Philosophy Series

In terms of what I believe the most likely to be true, I am a:

  • Hard determinist, meaning that free will is impossible and your choices are a result of some conbination of your nature and nurture
  • Eliminative materialist, meaning that, in particular, consciousness does not exist, and the term will be eventually eliminated as neuroscience progresses 1 2
  • Absurdist, meaning that you must awknowledge that there is no meaning or purpose to our lives and universe, but despite this, our biology demands we pursue it and believe in it
