Philosophy

A group to engage in "academic" and "armchair" philosophy. In addition, we can explore (through our discussions) Heidegger's concept of philosopher interpreting the divine, so the public can interpret the philosopher, and hence, the divine.

Philosophy is Wisdom

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language.

Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument.

The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means "love of wisdom".

 

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. ~ Socrates.

I really like Athanasios' suggestion :)

Philosophy has been my natural focus since reading Plato's Republic at the tender age of seven. My current philosophy is an apocalyptic apotheosis paradigm wherein the old Matrix is melting and individuals are finally free to realityshape a multitude of new worlds on our own holodecks.

Thanks for setting up this group, I've been wondering why no one did.  I'm a philosophy major in college.  I'll keep attentive and active in this group, and I hope we can accomplish much here together.  Perhaps we can post dates for us all to come online and chat about a topic or piece of literature in philosophy.  Just a thought...
