Understanding an argument i was presented with by a theist.
I wish to understand this argument for the mind being an immaterial thing.
It goes like this.
1. We have universals
Universals are, from what I understand, like axioms. The number 2 was presented as a example of a universal.
2. Universals by definition have to be immaterial
3. we know universals
4. therefore there must be something immaterial
I'll try to explain better any part that someone doesn't understand. I still have the original conversation i had and if i can't make it clearer i may just post the conversation I'll see.
Thanks for the help.
