I'll say it again; It is time for philosophy to become the king of all our sciences?
Philosophy seems cool at the moment.
Yes, it's everywhere; From Google's driverless cars, to youtube channels and even the NBC sitcom "The Good Place" where a young girl dies, get a ticket to heaven and an old philosopher helps make her a better person. Crazy I know.
What I feel is cool about it all is that it never really stopped being cool for me.
Classical philosophy often presents itself in popular culture movies like "The Matrix" and "Inception".
Everyone knows "The Matrix" presents the classic "brain in a vat" question.
But what got me interested in philosophy?
At University I studied science, but found none of the fundamental questions were being answered there for me.
I studied a room-mates philosophy books, and found something much more fundamental that offered me immediate gratification. I remember feeling really estatic and almost passing into a relaxed state afterwards.
Suddenly it wasn't about getting a corporate job with my degree anymore, but to try and become a better person.
I finally found a way out of my own emotional maze, and believed I had found the king of all our sciences.
People could indeed logically deduce their own emotional migraines and escape their own Matrix.
I found it all helped with my study problems, relationship problems and also left a little spare to keep my writers block in check.
I think it's really important that we teach philosophy to young children as it makes great sense for them to be smarter and have a stronger emotional intelligence (EQ) overall.
Arise philosophy, the true king of all the sciences in my eyes.
