The so-called mind-body problem is one of the greatest and most quietly painful conundrums in philosophy, and more importantly, in everyday life. The problem is rooted in the fact that in the eyes of other people, all of us are automatically and stubbornly associated with our bodies, which includes, of course, our faces. The way…

## On Claiming Belief in God: Commentary

So I think i’ll tell you what I’ve learned. Over the last year, um, I’ve traveled to about a hundred and sixty cities since last January with my wife Tammy, and spoken to about 300 thousand people at live events. And so the first thing I’ve learned was that, for some reason, I can travel…

## Module 1 Lecture -1 Functions Of Buildings

Welcome to NPTEL project, building materials and construction. This is module one and in the module one we shall be dealing with function of building, requirements of functional requirements of building, types of loads and role of materials. The course is on materials and construction. The first thing we got to understand is the role…

## C# Tutorial – 28 – Events

Events enable an object to notify other objects when something of interest occurs. The object that raises the event is called the publisher and the objects that handle the event are called subscribers. To demonstrate the use of events let’s first create the publisher. This will be a class that inherits from ArrayList, but this…

## unit 3 test corrections 7 Derivative of absolute value functions

Right let’s take a look at question number seven we are to find F prime if F is the absolute value of three X plus two okay so there two possible solutions you can have for this the derivative of this function so the first one I’m going to be using the differentiation rule DDX…

## Operations Research 10B: Hessian Matrix, Convex & Concave Functions

In this video, I’ll talk about Hessian matrix, positive semidefinite matrix, negative semidefinite matrix, and convex and concave functions. Let f be a function of n variables x1 through xn. Assume f has continuous second-order partial derivatives. The function f(x1, x2, …, xn) is convex if and only if its n × n Hessian matrix…

## finding domain of rational functions algebraically college algebra #1

Good day students welcome to mathgotserved.com in this clip were going to be going over the second example on how to find the domain of rational functions algebraic we okay so let’s take a look at the directions for the example we are to find the domain of the following rational function so for number…

## Operations Research 03F: Convex Set & Convex Function

In this video, I’ll talk about some concepts such as convex combinations, convex sets, convex functions, and concave functions. Given two points x and y in n dimensional space. A convex combination of these two points is defined as any point z that can be written in this form z=λx+(1-λ)y, λ is between 0 and…

## PHILOSOPHY – Mind: Mind-Body Dualism [HD]

(intro music) So my name’s Alex Byrne. I teach philosophy at MIT, and today I’m going to explain an argument for so-called mind-body dualism, the view that we are not physical or material things. And if we’re not physical or material things, the natural alternative is that we’re mental things of some kind. Immaterial minds…
