I don’t really know if there are many reasons why we should discuss philosophy or philosophize. I would like to. It is a tool that helps us to look at things from perspective that we otherwise couldn’t, but it also gives the abstraction, indirectness(abstraktumą, netikslumą), doesn’t it?
It gives us ability to create ideas with our minds about most difficult subjects in life, but it might distract us from believing the simplest ones!(paprasčiausiais).
The creativity is what I want to share by posting what I wrote one September afternoon during my Philosophy class..
What is philosophy?
How human benefits from a spirit?
Why do we value humanly things?
What is “over” the nature? Does nature have a spirit?
Why everything that is create gives in to philosophy?
Why philosophy depicts everything wider?
Why ancient Greeks spoke about exceptional things?
What is gnosis?
Why do we start from uncertainty?
Why agony is a real condition?
Why do people try to solve a problem of it?
What are feelings?
How not to let words go with a wind?
How principles of philosophy are created?
What is philosophy?
What might be the issues that arise from having philosophy around us? Or.. maybe there are too many different fields of philosophy, we can randomly pick one. Let’s take logic.
The main issue in our everyday lives involving logic is that usually we completely fail to remember it.
It is very difficult to to understand, how a leads to b, b leads to c, c leads to , then a leads to d… In everyday life we don’t have short letters representing ideas. We have long arguments, more complexity…
Some might try to manipulate this, by extending a->b->c->d chain to infinity. That would be alarming. Critical decisions are made based on logical arguments.
One way of avoiding this is to take notes of what is happening. Draw diagrams.. Follow! I experimented with this during one of my first philosophy lectures. It was both interesting and awarding!
