Question:

Name one major way in which Kant and Hume disagree and one (non-trivial) belief they both hold.

Inactive
Rockwell G.
Answer:

In many ways, Kant was fighting against Humean skepticism. Kant noticed that while our flawed senses may cut us off from verifiable knowledge of the outer world, we could still examine consciousness itself directly. Perhaps we can come to understand a bit about the reality we are cut off from ("things in themselves") by analyzing the experience-machine of our minds. Ultimately arriving at a philosophy of transcendental idealism, Kant concluded that there were certain preconditions to the possibility of his experiences that he could deduce must necessarily be true by the mere fact of his experience. (Side note: this type of argument on the ground of "preconditions to a possibility" is called a "transcendental argument" which is where the "transcendental" in transcendental idealism comes from) On the other hand, something common to both of them was a deep skepticism including, for instance, the belief that what we call causality is something constructed/projected onto the world by the mind.

Answer:

Possible mentions in the answer could be important enzymes like helicase and RNA polymerase; definitely needed would be a description of the transcription and translation process (and the types of RNA involved) to turn genetic sequences into protein-building instructions; the codon amino acid pairings; ribosomes; and perhaps more advanced levels may know a bit about the chemistry of protein folding.

Question:

How should you respond to competition in the market your venture is entering?

Answer:

The most important thing to think of when evaluating competition is how you can *differentiate* rather than trying to merely out-compete already existing players in the market. There are several models like the SWAT analysis that can help your team think through your relationship with competitors and where you have the most opportunity for value creation and profit.
