Chapter 14

Materialism is a branch of monism. Materialists believe that everything is one, all is the same. Everything is matter physical things only. Everything has no mind, no soul, nor spirit. The brain chemistry argument for materialism argues that with more knowledge of the brain functions, it’s discovered that the brain is just  electrochemical systems. The brain is only an electrochemical system because materials can influence it.

Ramachandran gave three examples of illness which could be use to support the brain chemistry arguments. The three examples are Capgras syndrome, Phantom Limb Pain, and Synesthesia.

Capgras Syndrome. People who have capgras syndrome imagine other people and objects as having doubles. Ramachandran said that when someone’s brain is injured then she might not be able to remember faces but she will still recognize their sound. This supports the brain chemistry argument that brain can be influence people’s brains

Phantom Limb Pain. To heal a person illness or pain, one way is by fooling the brain that it is fine and healed. So if the brain is able to be fooled to believe that’s it is healed then it supports the the brain chemistry argument. The brain is just having chemical reaction so it can influence people’s brain.

Synesthesia. People who have synesthesia will see or recognize colors as numbers. This supports the brain chemistry argument that people recognize things by the brain and nothing relate to the mind at all.

Milgram Experiment

Agency theory states that a free act is caused by an agent.Agent is a person or an intelligent doer who possesses the capacity of volition. According to Agency theory freewill is an event with a cause but the cause is not from inner state but it is caused by an agent. Agent theorist believe that the Principal of Universal Causality is partly true and partly false. The true part is that every event has a cause which according to agent theorist is the agent. The false part is that every event stands in casual chain with very long history.

In the video ‘Milgram Obedience Study’, 40 people were doing an experiment.The person has to ask questions to the person in the next room. If that person answer the question incorrectly then he will be shock with a device. This device has a level of voltage. If the person keeps getting the wrong answer then the person who ask the question would increase the level of voltage. It can be derives from the experiment that the person who is in control of the device hesitate to shock the other person as the voltage gets higher. In conclusion, according to the agent theory the man do it because the agent told him to and that’s a free will.

What would utilitarian think about school

School?
     Utilitarianism would not support people to go to school because of many reasons. The first reason is because it will bring students stress. Even though stress is not tangible but utilitarians do anything to avoid pain. The next reason utilitarians would not support going to school is because there are many costs of going to school yet the only tangible benefit is salary. Most benefits of going to school are ijtangible. Examples of benefit if choose to go to school are having friends and gain knowledge. The utilitarians would say that going to school would be too painful and wouldnt brin people happiness so the best thing to do is to avoid it. 

 In objection to utilitarianism, school would make the world a better place. By ignoring some pain like stress students would be much happier in the future. If kids go to school then they would get educated and that is more valuable compare to stress. Kids would alson get a good job in the future which would make them happy in the long run. Education would also help the society.
