Write and discuss these common items that philosophers agree on, even though they disagree with each other about their answers. Use internet. Please write very simple written. book name man computer ape, or angel?

1. Philosophers agree that things exist, including humans. Discuss what other things philosophers agree about when it comes to the existence of things. Do they agree that plants, animals, humans, angels, God exist? If the answer is “Yes” and “No” (This is the correct answer, for all philosophers do not agree that God exists. Obviously, not all people hold that God exists.), why do philosophers as philosophers accept together that some things exist and yet they deny in the beginning of their work that other things do exist. Why is it a problem that God is not known to exist in the beginning of philosophical study, for example , but the existence of plants, animals, human, minerals are accepted without question. Hint: Define the words, `obvious’, `immediate’, `mediate’, `hidden from consciousness’, `awareness’, `kinds of know ledges’, `self-evident’. I want the technical, philosophical meaning of these words that all philosophers would accept as they begin their work.

2. Why do all philosophers accept the view that we must begin with ACTIONS in order to know what the Nature, of anything is, including the nature of a human being. Explain in detail, that we know what a thing is by studying what a thing does. Hint: A thing does what it does because of what it is. Are the essences of things obvious, self-evident? Explain. Do we study all actions to know what something is? The answer is: NO. Why is the answer: “No?”

3. Philosophers accept: the Law of Contradiction (technically called the Law of Non-Contradiction), the Law of Parsimony, sometimes called the Law of Economy (Morgan’s Rule), and that we must begin our study with the MORE KNOWABLE and proceed to the LESS KNOWABLE. Explain what these items mean in the context of the course.

4. All philosophers accept QUANTITATIVE DIFFERENCES. Discuss what a quantitative difference is as opposed to a QUALITATIVE difference. What is a “degree difference”, a “difference of more/less”, “difference in amount” versus a “kind difference”, and “essential difference”, “type difference”. Do philosophers agree that an essential difference exists between humans and other things that obviously exist? The answer is: No. Why not?
