About Spiros Kakos
Spyridon Kakos [Σπύρος Κάκος] is the main writer of Harmonia Philosophica. He holds a diploma in chemical engineering, an MBA in Decision Sciences, an MSc in Advanced materials’ science and technology and a PhD in the development of Printed Circuit Boards. He is currently working as an IT Consultant in a big IT Consulting company.
He is the creator of ‘Huo Chess’, one of the smallest micro-chess programs available. He has also created a series of programming tutorials on how to develop a chess program for absolute beginners, which you can find at How to Develop a Chess Program for Dummies.
He likes reading and writing philosophy. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, proposing the “Religional Science” term. He wants to unmask all underlying assumptions of our thinking today; this is the purpose of philosophy after all. He is devoted in exposing underlying assumptions of science so that they do not turn into “dogmas” (see Limits of Science, Russel Wallace and Evolution Theory, Earth at the Center of the Universe?, Human Consciousness and the End of Materialism). He is opposed to anyone who thinks that he knows the “ultimate truth” and is worried that today’s materialistic society will forget that art, love, human trust and ethics are not scientifically “measurable” things. He is worried that people may forget that it was Aristotle who first spoke for a Creator of the world and not a dogmatically blinded religious man. He agrees with Feyerabend in that Science must be separated from the State (see State – Science separation: Is it time?). He sees in technology something useful for our everyday life that must be treated with moderation because of its inherently inhuman nature (see The Dark Side of Technology).
The Harmonia Philosophica philosophy program is a personal attempt to reunite all philosophy for the One reality where dogmatism (of any kind) does not exist.
