Since Jon is tied up in discussion, I've taken the liberty of sharing his notes. I hope, of course, he doesn't mind. He sent them to me a day or two ago.

Thanks to all for the discussion--and to Jon for offering such thoughtful observations about Polanyi's lecture. I must be off. All the best.

And of course if existence itself is a good, then the Good is prior to the existence of living beings.

Any comments on “commitment to science” we are in a national dialogue about which political party is the party of “science” like science is just a focal fact about covid or global warming, etc. Science is a political club to justify forced conformity

as a scientist, any monkey can search for a vaccine or run a case controlled experiment. But new discovery like the doctors who discovered the a covid patient does better if you change their body position is a real discovery.

As well as discovering a way to use one ventilator to serve 4 patients is genius.

Those two discoveries I mentioned we done by ER physicians with the passion to find a fix where there is no fix available. The actually create something out of nothing.
Richard Moodey
01:32:14
These two discoveries bring out what I like to call the dialectic between pure and applied science. This is connected to the ambiguity of the word “problem.” A problem can be an unanswered question in the “pure science” sense, but also the practical problems of curing illnesses or building better mousetraps.

The existential commitments of Sartre and Heidegger are a lesson in contrast: Sartre to resisting the Nazis, and Heidegger to Nazism.
