Philosophy


Philosophy as a category is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means "love of wisdom".

Answer the Question: What is Enlightenment?

By: Immanuel Kant, Dr.; Daniel Fidel Ferrer, Translator

Essay translated from German to English by Daniel Fidel Ferrer in August 2013. Original publication of Immanuel Kant's essay in German: By Immanuel Kant. "Beantwortung der Frage: Was ist Aufklarung?" in Berlinische Monatsschrift Book. 4, 12. December, 1784), pages 481-494.

Kant wrote in 1784 in the first part of his essay: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one understanding without guidance from another. Self-incurred is this tutelage when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but rather of resolve and courage to use it without direction from another. Sapere Aude! [Latin translated: Dare to know, from Horace]. Have courage to use your own mind! Thus is the motto of Enlightenment."

Paradoxism and Postmodernism in Florentin Smarandache's Work

By: Ion Soare

The basic thesis of the paradoxism: Every thing/ phenomenon/ idea has a meaning and a non-meaning in a contradictory harmony. The essence of the paradoxism: a) The NonSense has a Sense: (and reciprocally) b) The Sense has a NonSense. The subsequent development of the paradoxism: To generalize the literature in scientific spaces ( Lobacevski, Riemann, Banach etc.), n-dimensional and infinite-dimensional spaces too. Paradoxism’s delimitation from other avant-gardes...

Intelligent creator, Florentin Smarandache has accumulated in the while enough self conviction in matters of paradoxism and enough (non)life ( literary and publishing inclusive) experience in order to create a coherent volume, where nothing ( or almost) is put/let at random. After Introduction in the empire of error ( a manifesto of the paradoxism too, but covered with another... linguistic packing), the volume continues with a “short resume” about the ... terror/theory’...

Neutrosophic Interpretation of The Analects of Confucius

By: Florentin Smarandache; Fu Yuhua

“The Analects of Confucius” are considered a record of the words and acts of Confucius and his disciples, as well as the discussions they held. Written during the Spring and Autumn Period through the Warring States Period(475 BC - 221 BC) the Analects is the representative work of Confucianism and continues to have a tremendous influence on Chinese and East Asian thoughts and values today. In neutrosophy, between two ends there are many, sometimes a continuous range of n...

Negative Part 3 You want to know a person truly, not only to understand this person’s words, but also understand this person’s actions and ideas. Commentary on Negative Part 3 Confucius did not mention to understand people’s ideas. While the words and actions are controlled by the ideas. Neutrosophic Part 3 The person’s time and energy were limited. For knowing a man truly, besides one person’s ability, other person’s help is needed in many cases, sometimes even the...

Life Strategies Part Three : Theatrical & Non-Novel Strategies

By: Florentin Smarandache

This small book, which is rather a draft, comprises a collection of ideas, viewpoints and methods in various aspects of theater, performance arts, non-novel1 etc. If for no other reason, the ideas listed here at least can stimulate further thoughts and research – for instance, young writers may use these ideas to make his/her drama or novel more enthralling.

• The best functions of the theatre are none! (but the theatre itself); • Fatal attraction theatre; • A personage has a man’s mask taped on his bottom which faces the spectators and “talks” like this; • On a cross is crucified a book, or a lamb, or a pork, other object (crucified with the legs up) [which should symbolize something]; • On stage, place some cosmic objects (for example make visible a part of the Earth, or a Lunar Base, …); • Theatre for deaf and mute p...
