    Tigers without ethics are not of interest!

    Physics and biology don’t sound like liberal arts to me. But Holmes’ artistic expression when Calvin comes home from school is pretty good.

    re: demtrug.

    Philosophy was pretty straightforward until the 1700s when it took a 90 turn and ceased to be the search for truth. It became leading away people from truth. Voltaire, Kirkegard, Marx, Nietzsche, etc.

    Hobbes forgot kinetic energy. K.E. =1/2mv2.

    Actually modern philosophy is still a search for the truth, it has just shifted focus from the truth about the universe (which physics has more or less nailed) and to the nature of humans, which is a lot harder to explain by natural sciences.

    Philosophy will always be about questions to which there is no definitive answer, once an answer is found, it ceases to be philosophy and becomes science.

    Strangely enough modern physics is becoming more and more like philosophy, with different theories trying to describe reality without actual evidence in experiments.

    Actually, they were and are – if you don’t specialize in them as your degree. I have a liberal arts degree and I took classes in both.

    Leave it to Hobbes to shoot down Calvin’s misapprehensions about the world, especially about tigers.

    “the truth about the universe (which physics has more or less nailed)”

    As you later go on to say, Physics has not nailed it at all; although it is providing plenty of fascinating insights, facts and theories, it is also highlighting all we don’ know and the very many possibilities available.

    By no means nailed, though.

    The ethics of attacking running animals is also explored in todays’ “Skippy”:

    The purpose of a liberal arts education is to be well-rounded. It always includes the sciences, though not as a primary focus. In principle, a liberal arts degree makes a person adaptable to their surroundings, able to think on the fly and take in the bigger meaning.

    OK, maybe not nailed. Screwed up, definitely.
