The lord has spoken.
I am a lord, but only your lord.
So when it is convenient for you, Trixie, you become lord not - what is it lordess? lol
I have no lord. I serve no one except perhaps only that within myself which calls to me...my Self.
If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.
What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.
