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".

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...

Multirelativitate Interviuri

By: Florentin Smarandache

Noi pledăm pentru un proces cogniscibil care să nu aibă îngrădiri de nici o formă. Din această cauză, hermeneutica se presupune a fi cât mai diversificată. Interviurile următoare împletesc cultura, ştiinţa, tehnica şi viaţa într-un multi-eu. De aceea volumul se numeşte multirelavititate: adică idei şi metodologii privite din unghiuri cât. We advocate for a process that does not have restrictions of any form. Therefore, hermeneutics is assumed to be more diversified. N...

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...

Life Strategies Part Two : Literature

By: Florentin Smarandache

If for nothing else, the (random) sentences listed here at least can stimulate further thoughts and ideas – for instance, young writers and artists may find plenty of interesting ideas for their next literary work (or best-selling novels) in ‘Experimental Literature’ section. In a sense, this book itself is an experimental one. Needless to say, the readers may find that some of these ideas are quite absurd or seemingly outlandish

• Literary disorder; • Self abandonment; • Be an action man; • Abstract theatre (Felix Aderca); • The auto-destruction and the death of literature (Adrian Marino); antipoetic, antiauthor, anti-talent, anti-vocation; the surpassing of the literature; anti-literature; ultraliterature; par-literature; a-literature; “On one side, nothing is literature, on the other side everything is or could be literature. The notion of literary genus disappears.” The literature conditi...

Life Strategies Part One : Works

By: Florentin Smarandache

These ideas were either collected or inspired from author's various lectures of books, journals, newspapers, tv and radio shows, personal conversations. I started to write down such ideas since I was a high school student and continue even today - I always bear with me a small pen and small notebook where I write in the plane, or driving my car, or even in class room. Despite three decades of postponement, I hope this booklet will keep on inspiring the reader, as good id...

• Be competitive; • Don’t be panic, when under pressure; • Use probabilities (how much % you’re expected to produce); • Infiltrate in certain organizations; • To have power of influence; • Charm those who interact with you; • Be firm and fast in decisions; • To make a plan for a long period of time and subdivide it in smaller sub-plans for short periods of time

Florentin's Laws : ЗАКОНЫ ФЛОРЕНТИНА

By: Florentin Smarandache; Adolf Shvedchikov, Translator

Законы Флорентина не ЯВЛЯЮТСЯ ни законами Мэрфн (песс имистичны), ни законами Питера (О ПТИМИСТИЧНЫ), часть из них пессимистична, часть оптимистична, они также частично нейтральны (НИ ОПТИМИСТИЧНЫ, ни пессимистичны), ЧТО-ТО вроде нейтрозофическои ЛОГИКИ. Поэтому в каждом законе Флорентина есть негатив и ПОЗИТИВ, в то время как законы Мэрфи негативны, а законы Питера включают позитивные атрибуты. Florentin’s Laws are neither Murphy’s (pessimistic) Laws nor Peter’s (opt...

Florentin's Laws : If Anything Can Go Wrong, Pass it Onto Someone ...

By: Florentin Smarandache

Florentin’s Laws are neither Murphy’s (pessimistic) Laws nor Peter’s (optimistic) Laws, but partially pessimistic and partially optimistic, while another part is neutral (ambiguous: neither pessimistic nor optimistic) – as in neutrosophic logic. Therefore, each Florentin’s law includes negatives and positives, unlike Murphy’s law which has only negative attributes, and respectively Peter’s law which has mostly positive attributes or results.

Florentin’s Laws: To hell with Murphy, deviate! 1. If anything can go wrong, pass it on to someone else! 2. When your team wins, it is thanks to you. If the team looses, it is because of others. 3. Get a reason to award your friends, and a pretext to punish your enemies. 4. Even good things have negative side effects. Moreover, negative things have positive side effects. 5. Don’t play by others’ rules. Build your own rules that allow you to win. If you still don’t w...

A trebuit să prestez, în lagăr cât şi-n exil, pentru a supravieţui, munci din cele mai diverse: de la măturător, zugrav, muncitor necalificat în construcţii, traducător, ghid, până la inginer şi profesor universitar. Paginile acestea cuprind însemnări răzleţe, cotidiene, prinse din mers, reflectând diferenţe specifice între culturi, limbi sau popoare - şi tran...

Maximus in Minimis : Aphlorisms in Unistiches

By: Florentin Smarandache

Etymologically, aphorism + floral = aph(L)orism, which is a short reflection written on a floral design, or a short poetry accompanied by an artistic background. They are colorful contemplations. Maximus in minimis (Lat.) means very much in very little [max in min], or condensed thought, or ideating essence. They are actually maxims, adages, sayings mostly in one line (uni-stich) with a title, as a metaphoric statement, a breathing momentum that oils our soul.

Nonchalantly : The wind with its mantle steps lightly. Skin Condition : The Sun has spots too. At what time? When it rains, God cries. Atmosphere : Blue, as the sky dirtied by clouds. Bright : A balcony full of Sun. Natural disaster : The swans look drunk on the fetid lake. Surprisingly : The crow is a beautiful black. Elegant woman : A bird high on her legs. Most powerful chess piece : You are a queen but only in the dark. Medicinal plant : You’re a flower but ...
