Mind and Nature

explains how a mind, free of histories and traditions, can use nature to draw its own conclusions and develop relationships. Emerson looked to nature as a means for man to shed the ideals and traditions of the past and greet life with a new outlook.

Beautiful Mind

film “A Beautiful Mind” effectively portrays the life of a person living with schizophrenia and offers viewers several comments on the effects of mental illness without limiting the scope to simply this aspect.

Mind and Matrix

anything. For Neo's sake it helps him decide weather he is really in the matrix or not. In addition to foundationalism proving that knowledge is built up from what we are certain of, idealism plays an important role of arguing that all reality is in the mind. Descartes' argument for idealism explains how knowledge of reality is possible. He goes through the process of using an example like a pen and justifying its existence.
