[1] Constitutional law can make no genuine advance until it isolates the problem of rights against the state and makes the problem part of its own agenda. Conclusion [2] That argues for a fusion of constitutional law and moral theory, a connection that, incredibly, has yet to take place. Premise Ronald Dworkin Taking Rights Seriously , p. 149 11. [1] There is absolutely nothing that is seen by two minds simultaneously. Conclusion [2] When we say that two people see the same thing, we always find that, owing to difference of point of view, there are differences, however slight, between their immediate sensible objects. Premise Bertrand Russell Our

Knowledge of the External World , p. 95 12. [1] The value , or WORTH of a man, is as of all things, his price; that is to say, as much so would be given for the use of his power: Premise and therefore [2] is not absolute; Conclusion but [3] a thing dependent on the need and judgment of another. Conclusion Thomas Hobbes Leviathan, English Works , 3, p. 76 13. [1] The only proof capable of being given that an object is visible is that people actually see it. Premise [2] The only proof that a sound is audible is that people hear it: Premise [3] and so of the other sources of our experience. Premise In like manner, I apprehend, [4] the sole evidence it is possible to produce that anything is desirable is that people do actually desire it. Conclusion John Stuart Mill Utilitarianism, Collected Works, X, p. 234 14. [1] It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; Conclusion [2] better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. Conclusion And [3] if the fool, or the pig, is of a different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question. Premise John Stuart Mill Utilitarianism, p. 212 15. [1] If the facts of experience—facts about what it is like for the experiencing organism--are accessible only from one point of view, then it is a mystery how the true character of experiences could be revealed in the physical operation of that organism. Conclusion [2] The latter is a domain of objective facts par excellence-- the kind that can be observed and understood from many points of view and by individuals with differing perceptual systems. Premise Thomas Nagel “What is it Like to be a Bat?” Mortal Questions , p. 172 16. [1] Everything necessarily is or is not, and will be or will not be; but one cannot divide and say that one or the other is necessary. Conclusion I mean, for example: [2] it is necessary for there to be or not to be a sea-battle tomorrow; but it is not necessary for a sea-battle to take place tomorrow, nor for one not to take place-- though it is necessary for one to take place or not to take place…. Premise Aristotle De Interpretatione , 19a. 17. [1] Motion being eternal, Premise [2] the first mover, if there is but one, will be eternal also. Conclusion Aristotle Physics , 259a 18.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
