“Modern developments in both logic and physics (quantum physics) have cast doubt on the universality of at least two of these so-called laws, giving support to the Port Royals’ contention that logic is merely the refinement of clear thinking in aid of argumentation, or rhetoric.”
Philip Stokes, Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers

“what proof is there that dupery through hope is so much worse than dupery through fear?”
Philip Stokes, Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers

“Occam’s Razor’ (so-called because the principle encourages one to cut out unnecessary complications from theory) is ultimately aesthetic: why postulate two things when one will do? Or as Occam is said to have put it, ‘It is vain to do with more what can be done with fewer’.”
Philip Stokes, Philosophy 100 Essential Thinkers
