract; for example, it and other adjectives might be said to refer to qualities (or "properties," "attri- butes," "features," "characteristics," and the like) of things. "Fat" might be said to name fatness in the abstract, or as Plato would have called it, The Fat Itself. Perhaps what (6) says is that Ralph has or exemplifies or is an instance of the quality fatness. On that interpretation, "is fat" would mean "has fat- ness." But then, if we try to think of subjectpredicate meaning as a matter of concatenating the name of a property with the name of an individual using the copula "is," we would need a second abstract entity for the "is" to stand for, say the relation of "having," as in the individual's having the property
human existence? Sophist: · Sophistication · Sophistry (false reasoning) Relativism- no truth only opinions. The problem is that, it does not work for me. Socrates 469-399 BC · Poor (taught for free) · Ugly (in a culture that highly prized physical beauty) Four sources for his life and philosophy: - Xenophon (Conversations with Socrates); - Plato (Dialogues); - Aristophanes (The Clouds); - Aristotle (various references in his philosophical works) · Irony: originally referred to lying, only after Socrates did it come to have the meaning that it has today. Xanthippe- bad temper, Socrates wife · Taught in the Agora (marketplace) · Taught in the aristocratic youths of Athens including Plato and Alcibiades · Claimed to consult his daimon when he needed the answer to some question
..." I took a big swig of Malbec and read the blog comment again. Ah, the Internet. How far we haven't come. It was amusing, and one of hundreds of similar comments on this particular blog post, but the fact remained: I had gained 34 pounds of muscle, lost 4 pounds of fat, and decreased my total cholesterol from 222 to 147, all in 28 days, without anabolics or statins like Lipitor. The entire experiment had been recorded by Dr. Peggy Plato, director of the Sport and Fitness Evaluation Program at San Jose State University, who used hydrostatic weighing tanks, medical scales, and a tape measure to track everything from waist circumference to bodyfat percentage. My total time in the gym over four weeks? Four hours.3 Eight 30-minute workouts. The data didn't lie. But isn't weight loss or gain as simple as calories in and calories out? It's attractive in its simplicity, yes, but so is cold fusion
Law-makers breaking the law: torture as a justified interrogation technique? 1 Introduction It was Jeremy Bentham who thought of a famous method to give ethics a rational basis. He was fed up with the penal laws where offenders met corporate punishment and together with Cesario Beccaria he stood up to torture, corporal punishment, and the death penalty. He resisted against irrational moral emotions as the instigation for ethical conduct, saying only reasonable grounds could justify the moral decisions of individuals and legislators. And now his theory of is the one that is known for justifying torture (Verplaetse, 2008). Since 9/11 and the following fight against terrorism it became clear that the Bush administration thought of torture as something justifiable while it goes against all possible agreed upon treaties and conventions. One could indeed possibly think of situations that could serve as an exception to

colonies and across Europe. Main Ideas of the American Enlightenment: The Enlightenment caused a shift in the cultural and social attitudes of the people, bringing in some new and radical ideas. Republicanism: The doctrine of republicanism asserts a system of a government that is elected by the people of the nation. The roots of this ideology go back to ancient Greece, when the concept of a democratic government was examined by philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. Individual Liberty: "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" developed as the motto of this era, which forms the cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution today. Since the colonies had very few individual rights, they declared certain fundamental rights that they deemed "inalienable." Democracy: The colonies had no say in the formation of the government, and had no representation in the lawmaking process
