Although trying a second time now, I learned I could click through the wikipedia ISBN link to a google books link that wasn’t on my first page of results on google.

He explicitly, right on page 2, places his paper in the analytic tradition and his responses as responses to the recent literature;

if you thought there was an obvious objection, so obvious that everyone involved must have missed out on the last hundred years of mathematics, that says more about your familiarity with the subject than it does theirs.

It says something about Feser that he would use enough of an example from the literature (which I have now read the original, although I haven’t read Ross yet) to be obtuse but not enough to be clear about the actual points (1) that you can define symbols to mean different things and (2)

that different humans infer from a finite number of examples and then come to rules that seem to agree with each other Somehow from this example he draws that determinate things must exist.

The correct opposite claim is “humans do a thing called adding that they appear to agree upon in these formal situations, and these informal ones, and it appears to have some relationship to other parts of the world”.

So I’m not bothered by the fact that I can’t be as certain that the rules of logic hold in reference to the physical world with respect to my arguments as I am certain that the rules of logic work in terms of purely formal manipulation.

The fact that we can do math and logic does not rely upon them having platonic form or perfection any more than the fact that doing calculations in Newtonian mechanics relies upon the physical world instantiating Newtonian mechanics.

OT125: Opentathlon Thread

I was sick of the social media idea of friendship, defined as likes or shares or “X knows the same 50 people you know.” So when my friend Kate suggested we start a game of Dungeons &

Dragons, I thought, “Yes, I’m going to get together with people face-to-face, without any hearting or retweeting, and we’re going to eat chips and fight those damn cultists who are trying to resurrect the evil, five-headed dragon queen Tiamat.” Until

But I am basically the target demographic for “Stranger Things.” Like the characters on that show, I played D&D in the 1980s with a group of geeky guys every day at lunch throughout the sixth grade, slaying vegepygmies in a crashed spaceship and meeting the great demon Lolth in her sticky transdimensional web. Kate

We were joined by seven other friends around my dining room table, eager to take on the roles of fighting monk, rogue, sorcerer, warlock, paladin, bard and cleric.

I was about to become an Aarakocra cleric, a bird person with a divine connection to nature who could call down lightning, raise winds, grow plants from the barren earth and heal the dying with a touch. But

surge of interest is no doubt also inspired by shows like “Stranger Things” and the D&D-esque world of “Game of Thrones.” We want to escape into fantasy worlds where we know who the bad guys are and our spells to banish evil actually work.
