Could ChatGPT etcetera undermine community by making statements less significant for us?

Could ChatGPT etcetera undermine community by making statements less significant for us?

If a few people pass off AI answers as their own, it is bound to make people more sceptical. But the quality of the answer is the main thing. There are two risks to SE, I think:- If the answers get ...

Does anyone claim freedom toward death is not for me, but for others?

There's a helpful question here on the notion of "freedom toward death" (Can "freedom toward death" have 'freedom' translated out of it?). For this question, I find the ...

Could ChatGPT etcetera undermine community by making statements less significant for us?

Excellent question. But, I think you're looking at it the wrong way. If you view philosophy and language to be a tool that helps us to model reality, then what you are after is the best model you can ...

Could ChatGPT etcetera undermine community by making statements less significant for us?

The problem, in me humble opinion, lies elsewhere ... we're barking up the wrong tree. I'm not as worried about ChatGPT's prowess with words but with the rather disturbing ease with which ...

Did Adorno retain anything from Heidegger's Being and Time?

Asking about "anything" is rather vague especially in this case - Adorno and Heidegger share too many things: both wrested with Hegel, both had interests in aesthetics and despised postivism and that ...

Can we really "sympathise" with someone who really has tried to do the right thing, yet still think they are inauthentic?

Yes, we can sympathize with someone who did something we disagree with. Suppose someone makes a math mistake. Everybody has made math mistakes; it is easy to sympathize with the person who has made ...

Could ChatGPT etcetera undermine community by making statements less significant for us?

Is there a traditional concept for virtues that inform our ideas of what we can know?

The Aristotelian 'intellectual virtues' - aretai dianoetikai - of Nicomachean Ethics (NE), VI.3 would be my first port of call. Aristotle enumerates and specifies in NE III-V a range of moral virtues ...

Does anyone say that for some things to be fake just means that those things are not good?

I don't think 'sweeping generalization' is involved because the question is indexed only to 'some things' and asks whether for some things to be fake is for them to be not good. A fake Vermeer (...

Authenticity in philosophy is not generally about cultural expressions, but about being true to yourself, about acting in ways that relate authentically to who you are. I argue wisdom is about a ...

Is my authenticity or inauthenticity anything to do with you?

If my previous answer sounded too flippant, it's because the discussion of 'authenticity' in the context of cultural appropriation (and beyond) is one I personally consider to be very complex, if we ...

How is Authenticity affected by external influences?

Authenticity means you should do things for reasons that make sense to you, as an individual, and not just because you're being socially pressured to do those things. Change only if you are persuaded ...
