Agreement And Disagreement In Belief And Attitude

After understanding the above, we can move on to the second part of this article. I suggest that we define consistency and disagreement by analogy with the words defined above. This means that agreeing on something with someone means believing something that the other thinks. To disagree with someone about something is to believe the negation of what the other person believes. Note that the usual use of “do not accept” is simply not to believe something that the other person believes. I suggest that if you want to say that you don`t believe what it is, what the other person believes, you should say, “I don`t agree.” If you accept this redefinition in the context of philosophy, you should see that the dichotomy between agreement and contradiction is false. It is possible to have no opinion at all on something. Indeed, an over-reliance on emotionally charged language can give the impression of disagreement between parties that do not differ at all from the facts, and it can just as easily mask material quarrels as emotional concordance. Since the degrees of agreement in faith and attitude are independent of each other, here are four possible combinations: I am not addressing an advanced theory of how people believe things. I only address the contrast between the belief in something and the infidelity of something. The confusion lies not in the word “faith,” but in the word “disbelief.” Some take the “unbeliever” as a simple lack of faith in something.

Others take the “unbeliever” as faith in the negation of something. It is the latter meaning that is normally targeted in the philosophical context. If we start from the normal meaning of “faith” and the second meaning of “unbelief,” we should be able to see that this is an erroneous dichotomy; We don`t believe anything and we don`t believe in anything. There is a third option, that is, you have absolutely no faith in the question.1 Here is a table that shows trichotomy as well as a symbolic logical representation of the options: I suggest that for reasons of clarity, you should use “I believe something” to say the first line, “I have no opinion on something”, To talk about the second line. and “I don`t believe in anything” to talk about the third row. To think of a lack of faith in something, I suggest using the phrase “I don`t have faith in something.” Avoid using the phrase “I don`t think something” because it is ambiguous.
