For my third installment I watched the video “What is Philosophy for?” In my life if I had ever heard someone mention philosophy my brain would instantly explode. I could not imagine anyone who would ever want to learn about philosophy, and then I enrolled in the course. After taking this class and watching this video I am now aware that philosophers are not all crazy information obsessed people, but instead they are people who literally love wisdom. I assumed that to be a philosopher you had to know just about everything, or at least have an answer to every question. I now know that philosophers are just about the only people who are actually okay with not knowing and look forward to figuring the questions of life out. In the video it said that philosophers are concerned with “living and dying well.” I see this statement to be very true. The video also mentioned how walking is something that can also help clear the mind and allow better understanding on the questions philosophers tend to ask themselves.
recommend it to anyone I can.
