Transcript of Prodigy

Children that have reached the level of “professional” in their particular field
Many of the fields are “rule-based”
Rage 2 Learn
A high IQ is not necessary to be a prodigy, however a prodigies working memory typically scores in at least the 99th percentile of the population.
“…even if reality in itself were LAW- GOVERNED, its laws could not simply migrate over to our mind or imprint themselves on us while our mind is entirely passive. We must exercise an active capacity to represent the world as combined or ordered in a law-governed way, because otherwise we could not represent the world as law-governed even if it were law-governed in itself.”
He synthesized early modern RATIONALISM and EMPIRICISM, set the terms for much of nineteenth and twentieth century philosophy, and continues to exercise a significant influence today in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, and other fields
“…arguing against the Empiricists that the MIND IS NOT A BLANK SLATE that is written upon by the empirical world, and by rejecting the Rationalists’ notion that pure, a priori knowledge of a mind-independent world was possible”
“Reason itself is structured with forms of experience and categories that give a phenomenal and logical structure to any possible object of empirical experience.”
“These categories cannot be circumvented to get at a mind-independent world, but they are necessary for experience of spatio-temporal (SPACE & TIME) objects with their causal behavior and logical properties. These two theses constitute Kant’s famous transcendental idealism and empirical realism.”

He viewed humans as machines.
Humans have no free will
Life is tragic
Humans nature is to be selfish
Thomas Hobbes was a child prodigy
His talents in logics and mathematics favored his educational development
He was able to attent an affiliated institute of the Oxford University at only 14 years
Became a private teacher and assistant to the father of empiricism, Francis Bacon; influenced Hobbes critically.

“Thus has made us for Thyself and our hearts are restless until they find rest in Thee"
St. Augustine in Confessions
Based on his experience as a teenager (deciding to make the wrong decision - stealing from the orchard) and his philosophy... He would likely hold these opinions:
We all have FREE WILL and are defined by our choices. Proteges have the free will (and are ultimately responsible) to make good choices, and the parents have the free will and responsibility to help them.
So what do we do?
Doctrine of Love:
Love Friends
Love God

Bad choices lead to further ignorance
We need to use our gifts to glorify God
