“Never ignore a gut feeling, but never believe that it’s enough” Robert Haller. This quotation suggests that instinctive judgment is not enough to draw conclusions, ways of knowing need to verify our gut feelings before we can actually jump to conclusions we require ways which we can use to understand the world around us, these are ways of knowing. Sometimes we need to make sure that what our innate feelings portray is true, so we require something to justify and verify our feelings; that is why we have a check on or examine these feelings or sentiments as to establish our own satisfaction.

In a simpler matter, you do what you do because of the way you are. To be truly morally responsible for what you do, you must be responsible for the way you are. But, you cannot be truly responsible for the way you are; therefore, you cannot truly be morally responsible for what you do. Strawson follows this explanation of the argument by stating that we are what we are, and no punishment or reward is "fitting" for us. He then goes on to expand on the consequences of the Basic Argument.

My Thoughts: I found this quote to be extremely important and felt it connected back to Anaïs Nin’s section. It’s all about connecting with yourself within and knowing who you are. You have to be honest with yourself and know exactly who you are before you can live a good life. Meyers points out that its important to know who you truly are just based on personal reasons and for important cases like “moral and political autonomy”.

As Parfit states, “Since these two choices will be worse for no one, we need to explain why we have a moral reason not to make these choices. This problem arises because, in different outcomes, different people would exist. I therefore call this the Non-Identity Problem” (Parfit, 378).

For example, we cannot appeal to the rights of future people because there is no way we can communicate with them.
