Approach to knowledge building through debate during the age of information

Image
Some thoughts about debating ideas in modern societies: In these days in which general information is becoming a commodity, the activity of discussing an idea within any context will only become a productive and enjoyable experience the day that we will re-learn and apply the old concepts about knowledge. In the Nicomachean Ethics, for example, Aristotle (384 /322) proposed three approaches to knowledge: The first one was coined as "Episteme" related to scientific knowledge and analytical rationality, which later derived in Epistemology, the study of knowledge. The second was defined as "Techné" which represents practical rationality or the craft developed by humans. This type of knowledge is pragmatic, variable and context-dependent. Nowadays is known as technique. The third one was called "Phronesis," a type of knowledge driven by human values, such as ethics and morality. In our days is known as subjective reasoning; the opinion of an indi

We all die in doubt

We all die in doubt, or at least, that's how it should be. The truth is not a static state; it's more like a path that we should embrace our whole life. We are in a continuous movement; and sometimes, when you seek the truth, you may become what you used to hate or fear, or even more, the notion of what is evil and what is not can change.  On this dynamic movement, I became what I used to fear.  Where am I now? What do I think?  Now, I appreciate the beauty of human systems. I've been able to cry in the Parthenon of pain seeing the pinnacle of a society destroyed, but also with joy seeing the beauty of places in the new Babylon. Beauty is not created in a day; humans aim to perfection when they build through generations.  I became a builder too. I believe that collective effort is the path of the light. Systems also should fail, they fail when they have to. Light and Darkness dance in a continuous movement and I am a builder not because I believe

Fear and life goals

I f you feel that the challenge of finding an activity that suits your expectations is perhaps one of the most difficult tasks that you’ve ever encountered, you are not alone; such dilemma is common for most of the people that are looking to have a meaningful life. No one can find the answer for you, but I may be able to help with an honest perspective about how I’ve being trying to get a solution for that problem, and it's related to overcoming my fears. To start, I've embraced the fact that not always I was looking for a response. In fact most of the times, I was immersed in mundane daily tasks until at some point bitter feelings came to my life to remind me that the clock is ticking. After some years, I’ve learned to accept such bitterness and even appreciate it, because it’s been a call from my soul for evaluating my present. As I suppose you’ll perceive, this is not something that happens just to you. The next thing that usually I do is to breathe until

A guide to having a life worth for living.

W e were born heroes and life is our quest. Within ourselves, it resides the call of adventure, no matter what kind of personality we have. But we refuse the call quite often pretending that is not there anymore. Our time passes between being bored earning money and getting excited spending it. Some moments, though, we commit to the quest again, then a force comes from our inner self, giving us several hints of what we should do. However, we do not understand such whispers, getting back to the cycle in which everyone is a victim of the system, their families, the past, the government or whatever excuse they can imprint in their heads looking for villains to blame for their inability to be truly happy. Hence, the clues inhabit in ourselves, so we have to learn how to understand the predestined aid. The first step is to gain mindfulness to take the control of our brain. This challenge is the first trial to overcome. We can do it through daily reflexion, psychologists, medit

Thoughts beyond the time of my Troll’s cycles.

T wo years had passed since I wrote my last thoughts in this blog when the beginning of the end started and the conclusion of all periods had begun, disrupting what I was abruptly and creating this new era through a predestined force of change that was superior to my awareness.  Six years ago, my blog came to life showing my necessity to express what I felt facing this life. It was a combination of reflexions about what I’ve learned thinking beyond the norm, my devilry that was fed by my inner rebellion and the dream that I never dreamed, the fantasy which has been part of me since I have memory. But always an action had been constant, I was looking for something and such exploration became so intense that made me built and destroy what I created towards finding that element. Until one day my objectivity ruled over everything else and I decided to be happy enjoying what I got. Maturity and stability were perfect excuses to do it. After all, I ended being like everyone else wi

El arte del engaño

  “ E l individuo ha luchado siempre para no ser absorbido por la tribu. Si lo intentas, a menudo estarás solo, y a veces asustado. Pero ningún precio es demasiado alto por el privilegio de ser uno mismo.” Nietzsche. Conspiración, palabra que atañe tantas teorías hoy en día, pero ninguna tomada de forma seria, simplemente porque conforme a nuestro indudable entendimiento, el cual está forjado bajo la verdad irrefutable, que proveniene del cascadeo de información de fuentes creadas por un selecto grupo  hacia todo el mundo, el que piensa distinto es un orate. Porque dudar… si lo emiten en el cuadrado brillante que tenemos en casa y lo publican con tinta elegante en un papel periódico; por seguro eso sería lo real. Engañar a toda una civilización suena imposible, sin embargo se puede dudar cuando grupos como el del señor Murdoch poseen una cantidad inmensa de canales de televisión, entretenimiento, publicaciones de libros y demás (clic aquí) , para colmo en extremo… influyent

La solución sencilla al apocalipsis financiero 2014

En la actualidad existe un gran debate sobre el estado actual económico mundial. Luego de la crisis del 2008 hay escepticismo sobre si el mundo terminó de recuperarse. La realidad es la siguiente: El Capitalismo llegó a su fin años atrás. Para que exista este sistema económico es necesario dinero (lógicamente), pero la realidad es que el mundo carece de capital. He aquí los hechos: 1) Nivel de endeudamiento de los Estados Unidos: Trillones + billones de dólares. (haga clic aquí) 2) Nivel de endeudamiento del mundo: Trillones de dólares+ muchos billones (haga clic aquí) Entonces, surgen dos preguntas: Fuente del capital circulante: El Fondo Monetario Internacional es la fuente principal de ingreso de los países desarrollados, los cuales hace tiempo no disponen de capital suficiente para afrontar sus gastos. Donde se encuentra el capital: Para eso le dejo a esta brillante niña Canadiense que nos explique en 6 minutos la verdad (clíc en el video)
