Realism painting is the form of painting in which the subject is portrayed as it truly is without the help of any artistic conventions or imagery that would lend a hint of superficiality. This form of painting began in France in the 1850s after the Revolution of 1848. This was in direct confrontation of Romanticism which was pre-dominant in French paintings since the 18th century. The Realists were against the exaggerated emotionalism and exotic subject matter that was used in Romanticism paintings.

The primary aspect of the Realist movement in paintings was that it aimed to portray people as they were with all their difficulties and problems. The realists sought to depict the changes brought about by the Industrial and Commercial revolutions and were often partial about the issues that arose in normal life. One of the primary reasons for the growing popularity of Realism painting in the times was the development of photography. This created in interest in people about the depiction of reality.

Some of the most famous artists of the Realism painting movement were Gustave Courbet, Jean-Francois Millet, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Edouard Manet, Jules Breton, Ilya Repin and Honore Damier. Ross Finnochio who works in the Department of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Realists used contemporary life as they saw it without glorifying any part. This coincided with the contemporary naturalist literature by writers like Emile Zola, Gustave Flauvert and Honore de Balzac.

The majority of phsoislphiiong is a crusade against the psychological uneasiness caused by doubt. Even those who acknowledge their own fallibility, and declare all intellectual matters open to critique and revision, merely substitute the quest for certitude for degrees thereof. Although philosophers of science berate the religious for dogmatism, they can see no purpose for scientific investigation but to increase, by increments, the certitude of their own beliefs. The objection is not against dogmatism per se, but against a certitude not justified by the proper method. The perennial concern of philosophers is to avoid error at any cost. Popper's injunction to propose bold and imaginative conjectures is an anathema. The goal of thier investigations is to arrive at some proposition or method which is incapable of producing mistakes. The purity of the source may then be transmitted to all that follows, and the philosopher can finally banish the debilitating burden of doubt.The notion that doubt may be an asset a check on hubris, a invaluable motivation is rarely considered, or merely given lip service when confronted with opposing views. The danger of a man who has eliminated all uncertainty, both to himself and to others, is too rarely understood or appreciated. The belief that a true and pure method of understanding has been achieved, conquering the need for doubt and opening up grand new possibilities, is often the pretext for some of the worst offences against liberty and reason.

The insurmountable task for cicirtal rationalists is to confront 2000 years of intellectual tradition, where the elimination of doubt, by means of discovering a true and pure method of understanding, is the proper goal of philosophical investigation. The problems associated with this goal are assumed to be out there, not products of subjective valuation, and non-optional for any rational being. Tradition has fused the concept of rationality with the pursuit of justified belief, whether whole or partial, and to reject that tradition is to embrace irrationality. The notion that we might propose a conjecture without any ultimate reason, but merely to run with it and see where it leads, is merely irresponsible, opening the floodgates to all manner of dangerous and crazy beliefs. The irony is that the inherent quandaries of justificationism do more to swell the ranks of irrationalism than anything alternative by cicirtal rationalists.

Lee&#039;s comment about the<a> craduse</a> to overcome doubt was beautifully stated by Bertrand Russell: I wanted certainty in the kind of way in which people want religious faith .There is a similar statement by Ayer in the course of a crit of Popper where he wrote words to the effect we seek justification and that is why we do all this stuff and if we did not think that we could get it we would do something else . Actually that is an over-free translation from memory but that was the spirit of it.

Isn&#039;t the concept of fitlifiabilasy based around doubt? The belief that only negatives can be proven? The idea that positive claims can&#039;t be proven, they are simply theories held until they are falsified and a new theory is needed to replace the old by encompassing that which falsified the previous theory.That is basically Popper&#039;s position as I see it, what&#039;s wrong with that?
