Do you find philosophy interesting?

Do you find philosophy interesting?

I'm a self-confessed literature nerd and that extends to philosophy. I find existentialism particularly interesting, as I just took a class on it this year. Who else does?

I think philosophy requires a lot of deep thinking...but I'm more of a science person, so philosophy does not always float my boat. It's too much of logical conundrums.

I took a course last semester. It's frustrating because they never tell you the right answer! You can tell that I'm a science major because my term paper was proving a philosophical concept through quantum physics. X3

I do! I took several philosophy classes in college. Ethics was by far the most interesting and thought-provoking, IMO...

P.S. I'm a literature nerd as well (English major), so I'm always happy to chat about books

I do, or used to, but people can get really aggressive discussing it apparently (attacks ad hominem, etc.) and I'm really sensible to that so I didn't really interest myself in that outside of high school program.
Yes, it's not very smart of me.

One of my favorite pass times is reading and discussing philosophy with my partner. We are nerds too, we do a lot of reading out loud around here.

I don't study it - but I enjoy talking with people about how they see the world - pop-psychology I suppose.

No, I had to take one glass in order to fulfill my degree and I just was horrible at it. I just had a hard time with the writings and the language. I need up to date wording please! I swear that professor gave me a mercy grade because I really did try. I spent HOURS, tears, re-reading things thinking I got it then turning around to find I was so out in left field. I only have had two D's in my life, that class which I forget the title but it had something to do with modern theory and then geometry in high school. No, I HATE it lol. It was alot of Hobbes, Rousseau, Locke, and some others. I threw that damn book in the trash after the class and it was like a HUGE relief. It could have just been the particular course but after that I was done with that subject.

A while ago I decided to make up my own philosophical standpoint. It was going pretty well, though it was difficult to find a unique one. I enjoy researching various philosophies. Mainly because I come up with a great idea, get excited for about five minutes, pat myself on the back - and then completely forget it. Then I have to spend the whole of the next few days doing research just to get a handle on whatever idea popped into my head.

My husband had a philosophy class and I helped him with it, and I thought it sucked.

I loved my philosophy classes, and I spent many late nights in the dorm or the student union or at coffee shops arguing about diffderent philosophies and politics.

I think it's fascinating, but you can't make a living of it. I always wondered what happened to the kids I went to college with who majored in Philosophy. If they were able to maybe get a professor's job, that was great, but without that.... what would they do with such a degree?

But, I do think learning different philosophies helps one round out as a person, especially when taken and learned about in early adulthood. I had a professor who said that no one under 18 should take a philosophy class, because they didn't have the life experience to understand what they were learning or apply it. I don't know if he was right. But, it was an interesting theory.

I also dated one of my Philosophy professors.... an Ethics professor. No seriously.

I'm always thinking and expanding thoughts with others each and every day! I consider myself to be open to discussion at any point in time, I love to hear others interpretations on the world as well as give my own. For that matter I love history and mythology as well! It's just all so fascinating to me!
