The fear of philosophy (and death)…

Many people claim that they are “not interested in philosophy”. However the true reason behind this phenomenal indifference is something more deep, something more profound and serious: The fear of dying. Philosophy is mainly related to themes having to do with existence, reality, life, being et cetera. Talking about these things can be frustrating since they all remind you of your temporal existence in this world. Who really wants to think about death? However not thinking about death can have more negative results, since at some point in time all of us will HAVE TO deal with the inevitable. Why avoid the unavoidable? Why not talk or think about the main event in our lives?

Philosophizing is more than just spending your time. It is about being brave enough to deal with what defines us as human beings.
