The importance of truth

The importance of truth Empty The importance of truth

Students often have to reflect on this topic
« The question of truth is a kind of convergence point for all philosophical questions. Remember that philosophy is the love and search for truth. Do not seek to minimise the value of truth, to relativise its importance »
And yet we are often tempted to claim that reality is relative to each of us, relative to each observer. I am thinking of Young's experience where the observer allows the physical world to exist. At the level of the infinitely small the particle is a wave of probabilities and only becomes a solid particle if it is observed. There is basically no objective truth. It depends on the way we look at it and yet we should not try to minimise the importance of truth. If in a society the leaders manipulate us and speak to our emotions and not to our intelligence, the whole society becomes intellectually poorer and more stupid.
Vaccination is not a civic act as some people would have us believe. It requires reflection. Everyone will find what is good for them and that is their right.

The importance of truth Empty The truth and the vaccine

PatrickB a écrit: The truth is that we are looking for a cure for a pandemic. The truth is that we are used to fighting a virus either by antiviral (AIDS and tritherapy) or by a vaccine (hepatitis B and vaccination). The truth is that the cure must not be worse than the disease (the theory of moods and bleeding). The truth is that this covid divides us into different risk groups (very old, overweight, diabetics, hypertensive). The truth is that this new vaccine will not have the same impact on everyone. The truth is that in a democratic society we have our freedom and the collective good has its imperatives. So with good independent free information intelligently debated we should be able to make a reasonable choice whether or not to get vaccinated without it being challenged or if it is questionable we should be able to make our case before independent people without a conflict of interest. The truth is that this is all complex. The truth is that we are forgetting some parameters: why did the epidemic happen? Why did it spread so quickly? Are we sure that countries are providing the data in all truth? You see how complex the Truth is. One thing is certain: we cannot continue as before and yet many people do not want to take any action to avoid changing their lives, their governance, and so on... In truth I tell you: who on earth is important, the human or the material? To be or to have? To appear or to be?
