Of Thought Experiments

I was surfing the web. Initially, it was just random, Brownian surfing. Then I thought about surfing with a purpose. I thought what should I surf the web for? Then I thought about surfing the web for thought experiments. I found this brilliant read on the website of Stanford university. I hope that you would like to give it a read.

Thought Experiments

Thought experiments are basically devices of the imagination. They are employed for various purposes such an entertainment, education, conceptual analysis, exploration, hypothesizing, theory selection, theory implementation, etc. Some applications are more controversial than others. Few would object to thought experiments that serve to illustrate complex states of affairs, or those that are used in educational contexts.
