PHI 105 Week 2 Week 2 Discussion Question 2 Of the three early metaphysical ideas dualism materialism and idealism I find the most logic in dualism Dualism was basically invented by Plato and suggests that everything is either physical or mental and that many things such as human beings have both a physical and mental element Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 105 I find dualism to be the most logical because I have always had a strong feeling that all living things have both physical and mental spiritual attributes I also believe that these physical and mental attributes usually work together For example I always think about a speci c action before I physically carry it out The thought may only last for a split second but it is required to complete the action In our text dualism was described as quottoday39s common sensequot Moore amp Bruder 2008 p 106 Rene Descartes believed that truths could be discovered with skepticism and by doubting everything His quotdoubting methodologyquot was based upon doubting everything that he possibly could to achieve certainty which in turn would provide him with a criterion of truth p 108 I too am the type of thinker that questions things and concepts that many would not My friends call me an overthinker I can honestly relate to Descartes39 dream conjecture Who hasn39t wondered quotFor all I know I might now be dreamingquot I definitely have Ideas such as Descartes39 have helped me find the logic in dualism as opposed to trying to wrap my head around materialism or idealism I just cannot believe that only the physical or mental exist that does not seem possible to me
