Arguments in Indian Philosophy | 14:00 | Online via Zoom
Last week we looked at Theories of Reality, and the arguments used to claim that all reality must be one fundamentally unified form of Being....
This week we'll see how Indian Theories of Identity responded to the Ship of Theseus problem (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus) and tried out some REALLY radical solutions (could I really be one with everything I have ever been, or even everything that interacts with me?).
We'll also do a fly-by of India's version of Descartes' 'I Think Therefore I Am', looking at a transcendental argument that my own consciousness is the one thing that is truly real.. leading to an interesting version of subjective idealism
