“Philosophy ……

June 15, 2013

“Philosophy … makes a person think – think about the basic foundations of his/her outlook, his/her knowledge, his/her beliefs. It makes one inquire into the reasons for what one accepts and does, and into the importance of one’s ideas and ideals, in the hope that one’s final convictions, whether they remain the same or whether they change as a result of this examination, will at least be rationally held ones.”
