from Lawrence, SATURDAY PhiloMadrid meeting at 6:30pm: Less is More

Dear Friends

This Saturday we are discussing: Less is More

It is obvious that there is a stage when "less" is inadequate for what
we are trying to achieve. What is important is to know what is necessary
for us to achieve our object and what is sufficient. We don't have much
choice about what is necessary, but we can always use our judgement to
decide what is sufficient.

In science and philosophy Occam's razor (Ockham's razor) is usually the
starting point in a discussion about keeping things simple. Basically
this is a theory to favour a hypothesis with the least possible
assumptions. In science Popper's falsifiability criterion has a
simplicity of its own.

However, the value of the master is not in his or her creation, but in
knowing when the creation is done and therefore stop creating.

See you Saturday
