FQ) Who saw philosophy as a 'mirror of nature'? (Rorty)

  2. I'd probably take the red pill; finding out the truth is quite tempting.
    FQ: Where was Baruch Spinoza born? (Amsterdam)
    DQ: John Locke believed that personal identity is formed by concious memory. Therefore, most of us are not the people we were born as (because we can't remember) How much, if at all, does concious memory determine who we are?
