Is it possible for you to live without a philosophy? I realized that for me it would be impossible and depressing to not have a philosophy of my own. Then I started thinking if this is because the core values are put together in my mind and they form this philosophy. Is the philosophy only the values? Could these be separated? If I work against my philosophy, I work against my values. From the animal perspective that is about the same as not following your instinct. Then again, there are lots of values that are wrong from the animal perspective. That implies that there are wrong philosophies. Wrong in the way they deny the animal side of us and deprive us from our animal needs. This would mean that all philosophies that are applicable have to be based on the animal side of us. Does that mean that philosophy is only a detour to instincts?
So, to my questions. What is the reason you have a philosophy and would it be possible to get rid of it? If you started now to put down your life philosophy, would you succeed?
