"An example of value-pluralism is the idea that the moral life of a nun is incompatible with that of a mother, yet there is no purely rational measure of which is preferable. Hence, moral decisions often require radical preferences with no rational calculus to determine which alternative is to be selected." - Wikipedia on Value Pluralism per Context

Pragmatism begins with the idea that belief is that upon which one is willing to act. It holds that a proposition's meaning is the consequent form of conduct or practice that would be implied by accepting the proposition as true.

In "How to Make Our Ideas Clear" Peirce argued for pragmatism as summed up in that which he later called the pragmatic maxim: "Consider what effects, that might conceivably have practical bearings, we conceive the object of our conception to have. Then, our conception of these effects is the whole of our conception of the object".

In his 1910 Pragmatism: A New Name for Some Old Ways of Thinking, James paraphrased Peirce's pragmatic maxim as follows:

“[T]he tangible fact at the root of all our thought-distinctions, however subtle, is that there is no one of them so fine as to consist in anything but a possible difference of practice. To attain perfect clearness in our thoughts of an object, then, we need only consider what conceivable effects of a practical kind the object may involve — what sensations we are to expect from it, and what reactions we must prepare."


"Towards the end of the 20th century there was a resurgence of interest in pragmatism. ... In the early 21st century, embodied cognition has gained strength as a theory of mind-body-world integration. " - Wikipedia on American Plilosophy

One can compute the molecular mass of a compound by adding the atomic masses of its constituent atoms (nuclides). One can compute the molar mass of a compound by adding the relative atomic masses of the elements given in the chemical formula. In both cases the multiplicity of the atoms (the number of times it occurs) must be taken into account, usually by multiplication of each unique mass by its multiplicity.



a common example of adiabatic compression?

note that:The Pauli exclusion principle governs the behavior of all fermions (particles with "half-integer spin"), while bosons (particles with "integer spin") are not subject to it.

ImageLegislature's capacity to produce immanently applicable statute in interstate circumstances such as to lead a reasonable person of reasonable intelligence to rely on a course of action that supports the existance of a valid marriage...

ImageThe opinion of the Court of Appeal of the State of California in re marriage JOSEPH S. and TANYA M. CATARELLA: "Most importantly, a marriage ceremony culminated in the parties declaration that they accepted each other as husband and wife. ... Common sense and tradition tells us this is the moment at which the parties' valid consent creates a marriage. ... Sections of the statutory scheme support our conclusion a marriage was valid ... despite a failure to register"

Image122.090 of the Nevada Revised Statutes: "No marriage solemnized before any person professing to be a ... person authorized to solemnize a marriage ... shall be deemed or adjudged void, nor shall the validity thereof be in any way affected on account of any want of jurisdiction or authority."

immanently, schemata culminated in traction.

traction of the principled effect of its instantiation and it's becoming into judicial opinion...

"Traction refers to ... surfaces without slipping." - Wikipedia on Traction (engineering)

weight the scales... mention of statute in judicial opinion against judicial opinion of no mention.

at least they thought to layer the courts...

This group contains passive hunting traits. One part of the traits is related to preferred habitats (e.g.
slowly flowing water; caves; woods; liking mist or fog; preferring temperate landscapes over
tropical). Another part seems to be close-contact hunting traits (e.g. jumping over things; climbing;
chasing animals; biting; enjoying spinning in circles; strong grip; strong hands; physical endurance;
enjoying rodeo riders). Some other traits are related to sneaking (e.g. sneaking through the woods;
sneaking up on animals; walking on toes) and general hunting tactics (e.g. mimicking animal sounds;
digging; throwing small things; building traps; fascination for fire; sniffing)
