People used to believe truth existed as a provable concept. We now accept we can disprove things, and what we know is approximate.
Once you accept the pragmatic, this works, it has consequences that are significant to take into account, one has the basis for calling this truth.
Science works like this, but philosophy seems overcome with cynicism where the worst case scenario is accepted as if it is reality, when reality is just an acceptance everything is a pragmatic compromise. We live each day on this basis, go to school, do business, trade, work etc.
So rather than let our centres of existence be our guide, it seems without a logical framework of existence, everything must just be rejected and replaced with chaos and chance. Our very hearts declare this is not who we are, but why do we so easily abandon care and purpose for chaos?
The ironic thing for a board that suggests opinions are not the goal only facts and expert insight, the fact being made here is, is this actually possible in the final analysis. If the fact it is not, this is not an opinion it is a fact. In other words we are limited by our own existence, and must rely on assumptions and compromises to function.
Is it possible that being definitive in philosophy is what people want to claim, rather than philosophy being the language of what is knowable through suggestion and discussion. Has science become the new belief in absolutes, scientific ones, as if science through empirical experiments is the only why to define our world?
