This is an issue that was stumbled upon in both conceptualism and natural realism. This is because the definite problem of double existence is not in ontology but in defining how one predicate can characterize the concept in the mind and a natural property.

The problem of double existence for universals was determined by Aquinas (Wilkerson, 1995). Natural kinds are those that exist… Read More

Response to Obama policy Obama’s approach to foreign policy has over his tenure been criticized as progressively pragmatic

Response to Obama policy Obama’s approach to foreign policy has over his tenure been criticized as progressively pragmatic. I agree with the view that Obama’s policies indicate signs pragmatism. The recently signed Iran nuclear deal serves as the best indicator of Obama’s pragmatism and similarly, the handling of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process also confirms this view. However, I am also of the opinion that though a little pragmatic, Obama’s approach to foreign policy is highly justifiable. This is because overall the presidency is seen to operate in uniquely challenging times. Starting with global financial crises in 2008 and moving to a world with more sophisticated acts of terrorism would justify… Read More

Without money, everything would become more expensive

Without money, everything would become more expensive. This is a statement defined best by the case of Zimbabwe which reported hyperinflation to the tune of 79.6 billion percent by November 2008. The hyperinflation resulted in the government of the country seeking to fully phase out the use of the Zimbabwean dollar by the end of 2015 and in its place the country would use the US dollar and the South African rand. This resulted into a country without money that would lead to everything being expensive. The replacement of the Zimbabwean dollar with the US dollar resulted in a sharp shortage of the US dollar. This is because of the… Read More
