The FR ( Flawed Reason ) Theory

Written by Dr Kedar Joshi, PBSSI

FR ( Flawed Reason ) theory is a theory that reason itself is ultimately flawed. That is, at some point Reason breaks down. It is not just a matter of human reason but Reason itself.

FR theory, at least at this stage, does not say that it is certain ( 100 % or 99.99...% takingrepparttar principle of Ďanything may be possible into account ) that Reason is flawed. Rather it is supposed to be probable ( consideringrepparttar 127611 secretive and awesome character ofrepparttar 127612 universe / reality andrepparttar 127613 trust in human abilities that something is seriously unlikely if possible at all ).

FR theory is inferred fromrepparttar 127614 problem of creation ( ofrepparttar 127615 ephemeral / non - eternal / in usual terms, material universe ) andrepparttar 127616 possibility that what seems to berepparttar 127617 eternal or logically necessary aspect ofrepparttar 127618 universe was also thoughtfully / orderly created ( for example,repparttar 127619 order and disorder amongst prime numbers could be a matter of creation ).

Superultramodern Scientism (SSism)

Written by Dr Kedar Joshi, PBSSI

Superultramodern Scientism (SSism) is Scientism of Superultramodern Science (SS). Without SSism, SS would be seen as a philosophy instead of science. SSism agrees withrepparttar definition of Science as a systematic body of knowledge. More systematic a body of knowledge isrepparttar 127610 more scientific it is.

SSism is essentially based on its critique of logical positivism as well as falsificationism andrepparttar 127611 principle of universal doubt. :

1. Critique of logical positivism -

Logical positivism is a doctrine that if some theory ( that is supposed to be speaking aboutrepparttar 127612 nature of physical /material reality ) is not verifiable then it is meaningless or absurd. SSism states thatrepparttar 127613 meaning of a theory has nothing to do with its verifiabitlity but ratherrepparttar 127614 nature of concepts it involves. ( This is axiomatic. )

2. Critique of logical falsificationism -

Logical falsificationism is a doctrine that if some theory ( that is supposed to be speaking aboutrepparttar 127615 nature of physical / material reality ) is not falsifiable then it is unscientific. Thus it is instead metaphysical, if at all meaningful. SSism states that falsifiability of a theory has nothing to do with its being scientific. (This is axiomatic.)
