Schenck philosophy #1a: the one exception: I think, therefore, something exists. (cf. Descartes)
Something exists because I think!!!
Ideas create realities, if they are implemented by planning...but not all ideas will succeed, depending on "getting others" to buy into the idea, others to implement the idea, and successful problem solving...
Ideas do create realities, but even moreso, realities create ideas!
"Experimental theology", you mean? or that our financial crisis is pushing us to think of ways to solve that problem? or what?
Brain stimulation through experience, is THAT what you mean by realities producing ideas???Empiricism, through using "the human brain" and lives for experimentation?
I would agree that past experience does play a part in present interpretation, whenever there are situations where there is little or no transparency. Has one been taught through their experiences that "life and people are trustworthy", or not? That depends on how the person was parented, as well as life experiences overall.These early experiences are personal understandings about "self", and others, and are not easily overcome, esp. if there is a breach of trust. It becomes hard to overcome.Then, it becomes a matter of personal choice whether one chooses to believe in some "good purpose, plan, or over-arching scheme", such as Christian theology would have one to believe!How does one understand life? Obviously, we all use reason. But, where and how we use reason is dependent on many factors, that must not be pre-determined IF we want to continue to be a free society!!!
"The rule of law" is what maintains a society where trust can abound, because one knows what one can expect. When laws are undermined, it leaves one anxious and uncertain about what to expect and this uncertainty is filled in by one's past experiences. This is why "order" is important, but "order" must not be so over-riding of "personal tastes, or values" that it leaves no room to differ! Business ethics as well as government officials should know their "place" regarding thier limitations; "A private individual may do anything except that which is legally forbidden; a government official may do nothing except that which is legally permitted.“The Nature of Government,” Capitalism: The Unknown Idea
