Philosophy Wire: A black and blue dress. A white and gold dress. A world made up of consciousness. Will. The fear of responsibility.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-04-06]: A debate about the true color of a dress has sparked all over the Internet about a month ago. [1] We need reality to exist. We are afraid to admit that we are the ones who create it. Perception is subjective. So why not reality as well? What we like not is the responsibility. Let Photoshop tell us what colour this is. Why should we decide? But this is what makes us humans! This is what consciousness is! This is what Being is all about! Will. Otherwise we are naked… From the cold forests of the North to the deserts of Africa, our WILL is what makes the world be. The dress is green. I just decided that. I am God.
