The philosopher's guild covered severaltopics ranging from pascals wager to how all things can relate to philosophy.  I am missing my philosophy notebookat the moment so if anyone cares to add about our discussion please do, it escapes me for the moment.


  1. Yo guys!

    Discussion: Do you think Spinoza's proofs are a good way to discuss philosophy?

  2. Factual Question: Who believed that over a life each of us remain the same 'man'?- John Locke
    Discussion Question: do you believe that we stay the same person or that as we grow and life happens we become different people?

  4. Factual question: what philosopher believed that government's job is to protect life, liberty, and property

  5. Factual Question: Who wrote the Letter on Toleration? (John Locke)
    Discussion Question: Do you believe that a belief in a God makes one behave drastically different than one who does not believe? Morally speaking.

    Comment: I disagree with John Locke in that all knowledge comes from experience. There is a inherited knowledge that comes through as instincts.

      I would say simply believing in a God doesn't change the way you act, almost all of the world claims to believe in some sort of God. But actually following their teachings is what might set them apart.
