Reflection on Observations upon Experimental Philosophy Section 1-3 Of Humane Sense and Perception.

Observations upon Experimental Philosophy

      The experimental philosophy of humane sense and perception exhibit some discourse. It is based on the five exterior senses of human. It is interesting how these senses are ignorant of each other. No sense feels what the other sense feels. Although these senses exhibit this kind of ignorance, it is astonishing because each is perfectly knowledgeable as the other part. The tongue is as knowing as the nose. Each sense has a variety of knowledge and perceptions corresponding to the number of objects that they perceive. These senses exhibit different degrees concerning particular objects. Some people’ s perception towards taste, sight, smell, hearing or touch is quicker to some objects compared to others. This is dependent on the perfection or imperfection, curiosity or purity of the physical figurative gestures of each sense or maybe according to the appearance of each object to each sense. In this philosophy, there is a purer and subtiler aspect of human beings known as rational perception. The rational perceptive is the best informer and reformer of every sensitive perception. It is considered as the wisest and most prudent part of nature. Whereas the sensitive perception is ignorant, the rational perception supplies.

                                                    Of Art, and Experimental Philosophy

      Experimental philosophy seeks to outdo the speculative part since many experiments result from speculations. Some people think that through art they can redeem their imperfection they have caused themselves through negligence and self-indulgence, and their intentional desertion of rules of nature. Art cannot not inform us of the small parts of nature since it is infinite by itself. As seen from humane sense and perception, it is clear that human beings have two perceptions: rational and the sensitive perception, although this is the case it is also important to know that each creature or perception has some smaller perceptions embedded into it of which it doesn’t know that they exist and this causes errors in perceptions. It is believed that the errors in humane actions is caused either by narrowness of our senses, aberration of our memory or incarceration of our understanding. real, mechanical and experimental philosophy can be a good remedy to these problems since it has a lot of advantages over the discourse and disputation philosophy. The man cannot have power over nature because it is the nature that moulds the man since man is just a small part of nature and his powers are actions of nature and this means that at no time will a man have absolute power over nature.

                            Of Micrography, and of Magnifying and Multiplying Glasses.

     According to the philosophy of micrography, and of magnifying and multiplying glasses, the more we magnify the art, the more it seems to misshapen from its natural appearance. This does not mean that there is no glass that does not represent the real picture of an object, only that in magnification and multiplication at times a false picture of the exterior object is shown. objects will appear in different shapes and figures according to how they reflect and refract light and may not represent what they are in reality. This philosophy ponders those who invented the microscopes for they intoxicated the brains of a man and made their actions of the body as phenomena. It would be better if the inventor of these arts did something better to improve the human life rather than do this harm to them.
