Philosophy in universities: Τhe plight of modern civilization…

No. He did not have a "philosophy degree"...
No. He did not have a “philosophy degree”…

Universities today teach students how to think.

Or at least they are supposed to do so.

Actually most of them just teach memorizing.

But even if someone decides to go study philosophy to a university which really teaches the proper way of thinking… BUT what is that “proper” way?

Philosophy is about thinking on your own.

No. He did not “study philosophy”…

Universities are mainly oriented to teaching rules. And specific theories. But theories are here to be changed, rules are here to be broken. If philosophers follow one rule, that is that there are no rules. Philosophy studies things from a clean slate, no axioms or “proper” methods attached.

No one can teach that. You have to learn it your self.

Even from the very fact that people who try to study philosophy go there in order to “learn” (what? the “rules”?), they are not philosophers for me.

Philosophy historians at most.

Modern civilization is so low that tries to put into a box the very source of human knowledge. The only thing that has to remain OUT of the box.

Think freely. Try NOT to learn the rules!!! _

First Cause vs. String Theory, M-Theory 1-0

People look at modern scientific theories like the String Theory of the Membrane Theory (M-Theory) and call them “elegant”. They praise Science for having these “excellent” examples of innovative thinking and look upon the scientists who first formulated them. But how blind can a person be?

How can you look at theories demanding 11 dimensions which you do not have yet seen, or multiple Universes which you will never see and tag them “elegant”? If these are elegant theories, then how do the “not elegant” theories look like? It is really funny to know that the same people who name these theories “elegant” and “simple” and the same people who refuse to accept the simplest idea of all: that the cosmos has a (First) Cause…

Some times simplicity is right in front of our eyes, but we refuse to look at it.
