Lately, I have been taking these silly quizzes on Facebook (shameless plug w/o compensation) - why because they are entertaining and yes they give me a secret thrill of finding out something I feel I can learn about myself. Okay finding out that I will die trying to save someone life was a bit much, but it was fun to think that someone could come up with a quiz that would actually answer such a morbid question. Anyway, my most recent quiz was a surprise; well actually the last two. What artist are you resulted in "Picasso" and although the explanation was correct, I thought myself to be more of a Klimt or Mondrian - two very opposing styles.
- Although all knowledge begins with experience, it does not all arise out of experience.
- Knowledge of an orderly world is made possible through the complementary activities of the senses and the mind.
- The matter of our experience is due to our senses and its form is contributed by the mind.
- The world we know is a phenomenal world; we have no knowledge of things-in-themselves.
- The only thing good without qualification is a good will.
- One ought to act only according to a principle of action that can be universalized.
- One ought to treat all rational beings as ends in themselves and never merely as means.
- The categorical imperative must be distinguished from hypothetical imperatives; the commands of the former are unexceptionable, but those of the latter are exceptionable.
- The autonomy of the self-legislating will is the basis of human dignity.
- Belief in God is a postulate of practical reason.
Quite a list to review and digest but do take a minute to ponder - you may surprise yourself by the thoughts that evolve.
