Picture: Immanuel Kant and his shadow
Logic is about understanding reality in a non-contradictory way and how can we see things for what they are.
Topic: Wes Bertrand (Complete Liberty Podcast) joins me to discuss what he calls the fallacy to rule them all - the stolen concept.
"When modern philosophers declare that axioms are a matter of arbitrary choice, and proceed to choose complex, derivative concepts as the alleged axioms of their alleged reasoning, one can observe that their statements imply and depend on “existence,” “consciousness,” “identity,” which they profess to negate, but which are smuggled into their arguments in the form of unacknowledged, “stolen” concepts." -Ayn Rand, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology (p59–60)
