The occupation centers that serve people with autism who are lower-functioning – a sizeable portion, if not the bulk of people on the autism spectrum Well, that's a flat-out lie. Around 66-84% of autistic people have IQs over 70, and most autistic people have good verbal skills. Just because the be...

Maybe a dog or cat is plenty smart enough, just thinks nonverbally?

There really probably are living people who have extremely positive memories of The Star Wars Holiday Special from Nov. 17, 1978. Esquire magazine called it a “brilliant disaster.” A show can be so bad it’s good. And/or the crummy parts when placed against the good parts make for greater texture (mo...

From Derek Parfit, I personally draw the conclusion:

My future self and well-being has of course moral count, as does the well-being of other people. And the difference between the two is less than what I grew up believing.

Good for the parents for standing up for their adult children! :D

And although it’s my own slogan and didn’t come up in this protest and news coverage, I personally am very much in favor of the slogan, “We are all middle-functioning!”

And hope that it catches on.

. . . When Mill said that the world would be as unjustified in silencing the opinions of one person as they would be in silencing the rest of the world, he obviously wasn't trying to maximize mere units of happiness, but do what was best for each individual. I'm not familiar with motive utilitarian...

. . . Our conclusions about morality probably aren't very different (although I prefer a Rawlsian view of rights); we just get there in different ways. I think of Rawls as basically asking, What society would I like to be reincarnated into, if I didn’t know what position I’d be in? Is this understa...

It's similar to what Hume was getting at when he talked about the is-ought problem but from a different angle and more expanded. If you can't get an ought from an is, oughtness can't be an intrinsic part of an is. . . Do you think there’s some potential from the idea of emergent properties? For exa...

I think George Moore wanted to find a way around ethical hedonism— the idea that happiness (broadly defined) is the only intrinsic good in the universe, and suffering (broadly defined) the only intrinsic bad. In fact, I’m pretty sure Moore wanted to add knowledge and beauty and one or two others to ...

1.) Perks of being a super fast writer. It also comes with super fast encoding as well as decoding. :lol: Words and sentences are more like muscle memory that seem like a form of pattern recognition...

and one extra: 1) Recording lectures (if the professor allows it) and listening to it whilst reading notes. This can really help if you have auditory processing issues!
