Reason and Religious Beliefs 7.3
McShane claims that real science is when you haven’t got a hypothesis, but you have a puzzle. He mentions convenient symbols, e.g., K=CUE (knowledge = correctly understanding experience), that are helpful for identifying Plato’s Cave. He underscores the relationship between kindliness and understanding. Some of the questions raised in this session:
- Are ideas more real than what we see?
- Can a definition be seen?
- Is faith a conviction of friendliness?
- Is it possible to question one’s faith without doubting it?
