The discussion at R. Scott Bakker’s Three Pound Brain has continued and sprouted numerous branches, and yet Wängsty himself has thus far resolutely refused to provide any definition of “certainty” or “uncertainty” despite the fact that his entire philosophical framework appears to rest upon them. Here is but one of several comments that I have made there in answering the various questions of his commenters even as Bakker continues to avoid answering mine.
Why is he so reluctant to provide definitions for his central terms? Is he afraid that his entire philosophical edifice will tumble to the ground if he exposes it to criticism? Or is it only that the certainty of a definition would be less moral than the uncertainty of a non-definition, so he is simply attempting to abide by the ethos of his doubt-filled creed?
