This is a companion thread to “Level 1 Philosophicum”. Anything that is not a topic request goes over there.
Any ideas for the next discussion topic of the philosophicum can go here. We will have a vote every month on the next topic. (
The idea behind the Level1 philosophicum is to discuss ideas and topics of philosophy (in a wider sense) like nature, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. The idea behind this thread originated from a discussion in the lounge started by @akaiotak and @tsk about the nature of time and whether it is real. Further example topics would be
- What is the meaning of life?
- Is technological progress a net positive for humanity?
- When is something “real”?
- Is Occam’s Razor a universally good heuristic in science?
- Was Thanos right?
Add as much detail to your topic as you think is needed but also have one headline.
