 Teaching- [Past teaching below]

I covered the verses from the Sunday Mass and a few notes from Church Unlimited-

I’ll add my past teaching below that relates.

I did teach some on Philosophy- Descartes- Leibniz and Pascal.

Descartes was born in 1596- died in 1650-

The most famous saying from Descartes is Cogito Ergo Sum- loosely meaning ‘I think- therefore I am’.

Pascal is also famous for his writings called the Penseeshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pens%C3%A9es these were various thoughts he had written down which became famous after his death.

They were not intended to be a complete teaching on the existence of God- but simply insights he jotted down during his life.

He was a Catholic Christian [like the others I mentioned above] and did associate himself with the Jansenist’s- a catholic movement that was a sort of Reform movement in itself- but they remained within the Church- https://www.britannica.com/topic/Jansenism 

They revived the teachings of Saint Augustine- and challenged the institutional church of their day.

I actually mentioned Augustine while I talked philosophy- his famous bent oar example- when you see an oar in the water- the senses [sight] seem to show it as being bent-http://lonergan.org/online_books/Liddy/chapter_four_augustine.htm 

Though it just ‘seems’ that way to the eye- yet in reality it is not bent.

This example came up while I talked about the whole subject of how we know what we know- a field all the thinkers I mentioned in this post dealt with- called epistemology.

The history of Theology- Science- Philosophy- were all intertwined when you sought a higher education in the classical sense-

As we got into Aristotle and Plato- I could not think of the school Plato started-

After I shut the vidoe off- I remembered- I believe it was the Academy [Honest- haven’t checked it yet- but taught all this before so if I’m right I’ll leave this note- I have since checked- here’s the link- http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0009%3Achapter%3D15%3Asection%3D2 ].

There were a few ‘coincidences’ that fit in with this weeks teaching- I share them on the video.

Leibniz shares the distinction as one of the inventors of Calculus [along with Newton]-https://www.thegreatcoursesdaily.com/invented-calculus-newton-leibniz/ 

And at the end of the video I mentioned Pascal’s Wager-https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/pascal-wager/ my daughter mentioned how it was funny- because she just moved her own copy of the book the day or so before-

So these are just a few notes- I’ll add the rest below-
