from Lawrence, Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: Monarchy + News

Dear friends,
This Sunday we are discussing Monarchy. A rather apt topic for the Sunday before Easter week.
In the few words I prepared on the topic I argue that there is nothing special about monarchy from
other systems. However, what is more interesting is that politics seems to defy the Greek philosophy
of change: whilst we cannot step in the same river twice, it seems that politics is in constant
infinite flux, but we always step in the same mess.
In the mean:

Monarchy
We inevitably live in an inductive world for two basic reasons. The first is that events happen in a
causal way hence there is a correlation between cause and effect ,which are a series of physical
events over time.
The other reason why we live in an inductive world is that our knowledge of the world is also a
function of causality and time. We cannot have Information about an event until the event has
happened. And because we need information in a physical form, this implies that knowledge must
follow the restrictions imposed by the physical world.
The combination of these two factors in how our world functions, means that induction, and hence our
world had an inbuilt flaw of uncertainty.
There are two basic ways to avoid or mitigate uncertainty and the whims of inductive thinking. The
first is to avoid surprises and the other is to provide stability. The more we know about induction,
the more we can understand the mathematical implications of this thinking the more we can control
it; for example, by understanding long tails, or black swans.
Stability has always been a favourite for philosophers dating back to the Greeks, for example
Heraclitus and his ideas on flux, to Spinoza's equilibrium and of course Hume's induction argument
itself. Things that are stable tend to be predictable and prediction is a very valuable commodity
for human beings.
Monarchy is just another form of biological game for a group of people to survive in the world by
creating stability and predictability. The world of induction and unpredictability of future events
are very dangerous for humans.
The figure of the monarch creates stability by predicting the continuation of the leadership of
power. But this feature of a monarchy to create a stable leadership is not exclusive to monarchies.
Republics create stability by predicting the regularity of elections. This basic principle for the
need of leadership it seems is independent of any concept of morality, justice and efficiency. It
seems that a human society requires a head or a leader.
What is not clear is what purpose does this need for a head or leader have. Are leaders there for
the benefit of the people or the leader or his or her circle of influence?
The most important philosophical shift that goes some way at answering this –purpose- question is
the demise of the doctrine of divine right of kings. Which basically states that the authority of
the king is derived directly from god and that the king is not answerable to any earthly authority.
The English civil war, and later the French revolution and the various constitutions and liberalism
of the 19th century, all shifted power and authority from the monarch to the people. Sovereignty was
made to reside in the people.
In terms of successful monarchies, today many monarchies are constitutional monarchies. Meaning,
they are established by a consituion and power more or less resides in parliament. There are still
absolute monarchies but, quite telling, they are in power by involking some form of divine right of
kings: eg by linking religion with power.
Going back to the theme of stability, there is no doubt that this is a very desirable characteristic
of society, but it seems that stability within a society can only be achieved through an equitable
exercise of power and authority.
In this respect, I would argue that whether a society is headed by a monarch or a president is
irrelevant on the one had and on the other I see no philosophical difference between the two. One
system is not better than the other in terms of justice, fairness and stability.
However, what matters to a society is the exercise of power and authority. How to the leaders
exercise their power and for whose benefit? But the exercise of power can only be for the benefit of
the people if and only if those who have power are also held accountable for their actions.
And it seems that accountability is not a high profile feature is all forms of leaderships. So in
this respect, very little has changed from the doctrine of the divine right of kings. At face value
it seems that the need for the god figure in the divine right of kings, was simply an excuse to
govern with impunity. But the people's sovereignty has not resulted in better accountability of
those in power.
The bottom line is that the political game we play (monarchy, republic or what ever) does not itself
create a strong sense of accountability, but this does not mean that some leaders, maybe out of good
grace, do not act fairly and justly.

-----------Ignacio------------
The meaning of happiness
I intend to plan the meaning of happiness, seen this concept in a double approach,either by
experiencing positive emotions or by lacking from negative ones.
People think that achieving happiness might depend from one´s lifestyle,that is,whoever that
accomplishes to have certain material things in life is supposed to have the chance to be happy.
However, it is not only that happiness might depend from inmaterial things as much as material ones,
if not more.
It seems as well that a positive general attitude towards life might drive us to have those material
things that are supposed to help us being happy.
As most of us have been undergoing bad experiences in our lives I'd rather stick to relate happiness
with the lack of bad emotions. Since for the most of us it is difficult to avoid these bad emotions,
having to assume their inevitability, I´d rather point out the concept of psychological resilience
or endurance-defined as the way to cope with stress and adversity-as the origin of a real and
sustainable happiness.
Beyond that general attitude to overcome difficulties, I would like to point out several positive
factors to achieve happiness related feelings:
-Pleasure (tasty foods, warm baths, etc.),
-Engagement (or flow, the absorption of an enjoyed yet challenging activity),
-Relationships (social ties have turned out to be extremely reliable indicator of happiness),
-Meaning (a perceived quest or belonging to something bigger), and
-Accomplishments (having realized tangible goals)
Book recommended:
Shawn Achor - "The Happiness Advantage: Linking Positive Brains to Performance"

In the meantime Ignacio has reminded me to let you know about the new arrangements for the Thursday

+ Luisa on Saturdays and Ignacio on Thursdays

Dear friends,
As you can see we have a full programme of exciting events in the coming days.
And just when we thought that we exhausted the subject of relationships, last Sunday we voted for a
rather interesting topic: How realistic are relationships portrayed in fiction?
As if real life relationships weren't unrealistic and complicated enough in many cases, why would we
bother with fiction? We might not bother if we could easily isolate our lives from one context to an
other. And we were clever enough to compartmentalise our brain between fiction and real life. If we
could, companies wouldn't spend millions of Euros advertising in films, TV programmes and maybe even
books.
So one of the possible issues with the portrayal of relationships in fiction is that some might
identify with the characters but fail to deal with their real life.

Dear Friends,
This Sunday we are discussing: Is Facebook as good as Face to Face?
Despite the user's unfriendlyness, Facebook can offer quite a good platform to keep up with friends
and people with similar interests as you. Keeping in mind that Facebook is public exposure on a
global scale. However, the things that matter are best done face to face.

from Lawrence, Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: Equity + News

Dear Friends,
This week we are discussing Equity.
A rather nebulous term, but in a court of law, at least an English court of law, it was the last
attempt for justice to be made. In many cases it worked. For example we owe the right of our money
back for faulty goods we buy from a Scottish case (Donoghue) that was basically decided in favour of
the plaintiff and this established the principle of duty of care to a party not privy to a contact.
The question we have to ask is what is equity outside the context of a court of law? We know it is
something to do with being good, but what exactly?
In the meantime some messages:

Hi Lawrence,
Over the weekend I saw a poster advertising a production of Marlowe's Faust at Teatros Canal. I
don't know if it's something that interests many people, but it certainly interests me.
Unfortunately, I can only attend on Saturdays because of my TOEFL course. But, if others are
interested maybe we could meet for a drink or something before or after. I plan on going on March 3
and Blanca thought she might go too. There is a discount for large groups, but it needs to be 20 or
