  1. The Inter Mind Model Is a Triplistic Model of the Mind by SteveKlinko in General Philosophy
    The Inter Mind Model is a Triplistic Model of the Mind. Some very interesting conclusions are realized using this Model. This concept has been posted before but I think with the addition of some very good introductory thoughts and some expanded argument discussions it is time to post again. Please g...
  2. Jordan Peterson and the Death of Civilized Political Discussion by BenMcLean in Philosophy of Politics and Law

For example, is the complex and subtle love experienced by intelligent humans, in some way a real expression of s...
