    How do you overcome parental favortism?

    Hi everyone, Has anyone here been the victim of parental favoritism as an adult? I am specifically talking about situations where one or both parents are convincingly giving one sibling special treatment (i.e. employment/career opportunities, monetary gain, etc.) over the other siblings. If so...

    Should I quit school altogether

    Thanks to everyone who responded. I will take a while longer to think everything through. PF really is a great resource.

    Should I quit school altogether

    I just need something solid and fundamental to focus my attention on. Math/Physics does this, while Philosophy seems to have a lot of fluff that can be entirely opinion based most of the time, if not all the time. The logic courses in Philosophy were alright when I took them.

    Should I quit school altogether

    Yes it so happens that while I was still in the Philosophy program four years ago I enjoyed the logic-based courses the most. If I do re-enter the program I would take only those types of courses you mentioned.

    Should I quit school altogether

    not too sure what you mean here - is the correct solution to stay home, go back to school, and finish the degree? I can definitely move out now and manage some sort of basic existence for a while, but will certainly forfeit the degree at this point. correct, I have zero math/physics courses at...

    Should I quit school altogether

    It's just really difficult for me to judge the value of the BA in Philosophy, and the uncertainty about job prospects is causing me a lot of stress. From what I've been told for years by family members, as well the time I have spent researching the subject on my own, is that nobody cares about...

    Should I quit school altogether

    Hello, I'm having a serious debate with myself as to whether or not I should continue going to University. Four years ago I was on the verge to complete a BA in Philosophy, but quit the program cold before entering my final semester (major motivational issues). I did some soul searching since...

    Ba or bsc in physics

    Hello, I will be entering my first year as a Bsc physics student in January. I am wondering if I should switch to a regular BA to avoid a few chemistry courses I will need to take that come along with enrolling in a Bsc degree program. I have no interest in chemistry or anything other than...

    Is maths easier to learn on your own compared to physics?

    Hi, I remember reading a bio on Robert Langland a few weeks ago and he said that when the time came for him to decide his major in school, he chose maths instead of physics. He said that he found maths easier to learn on his own when compared to physics, and this seemed to have an influence on...

    When do you begin to prove? which maths lead to proofs?

    Ok I have a much better idea now, thank you

    When do you begin to prove? which maths lead to proofs?

    Okay, so maybe a book on logic to start?

    When do you begin to prove? which maths lead to proofs?

    Hi, Could someone please tell me at which point in learning maths do you begin to write and solve proofs? I have taken high school maths so far except for discrete math. If there is a list of different maths that lead up to proof writing, please let me know of them and in which order I...
