Week 2 Zeno’s Paradox Discussion


Respond to one of the prompts below and be clear about which one you are referring to:NOTE: YOUR RESPONSE TO ONE OF THE PROMPTS BELOW IS DUE ON WEDNESDAY BY 11:59PM. YOUR CRITICAL FEEDBACK TO TWO PEER RESPONSES IS DUE ON SUNDAY AT NOON. CANVAS ONLY SHOWS THE SECOND DEADLINE.PROMPT #1: ZENO PROMPT. Zeno’s paradox reveals a mismatch between the way we think about the world and the way the world actually is. The challenge then becomes how to identify what precisely is wrong with our thinking. Motion is possible, of course, and a fast human runner can beat a tortoise in a race. The problem seems to have something to do with our conception of infinity. How would you solve Zeno’s problem? In your mind, is space continuous or discrete? Explain your answer.PROMPT #1: A-Theory vs. B-THEORY. Consider this argument: “The subjective A-theory is inferior to the objective B-theory. For the subjective A-theory does not allow us to give a completely objective account of time descriptions. But the objective B-theory does allow us to give a subjective account of time descriptions.” Critically discuss this argument.

According to Zeno, a certain distance could
be cut apart infinitely through dichotomy
therefore we could not ever truly take a step
forward. However, the infinitesimal dot, as its
nature, can not be described or stipulated. To
prove his theory, Zeno should first prove that
integrity can be infinitely cut in the real world.
To consider whether the space is continuous
or discrete will have us in an antinomy. I
believe that time and space are apriori forms
of intuition. No matter the space is
continuous or discrete, it is an intuition
triggered by Ding an sich.

Hey Yilisha!
Reading your response, I couldn’t help
but finding myself agreeing with your
insight into a certain flaw of Zeno’s
paradox — that being that Zeno is
unable to prove the existence of infinity
in the real world as it would apply to the
theoretical. Furthermore, though I
would zaroo that enoroic continuous

Hi Erik! I like how you directed and
blamed the issue of the paradox to be
our concept of infinity. I also wrote a
similar statement pointing that out. I
also agree with the fact that Achilles
will eventually bypass the turtle, thus
removing the need to catch up to the
turtle to catch it and resulting in the
paradox. I initially wrote that time is
discrete but I think I want to change my
position now. Great job!

Hi Erik
I like your statement, which “I believe
that time is indeed continuous, motion
is still possible”. This is because I feel
that both motion and time could be
continuous in a same time. This is the
flaw of the theory by Zeno.
