Posted by on .

what is whole/part logic according to Socrates, and how does it differ from whole/moment logic?

I'm not sure if it is about that the whole needs parts or if the moment needs parts. Im confused.
If you can help thanks.

    After trying to read this about that subject

    I am even more confused than you are. I'm glad I never studied philosophy.

    Learning how to reason rationally and critically is a skill and I am glad that I have acquired these talents from studying philosophy. I roll my eyes at you, drwls, as I click Post Answer . . .

    It is profoundly to be wished that the acquired philosophy talent can be used to answer the question asked by Deen

    Good, Brandon, answer the question then. Show us your reasoning that you have acquired. I read Mad magazine to acquire my reasoning skills, and it has served me well. But I cant answer that question above, it makes no sense to me.

    drwls and bobpursley: I am merely countering what drwls said because it seemed like an attack on philosophy as a discipline. It is a worthy field even though it is challenging. How would reading Mad magazine do such a thing?! Even though I had never encountered material on this topic before now either, I felt that I should say something in defense of philosphy as a whole.
