This community has been created to ensure that somewhere, somewhere on LJ, there will be a philosophy community where the moderators aren't paranoid lunatics (hi, unnamed525), aren't hypersensitive girliemen (hi, apperception) and don't have receding hairlines (hi, cabrutus).
This is the place where you get to actually discuss philosophy without fear from the moderators.
1. No unwarranted insults (ad hominems are perfectly fine - who are we, as moderators, to bias the epistemology of your arguments?). For example, consider this short radio play: Prima: Perhaps I don't delude myself into thinking that what people who have been corpses for thousands of years did is important enough to devote my academic career to.
Secunda: No, you just delude yourself into thinking that computer science degrees are an adequate subsitute for an epistemology class.
Here, we think that Secunda is doing a top job of giving Prima the whatfor.
However: Primus: Personally, I think that existence is a proper predicate but that's because I want to be able to distinguish between things which actually, really exist and things that I just thought up. Lamps exist; Square circles do not exist.
