Moral Truths



Philosophical logic[edit]

Request article of 'Implicit Premises, also apparently refered to as Suppressed Premises' Which is arguments/syllogisms based on presupposed premises not mentioned.

  • Appeal to classical allusions
  • Asserting an alternative
  • Axiometry Nathan Coppedge's systematic method of parsing categories, often using opposites. Important precedents for the method are Hegel's category square, Venn Diagrams, literary analogies, Novalis' category distinctions from Notes for a Romantic Encyclopaedia, and Sheldon's dialectic of opposites. The method also has an important basis in Kant's categorical imperative, and Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Coppedge occurs in a position that is reacting against the linguistic turn, but also embracing it. Earlier thinkers failed to truly realize that math and language could co-exist. In one of Coppedge's projects he calls this 'the qualific science'. His view is that properties that do not have qualities are irrational, because they cannot be perceived. Coppedge's categorical deduction method, radically different from syllogisms, is the primary example of the method. Axiometry is not to be confused with Axonometric projection or Axiology), which are both very different
  • B. R. A. I. N. Information gathering technique for informed decision making primarily in childbirth, acronym of Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Intuition, Need Time. Or B. R. A. I. N. E. D. Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Intuition, Nothing, Evaluate, Decide.
  • Categorical Deduction Introduced by Nathan Coppedge in 2013, it bears some resemblance to a truth table, but is meant to be interpreted coherently. It is as opposed to earlier forms such as Categorical syllogism, Categorical imperative, and standard Analogy. The method is unconventional in that it uses a bounded Cartesian coordinate system, reading circularly and linearly. In a quadra format it takes the form of four opposite categories (two polar opposite pairs) arranged in the strict form AB:CD and AD:CB (this can also be expressed as 'AB-CD and AD-CB' or 'A-B :: C-D and A-D :: C-B). The system can be used to bridge knowledge gaps and solve difficult problems.
  • Causal lever(s) technical term (or term-of-art) commonly used in philosophical discourse to indicate that the explanation of the mechanism that lead to the result (or considerations in a thought experiment) depend heavily on purely contingent facts (not necessary facts); that is, the explanation (or consideration) is historical or, more importantly, based on CONTINGENCY and is not purely nomological (law-based); potentially there could be several if-then's (the causal levers) THAT COULD HAVE BEEN OTHERWISE that comprise the bulk of the explanation (along with principles [usually so obvious that they're not important to discuss] about how the world works); a common phrase (clause) one may find is "... if the causal levers were such that ..."
  • Coherent Logic Nathan Larkin Coppedge introduces primarily diagrammatic methods and means of deductions as a way of objectifying knowledge and standardizing correspondence with other types of systems. Paraphrased Source: The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit (CreateSpace Independent Publishing, 2014).
  • Common thread reasoning
  • Conjunctive forks
  • Converting a conditional
  • Doctrine of Unexpected Consequences
  • Double-paradox Nathan Coppedge defines a paroxysm as a double-paradox, a paradox used as a solution to a paradox. This requires reversing all the terms, but also requires that the initial terms form a sufficient definition of a paradoxical problem. See Coppedge describes it in a paper called Paroxysm Solution to All Paradoxes. "Paroxysm" is also the name of a book of interviews with the French philosopher Jean Baudrillard (Verso, 1998), which may have inspired Coppedge's new definition
  • Equivocity
    • Perhaps what is meant is amphiboly
    • Add to wiktionary quality or state of equivocation
  • Exponential knowledge The method of Categorical Deduction popularized at knowledge-oriented websites in 2013 by Nathan Coppedge proposes a solution to the problems of Information based complexity known as the curse of dimensionality common in disciplines such as Economics and Mathematics. The paradox of the curse of dimensionality: Coppedge proposes that exponential knowledge has the opposite effect of complexity, which he terms "perfection," with the implication that it may ironically be perfection and not complexity which creates information overload.
  • Fallacy of biased generalization
  • Fallacies of distraction
  • Fallacies of explanation
  • Fallacy of personal preference assumptions
  • Fallacy of quantificational logic
  • Fallacy of reverse causation
  • Fallacy of the alternative syllogism
  • Fallacy of the disjunctive syllogism
  • Fallacy of the propositional logic
  • Feature logic May describe grammatic and syntactic choice in natural language.
  • Free time (fallacy)
  • Futurist extrapolation

Mathematical logic[edit]


request new article on "scientific atheism"


The view of the world of the antimetaphysical. An atheist might believe in magical thinking, or non analytical theories that don't imply the scientificmethod. An antimetaphysical is always an atheist but an atheist is not always antimetaphysical. An antimetaphysical[1] cannot be agnostic, for agnostics are or may be open to metaphysics.

  • I know of this biased, poorly-written site. It is an ancient symbol from Le Dragon Rouge tome associated with magic. It's also the topic of numerous opera/black metal bands. Apart from that, I can't find anything, least of all a reputable source.
