PL105 In Search of the Good: An Introduction to Ethics.
There are an infinity of machines which are completely equivalent to the universal Turing machine, and hence can emulate any other machine. Dozens of these machines have been described in the technical computer literature, 27 but here I will mention only two: the billiard ball computer and the Game of Life.
Prior to the nineteenth century, those who are now regarded as scientists were referred to as natural philosophers. With empiricism, science was claimed to be a superior form of knowledge to philosophy, and natural philosophy was marginalized. This claim for science was challenged by defenders of natural philosophy, and this debate has continued up to the present.
The forces of infinity move in mysterious ways. John Hawthorne has re- cently revisited Benardete's puzzle and argued that no such dark saying is needed in order to understand the before-effect.
Read theologically, Plato’s Symposium is an exercise in doxology: how Eros is to be praised. Pausanias observes that, since Eros is not one, a unitary praise will be inadequate. Proposing a focus on praxis, he classifies erotic praxes, and praises one, in a synthesis of contemporary convention, sophistic rationality, social responsibility and polytheistic fidelity.

Abstract. This thesis is an original contribution to critical international relations theory. Responding to Hartmut Behr's call for the development of more universalistic trajectories of ontological inquiry for contemporary (global) politics and ethics, our original contribution is to establish a 'critical' approach to international theory on a more universalistic meta-theoretical foundation.
