Fwd: Use of the Ockham Razor of Philosophy


Subject: Use of the Ockham Razor of Philosophy

The Ockham Razor of philosophy was proposed by the mediaeval scholar William of Ockham, who worked at Oxford and Paris before being exiled to the Court of Ludwig of Bavaria in Munich. He was falsely accused of “heresy”, a term which was used to get rid of anyone you didn’t agree with. I am familiar with this method myself. The proofs of points (1) and (2) of the previous message are so simple that questioning them raises eyebrows among genuine scholars and undergraduate students free of dogma. I am all in favour of freedom of thought, but this is the simplest of mathematics. For example proof one on the homepage of _www.aias.us_ (http://www.aias.us) .
