Questions & Answers

Q: How does God's subjective perception of the world work in Berkeley's system?

It is an interesting and complex question. If God is omniscient, does He see everyone's perspective, including contradictory ones? The answer remains unknown, but it raises thought-provoking ideas about perception and the nature of God.

Q: What is the difference between Berkeley's subjective reality and Kant's phenomenal world?

According to Berkeley, the world exists within our minds, while Kant believed in the existence of a numeral world beyond human perception. While the two concepts differ, Berkeley's ideas can still provide insights into perception.

Q: Why did the video on John Locke and property attract attention from white supremacists?

The video explored how Locke's ideas were used to support colonialism, which challenged the prevailing narrative. Any work that challenges white supremacist ideals is likely to provoke a response.

Q: How do Rousseau's ideas about the state of nature differ from Locke's?

Rousseau and Locke have differing conceptions of the state of nature. While the video may have oversimplified their views, it is acknowledged that further exploration of Rousseau's ideas is warranted.
