Underpins science? Who says? You?

Philosophy gives nothing only easy work to those who gets their snout in the trough. Thinking methods? You have to have methods to think? You just cant think I suppose? Got to have a method? What a fucking load of crap.

BTW a nice insult and reported. Please don't misspell my name. That is against the FUA.

Science is a branch of philosophy. Specifically that of empiricism that uses objective means to determine the validity of hypotheses. You are using a definition of philosophy here as one which specifically excludes science. If that is what you
mean then you need to state so otherwise your post makes no sense. And yes you do need methods to think. Otherwise subjective interpretation and objective truth cannot be distinguished from one another. For not all thinking is the same

As the man with the wooden leg said "It is a matter of pinion".

I have heard everything now; Science is a BRANCH of philosophy! What science are you talking about?

Just unbelievable. :nono: :nono:

empiricism that uses objective means to determine the validity of hypotheses

You can repeat as often as you want (against the FUA by the way) but it is still bullshit.

The more I read here, the more convinced I become that I haven't been doing anything remotely resembling philosophy on this forum for the past few years. I certainly haven't received any complaints that I've been wasting anyone's time or money. So what have I been doing all this time? :shifty:

No it is not. Philosophy is the waste of vast amounts of public money keeping a load of so called intellectuals in nice comfortable jobs where they don't have to do anything. The odd paper or article published in some obscure rag is quite sufficient. Like the crap that Teuton keeps on quoting. Stuff that no-one reads or cares about.

It is just like its brother theology a load of ancient crap that should cleaned out of all places of learning.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
