I only have enough time in my life for one.
To be fair, smashing your head does not actually refute anything and I have no doubt that you are capable of an actual response that will describe your point of view more fully and possibly even persuade others that studying philosophy is a worthwhile pursuit.
Majoring in Philosophy?
you know what
this is not the 18th century
if it was
I would mayor in Philosophy....otherwise? no
Are you saying the few seconds it takes you to relieve yourself watching pornography is preventing you from analysing life more fully from a philosophical perspective?
Augmenting one's abilities to reason, think clearly and arrive at satisfying resolution of existential questions holds no interest for today's American society. Money is the only question, and the only answer.
To be clear, I am financially secure regardless of the outcome of my endeavor.
Philosophy need not be limited to existential questions. Practicality can also serve as a grounding force of reason. I myself have been reminded of this by life far more times than I care to admit.
Question 1: Why do you need to go back to school to learn? Can't you read a book? Or do you need to pays someone $78,000 a year to read it to you?
Question 2: Don't you mean a Philosophy of Science degree?
Question 3: Do you want to study philosophy just for the degree, for the dry abstraction, or to really understand yourself deeper?
Self improvement and increased knowledge is a good enough reason to take the course you are considering.
1. I'm not willing to spend $78,000 a year.
2. LOL. Of course. I was drunk when I typed it.
3. I find it to be an interesting subject, although I am leaning more towards something more practical in STEM.
