Argument and Logic CheckPoint On Rabbits and Motion The excerpt on rabbits and motion describes the reality is One theory of Zeno Parmenides most eminent student Zeno s first argument to his theory suggests that all things must pass through an infinite number of points to go from one place to another and that movement requires an immeasurable amount of movement therefore ruling out motion Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 28 Zeno s initial argument on rabbits and motion rules out the possibility of motion because of the elements of infinite space and time involved in the rabbit s movement The strength in Zeno s first argument is clear with the logic suggesting that the rabbit must reach several points when traveling from one place to another and that a specific amount of time is necessary to reach each point The weakness of the first argument is the idea that a thing moving from one place to another requires both an infinite amount of time and points to get from one place to the next Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 28 This does not sound logical because two points can be as close as two feet apart therefore infinite time and space should not be used in this argument when in fact travel between two points may require as little as one second Zeno s second argument to this theory uses the logic that for a thing to move from one place to another it must at each moment occupy a space equal to its own length The main point to this argument is that if an object at any time occupies a space equal to its own length it is at rest therefore ruling out motion Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 28 This argument does sound somewhat logical although the conclusion implying that the rabbit is at rest as it occupies this space contradicts the fact that the rabbit must move to get from point A to point B The strength in Zeno s second argument is that objects do occupy space equal to their length physics proves this concept The weakness in the second argument is basic Zeno implies that motion is disproved because any object that occupies a space equal to its length is truly at rest If this were true then what amount of space does an object occupy when moving A moving object does occupy space and its length certainly does not change when in motion The most critical contradiction to this argument is that an object is either in motion or not in motion it cannot be both Because the rabbit must move to get from point A to point B it is in motion If the rabbit is in motion it cannot be at rest therefore proving motion References Moore B N Bruder K 2008 Philosophy The Power of Ideas 7th ed New York McGraWHill
