Should Philosophy Be Taken Seriously?Posted by: JOE_PABLO
Is philosophy, like religion or science, worth being an active part of our daily lives? Should the Average Joe try to follow the certain ideas of philosophers such as Camus or Heidigger as real solutions, or continue to read them as purely literary texts?
Philosophy is Important
Philosophy is Useless
Some philosophies are very intelligent and insightful and help people get a deeper look into the world we live in. Other philosophies are completely useless and just utter BS! It depends on the philosopher and the philosophies.
Yes! absolutely. I love good philosophy, as long as it is factual, and somewhat based on evidence, the person believes what they are saying, as do others, then it is a big part of life. It makes you a lot smarter in aspects of your life.
Philosophy should be a required subject from 8th grade on. In this age of constant news and information that is full of misguided arguments, untruths, outright lies, and carefully crafted statements designed to mislead, it is imperative that people understand how important it is to evaluate what they hear and read.
Philosophy defines importance so why would it self-negate
it's a deterministic for every action we take - not only does it create new definitions and ideas, it also helps to explain pre-existing frameworks for decision-making and political action, and gives voice to both Deleuzean minorities and those who feel they have no voice. Yes, philosophy is important.
Yep, it's exceedingly important, both in helping you get through life and in developing your reasoning skills.
although DO i enjoy philosophy, i enjoy thinking about different possibilities and making up my mind on things, also love debating arguments on some topics. However there is actually no reason why we need to think about it. why question everything into such depth? i understand some people want to make up their mind on things such as weather to believe in a creator or not, but we don't NEED it in order to survive. for me i guess i can say its kind of like a hobby? i just enjoy it.
