Ethical and philosophical doctrine of John Locke

LockeThe philosophy of John Locke, as we see from his work “Essay Concerning Human Understanding“, which is completely impregnated certain advantages and disadvantages. One second and equally useful, such flaws are only theoretical side. It is always prudent and better abandon logic, it becomes paradoxical. Philosopher declares general principles that the reader will easily imagine that can lead to amazing performances; but whenever there are strange event, it seems they are about to appear, Locke tactfully derived on their driving.

Typical exclusivity John Locke, which applies to all liberal direction – is the lack of dogmatism. Attestation of its existence, the existence of God and the truth of mathematics – those of the few irrefutable truths that Locke received from their predecessors. No matter how different his theory of theories predecessors, but in it he inclined to hold that the truth is difficult, but a man of understanding will adhere to their views and beliefs while maintaining some degree of doubt.

Intuitive knowledge philosopher understands as well as Descartes. He said that the demonstrative knowledge – corresponds deductive knowledge in the philosophy of Descartes – also known term that means the same thing (Locke demonstrate the same thing, that deduction Descartes). Carnal knowledge of a similar Descarte’s philosophy: when the philosopher says about his attestation the existence of the external world – it just implies Locke during carnal knowledge. A personal teachings, is intuitive knowledge after demonstrative, and least accurate – carnal knowledge.

All these problems philosopher ponders the fourth part of the work “Experience …”. It has a real ontological character, just as Locke describes it all their reflections on the problem with which Descartes started his way in philosophy. And Locke, in other words, at the end discusses the degree of reliability of our awareness of the existence of the human soul, world and God.

We not directly a material thing can not accept: We accept your ideas and more. The ideas we have caused certain things to exist we must make certain result. Indeed, in principle it can be and dreams – all that we see – can be called directly by God. Here with what we are seeing this world, he lives independently from men, first; second, it dictated by very similar things – those things that we see constantly. In any case, they do not (in true things) different colors and more.

Descartes argued the material life of the universe, away from the understanding of the justice of God. And for John Locke is much metaphysical argument, so it generally does not prove life of the world. Philosopher refers to this more skeptical than Descartes.

In general, a number of issues he holds a skeptical stance – as the media, for example, psyche (or no substantiality substantiality) – so here: Life outside world probative. Our personal life, we understand the soul of intuition – this insight is obvious reliably. The life of God can strictly prove, says John Locke. As a demonstration – the highest degree bring.

In fact, he reassures us, because the belief in the existence of the external world and so many strong, so much evidence is required. But in reality, says the philosopher, nothing will change. It seems paradoxical view.
The main intention of John Locke – defining sources of ideas and knowledge types, types of probability that originate from the comparison, the connection or disconnection of certain ideas. When the idea of a philosopher as any object of speculation. The arguments he sees quite in Cartesian sense, as the thought of something.

The idea – an object of speculation, and speculation – it’s just mental act that has consciousness.

Consciousness can work with non-concepts. Now, you hear, you comprehend, watch a subject that to you – no matter what it is; you comprehend the subject – a show of thinking that is embodied in a sense, at some point. Thinking has nothing at all to do with concepts. Thinking – every act of thought, and thought is not necessarily conceptualized. To certain concepts is relevant only Robo brain.

Also, like Descartes, John Locke disagrees with the unconscious perception – because it combines consciousness of thinking; unconscious ideas, to be exact. Nothing. Soul absolutely riddled consciousness.

Thus, negative or restrictive – result the study of perception will be that not all questions – simple questions of metaphysics – are human appreciation. … Why do we – have to understand it clearly – why take on the study of the soul, for the soul of study skills? How important is this? Of course you can answer this question, it is an end in itself – it is true, no need to look for some other benefit; it just by itself matter. But there is also external benefits.

Later, as we discuss how to construct our knowledge, we automatically draw around some edges, for which our capabilities are not able to make their way – is so restrictive call task.
