Metaphysics is the attempt to say what reality is. Cosmology or how we think the most real things have come into being and ontology the study of what is. To me what is real the things you can touch, smell, see etc., but you also have things that you can’t see that is real. For example God is real; people believe that the earth is flat etc. We can’t see these things but we believe they are real. The physical, spiritual and psychological worlds are in twine with each other. First of all physical worlds known to humans through their five senses are complemented ...view middle of the document...
Epistemology is the theory of knowledge and people use it to find out what is true. For example science, which simply requires something to work with or be predicated/replicated but epistemology on the other hand, requires something to be knowledge or know it has to be true always and every ways.
First of all you must understand what ethic is. Ethic is moral principles or values governing an individual, group and a particular culture. The right thing to do is always up to the individual to decide whether to do this or that. We often have a little voice in our head that tell us what the right thing is or our gut feeling. I know that sometime it’s hard for us to do the right thing. A person that has good ethics is a type of person that is kind, giving, pleasant and thoughtful of other people even though sometimes it seems impossible to do because some people are just mean. Virtue and happiness goes hand in hand but as humans we want it right now instead of the long term. We don’t want to wait and plan things out to benefit us in the long run. We want the end to justify the means but it all depends on your ethics and God’s will and in other words if something happens you take the appropriate action. In our society it’s hard to have good ethics because most of us are influent by the things around us.
To me beautiful are things that are pleasant to look at, listen to, touch, smell, or taste. I believe beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and the things that culture find beautiful. For example beauty can be what people perceive it to be, a person can be beautiful from the inside out, trees etc. Now when it comes to culture you have so many different things that are beautiful made. For example different cultures make different like jewelry, clay, arts etc. The purpose of art to me is what the artist is trying to say and what most of us perceive it to be. An art can be successful or valuable on how it was made and who paint the art. Yes beauty matters...
