Our latest BLOG member, Marriah Star, has just posted his essay:
What is Philosophy?
True philosophy consists in a thinker responding effectively to
critical junctures, in thought and/or experience. All philosophy
combines the personal with the metaphysical. Hence, philosophy is
like religion: it relies on a personality - either a person or some
deity - to personify a WAY TO BE. It does not rely solely on thought,
but on action, and action requires a role model. The thinker must
either use himself as the role model, or some other, possibly
fictional person, but hopefully someone who actually exists. Hence,
philosophy relies on heroes and villains, and has a great deal of
connection with mythology as a result. All philosophy is merely a
response of the individual to his or her environment. Nothing more or
less. True philosophy consists in the individual finding the optimal
response to his or her environment - a response that, whatever the
circumstances, leads to greater ability to survive and flourish in a
chosen environment. Philosophy does this by allowing the individual
to predict the future to some degree.
