Dueling Egos -- or Ergos

"I think, therefore I am." -- Descartes
"I think, therefore matter is capable of thought." -- Hobbes

I'm a huge fan of Descartes so I stick with him on this one. I like the idea that matter is a concept.

I need to comment here more!

Nice to see you again. I hope I can give you material worthy of continued comment.

Are you a mind-body dualist, as they say in the textbooks?

Gopher said...

I'm definitely a mind-body dualist.

Your material keeps me reading, I just find it hard to get time to write here.

I might do a Philosophy degree soon which would mean I could consider this an educational asset and therefore a valueable use of my time.

Nature's Rebel said...

That is highly flattering.
