Yeah but it was based in the copula of should ought implying an essence for morality thus making it universal. He didn't go into that in any detail he just assumed because it's a priori it is universal but Aristotle, along w many other philosophers, spoke about n+v and causes

If you look at the older memes you can see there was at least consistency in that the user base pretended to read with taste. Now the shitposting is banal and trite, even more so since /pol/tards left their containment board.

what's the syllogism

>> No.13256911

If universe's laws of logic precede man's laws of logic
P1: objective is a nature of (universal) laws of logic (metaphysical structure)
P2: metaphysical structures are adhered to by ethics
C: objectivity is a trait of ethics

Basic syllogism
For instance
Socrates is man
Man is mortal
Socrates is mortal

>> No.13256938

Now justify the stipulation of P2. :3 (I am the real catface poster). I agree with the conclusion, yet P2 is a solution that requires explanation further (and the more involved it gets, the more concrete and comprehensive the solution becomes).

I was thinking about this the other day, that every syllogism is derived from the first syllogism as well (which says something about Metaphysics). In his Prior Analytics, Aristotle goes over the only logically consistent three combinations of relations of things.

The first


the second


And the third


You get the second by reversing the place of the last two relations in the first, and you get the last by moving the first after the last two in the second. But the third is just the first in reverse, so how Aristotle proves the validity of many third syllogisms is simply by reducing them to the first.

All proceeds from initial logical intuition, and all is reducible to it as well. That much I see, :3

>> No.13256980

It does need an explanation

I like the syllogisms and I'm never going to remember this so I'll never be fluent in it:
Barbara celarent darii ferio baralipton
Celantes dabitis fapesmo frisesomorum;
Cesare campestres festino baroco; darapti
Felapton disamis datisi bocardo ferison.

I say ethics necessarily can only act in a metaphysical structure it knows (it's impossible to act outside what u know). Ethics necessarily is an adherence to what u believe to be true or the best or correct way forward.

I guess I should try and make a syllogism leading to that? Wat u think?

It would be ironic - and maybe also paradoxical - if Tao Te Ching were meant to be interpreted rationally. It is, however, an "arational" work that invites the reader to accept apparent contradictions and paradoxes as part of a larger mystery.

It is not an anti-intellectual principle as much as it is a detached observation about perception. Rationality is a narrow range of behaviors that comprise only a tiny slice of life - most states of consciousness are irrational, or have no need of rationality.

I'm on-board. With Lao Tzu, though, I believe both the writer and the practitioner are operating on a very inchoate level - the instant you try to judge or qualify the totality he describes with thought (aka intuit rationally) you have "lost the Tao." The Taoist believes the best sort of mind to be a blissful, before-the-Fall sort of one that just accepts whatever it receives through the senses: it does not qualify with thought, nor does it discern through observation (if that's possible for a human).

If you were Lao Tzu and saw a man walking on water, for example, you wouldn't permit your mind to scrap and revise the entire order of the world you've apprehended through rationality - instead, you'd just think "Huh, there's a guy walking on water. Neat." The very impulse to rationalize is what Lao Tzu seeks to slowly reduce in people.

/lit/ is for anons who realized that they can't really be talking about the purity of the white race and the degeneracy of SJWs if all they ever do is watch anime.
So they decided to force themselves to like reading the canon of Western Literature. The canon sucks, it's all old shit written by dudes who shat in a pot and fucked little boys. But it's the easiest part of "western civilization" to pretend to like.
So yeahh, /lit/ has pretty much always been majority dudes who would be much happier watching anime, but virtue signal by reading books they don't enjoy.
