"Do you believe that your past determines your future? This is not an idle question of philosophical theory. To the extent that you belive that the past determines the future, you will tend to allow yourself to be a passive vessel that does not actively change its course. Such beliefs are responsible for magnifying many people's inertia. Perhaps, ironically, the ideology behind those beliefs was laid down by the three great geniuses of the nineteenth century: Darwin, Marx, and Freud." From Authentic Happiness by Dr. Seligman. #philosophy #less_wrong #fatalism #determinism #comments #discussions #pub
