    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Funny..
    "...Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?"
    Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
    "At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland"
    "Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting"

    I wouldn't want to restrict philosophy's purpose to this one alone, but, based on what you (accurately) pointed out here, perhaps one of philosophy's more practical uses is to extend human thought onto new paths that eventually become disciplines all their own...

    We're all philosophers.

    Some are just more arrogant, stubborn, and, perhaps, sometimes accurate, than others.

    Glad you picked up on that.

    +1

    I believe it was that great philosopher, Hunter S. Thompson, who said something along the lines of, "I'm not so arrogant as to think I could reach the same heights without standing on the shoulders of other great men."

By studying these certain sorts of philosophies a person can come to a better of himself -- Suttree has somehow forgotten this is true and so his paragraph borders upon the ironic.
    Seriously, what has Kant done for you lately? Logical positivism? Platonic ideals?

    I find it odd that he is using a philosophical approach to justify his position -- philosophically. Hehehehe.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one entertained by the thread.

    i defer to Sir Thompson's insight. You're correct in that I have been greatly influenced ny the philosophical ideas generated by many others.

    I haven't read much of Kant. I think the only thing I've read about him had something to do with an absolute need to believe in a god -- at the time I was on the toilet and so I stopped reading because I decided there was too much shitting going on.

    His mother gives great head though. Just ask anyone.

    Indeed.

    Lol.

    But you're a full-fledged human, right? I thought all humans were philosophers. Shouldn't philosophers have studied the famous philosophies?

    There seem to be quite a few activities that are being lumped together as philosophizing:

    1) Inspiring and guiding peoples journey towards meaning, mindfulness and fulfillment. This seems to be the use Zarasthustra et al seem to be defending. I would argue most writers, teachets, parents, friends, etc engage in this activity without the logical approach of philosophy and while philosophers have also engaged in this activity, the activity itself is not philosophy.

    2) Attempting to construct systems of thought around an individuals goofy ideas. See Plato, Nietzche, Kant, Ayn Rand. You want arrogant and stubborn? See these guys. Fruitfull and useful? Not particularly.

    3) Long winded arguments in reaction to previous long winded arguments. See the progression of analytic philosophy. This is the stuff of professorships. Useful? Every once in a while it may spin off a new discipline, as Z suggested. It keeps book publishers making money as undergrads buy stuff fpr class. And it maintains a long tradition fpr what thats worth.

    "Everything my generation discussed, inwardly exposed itself to, you can say: suffered, you can also say: unfurled - all that had already been expressed and exhausted itself in Nietzsche."
    - Gottfried Benn (1886 - 1956)

    Nietzsche was, as he himself put it, dynamite: he changed my life. I think it is pretty needless to defend Plato and Kant, and Ayn Rand doesn't give a damn.
