Antifoundationalism Old and New

The talk over foundationalism, the perspective that there exists a few safe beginning upon which to construct a approach of wisdom, seems to be to were resolved and the antifoundationalists have not less than quickly prevailed. From a firmly historic method, the booklet lines the foundationalism/antifoundationalism controversy within the paintings of many very important figures—Animaxander, Aristotle and Plato, Augustine, Descartes, Hegel and Nietzsche, Habermas and Chisholm, and others—throughout the heritage of philosophy.

Ludwig Wittgenstein--a cultural point of view : philosophy in the darkness of this time

Within the preface to his "Philosophical Investigations" Ludwig Wittgenstein expresses pessimism concerning the tradition of his time and doubts as to if his rules will be understood in one of these time: 'I cause them to public with uncertain emotions. it isn't very unlikely that it may fall to the lot of this paintings, in its poverty and within the darkness of this time, to deliver mild into one mind or one other - yet, after all, it's not likely'.

He rejects with indignation the morose view of the Gnostics (and later of the Manicheans) that the visible world was created by a wicked Demiurge and must be despised by every aspirant to true virtue. On the contrary, the bright beings that adorn the sky are wise and good, and such as to console the philosopher amid the welter of folly and disaster that was overtaking the Roman Empire. The medieval Christian cosmos, though less austere than that of the Manicheans, was shorn of some elements of poetic fancy that paganism had preserved to the end.

This has very odd results. Suppose, for instance, that you have a screen with a small slit, and you bombard it with particles; some of these will get through the slit. Suppose now you close the first slit and make a second; then some will get through the second slit. Now open both slits at once. You would think that the number getting through both slits would be the sum of the previous numbers, but this turns out not to be the case. The behaviour of the particles at one slit seems to be affected by the existence of the other slit.

I do not think, therefore, that the uncertainty principle has the kind of philosophical importance that is sometimes attributed to it. Quantum equations differ from those of classical physics in a very important respect, namely that they are not “linear”. This means that when you have discovered the effect of one cause alone, and then the effect of another cause alone, you cannot find the effect of both together by adding the two previous effects. This has very odd results. Suppose, for instance, that you have a screen with a small slit, and you bombard it with particles; some of these will get through the slit.
