Storyboard Text

  • Sophie was most definitely surprised by Alberto's meaning of first hand experience
  • Speaking of which there's on right there. Mr Rene Descartes
  • Remember Sophie, these philosophers are one of the most influential people our world has to know, so try not to argue too much
  • Ah yes, metaphysics and epistemology. Two of my most brilliant theories. My theory is that there are two substances that makeup two realities. One is the mind and the other being the body. The mind makes up a world filled with idealism and the body makes up the materialistic world
  • Mr Descartes God, Existence and Knowledge are..
  • Substances are independent and distinct. However, immaterial souls and the physical/material world are created and dependent on God for existence. 
  • One cannot arrive at certain knowledge if those conclusions are built on questionable premises or doubtful assumptions. 
  • Reasoning and logical explanations are the ways to acquire true knowledge
  • After spending time with Descartes and learning his philosophy, Alberto and Sophie decided to track and talk to John Locke
  • Blank Slate 
  • Blank Slate
  • Our mind starts off as "Tabula Rasa"
  • And is then filled with knowledge which acquired by simple ideas (grey, sour, big) and complex ideas, which are combinations of simple ideas (apple, respect).
  • But then how do you describe reality and what is real and what is not?
  • Firstly, primary qualities which are characteristics of weight, speed and time. Secondly, secondary qualities which are things like colour and taste
  • Anything in the world that exist, only exist because of the characteristics it is given. Materials or substances can be described using terms from two categories.
