In today's class we introduced the distinction between objective and subjective:
For example, Descartes believes the self is an objectively-existing thing (the soul,)
while Buddha believes the self is a subjective, imaginary idea (the "ego" or self-image).
Similarly, Socrates believes questions of good and bad have objectively-true right answers,
while David Hume claims that all of our beliefs about good and bad are subjective opinions.
Your goal for this post is to explain where you think we can draw the line between subjective and objective. Are all beliefs subjective, or are there objective truths (and maybe even objective answers about what is good)? Give an example to back this up. You should post a link to your example if possible. Try to get us thinking!
