    I heard a thought in my head.

    Life is like a custody battle between a husband and a wife in the middle of a divorce. In their first season of Passion, Mother Nature and Father Mind conceived a child - Spirit. As soon as the child came forth, passion lost they decided to part ways. But both loved their...

    No To Paradox. . . Yes To Musings.

    Philosophy could be entertaining. It gives you a free pass to be an observer and to be more of a humorist with a bit of sarcasms keeping up with life's turns, and ups and downs. It keeps your mind away from being idle, and sometimes it lets you act from what is expected or what...

    My New Fascination

    Philosophy is so fascinating. I have chosen it as a subject at school and many people looked at me like, "whats the use of such a thing", but I find it so much more interesting than economics or French or anything. I have always been a thinker. When I was little I used...

    The Consolations Of Philosophy

    This passage was something that i read a year ago in the book. The Consolations of Philosophy by Alain De Botton. I like this book a lot because it tries to relate philosophy to everyday life. 'To look at those thinkers who have sought to be not clever or paradoxical, but...

    Brief Analysis: The Moral Argument For The Existence Of God

    Firstly, there is an inherently obfuscating notion of ‘objectivity’ being employed when certain theists employ the moral argument for the existence of God. Secondly, I believe that the distinction between moral ontology and moral epistemology is consistently muddled in such...

    I Like To Write About Philosophy, But I Find It Hard To Do.

    There is no technique, or recipe, or set of guidelines for writing an essay in philosophy. — That statement might not appear very helpful. To the beginner, the very idea of a philosophy essay seems mysterious, and the prospect of having to write one quite intimidating. Any...

    Movie Quote - Yvonne - Munich

    Marcuse says Hegel's "Philosophy of Right" does not assign a moral category to "wrong". Free will inevitably causes wrong. That's written by Marx. The blind anarchy of capitalism. You have to be prepared to reconsider right and wrong. Because basically those are just terms...

    Sophie's World Became Mine!

    Since I've read Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder five years ago, I've been hooked on philosophy...I've always perceived my thought patterns to hold a certain propensity towards philosophical thinking, but this book just pushed the snowball down the proverbial edge.

    It Is What Makes Us Humans

    Philosophy is thinking. Thinking about life, causes, purposes, possibilities. It is how we make sense of the world and of ourselves. Without it we are blind, merely reacting to our surrounding, like animals. Philosophy is not about reading what other philosophers have said, but...
