Sophie's world chapter 21,22, and 23
Alberto now talks about Hume who was an empiricist. Sophie becomes tired and annoyed of hearing about most Philosophers being men and not women and not talking about women relater things such as children or pregnancy. But unlike other Philosophers in the book, Hume did experiments involving young children growing up. Hume also believed for a person's ego to change just as their personality (I am not the same as I was a day ago). This analysis was similar to Buddha's analysis. Hume argued that people are used to seeing things happen over and over because they have experienced it happen every time unlike children, who haven't been taught yet how to think in that way and are therefore more open minded. Hume also argued that morality was not the reason but the emotional feeling of the person. For example, a person will have the reason to help a person in danger is their choice depending on their emotion. After this lesson Sophie and Alberto witness a plane fly by with a banner wishing a happy birthday to Hilde. Their lesson continues after that occurrence about Berkeley who was an empiricist and believed that our bodies are just illusions as well as time and space which means that a week to us is not a week to God. After this talk, Sophie switches the topic to Hilde and her father. Alberto explains that Hilde's father is a God and Hilde is an angel. Sophie is left confused and comes back home telling her mom that it was as a bad dream.
The next chapter begins with Hilde waking up on her 15th birthday. Hilde has long blond hair with green eyes which is similar to how Sophie looks. Hilde's father is expected to come home in about a week but he still sends Hilde her present, a large binder with a story inside called Sophie's World. The story is inside of a story and talks about what happened in Sophie in the beginning to the middle of Sophie's World. Hilde becomes addicted to the story and doesn't stop reading even when Hilde's mother came in with her birthday breakfast. As Hilde reads about the part where Sophie finds Hilde's cuffix, Hilde goes to check whether she has it or not, and finds that she lost it a while ago. By the end of Hilde's reading, she starts to realize that Sophie may actually exist in the world.
Sorry to say Sophie, but men had more power in the Greek times... Now can we talk about Hume?
Why are there no women as Philosophers? It's making me triggered since I am a women.
Hume was also a kind of janitor, cleaning up the middle ages Philosophy.
To Hume, children were more open-minded
Hume focused on experiments on children and how they grow up.
To Hume, angels were a kind of delusional idea of mixing humans with the wings of a bird.
What a "Gate-crasher"
people don't know more about the world than what they can perceive themselves.
Our bodies are illusions
God caused everything physical in the world.
He extended Locke's ideas further.
Poor Sophie, she is so confused, I just want to explain it all...
Could Sophie exist?
