Do you enjoy studying philosophy?
I do. If I could do it over, I would add majors and major in psychology, sociology, and philosophy, in addition to my current studies.
I have a love/hate relationship with it. Sometimes I'll read an article on it and I'm thinking they're overanylzing this. Or I read something , and think, Hmmm interesting. .
I like logic, which sometimes falls under the umbrella of philosophy, even if it should be under math or computer science, and ethics is necessary, but the rest of philosophy seems worse than a waste of time.
One of my three college majors...
I took an introductory philosophy course to meet a requirement in college. It featured week-long discussions on questions such as, "Can we trust the evidence of our senses?" Sure wish I had pursued my option to have taken economics instead...
Well, can we?!
I have a love/hate relationship with philosophy.
I think the big thing is that I like thinking and tearing things down a few layers to analyze them better, but there comes a point of diminishing returns and it hurts my head to keep going deeper than I see immediate practical application for. I prefer to let people who enjoy it dive into the deeper layers and give their observations afterward for me to review.
If I don't know I'm doing it.
Yes, philosophy is what I base all on my decisions on, and I also use philosophic principals for political ideology.
It was a fun course to take as a general ed credit, but I quietly chuckle at those who major in philosophy and expect to be able to do anything with that degree.
PhD or law school...those are basically your only options with a philosophy degree.
Even with a Ph.D in philosophy, unless you get super lucky, the best job you can hope to get is teaching philosophy at a university level.
Yes. It's my minor.
I really enjoy it.
Political theory courses were some of my favorites.
Just don't the way my professor does it. 40 mins student presentation per day on one philosopher.
Yes. I'm taking a class in environmental ethics/philosophy right now and I love it
People who hate philosophy, in my experience, are the kind of people who typically don't like to think.
I just sucked at it in school
