SOC 310 notes through September 16 th Ontology: The study of what is. Being. Epistomology: What counts as knowledge? How do you know? Evaluation of Trigg Plato reading  Plato was concerned about relativism. If you leave everybody to do what they think is right, disasters may occur. o Hitler though he was right…  Skepticism: prove to me or show me that your way is right o Socrates failed at this and was accused of corrupting and was burned  Sophists.  This is all hugely problematic for Plato! It leads to a life of struggle between powers. We must remove those contentions. Pre-modern  Form  Atemporal  Transcendent/metaphysical  Immaterial Modern  No possibility of transcendent, but must all be physis (matter), nomos (cultural), temporal, substantial. People don’t just act out of self-interest. They do it out of the belief that their way is correct. How will you adjudicate cultural difference?  Gain access to knowledge of what really is-it will be atemporal, fixed, unchanging. Atemporal is more than temporal: real knowledge is grounded in the atemporal and that which does not change. Reason needs to govern all things-it is reason that gains access to the forms and transcendent and atemporal Platonic view of God-he wouldn’t have a body, passions, etc. because that would move him to the material and substance category. Human civilization is good at getting people to do what they normally wouldn’t do. Determined event  Pushed into  Necessity o Example: blinking  Uncontrollable  Materialistic causality  Less meaning Action  Choice  Possibility o Example: winking  Controllable  Meaning Individualistic  Thomas Hobbes: humans are atomistic  Atomism is ontological o It is what it is independent of anything outside of it. Context: culture, power, etc. Rational  Think through it: reflexivity  Instrumental: managing time  Value: “Do what is right, let the consequence follow” Nonrational  Habitual/routine  Affective
