Philosophy, in its final form is truth, or at least you could argue this. Things such as justification of genocide and "other horrors" are not end products of philosophy, but manipulating philosophy and stopping before the end to prove what you want to justify.Originally posted by wuliheron
Some say philosophy is the pursuit of truth, but this pursuit of truth has been used to justify genocide and countless other horrors. If that is the "truth", I want nothing to do with it. I'll go back to talking to my floor instead, at least it never lets me down or led me astray. :0)
I also don't think some philosophies apply to our industrialized world. I think our minds work, through philosophy, in a natural way, which would not include how we live today.
