My philosophical views

Question Answer Comments
A priori knowledge: yes and no Lean toward: no We do have innate dispositions that can lead to successful action if that's what one means.
Abstract objects: Platonism and nominalism The question is too unclear to answer
Aesthetic value: objective and subjective Accept another alternative
Analytic-synthetic distinction: yes and no Accept: no
Epistemic justification: internalism and externalism Accept both each tracks a different but, in principle, coherent notion of what it means to have justification
External world: idealism, skepticism or non-skeptical realism Accept another alternative I am naturalist and falliblist on such questions.
Free will: compatibilism, libertarianism or no free will Accept: compatibilism
God: theism and atheism Accept: atheism unless one plays around with the definition of god.
Knowledge: empiricism and rationalism Lean toward: empiricism

Normative ethics: deontology, consequentialism or virtue ethics Accept another alternative
Perceptual experience: disjunctivism, qualia theory, representationalism or sense-datum theory Accept another alternative I am a pluralist here too. Each account captures some philosophical intuitions and misses others. Why suppose there is only one faithful account of experience?
Personal identity: biological view, psychological view or further-fact view Accept another alternative All of the above and more---each account tracks a different sort of identity.
