PHI 105 Week 2 Week 2 Discussion Question 1 All four philosophers had interesting insight although it is apparent that some of these philosophers were more in uenced by personal experience I would have to say that my views are closest to those of David Hume Hume39s idea to reject all belief and reasoning and to accept no opinion as more probable than another makes sense to me I find Hume39s declaration that a true skeptic will always doubt their own doubts to be right on Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 145 I find his ideas to be very close to those of Rene39 Descartes who also believed that truths could be discovered with skepticism and by doubting everything p 108 I can relate to the ideas of both philosophers because I question many things As I stated in discussion question 1 my friends call me an overthinker because I question everything and ponder on subjects that rarely even pop into their heads I know that most of my beliefs stem from personal experience so why wouldn39t I doubt those beliefs as well If I believe in something then it is my nature to also question it I also agree with Hume39s concept suggesting that our ideas come from personal experience His assumption 2 quotfactual claims can be established only by observation or by causal inference from what is observedquot seems very logical to me p 140 I interpret this assumption to mean that you should not claim something as fact until you have observed and researched it for yourself Hume39s ideas on cause and effect really made me think Just because a cue ball hits an eight ball does that mean that you perceived this cause and effect You would think so because you witnessed it but Hume39s disagreed saying that you may have seen the cue ball hit the eight ball but you did not actually perceive the cue ball making the eight ball move p 144 I liked that idea it baf es me to imagine where some of these philosophers got their ideas More than anything I think that doubt is the most important facet of the philosophical process
